Enough said right? 2 months after my second child they are still an issue. Will they ever go away?

  • They do usually get better... witch hazel on a little pad (like one of the make up applicator rounds) is heavenly. Use as liberally and as often as needed! WH was my best friend for a while there, so soothing and it really helps to shrink the hemorrhoids.

    And of course avoid straining, keep your stools soft with lots of fruits, stay well hydrated, and keep the area super clean. Hope you feel better soon, they can be so painful!

  • I think most of us on here have them.

  • nope, mine never went away and I'm kind of thinking it is time to see a doc about getting those suckers removed. Collinsky is on the money with her info.
