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!!

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.....
