Hemorrhoids and pregnancy

Pregnancy and hemorrhoidsAccording to the College of Family Physicians of Canada, most women who suffer from hemorrhoids during pregnancy will find relief quickly after giving birth. As the length of a pregnancy increases, women are more likely to find that they have developed hemorrhoids. If you are pregnant or nursing and considering the use of natural hemorrhoids remedies, you’ll want to consult your doctor first.

An estimated 25 to 35 percent of pregnant women are affected by hemorrhoids due to hormonal changes and an increase in abdominal pressure. Not surprisingly, these issues are most common during the third trimester of pregnancy. You may be suffering if you experience any pain or bleeding during a bowel movement. Before making any assumptions, you’ll want to be properly diagnosed by a professional.

You may want to consider making changes to your dietary intake. Pregnant women may find relief by increasing the amount of fiber and liquids they consume. Since it is likely that your hemorrhoids will diminish once you give birth, you’ll want to think twice about having them medically removed.

A product women may want to consider for hemorrhoid relief during pregnancy is Hem-Miracle Cream. This is a topical treatment which may provide anti-inflammatory effects to individuals suffering from hemorrhoids. You will simply need to cleanse and dry the area before applying the ointment. Be sure to apply at night and about three additional times throughout the day.

As your baby grows, the uterus puts added pressure on your veins and can cause them to become inflamed and swollen. Even if you’ve made it through your entire pregnancy hemorrhoid-free, childbirth is another potential agitator. In this instance, the issue should quickly clear up on its own.
