Good luck! I hope they help. I dont think mine will ever go, but so long as the blood is not there I'm ok. And at least I know what to do next time.
Because in breast feeding, it's taking all my water- bowel movements are still hard (in more ways than one!) and so I also have a bottle of gentle laxative in the cupboard. If I haven't gone in a few days and feel the need, I have 10ml to kick start things- the last thing I want to do is be aggravating the situation now I have finally got it to calm down!

Not sure if this post is still active but I'm still battling the dreaded roids 4months postpartum. Although I'm over the worst of it, the pain comes and goes depending on my diet and water consumption. Will it ever completely go away? I'm left with what seems like a 'skin tag' when there's no pain (sorry for TMI!).
In the beginning I took these steps to ease the pain:
- Stool softener
- Ice compress
- Salt bath after bowel movement
- To pass a stool I leaned forward with my knees raised and breathed instead of pushing.
During the worst of it I felt like all my thoughts revolved around bowel movements! Trying to ease the pain, dreading the next bowel movement, running to the loo as soon as I felt the urge, and watching my diet and water intake. I'm in trouble if I don't have All-Bran everyday! Will I ever be free of the haemorrhoid and will it get worse with the next birth?

I had them after birth, putting a ice pack on it was so much relief for the pain

Sounds like you need to consult a dr koarlo. I've resigned the act that I will have to live with them forever, but I'm also not planning on having any more children.

I'm going to vouch for pushing them back in, I got them from being constipated post DD and I religiously pushed them back in each toilet stop and they went quiet quickly mine weren't too bad though.
They occur because blood gets trapped in vessels (?), if you push them back in the drain easier. Well thats what my doc told me.

Hmm, I think I might. Ouch! Pushing them back in sounds painful!
