How to treat hemorrhoids after delivery

Hemorrhoids are varicose veins of the rectum. It arises from the stagnation of blood in the veins in the region of the anus. At the same time, the veins become enlarged, entangled in a ball, often "fall out" or become inflamed inside, and call them hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids cause a lot of trouble for a sick person. The course of this disease is very unpleasant, so treatment should not be postponed.

In principle, it is clear, why hemorrhoids so often occur during pregnancy and become inflamed after childbirth. The growing uterus presses on the intra-abdominal area, while the outflow of blood from the veins of the rectum is difficult. Pregnant women are more prone to varicose veins, especially lower extremities. Promotes this increasing weight, sedentary lifestyle, improper diet, because of which frequent constipation occurs. Generic attempts become the "culmination" of pressure on inflamed hemorrhoids.

Many doctors claim that postpartum hemorrhoids rarely require serious treatment (especially surgical). With the observance of simple rules, it passes several months after the birth. However, only if the disease occurred during pregnancy and after childbirth, and was not an old sore.
