  • I HOPE that this is a joke...

    If not, hemorrhoids are not contagious...they are caused by when you poop and push hard

  • You have to be kidding! A hemorrihoid is a condition where the veins in a persons rectum are inlarged and/or inflamed from pressure. It is not something you can 'catch', it's sort of like being ignorant. Even though it seems like a lot of people's not contagious!

  • NO, they are caused by pressure, from being overweight, pregnancy, pushing too hard when you have a bowel movement.

  • Uh no, hemorrhoids are vericose veins in the anus.

  • You are kidding right??? Google hemorrhoids for a better understanding of the condition - that might help you understand what they are all about if this is not a joke post!! Anal sex may irritate hemorrhoids, but they are in no way contagious!!
