Hi Seila,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Due to hormonal changes and fetal pressure on the rectum which often triggers constipation, pregnant women are at a higher risk of developing hemorrhoids. This can be exacerbated if before pregnancy, the mother already has hemorrhoids, although with a mild degree.


Symptoms of hemorrhoids that can be observed can vary, ranging from fresh bloody stools, discomfort (itching, pain, lump) around the anus, to the appearance of lumps, which can come and go or appear continuously due to swelling.


This of course can make the sufferer feel very uncomfortable, especially in his condition who is pregnant. For this reason, it is necessary to see a doctor directly to assess the severity and what kind of treatment is appropriate to do.


In mild conditions, the doctor may first prescribe medication to relieve hemorrhoids. One type of this drug is borraginol. This drug contains the active substances lithospermi radix extract, prednisolonum, lidocainum, aethylis aminobenzoas, and cetrimide. Its function for people with hemorrhoids is to reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and also stop bleeding. In relation to pregnancy, this drug is included in category C, which shows a negative impact in tests carried out on animals, but there has not been sufficient scientific evidence on its effect in humans. Therefore, giving borraginol during pregnancy should only be done if it is true that the benefits far outweigh the risk of side effects that it may cause. Who knows this of course the doctor who examines you directly. Therefore, consult directly with him. Or, if in doubt, you can seek a second opinion by consulting another obstetrician.


Hemorrhoids whose degree is severe enough, generally not adequately treated with medication. In this case, to prevent swelling or signs of decay (incarcerated), the doctor can also perform surgery. In addition, during delivery, if it is felt that the degree of hemorrhoids is severe enough, then a cesarean delivery may also be considered.


Therefore, to prevent hemorrhoids from getting worse, you should drink more and eat high-fiber foods. Avoid the habit of holding back a bowel movement because it can further harden the stool and make hemorrhoids inflamed.


Hope it helps ya..
