Hi, just after some advice on hemorrhoids. I'm 26 weeks pregnant and am lucky enough to have developed quite a big hemorrhoid.
I don't really want to go to the doctors for it to be looked at so was wondering what other mamas have done to get rid of them or at lest shrink them in size.

Speak to the pharmacist, embarrassing I know. I developed one during 2nd pregnancy and after pushing her out it became more uncomfortable to sit down. I bought anusol over the counter, plus keep fluid levels up and don't strain on the toilet so plenty of fresh fruit and veg.

Re: Haemorrhoids, help
Lots and lots of water, fresh fruit, don't strain and press on the area with a cloth soaked in witch hazel a few times a day.

Proctosedyl - can get it over the counter at the chemist, fine to use during pregnancy. Don't strain when going to the loo, you could try flushable wipes which won't be as harsh on the area as normal loo paper....
Hope it goes away, but don't be surprised if it comes back when you give birth!!

Anusol, Panadol, fibre, and flushable wipes. Good luck, it's nasty business isn't it?!

Mine had a clot in it, so the Dr had to nick it to let it out... He also recommended Elma cream 30 mins before going to the toilet, a stool softener, heaps of fresh fruit, and a step for the toilet for my feet. Good luck! They're horrible

Proctosedyl... Awesome stuff! I had big ones after giving birth, and the stuff was great! Keep it in the fridge for extra relief
