Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. Hemorrhoids may result from straining during a bowel movement or from the increased pressure on these veins during pregnancy.
A sometimes embarrassing topic of discussion, hemorrhoids are a common ailment. By age 50, about half of adults have had to deal with the itching, discomfort and bleeding that can signal the presence of hemorrhoids.
Fortunately, many effective options are available to treat hemorrhoids. Most people can get relief from hemorrhoid symptoms using all-natural treatments and lifestyle changes.
- Painless bleeding during bowel movements‚ you might notice small amounts of bright red blood on your toilet tissue or in the toilet bowl.
- Itching or irritation in your anal region
- Pain or discomfort
- Hemorrhoids protruding from your anus
- Swelling around your anus
- A sensitive or painful lump near your anus
- Leakage of feces
Hemorrhoids can occur when the veins around your anus are stretched under pressure and may bulge or swell. Swollen veins‚ hemorrhoids ‚ can develop from an increase in pressure in the lower rectum.
Factors that might cause increased pressure
- Straining during bowel movements
- Sitting for long periods of time on the toilet
- Chronic diarrhea or constipation
Hemorrhoids are more likely as you get older because the tissues that support the veins in your rectum and anus can weaken and stretch with aging. The best way to prevent hemorrhoids is to keep your stools soft, so they pass easily.
How to prevent hemorrhoids and reduce symptoms of hemorrhoids
- Eat high-fiber foods. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Doing so softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. Add fiber to your diet slowly to avoid problems with gas.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Drink six to eight glasses of water and other liquids (not alcohol) each day to help keep stools soft.
- Consider fiber supplements. Most people don't get enough of the recommended amount of fiber ‚Äö√Ñ√Æ 20 to 35 grams a day ‚Äö√Ñ√Æ in their diet. Studies have shown that over-the-counter fiber supplements, such as Lean N Clean®, improve overall symptoms and bleeding from hemorrhoids. These products help keep stools soft and regular. If you use fiber supplements, be sure to drink at least eight glasses of water or other fluids every day. Otherwise, the supplements can cause constipation or make constipation worse.
- Don't strain. Straining and holding your breath when trying to pass a stool creates greater pressure in the veins in the lower rectum.
- Go as soon as you feel the urge. If you wait to pass a bowel movement and the urge goes away, your stool could become dry and be harder to pass.
- Exercise. Stay active to reduce pressure on veins, which can occur with long periods of standing or sitting, and to help prevent constipation. Exercise can also help you lose excess weight that may be contributing to your hemorrhoids.
Avoid long periods of standing or sitting. Sitting too long, particularly on the toilet, can increase the pressure on the veins in the anus.
