Piles or hemorrhoids are a swollen area of blood vessels like a pillow. It’s located at the end of the anus and rectum, which helps control the discharge through the anus. Although normal human body parts, those swollen blood vessels are called piles or hemorrhoids only when symptoms appear. Although the symptoms of piles are possible for any human being. The chances of getting piles increase due to the effect of gestational hormones in pregnant mothers. In many cases it comes out of the anus and the chances of complications are greatly increased. Today’s blog I’ve pointed out some symptoms of piles during pregnancy.
Symptoms of piles are noticeable during pregnancy
Bleeding from the anus is usually severe redness, itching, pain, irritation or swelling around the anus, pain in the anus during defecation and excretion of mucus after defecation, one or more piles coming out of the anus that spontaneously return to the anus. In many cases the piles are outside at all times.
Constipation causes and aggravates the symptoms of piles and therefore its treatment is very important if there is constipation. To avoid the symptoms of constipation and piles before or after treatment with medication, the doctor always advises to follow a healthy diet and change the lifestyle that is easily imitated. These tips help to get rid of constipation and piles during pregnancy. These tips I have already mentioned specifically when discussing constipation.
It is not advisable to stand for long periods of time during pregnancy or to sit on the toilet for long periods of time.
Many times the cloth can be soaked in ice water and pressed very lightly on the piles to get relief.
When the piles come out, you have to try to insert them carefully.
Unnecessary pressure or squeezing should be avoided during defecation. After defecation, it should be cleaned with a light touch with wet paper instead of dry paper.
If the piles are swollen or out, dipping the piles in lukewarm water can be a great relief. If the symptoms are more, you can use anti-inflammatory cream or ointment in consultation with the doctor.
No medication should be used without consulting a doctor.
Surgery is avoided during pregnancy unless it is a life-threatening complication, as piles symptoms usually improve after the baby is born.
Those who had piles during pregnancy after childbirth should consult a doctor again.
