Hi,

I’m 30 weeks pregnant and have just began to
notice that I’m getting some hemorrhoids. I drink
a lot of water and am careful with what I eat but
I still have them. My husband and I are really
tight on money because we are saving up for your
baby and we are moving into a new apartment in a
couple of weeks time.

What could I use to get rid of them without
having to go out and buy pricey creams?

Hi Kelly,

You are at the exact time when so many women get
hemorrhoids. As far as cheap solutions go – I
would recommend a natural hemorrhoid cure because
you can use these from your own home and they are
not expensive like creams etc.

If you decide that natural home hemorrhoid cures
are right for you, you have a couple of high
quality options to consider. The first is a
product called H Miracle that is actually a guide
to curing hemorrhoids using a range of food,
herbs and spices that you can buy from most
supermarkets. The second option is a homeopathic
hemorrhoid cure called Venapro. Venapro and H
Miracle both work to strengthen underlying
weaknesses that originally caused your
hemorrhoids and both provide rapid pain relief.

Venapro is a bit more expensive than H Miracle so
perhaps in your case H Miracle will be a better
solution. Last time I checked, H Miracle cost
around US$35.

A couple of things that you can do right now to
help relieve the pain caused by your hemorrhoids
are:

1. Apply a small amount of vinegar to the
hemorrhoid. This will help relieve any itching
and bring down the swelling.

2. Minimize pain and swelling by applying Aloe
Vera gel to the hemorrhoid.

These two tips won’t totally cure hemorrhoids in
most cases but they may make them much more
bearable!

the affordable home hemorrhoid cures I
recommended.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

When trying to pass stool, there is straining and
a feeling of discomfort – I’m really struggling
to pass my stools. Lately I’ve been noticing
small amounts of blood on the toilet paper after
wiping and yesterday I saw some blood in the
toilet after passing a stool. Also the stool is
pellet like and contains mucus. I used to have
hemorrhoids about 4 months ago but they seemed to
clear up after I used creams for about 4
months…Do you think its possible that my
hemorrhoid has returned?

P.S – I’m 23 years old.

Hey Stacey,

This could definitely be a hemorrhoid. In
general, the most common hemorrhoid symptoms are
blood on the stool, blood in the toilet bowl,
pain when sitting down or moving around, itching,
mucus emissions, and a feeling of being unable to
finish passing the stool during bowel movement.
You definitely quality for a few of these common
symptoms so I’d say it’s pretty likely that
you’ve had a relapse, most likely because you
stopped using the creams. This is actually a very
common situation for people who use hemorrhoid
creams because almost all creams are work to hide
the symptoms of hemorrhoids, they don’t do a lot
for strengthening the weaknesses that caused the
problem in the first place.

What I suggest you do is increase the amount of
fiber in your diet (eat more fruits, veges etc),
increase the amount of water your drinking – aim
for 8 glasses per day, and get about 20 minutes
of light exercise (walking is fine) 4 days per
week if possible.

Taking this action should definitely help relieve
your hemorrhoids and may even cure them entirely.
If this fails, I suggest trying a natural
hemorrhoid cure, a couple are reviewed here:

Good luck,

Hey,

I have a small hemorrhoid and it isn’t too
painful, just itchy. I just worked out that it
was a hemorrhoid today so I’ve taken the
following precautions – I don’t wipe (I rinse in
the shower afterwards), plan to eat more fiber,
and am avoiding sitting down for long periods of
time.

Will it take more than a week or 2 to clear up?
And am I doing everything right? Is there
anything else I can do?

Janet Wilkins, Truckee, California, USA

Hey Janet, you’re doing everything right – good
for you!

Regarding how long hemorrhoids can last – I know
people who have suffered for over 2 years before
finally curing them, others have found that they
come and go a lot, and some people who actively
work to cure them hemorrhoids can rid them
totally in under a week.

Just one tip that I thought might be useful, as
an alternative to having a shower after passing a
stool, you might find it easier to simply wet
some toilet paper or preferably tissues and
gently use these to clean the area. It’s
definitely a lot more comfortable doing this than
using toilet paper and more convenient (at times)
than having a shower.

Regarding if there’s anything additional that you
can do, I would recommend you get some light
exercise 4 times a week if possible (a 20 minute
walk is fine). This will help maintain your
metabolism in good shape.

If you want to try a hemorrhoid cure, I recommend
you consider something natural – these are almost
always cheaper option and they are readily
accepted by your body which means you won’t have
any harmful side-effects.

Hemorrhoids and Their Symptoms

April 5, 2009

When you speak of hemorrhoids you will hear of bloody stools and an itchy anus being the main hemorrhoid symptoms.

The two most common groups of hemorrhoids are known as Internal and External hemorrhoids, each have their own hemorrhoid symptoms.

External Hemorrhoid Symptoms

Located outside the anal canal, the external hemorrhoid is the easier to find than the internal hemorrhoid. It is characterized by the clump of skin that is located near the opening of your anal canal. The more advanced type of this hemorrhoid is bright red, the lesser developed is blue. When walking or sitting down this may because you some pain and even lying down may be uncomfortable. The sizes of the hemorrhoid differ by its development from severe, where it can get as big as a golf ball and not so severe where it can be quite small.

Symptoms of Internal Hemorrhoids

In most cases, internal hemorrhoids will not be as easy to notice as external hemorrhoids. Normally to find this type of hemorrhoid, you will notice that you have bloody stools or that there is blood on your toilet paper. You may even notice that you have some mucus, itching and may feel that you constantly need to go to the bathroom.

The most common of these hemorrhoid symptoms is itching, which is caused because of the mucus that seeps from the hemorrhoid. In addition, the feeling of having to use the bathroom constantly comes from the senses around the anus can feel the hemorrhoids and will think that it is a stool and make you feel as though you have to go, when in reality you may not.

In general, you may not get as much pain from the internal hemorrhoid as you would if you had an external hemorrhoid, unless you are experiencing the most severe type. The earlier stages of this condition may not even produce any pain, however constant itching may give you some discomfort.

Treating Hemorrhoid Symptoms

When you are sure that the pain and discomfort you have is from hemorrhoids, you will want to search for some type of hemorrhoid cure as soon as possible. The failure to find an effective cure for hemorrhoids will lead to the more painful type of hemorrhoid.

You will find that by simply increasing your intake of fiber may help to heal the hemorrhoid symptoms. The eating of fruit, vegetables and fiber rich pastas and cereals will help to make stools softer and to keep down instances of aggravation and pain as well.

Options you have for curing Hemorrhoids

1. Talk to your doctor or go to the pharmacy to receive a cream to help relieve the pain and reduce the swelling of your hemorrhoid. Creams and ointments must be applied many times a day and may cause some burning sensations, however they do not provide a cure to hemorrhoids, they are a temporary pain killer.

2. Sometimes when you have a more severe form of hemorrhoids you may need hemorrhoid surgery. This is usually a last resort as recovery takes 4 weeks or more, it is extremely painful and costs between $1000 US and $1500 US or more.

3. Natural remedies are another hemorrhoid cure that is the most recommended of the three. They work particularly well at not only ridding you of hemorrhoid symptoms but also are known for being a permanent cure for the condition of hemorrhoids. Many people will tell you about a program called H Miracle which has particularly great reviews and helped many thousands of people cure the hemorrhoid problems.

Internal Hemorrhoids

February 15, 2009

Internal hemorrhoids are inflamed blood vessels that occur in the walls of the anal canal. They can occur as small as a pea and can be as large as a ping-pong ball in the most severe cases.

Internal hemorrhoids often cause severe pain, especially during bowel movement and are commonly identifed by noticing blood on the stool or toilet paper. Internal hemorrhoids frequently cause itching which can range from a pleasant tickle to something totally unbearable.

Although it is still not known exactly what causes internal hemorrhoids, a range of frequently related factors which often lead to internal hemorrhoids have been identified. A few of the main ones are explained below.

Constipation:Those who are affected by constipation for long amounts of time are highly exposed to hemorrhoids. Straining excessively during bowel movement (as caused by constipation) often causes ruptures in blood vessels which lead to hemorrhoids.

Hard Stools: Hard stools which hurt to pass can lead to internal hemorrhoids due to increased shearing force on the internal anal canal. To avoid hard stools try to eat high fiber foods such as cereals and vegetables.

Pregnancy: Internal hemorrhoids affect up to approximately 40% of pregnant women at some stage during or after the pregnancy. This is due to an increase in blood flow and blood pressure while caring the baby in the womb. Internal hemorrhoids can also occur due to the straining during childbirth.

Lifting heavy objects: People (such as those who workout in gyms) are more likely to suffer from hemorrhoids as they are placing high pressure on their veins each time they lift heavy weights or objects. Squats and Leg Presses are probably the most risky exercises to perform due to the close proximity of the muscle group being worked to the veins in the anal canal.

Diarrhea: Prolonged periods of diarrhea are often related to the occurance of internal hemorrhoids. If you suffer from diarrhea for an extended peroid of time you should see your doctor or try the treatment methods mentioned below.

A number of different techniques exist for treating internal hemorrhoids. Choosing the appropriate one for you may depend on things such as cost, recovery time, and the severity of your hemorrhoids.

Surgical hemorrhoid cures can be very painful and very expensive. Starting at around US$1200 (price may vary depending on location) and with a recovery time of up to 4 weeks they are not convenient or realistic for everyone. Hemorrhoid surgery will definitely cure your current hemorrhoids but there is no guarantee that hemorrhoids wont return later to bother you again.

Creams and gels are interesting because some people have got results using them while others complain of nasty side effects such as burning and stinging. These side effects can become extremely painful and indeed complicate the hemorrhoids further (not to mention cause you a lot of additional pain and suffering). Most creams and gels target elimination of the pain and other symptoms that are common in hemorrhoid sufferers ” they dont target the underlying causes of hemorrhoids.

An alternative to internal hemorrhoid removal surgery and creams that we highly recommend you try before considering surgery (and using creams) is H-Miracle. H-Miracle is a book written by an ex-sufferer about natural cures for internal hemorrhoids (and external hemorrhoids) regardless of the severity. The H-Miracle website even claims that significant results can be seen in as little as 4 days.

Hemorrhoids in Toddlers – How You Can Help

February 15, 2009

Hemorrhoids are a caused due to inflammation of blood vessels in and around the anal canal. Anyone of any age can get hemorrhoids (even toddlers and young children) although they are most common in people aged 40 ” 65. Toddlers unlucky enough to get hemorrhoids face a lot of pain and struggle. Symptoms of hemorrhoids in toddlers include bleeding from the rectum, itching, burning and pain during bowel movement. If you see blood coming from the anal canal you should get your child to a medical professional as soon as possible.

No one wants to get hemorrhoids and they are even worse for children than for adults. This is mainly because children dont know how to deal with having a hemorrhoid emotionally and they can also sustain long term physical damage to their bodies. Constipation is the leading cause of hemorrhoids in toddlers and as such toddlers it should be avoided at all costs. If constipation can be avoided in toddlers its likely hemorrhoids will be also.

If you suspect your toddler is becoming constipated, you should get them an appropriate stool softener right away. The best thing to do to avoid constipation is maintain a healthy diet comprising of plenty of fruit and vegetables, plenty of water (at least 8 glasses per day), and plenty of exercise. Fiber softens stools naturally while exercise helps keep metabolism high. Water also plays an important part in softening stools.

What to do if Your Toddler Has Hemorrhoids

If you find that your toddler does have hemorrhoids the best thing you can start to do is minimize their pain as much as you can. Make sure they stick to the three things mentioned in the previous paragraph (fiber, water, and exercise) as these will aid in healing the hemorrhoid. You can also do some other things to ensure that they are as comfortable as possible which I will now explain.

Take care to clean the anus with a very soft cloth or tissue. It sometimes helps to dampen the cloth before cleaning. Keep the area as clean as possible to avoid further irritation.

Apply Aloe Vera gel to the hemorrhoids to reduce the burning and stinging pains associated with the hemorrhoids. Avoid having your child sitting or standing for long periods of time as this increases the blood pressure in the blood vessels around the anal canal which can lead to further damage and prevent proper healing.

Soothe the hemorrhoid pain further by applying an ice pack to the rectum ” this also helps to reduce the size of the hemorrhoid temporarily. Some people also find that giving the child a warm sitz bath helps to relieve pain.

For fast effective hemorrhoid treatment and pain relief a guide called H Miracle is fantastic. It has been used to help thousands of adults, and children worldwide. H Miracle is a natural hemorrhoids cure that is perfect for children as it has no negative side effects that come with so many over the counter chemical based products.
