Try using stool softener. I was on miralax (and then doubled the dose) for the first week postpartum which helped with not pushing so much and letting it just kind of flow.
The hospital may have given you the hydrocortisone 2.5%. That helps with healing the hemorrhoids.
@Shynel ok thanks for the advice!
@Ashantay my ex had a hemorrhoid from pushing too hard I called him hemmy the hemorrhoid Lmaoo but I told him to also take a shower instead of wiping
@Ashantay also don’t wipe hard if I were you I would just hop in the shower after going and wash with lukewarm water
@Ashantay they have cream and wipes at Walmart or Safeway or a cvs I would try that and use MiraLAX So you don’t push while going to the bathroom.
@Ashantay literally. Wish it on no one 😭
@Alyssa there horrible I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone
@Shynel what cream ?
Tucks and just taking it day by day 😭😭 I had them sooo bad with my first and am sooo dreading it this time around! I feel your pain!
Have you tried the cream?
Prep H with lidocaine has been a lifesaver for me!! I’ve had pretty bad thrombosed hemorrhoids since I was about 10 weeks
