Hemorrhoids are divided into internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids and mixed hemorrhoids in medicine. Hemorrhoids is a chronic disease in which one or more soft venous masses are formed due to varicose venous plexus at the bottom of anus and rectum and anal mucosa. The prevalence of hemorrhoids in pregnant mothers is about 70%.
During pregnancy, due to the increase of blood flow and the pressure of the enlarged uterus on the pelvis, it is easy to cause varicose veins around the rectal wall or anus, which will swell into the size of peas or grapes, bulge outward, bleed, itch and tingle, especially when there is a hard stool.
Varicose veins in the rectum (called internal hemorrhoids) may bleed and usually do not hurt. In addition to the rectal discomfort you usually feel, there is another manifestation of internal hemorrhoids, that is, there is blood on the toilet paper you wiped. Although rectal bleeding doesn't matter because of hemorrhoids, it will stimulate hemorrhoids, so you should go to the hospital and let the doctor diagnose through examination.
Pregnant mothers suffering from hemorrhoids are generally treated conservatively. General external hemorrhoids do not need any special treatment. Internal hemorrhoids bleeding or prolapse, swelling and pain, you need to go to the hospital specialist for diagnosis and treatment in time. Although hemorrhoids may occur at any time, it usually occurs in the middle and late stages of pregnancy, and it will be more serious in the late stages. Due to excessive force during delivery, hemorrhoids may be the most serious after delivery, but postpartum hemorrhoids will generally shrink or shrink within 4 months with the reduction of abdominal pressure and the removal of venous reflux obstacles.More recommended
