Hemorrhoids Get Worse After Giving Birth Normally?
Good afternoon! I have a history of hemorrhoid since I was a child, when I was in college in 2014, I had the hemorrhoid surgery, after I had surgery … my hemorrhoid came again … now I have given birth normally 2 months ago … However, my hemorrhoid actually grew bigger and chapters come out fresh blood and clot..how is the solution huh and what medicine can i take to reduce the hemorrhage page?
Good evening Melisa, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Hemorrhoid is a condition where there is an enlargement or swelling of the blood vessels in the end of the large intestine or anus. This disease occurs due to an increase in pressure on the blood vessels where the increase in pressure can be caused by:
Straining too hard or too often Sitting too long or squatting in the toilet Diarrhea or long constipation Obesity Pregnancy Sexual intercourse through the anus Low-fiber diet Keep in mind that despite surgery, certain types of hemorrhoid surgery can still cause the hemorrhoid to recur at some time in the future especially if the causes as mentioned above are not completely eliminated. Similarly, when you give birth normally, the pressure on the blood vessels will be higher due to pressure from the baby's head and also when straining, so the blood vessels will swell and eventually come out.
If the blood vessels are out enough and do not re-enter or cause a lot of bleeding, then the best way is recommended to do surgery again to remove the hemorrhoid. Therefore, you should check your condition with a surgeon for a re-examination and determine what actions should be given to you.
In the meantime, do not take any medication without any clear doctor's advice. Avoid things that can increase the pressure as mentioned above. Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits to smooth bowel movements. If more blood comes out and causes complaints such as dizziness, shortness of breath, or pale skin, you should immediately go to the hospital emergency room to get first aid.
I hope this helps.
