So I was lucky and made it through my pregnancy without these stupid horrible things but after giving birth TADA they made their appearance. What can I do to help with hemmeroids? Im 7 weeks PP and pretty freaking constipated as well but the time has come where I am starting to go #2 more but it is excruciatingly painful and theres a bit of blood as well from the hemmeroids And also the fact that I have never seen poop that thick around. SORRY that was gross but It's like im giving birth out my bum and its painful! I have my OB appointment on Friday finally but are there some things I can do before then to try and help out my little problem. I know I need to up my fiber for the constipation but the hemmeroids are killing me OT HAH so cute I read out the last part as I was typing it and Travis let out a little giggle for the first time! This kid...hes the perfect timing to make things funny as hell
Stool softeners. They are a lifesaver.
Also, I had horrible HORRIBLE hemorrhoids after birth, they were swollen and hurt like hell. I tried every classical medicine to get them to stop hurting, even prescription drugs, but nothing helped. My midwife gave me a tip that was a life saver: get some black tea bags (like earl grey), let them soak in hot water for a good while, take them out, and put them in the fridge. Every 1-2 hours, pop a cold tea bag from the fridge onto your butt. The cold relieves the pain and the theine in the tea reduces swelling. I was hemorrhoid free 2 days after doing this
