The Treatment of Piles During Pregnancy

pregnencyPiles are inflamed haemorrhoids filled with blood vessels, muscle tissues and in some case pus. They are known to occur in both genders at any age. They are however most likely to take place in females during or after pregnancy, birth, miscarriage or abortion. Haemorrhoids are painful swellings. In some cases they will hang out of the anal region giving them the name piles.

There are common symptoms of piles during pregnancy and there are a few reasons why you could suffer from piles during pregnancy.

Your diet needs to be laced with lots of fibre. Diets devoid of fibre will cause constipation and problems with bowel movements. The veins also stretch because of the increase in the size of the womb. This increases the pressure causing imbalance and pile up. High blood pressure will also cause the veins around the anal region to swell and cause piles.

Anusol is considered as one of the best options to be comfortable if you suffer from piles during pregnancy. It is considered a safe option and was designed with pregnant mothers in mind. Pregnancy and piles mostly go hand in hand. Anusol can be used in addition to employing physical methods to be comfortable.

The ointment version however will usually need dressing after application. The cream is said to be effective but not as hygienic as the next method we will highlight.

Suppositories are forms of Anusol that are used during pregnancy by pushing the tablets that are porous up the anus. The method is more hygienic and effective than other remedies. This is probably because of the direct contact and absorption into the piles.
