I was seriously straining to do a BM tonight (I am really constipated, not sure why). I should have known better, but I was in so much pain I just wanted to try and get it out (which didn't happen). So now after making it through 2 pregnancies and childbirths hemorrhoid-free, I just gave myself one. :( Since it just happened, is there anything I can do right away that might make it go away or not be so severe?
Everything hurts down there right now, so I can't tell if this is going to be a painful problem or not....

Oh, my gosh!! I get the worst constipation from all 3 of my pregnancies. I can't advise on which medicines you can take because I'm not sure if all the ones I tried were 100% compatible with pregnancy. I feel like you could take stool softeners but not the things that induce the urge to go - or something like that. There are also some supplements you can take - and some to avoid. Sorry, mama!!
Troll? Here's me...

I'm not even pregnant! This just came out of nowhere. After about 6 doses of laxatives and 3 doses of stool softeners I was finally able to start getting some things out. I couldn't leave the house all the next day. I iced the hemorrhoid and it looks and feels a lot better now, so that is a relief.
I have no idea what brought this on; I've almost never been constipated in my life. I'm scared and I think I'm going to keep taking stool softeners for a while.....
