Ya know, ive never ever had them in my life until after giving birth to DS2. Since giving birth ive had fissures and piles ongoingly (never had hemmroids before this either). Ive read that it can be due to the prolapse (i have severe rectal, bladder, and uterine prolapse). Ive been dealing with these uncomfortable things for the last 14 months...ugh.

big hope they heal soon.
They say tucks pads can help. I dont really think it helped mine heal but it did make the pain go away after doing a #2.

Have you been to the Dr's? I had one after DD1, it took about a year to clear up, I was on different medications to sort it out. Seriously if what your on isn't working go back again and again! Drink pleanty of water to keep soft and try eat fibre and things and as much as it hurts try not to hold it in - I totally know how easier it is to say then do though!

The best stuff I got from the Dr's was movicol, made a world of difference. I was on lactulose at first and it just did nothing for me. Plus I had suppositories to help with the swelling after you have passed a movement.

If you haven't - please get checked out and if you have and it still hurts - go back!

Yep please go to the docs, they gave me anusol cream which helped a little. I also bought the suppostries and ate loads of fibre to make it easier to go to the loo.
The pain was worse than labour and I'd dread going to the loo. It took a few weeks to heal but even after it heals, still keep up with the high fibre diet to prevent it happening again.
Good luck. X

Mine did at my first appointment, it was very quick and was just to confirm there was a small tear - no prodding or poking or anything.

It was worth it though, it took 12 months for mine to fully heal with medication so I really recommend getting it checked, even if your worried it will be embarresing. Plus you get all the meds free with your maternity exception card

I suffered with Anal Fissures for a long time after my first bubs and finally plucked up the courage to go to the doctors.. they prescribed me fibregel and GTN ointment.. I was happy with the fibregel for a little while but it made me bloated and the GTN made me feel awful! Headaches and flushed all the time.. the only thing that got rid of them was a colonic and eating all bran everyday and the occasional senokot to help.. Def get it seen to as they may suggest something better for you. . It's so painful and you need it sorting before it goes on too long xxx
