Red face Hemorrhoid Help, Please

Well, one of the wonderful effects of pregnancy has reared its ugly face. I have hemorrhoids for the first time and it's killing me. I can't sit at all. I'm in constant pain. Conventional over the counter ointments are not helping very much. Do any of you recommend anything to help relieve the pain and/or help with shrinkage? I hope I'm not the only one out there with this problem. Also, are the over-the-counter ointments ok to use? Thanks

Re: Hemorrhoid Help, Please

I think that I have hemorrhoids too. I'm not in the amount of pain you are though, I just occasionally notice specks of blood when I wipe back there. It says in my pregnancy book that you can use witch hazel pads, unless you have already tried that? I have also heard that you should try sitting on a pillow and never laying on your back, since the added pressure can make it worse. The good news is that this is supposed to subside after Baby comes

Sounds simple, but call your doc and ask for some help! I haven't had any big problems with those yet, but you have my sypathies!
