Is anyone else suffering or is it just me?

I had two that never went away but had become really small and not bothering me from my first birth, and then when I was PG with Michaela I got two more. Despite not having a vaginal birth, I think probably due to straining in the early days with being on iron etc, they have become really quite swollen and sore - they make it difficult to "go", and bleed most times.

I've got some Germoloids to use on them and will see the doctor if it doesn't work. What's anyone else doing about them?

I had them very bad right after Sarah was born. It took several weeks for them to finally go away. I was miserable.

Mine went away... but they seem to be coming back

I have suppositories but I'm nervous to use them!

Yes, I got some. The funny thing is, I got them more AFTER she was born from some constipation issues I was having. :/ I don't do anything, other than try to take hot baths and sit in there for awhile.

I got some small ones after she was born and I left the hospital. But they seemed to have gone away for the most part.

Yea I have 2 I think. It SUCKS. Anyone else feel like they are passing shards of glass sometimes? Not fun. Mine don't always bother me, I mean I know they are there but I feel like I have flare ups.

I don't have the right now but I have in the past. This is what shrunk them for me when they were really inflamed:

Get in the shower. Run the water as hot as you can stand on the afflicted area. Get your self away from the stream of water. Immediately turn the water to very cold. Run the water over the afflicted area. You will lose your breath, but the area will tighten up in response to the very clod water.

I used to run the cold for as long as I could stand to get them as tight as possible. I kept doing that for a while and it helped greatly. Didn't take too many treatments. It doesn't really help with any itching though,

I had the absolute worst ever (!!!) after Caiden's birth. What helped the most were Sitz baths. I didn't soak too long, just enough to get the heat on them. I'd take 3-4 a day, seriously.

I guess you can add me to the list. I'd suspected but wasn't sure. Fantastic.

Yes I definitely get the shards of glass feeling. Mine are not itchy, just sore. I'll try that Maggie, thanks.

I had them really bad right after. They are still there but are bearable. My best advice is to use wet wipes instead of TP and clean really well. I know this is a taboo subject but I read that the itching is from the poo so clean up well. Eat lots of fiber, make it so you don't have to strain at all and go every day. Get some Tuck's pads or whatever is the equivalent over there and stick them back there. Get some witch hazel wipes or just some witch hazel and soak the TP in it. In a pinch soak TP in water. Never use dry TP. Take baths, sitz or normal. Don't spend long amounts of time on the potty, no reading. Don't sit for too long but don't stand for too long either, both in moderation. It'll get better with time.
