Pregnant women are often the worse sufferers of hemorrhoids and are often in desperate need of hemorrhoid remedies. The reasons for hemorrhoids during pregnancy are that the pressure of the baby’s weight on the abdomen puts added pressure on the veins.
Constipation is also a common complaint of pregnant women and hemorrhoids are usually the results of constipation. Hormone changes during pregnancy also cause hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoid remedies when you are pregnant
There are many easy hemorrhoid remedies that a pregnant woman can do at home. One extremely effective relief method according to doctors is to lie on your left side for about 20 minutes every 4 to 6 hours. Ice packs and soaking in warm water are equally effective in relieving hemorrhoid discomfort during pregnancy. Avoiding sitting and standing for a long time gives considerable relief from hemorrhoid discomfort. Sitting on a doughnut-shaped cushion is also a discomfort reliever. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and going to the bathroom as soon as you feel the urge is the best method of relieving hemorrhoid discomfort.
What happens after the baby?
Hemorrhoids are removed by surgical clipping after delivery by the doctor. In some cases, they remain because of the pressure on the abdomen during delivery. The best hemorrhoid remedies after the baby are following a good diet and avoiding any actions that may revive hemorrhoids like lifting weights, sitting and standing for a long time. Consulting a physician about any medication you may require will be helpful in relieving hemorrhoids or keeping the revival of hemorrhoids at bay.
Pregnant women are more likely to suffer hemorrhoids because of the pressure on the veins of the abdomen. Using simple hemorrhoid remedies at home can relieve the discomfort to a large extent.
There are many options for treating hemorrhoids. They range from well-known over-the-counter remedies to natural home remedies, to surgery. What kind of remedy you choose is greatly determined by the severity of your hemorrhoids and how often they recur. In this article, I will outline three treatments to use for hemorrhoids that will help relieve your pain and discomfort.
#1. The magic of witch hazel.
Witch hazel is a natural astringent. This means that it will soothe your painful and embarrassing hemorrhoids. It causes your hemorrhoids to shrink and contract. You need to soak a cotton ball in witch hazel and put it in the refrigerator (if it’s cold and feels even better), and then apply it to the hemorrhoids. For obvious reasons, this works the best on external hemorrhoids. Witch hazel can give you relief.
#2. Aloe Vera and its healing properties.
Aloe Vera has been used for thousands of years to promote healing of the skin and soothes the pain. You can buy Aloe Vera extract at the store, most pharmacies carry it. You can even cut the lead Aloe Vera plant and squeeze it to obtain Aloe Vera extract. Apply the Aloe Vera directly to hemorrhoid.

There are also many herbal formulas available on the market. The best ones contain a combination of pure botanical ingredients that are known for reducing swelling and easing the pain.
