Hello Ovie, thanks for the question.
Hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids are diseases where swelling or enlargement of blood vessels in the end of the large intestine and anus / rectum. The actual cause is still unclear, but is thought to be related to increased pressure in the blood flow in or around the anus causing inflammation and swelling of the vessels blood of the area. Hemorrhoid complaints are experienced in many pregnant women, especially in the third trimester of pregnancy, this is due to the enlargement of the size of the fetus in the uterus so that the pressure in the blood vessels around the anus also increases and can cause swelling. If complaints are felt to be disturbing you should consult a doctor, the doctor will conduct a thorough examination of the patient. Handling is usually by administering drugs, in the form of pain relievers, laxatives, and so forth. Laxatives are intended to smooth the bowel movement so that the mother does not need to strain because straining can increase pressure in the blood vessels and aggravate the condition that occurs. Surgery is usually indicated in people with hemorrhoid complaints that are felt to be disturbing, causing clinical disorders, or lumps that are no longer can reenter. In pregnant women, surgery is rarely performed, complaints will usually improve after delivery, if the complaint persists after delivery, the doctor may recommend operating procedures. Some things that can be done to reduce complaints include:
Perform sitz bath (soaking the anal area with warm water) for 15-20 minutes 3 times a day after bowel movements to reduce pain in the anal area and speed healing
Avoid lifting heavy loads
Avoid sitting for a long time
Eat lots of fibrous food
Increase fluid consumption at least 2L / day
Do not straining too hard when defecating, defecating in a half-squat position (lifting and resting legs on a small chair while defecating on the toilet seat) can help the stool removal
Avoid the habit of delaying bowel movements
Compress the anal area with a cold compress with ice wrapped in a cloth 10-15 minutes, several times a day to reduce swelling, pain, and itching
Get enough sleep and rest
