A personal health question...kind of gross. adult content

Did any of you get hemorrhoids when you were pregnant(or just in general)?

I think I may have them or one or whatever. I don't know if they're considered in singular or plural or what.

Anyways, I have been experiencing some pretty severe itchiness around my anus. It seems to increase jut before I get my period. I don't know if that's connected or not but it happens every month.

What can I do to stop the itching or sooth it?
Does anyone know?

I feel awkward for even posting this.

  • There are over the counter creams that can help soothe the itching of hemarroids. Preperation H is pretty good. It shrinks the hemmarroid temporarily and numbs it to relieve the itching.

  • Get some Preparation H and Tucks pads for wiping. I didn't have an issue with them while pregnant, but have had them before.
