Does anyone have hemmriods that WILL NOT go away? I’m assuming thats what it is. Sometimes wehn I have a bowel movement there will be bright red streaks either on the stool itself (not often) or on the toilet paper. It’s been going on for years it seems! Everytime I think they’re finally gone….boom…back again! Sometimes it’s painful…sometimes not. Anyone else have this problem??

I don’t have this problem, but if I were you I’d definitely go to a doctors office to get a professional’s opinion. Sounds horrible! I hope you get better!

See a doctor. There are over-the-counter creams and suppositories available, but if they’re bad they may need to be removed (usually either by banding or, in extreme cases (unlikely) surgery); your doctor will be able to advise you. They should also be able to advise you how to prevent them; I don’t know a huge amount but I think constipation is a big cause, so dietary changes may help prevent them reoccurring.

I have one that flares up about 3 times a year. I got mine when I was pregnant the first time. Painful and super unpleasant for about a week. I use preparation H wipes and cream. If it is consistently bothering you I’d go to the dr.

CanadianBride456: My Fiance had this problem for years. I bought him Hem Relief supplements and he said they helped a good bit, but it’s usually dietary too. I would go see a GP and/or a nutritionist. It’s definitely a recurring problem for him- if he eats really poorly for an extended period of time (months) he gets them again.

If your first thought is to consult a wedding website before going to a doctor, you need to go to a doctor.

Hyperventilate: Who peed in your wheaties this morning?
This clearly isn’t my first thought. I just wanted to see if anyone had similar experiences as me. If thats not what the wellness board is for, then why is it here?

I am not sure of the spelling, but you may have a fissure…it is my understanding that with hemorrhoids something actually sticks out of your butt or can be seen/felt (when I used to get brazillian waxed, I had lengthy discussions about butt stuff with my waxer…LOL)…a fissure is a tear that bleeds sometimes, but not others…a lot of it depends on your poop and your fiber intake…you could tear it with a large or hard poop, but then it could still bleed with softer/smaller poop because the tear is already there …
I would definitely see a doctor – but don’t panic – there are definitely things it could be that aren’t a big deal!

Hyperventilate: PEOPLE POST about everything else under the sun, so why not hemorrhoids? topics I can remember is uncut/cut penis’s, pets, friends, yeast infections, mother in laws, father in laws, brother, sister in laws.. who cares whats the difference? The list goes on.

Hyperventilate: Actually, the wellness board is under the Not Wedding Related (Non Wedding Related) tab on here, so you point is moot.
Although you being an ass on a post about asses is pretty relevant.

CanadianBride456: My brother had SEVERE hemorrhoids that he had to have surgically removed because he neglected to take care of the problem early on. I would definitely recommend seeing a doctor if they get worse!
Too Much Information, but do you strain really hard when you go #2? Maybe try a stool softener for a little while and see if that helps? I think I’ve had one or two in my life that resolved themselves when I focused on not pushing really hard.

ct2015: Hemmorhoids can be internal or external.
CanadianBride456: Given that you don’t have a diagnosis yet, discussing hemorrhoids could be premature. Chances are, it is your problem but honestly though, it is way past time for you to see a doctor.
This is the information we give out about hemmorhoids.

Sounds more like a fissure.
I had this for months before I got diagnosed with coeliac diseease (don’t worry, it’s not a symptom, more a side effect of a side effect).
Sometimes, if your straining you can pop a blood vessel back there. As long as there’s nothing funny hanging out and the blood is bright red and fresh looking, you should be fine. If the colour of the blood changes, seek medical advise instantly.
In the meantime, introduce some extra fats and fibre to your diet and see how you get on. if it’s still the same, I’d probably speak to my GP at that stage.
