I think it was the constant baths and the bed rest that really did it. After four days of lying mostly on my side (with getting up lots to take care of LO, although my mom and husband were helping A LOT) it got dramatically better. Preparation H (a cream you can buy here in the US) helped lots, as well, because it's numbing.


Milk of magnesia is DISGUSTING. I had to take it twice, and it was awful. Going in sucks, coming out sucks.

Good luck. I promise they do eventually go away.

Been trying tea tree oil neat and think its helping. Also trying a myriad of other natural remedies as I dont want to be using steriod creams for months and am a believer in natures power to heal though these darn piles have made me wonder.

I found this link very informative

http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/hemorrhoids.html

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE TRYING ANYTHING. Hope it helps fellow sufferers. I will update on my progress with what I have tried and if its worked in due course

1. Witch hazel gel. Make sure bottom is clean and dry, and apply this gel straight from fridge. It can sting and itch a little first, but gives hours of relief.

2. This one is a personal life-saver but it isnt for the faint hearted so do your research before you try it. Teatree oil. Straight from the bottle, onto a clean finger and directly onto the piles. It stings like hell for a few mins but the relief afterwards was worth it for me. I also put a few drops into a bath along with lavender oil and bathed 3 or 4 times a day this way.

Good luck ladies, hope they clear up soon for you. xx

am back again piles still hanging around. made appt to see doc in a months time in case no progress. tea tree helps a little but have been trying alo vera gel last few days and think its helping - dont know anymore

whoever had shocking piles after birth - how long did it take them to shrink?

Also anyone have them operated on? any success? want to avoid this but if has to be done so be it?

never mind birth buddies i need a pile buddy

I am currently suffering really badly too! I had a c section so it wasn't caused by pushing but oh my gosh, I have been in tears with the pain! It seems I have an internal pile that has thrombosed and is prolapsed so whenever I go to the toilet it comes out and I have to put it back in, sorry tmi!

I have seen the emergency nurse practioner who just shook her head, told me I was a 'poor girl' (am 28 btw!) and gave me suppositories, painkillers, lactulose and advised an ice pack at least 4 times a day. Then told me that at my 6 week check o need to speak to the doctor about banding to have them removed as nothing else will sort the problem out.

I have a few TMI prolapsed piles but surgeons and doc said they will shrink with time but I dunno if they suggesting banding for you with less piles! Will see what doc says. Hoping to avoid ops if need be. just sick of them cos although not constipated they are there and i want them gone. let me know what your check up reveals if thats ok

No problem, she did say the banding would be done under local rather than general anaesthetic and I think it's because they keep getting thrombosed and I have to push them back in after going to the toilet rather than them retracting.

mine too swollen at the moment so cant retract, have to wait till swelling goes down- if it does. mine not thrombosed so not painful but fed up of having such strict diet - healthy anyway but this is something else as want them gone. will see what doc says in a month. local anaesthetic not too bad then - hope its a quick recovery period

Hi hope u don't mind me joining. I had my baby boy on Monday evening and I have a strong history of severe piles. I had external thrombosed huge piles during my pregnancy and after the birth of my previous baby. Currently I don't have any piles BUT my history is that they will start approx a wk after the birth. I suppose I am here introducing myself as I feel I will be needing ur support shortly and tbh I am scared. I hope u ladies are beginning to feel better xx

They are so painful when thrombosed aren't they?? Worse than anything I have ever felt, including both my sections! Fingers crossed your stay away, it's a nightmare.
