guys, my butt bleeds every single time I poop (which is once every three days or so, yes am battling a bit of constipation). Ouchhhhhhh.
I use Earth Mama's Butt Balm when I can remember (if it's a home poop, haha) and that helps some.
fiber, water, and walking. Use a foot stool when you poop so your knees are higher than your hips, and don't push.
eta: Ive dealt with painful poop issues and hemmroids for years :( I totally understand!

Me too! I have a hemorrhoid that bleeds on the *ahem* large poops, especially if I can't poop for 2 days. And then I clog the toilet.

DDCC. When I was hideously constipated, enemas worked wonders. WONDERS. Check with your HCP first, though. The sodium can cause problems for some. Stool softeners also did a lot for me.

I got tired of my signature, but I still love my children and husband and miss my little brother.
I would try magnesium citrate to bowel tolerance say 1000-1200mg a day. Most people are deficient in Mg anyway, so it could help on multiple accounts.
