  • Meet Danielle: My pain level is usually moderate. My hemorrhoids are external.
  • “After my daughter was born, I knew something was wrong down there but I didn't know what it was. My nurse told me I had hemorrhoids from pregnancy. When I came home, I couldn't sit, lay down or stand without being in extreme pain. I talked to my mom and some of my friends who had babies and they said it was normal and had happened to them, too.”
  • How I Treat My Symptoms

    “I sat a lot while I was nursing, so I bought one of those donut-shaped cushions and tried to stand up and move around as often as possible."

    “My doctor said that new moms can be constipated and that constipation can cause flare-ups, so I'm trying to eat better, drink lots of water and take walks. It all helps. To help relieve the pain, I sit in a warm, shallow bath and afterwards pat it dry. Then I gently pat on Preparation H® Ointment for relief from painful burning and itching.

    My mom uses Preparation H®and I do, too.”

More Information

  • Physical Activity & Hemorrhoids
  • Get up and get moving. Along with a healthy diet, exercise can help ease bowel movements and this, in turn, can help reduce the risk of flare-ups and new hemorrhoids. That's a step in the right direction.

    Is It Safe to Exercise?

    If you have had hemorrhoid flare-ups in the past, you may want to avoid exercises that increase pressure in the anal area because that can trigger a hemorrhoid flare-up. Examples of this type of activity are horseback riding or bicycling (because they place pressure on the rectum) and weightlifting (because it causes exertion, straining and bearing down on the rectal area).

  • Reduce the Risk of Flare-Ups

    Some exercises can help reduce your risk of flare-ups by stimulating bowel function and/or toning the rectal area. Stimulating bowel function limits constipation (a cause of hemorrhoid flare-ups). Exercise that boosts your heart rate increases blood flow to your rectal area. This strengthens supportive tissue (to help prevent flare-ups) and delivers nutrients and oxygen to inflamed areas (to help relieve flare-ups).

    Moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking 20 minutes a day, can stimulate bowel function* as well as enhance blood flow and muscle tone. Other beneficial cardio activities include running, swimming and aerobics.

    Certain exercise, such as yoga, enhance muscle tone and may reduce your symptoms and risk of flare-ups.
