  • Heck yes they do! Got one after giving birth to my first and got a wonderful second after delivering my 2nd. The hurt more than my stitches! I would recommend prep-H with witch hazel or tucks pads. They helped me out a ton! Get to feeling better soon!

  • sticking out tongueOH I hate those damn things!!

    I used to take the always brand pantiliners, soak them with witch hazel, then put in a ziploc bag (don't stack them up or they will stick together) and put them in the freezer.Then apply it to the hemorrhoids. Don't laugh, it works! Sitz baths work too, hottest water you can stand. Add some epsom salts if you want. Just sit in it for a while. And use some cream on them during the day.

    I've never had 'em (4 kids, 3 of them VBAC), so I can't say I feel your pain :( Just *Hugs*
