Piles or Hemorrhoids in pregnancy – Causes and Treatment

Piles or hemorrhoids are varicose veins of the rectum. If you have had a background with itching, pain in the bottom, or even any blood, you probably have piles (hemorrhoids). Piles can be painful. These veins can be hung during or after you empty your bowels. You may feel this as a soft small lump just inside or around the edge of the bottom. Hemorrhoids appear to be hereditary, but are more common during pregnancy.

Occurrence:
Hemorrhoids may occur during the first quarter, due to hormonal changes that occur in your body which typically causes constipation. But if you’re unfortunate enough to suffer from hemorrhoids, they are more likely to begin during quarter two.

Causes:
Hemorrhoids are formed when you strain to pass stool. If you have internal hemorrhoids, bright red blood is observed on toilet paper, feces and the toilet. It is caused by the continuous flow of blood through the vein. An external hemorrhoid can be felt as a hard lump, swelling around the rectum, which has bled and then coagulated. This blood clot is sometimes called a thromboses external hemorrhoid.

– Listen to your body and go to the bathroom whenever there is a feel of bowel movement. Do not strain bowel movements.
– The most effective way to prevent hemorrhoids is to avoid constipation. Eat a high fiber diet consisting of whole grains, raw or cooked leafy green vegetables and fruits. Also, drink lot of water (eight to 10 glasses a day).
– Try to exercise regularly, even a brisk walk is very beneficial.
– If necessary, consult your doctor for a stool softener.
– Doing pelvic floor exercises every day can also help. Tense the muscles around the vagina and anus and hold for 80-10 seconds before releasing and relaxing. Repeat 25 times. These exercises stimulate circulation in the area around the bottom and prevent hemorrhoids. It also strengthens the muscles around the vagina and perineum, which helps during childbirth and during recovery after childbirth.

Treatment:
– Take a warm bath to relieve itching and pain.
– Use ice packs to soothe hemorrhoids.
– Gently but thoroughly clean the affected area after each bowel movement. If you notice bleeding, you can even add a drop of water disinfectant used for cleaning. Water usage will be much gentler on the skin than toilet paper.
– Take the pressure off the veins. Avoid sitting or standing for long, and try sleeping on your side, not your back.
– Ask your doctor to recommend safe anesthetic, topical or medicated suppositories. Consult the before trying any over-the-counter hemorrhoid relief products.
– If the pain becomes unbearable, try to sit from time to time in an inflatable ring – shaped like a large donut. Many mothers find this solution a lifesaver. However, you should use it sparingly because it can reduce circulation in the affected area and prolong the healing process.

Talk to your doctor about the placement of topical anesthetic agent or a process that removes the body’s sensitivity to pain. Anesthetics are generally medically controlled chemicals, but include other forms such as hypnosis, or the body’s own ability to cause numbness and shock.
