hemmroids sorry TMI someone please help though.

Im 26 weeks and have bad hemmroids i have delt with these since my first son was born usually they go away on there own and i dont need any creme for them however this time around it doesnt seem to be going away is it safe to use over the counter hemmroid creme? Id call my dr but the office is closed and it would take forever for him to actually call back. If anyone knows that would be great please no bashing.

  • I have a list of medications from my OBGYN that are OK to take while pregnant. For hemorrhoids Preparation H, Anusol, and Tucks are OK =]

  • I had hemmroids after delivery...and used some ointment they gave me from the hospital and that helped...but I'm not sure what you can use when pregnant...I really wish I had more info for you! =(

  • I am having the same issue. I saw my doctor on Friday and she told me to use over the counter cream. It's helping already!!! Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.

  • My dr reccomended Witch Hazel, just pour some on gauze or a washcloth and hold it there for a little while. GL and hope you feel better.
