Hi i'm back using ehealth as i'm nearly 9 months pregnant with my second baby only a year after my first daughter Raven was born..I have two swollen piles coming out of my bottom and they are very painfull and make me bleed sometimes when going to the toilet.My problem is this....not only am i absolutly terrified to give birth this time around (family say thats because i now know what to expect),as i had a terrible Episiotomy which burst open and had to be re-stitched and then got infected,i was in agony for weeks...but I'm also scared to death of while I'm pushing out baby number two in about 2weeks time I'm obviously going to make the piles worse with all the strain of pushing..Bassically i'm scared to have a bunch of grapes hanging out of my backside. The doctors and midwifes don't seem bothered much to try and help me and ive tried all the creams and pessaries under the sun...salt baths...ice packs..ect. I'm so unhappy i cry all the time and i really am down and depressed.I dont know what to do.Please any advice (without people being sarcastic) would be greatly apreciated.Thankyou,JadeXX

I dont have nearly as bad as you make is sound but my doctor told me that i could always use the creams for hemmroids or get portable baby wipes that are flushable and use them instead of toilet paper and it really does help a lot.

hemorrhoids and pregnancy
im going on 35 weeks and im expierencing the same thing. this is my first pregnancy and the second time i have had hemrhoids within the past 2 months. i am also terrified of giving birth natuarally as well. the first time i had the hemrhoids i could understand why i had them i was pushing my bowel movements out but this time the just popped out of no where, and this time they are bleeding, and im so scared. i saw some photos online of how bad they can get if not treated well, and it shocked me, some as big as a fist, i nearly fainted but i did cry. i cry everynite when my babys father puts the cream inside my bottom cus it hurts so bad. plus i feel as though i am hurting the baby too. if anybody can give me some advice on to helping this matter out write me PS- i do use those witch hazel pads and creams they help but not good enough. is there another way?

Hemorhoids
I am 34 weeks pregnant and also have two thrombose hemorhoids. I too had this problem before I was pregnant and even had some removed. I went to the doc a couple of days ago and he said witch hazel and all the creams will not work. He gave me a steroid cream to use once a day only and 5% lidocaine cream to numb it. It has been wonderful! He did not want to remove them because of me being so far along. He was afraid the pain of removing would be worse than the pain of the hemorhoids. He said it should start to subside. I too am very scared of giving birth. I know these will be worse or I''ll have new ones. This doc by the way, was not my OB, he was a specialist my OB referred me to.

piles during pregnancy
after every bowel movement, try pushing the haemmoroids inside the anus with use little gel or oil on your fingers..though it sounds yucky, it helps to be pain free.eating an american corn(boiled with salt) daily and taking a medicine called looze(15 ml) will help passing stools easily everyday..consider the option of hypnobirthing for childbirth .

I got really horrible hemorrhoids when I was about 7 months pregnant and only got worse after I had my boy. I cried on a daily basis wondering if they'd ever get better. I remember sitting on the toilet and almost blacking out from the pain.. I decided to write a blog about my experience with hemorrhoids in hope that It can be helpful to soemone else dealing with the same issue. Best of luck:)

If you still have the piles after pregnancy, try inform yourself about Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization (or THD method). It's a minimally invasive type of surgery which is usually performed in day case surgery in quite a few hospitals. Basically, the arteries supplying the hemorrhoids with blood are ligated (hence the swelling goes away) and if there is any prolapsed tissue, it is lifted as well.
No tissue is cut or removed with this procedure and the whole intervention is carried out in the area above the dentate line (which is the area without any sensory nerves, so you don't feel any pain).
Try inform yourselves about the treatment, it also seems to have much less complications than conventional surgery (but at the same time it's more effective than home made remedies).

hemmorids
hi, im at 36 weeks pregnant and have just discovered i have a hemmorhoid as well. i have never experienced this before and thought my situtation was serious until i started reading some of the replies on hear and my heart goes out to alot of you. try not to focus to much on the fact that its there and do NOT clean the area consistently as that only irritates it more. i hope you all find some sort of relief soon especially for the females that are due any day now like my self.

Hi, i developed piles about 2 weeks ago, about 5 of them - Very painful. I tried Anusol which didn't work, i went to the doctors yesterday morning and she prescribed SCHERIPROCT ointment. You use it first thing in the morning, last thing at night and when you have a bm, and it seems to have worked! I'm able to push the veins back in and all except one go. It's nowhere near as painful and the doctor said that they should go once the baby has been born, as the pressure of her is what's caused them. They only seem to have appeared at the same time as i noticed that my bump seems to have moved down, so fingers crossed that they disappear after!

hemorrhoids
hemorrhoids during labour is very painful. epidural did not take away that kind of pain , i had epidurals with both labours and could still feel the pressure in my bottom but it was the roids that made it so painful. my advice is to really get them under control before going into labour not to scare you i just dont want anyone to experience what i went through. after giving birth the roids were very big and swollen my whole area down there had severe bruising as both labors babies were lying spine on spine. i was given ultraproct ointment which did help after a week they were not visible.good luck i really feel for you all and just try and think when your holding your baby in your arms it was all so worth it!

Hemmoroids
I've seen this happen to many pregnant women.
You can get a cream & push the piles in & do your kegel exercises everyday.
99 % goes away on it's own with proper care.
Don't carry anything heavy when you are pregnant & avoid putting too much pressure
on your hips area during sleep... elevate the legs at night.
Basically, learn to relax your muscles around your anus or anal.
You can do this with massages. Just stick your middle finger into your anus around the opening & massage it or have your husband or a midwife do it.
Nothing to fear... get the proper treatment.

piles
I'm 35 weeks and have two piles. The doctor prescibed cream two weeks ago but it hasn't worked, I rang surgery today and all they said was they are not going to go till after birth. I normally push them back up but the bigger they get the harder it is and they really hurt. I'm to worried bout birth as I'll be in too much pain to care but I'm dreading the piles I'll have after lol. Try not to worry, surely a baby has to be worth it right? I think so. There's a lot worse to go through! Good luck and congrats! X

Hemorids 34 weeks
No one appears to give their experience plus outcome. I am 34 weeks and having had a stomach bug had bad diorreha after which I developed a massive external hemorrhoid that was so painful I couldn't go to work, couldn't even sit. Had an appointment with my doc and showed it to him. He commented that it must have been excruciating... It was. He prescribed scheriproct suppositories and an injectable anaesthetic. I was really uncomfortable even trying to use them as I was so sore and couldn't imagine being able to insert either. I had a bath and braved it. It isn't as bad as you think. It's worse thinking about it. Anyway no improvement for 3 days couldn't sleep and didnt want to eat as it might make me want to go to the loo. Absolutely at my wits end and so miserable thinking this thing would never go. I rang the doc and he said to persist with the treatment. The anestetic was a waste of time, better to simply use the suppository. On the 4th day it eventually felt a bit better, still the same size but the pain was not as intense. And I did have to use the bathroom it wasn't that bad just don't let yourself get constipated I got a bottle of lactose and it does the trick. Also ice and witch hazel ease the pain. I'm not sure if it will go away now on its own but it does improve with the prescription meds. Over the counter ones won't work. The doc told me that I may as well be applying holy water!! He was right. Also he said that the creams are a waste of time, you need to reduce the swelling from the inside with the suppositories. I'll update later but that's the story to date. X

Well im glad im not alone altho it feels like it. Im due tomorrow and have 3 roids one which is now really overly swollen from me trying to push it back up and irritating it. Now i am on bed rest as it hurts like crazy just doing normal day to day stuff. This is my 5th baby and i havent experienced anything like it before. The doctors and midwives say ohh its normal and have panadol - well bright spark i have obviously been having that and it dosent work a bit so now im on codene. I am overly stressed and am panicking about giving birth, its coming down to me wanting a c-sect. Ive tryed the salt bath thing and a few creams and now i have been told theyre here to stay til after babys out!!! Any suggestions on the best way for labour???

Ask the doc for the Proctosedyl even a couple of days of taking it will help.
