The Anus Is Swollen At 32 Weeks Pregnant?
In the morning, when I was pregnant at 32 I started to feel something uncomfortable in my anus, it turned out that after I checked it was hemorrhoids, but at that time I did not take medication and the pain and swelling went away on its own, now I am 37 weeks pregnant. Over the week my anus was swollen, I consulted a general practitioner but there was no effective medicine, only pain relievers and vitamin B complex were given, what do you think is a powerful drug so that my anus doesn’t swell r nThank you
Hello Mrs. Mamas.
Thank you for the question.
Many changes occur when a woman becomes pregnant. One of them is hemorrhoid. Most of the piles will appear during the 3rd trimester or 6-9 months of pregnancy. Some of the factors that trigger the occurrence of hemorrhoids during pregnancy are hormonal changes and increased pressure in the abdominal cavity. Another factor is already suffering from hemorrhoids before pregnancy occurs. Hemorrhoid is also associated with the habit of straining due to not eating enough fibrous food.
The therapy that can be given at this time is only to reduce the symptoms. Symptoms include itching, pain, swelling, and bleeding. Most pregnant women with hemorrhoids succeed in the following ways:
multiply eat fibrous foods such as vegetables and fruit
consume more water
use a dirt softener
Hemorrhoid pain relievers can be in the form of lotions
don't sit too long
soak with warm water
Most of the women, the hemorrhoid will heal by itself after giving birth. However, it can also continue after giving birth due to straining during normal delivery.
If the hemorrhoid is very disturbing, you should consult your obstetrician.
That's my explanation, hopefully it will answer the question.
