embarrassing question

So this is so embarrassing but I have the worst hemorrhoids ever! This is my third pregnancy and I've never had them like this,  not at all with my first and it wasn't this bad with the second.  And they went right away after a couple days.  Any of you ladies been through this?  What is the best thing to use to treat them or get rid of them?  I could really really use from info on this thanks!  This is so horrible!  : (

Oh man I'm the same right now.  And I know my Dr said I can do prep H also she said the hydrocortisone suppositories are ok. And she also said to work on constipation that I can take colace ( I think it's called ) or warm prune juice yuck

Thanks guess I need to go get some prep h at the store tomorrow. Is it wipes or a tube of ointment?

I think they have both just wondering which one is best and works fastest

You might consider squatting to poop. If you put sturdy stools on either side of your toilet (same heights , obviously) and then squat instead of sit, it puts less strain on the whole area. Might not be possible, but it beats having to take something.

I would say the ointment.. I want surgery after pregnancy but I'm scared

Prep h comes in a lot of forms and varieties. A lot of fiber in your diet can help too. And yes retain from straining. :) ♡ hope you get some relief soon.

Thanks me too! I think its more from the pressure of the baby, he's really low. I really haven't had constipation to much but the baby is so low my pelvic bones are killing me also. Thanks for the input ladies!

I would be scared also! Do they not go away on there own? Will I end up having to get surgery to get rid of them also? I really hope not!

They won't be inflamed all the time.  But mine never fully went away.  But this is my third pregnancy. We will see what happens after I have my baby.

Ask about stool softeners?

U need to get colace. To soften stool. But u out also need to get some recta care. It is a numbing med foe the hemmroids it's the best and try to put some tucks on them at bed time and leave them there over night. I had them so bad they wanted to cut them and release the clots but I toughed it out and the recta care and tucks helped a tremendous amount
