  • Don't know but start taking a stool softner & you won't have hemorrhoids at all.

  • Are you sure they are hemorrhoids? A hemorroid that big ought to hurt like crap especially when you poop. Hemorrhoids are swollen vessels and once you have them they are prone to returning. They usually shrink but some people have to have surgery to remove that part of the vessel. If you use a hemorrhoid cream they should shrink so you will be more comfortable. There are some remedies and info here

  • They never actually go away, they may not swell up as much normally. But sorry to say, they will there for life. I had them before I ever got pregnant...which made them worse. Now anytime I've got diarrhea they cause problems, it's just basically a matter of watching what you eat.

  • I had hemorrhoids with both my pregnancies...mostly at the end and as soon as the baby was out they went away both times. They do act up occassionally but only when I'm dehydrated or oddly enough if I drink a mixed drink with Vodka.
