What causes haemorrhoids during pregnancy?
A lot of medical symptoms comes forward during a pregnancy and haemorrhoids are one of them. Haemorrhoids affect more than 50% of all pregnant women and it tends to come during the third trimester of the pregnancy.
During pregnancy, the uterus supporting the baby presses on the lower part of the colon, causing blood vessels in the anus to swell and forms a lump. Easy said haemorrhoids are enlarged veins in the colon and anus that are painful when touched. If you could see them (but who would) – they would look like grapes hanging out from the anus.
Furthermore, in the third trimester, the body collects extra blood in the basin to feed the baby and prepare for birth. Increased blood flow can lead to weaker vessel walls in the anus and rectum, which again causes haemorrhoids.
Finally, chronic constipation during pregnancy and strained toilet visits are perfect for the creation of painful and swollen haemorrhoids in the rectum and anus.

In spite of the fact is is affecting more than 50% of all women during pregnancy, few who have been informed about haemorrhoids and how they can be avoided and treated.
A recent study undertaken by Palliance (2014) also shows that haemorrhoids are something that women don’t want to talk about. Almost every other woman would not tell their partner that they have haemorrhoids.
Preventing haemorrhoids during pregnancy
Many experts warn women from sitting down for longer periods and some want you to avoid standing up too long. The best is to not stay in one position for too long, since it leads the blood to clog in the veins and cause the haemorrhoids to swell and cause pain. If you can pause from sitting positions and get up and move around, it will help to prevent haemorrhoids.

You should drink the right amount of beverage to make the stool softer. Eating prunes is a good way to keep your stomach happy without using medication.
