    Have you experienced hemoroids before? Essentially they are engorged vericose veins and if left untreated they will not only be inside, but they'll pop out.

    - Fiber (ofcourse), lots and lots of raisin bran, both the bran and the raisins help. Avoid refined carbs like white bread.
    - Eat lots of fruit, especially prunes, grapes, and figs.
    - Avoid bananas, they constipate.
    - Over the counter creams etc are ok for outer temporary relief, but supposatories work best.
    - Tucks are your friend, very soothing and cooling.
    - prescription supposatories, ask your doctor they work a miracle.
    - avoid spicy foods, these irritate the bowel.
    - sit in warm baths, this really softens the hemaroid.
    - try not to sleep on your back, it interferes with good circulation.
    - don't stand for long periods of time, it lets blood pool in your lower extremeties.
    - exercise regularly, simple daily walks are sufficient to keep your intestines working well.
    - drink lots of water.

    I have to constantly be aware of these practices. I suffered with hemaroids a lot when I was younger, constantly! Now I'm doing such a good job at all the above that I haven't had an occurence yet and I'm 7 months preggo!

    Thank you so much for the tips... I have experienced it before but only once and it went away in a week... it was right after a bowel and being constipated.. I've tried using hem.rrhoid cream and pushing them in thinking I'd put them back where they came from... only made them hurt more =(

    I feel with you. I've been having haemorroids on and off for the longest time ever. And now that I'm preggy, I have bleeding too when I'm constipated. Really sucky. Going to a specialist on Thurs to get some treatment, because I don't think I can take the pain and discomfort.
