After a woman is pregnant, those who have hemorrhoids are more likely to get worse, and those who do not have hemorrhoids are more likely to get hemorrhoids. The growing uterus during pregnancy puts pressure on the anorectal blood vessels, and the blood is concentrated in the pelvis. Blood stasis and varicose are also prone to occur in the anal area. The symptoms of hemorrhoids in the past are not severe, but it can be aggravated after pregnancy. Coupled with the inconvenience of pregnant women, the amount of activity is relatively reduced, the gastrointestinal function is weakened, the feces stay in the intestinal cavity, and the water in the feces is reabsorbed, causing dry stools and easy to induce hemorrhoids. During childbirth, the force applied to the anus is several times that of normal, which may cause hemorrhoids to prolapse.
In order to prevent the deterioration of hemorrhoids during pregnancy, it is best to treat them appropriately before pregnancy. Severe hemorrhoids, of course, will aggravate during pregnancy and cause pain, such as prolapse, blood in the stool, pain, and difficulty in defecation. Those with surgical indications should be treated with surgery before pregnancy. Life and diet should be regular, keep stool smooth, prevent constipation and diarrhea, and avoid carrying heavy objects. Proper activities should be avoided to avoid standing or sitting for a long time. The anus, rectum, and sigmoid colon are places where feces are stored and excreted. The feces contain many bacteria. The area around the anus is easily contaminated by these bacteria and induces hemorrhoids. Keep the area around the anus clean, wash with warm water every day, and change underwear frequently, which can prevent hemorrhoids and relieve symptoms.
