Is your stool really hard and can't get passed the hemorrhoids ? You may need to try using citrucel or metamucil 2-3 times a day to help soften the stool. Just make sure you drink at least 1 8oz. glass of water after you take it or it will constipate you even more if you're already.
I don't have hemorrhoids but I do get constipated after not going for more than 36 hours and I find it very hard to pass the stool without straining really hard and trying to force it exit my rectum. I can't even imagine how painful it must be with hemorrhoids.
i found that eating a bowl of oatmeal with flax seed in it for breakfast every morning helps as well as eating stewed apricots or prunes every day to keep my BM's regular and soft and easy to pass.
