Postpartum Resources

Hemorrhoids are dilated veins that protrude from the rectum and can be quite uncomfortable. You may experience itching or burning around the anus or have a spot of bright, red blood on your toilet paper when wiping.

Avoid constipation and straining with bowel movements to help prevent hemorrhoids. If you do experience hemorrhoids, sitz baths can relieve symptoms, and TUCKS pads and Anusol or Preparation H may decrease itching/burning.
