Hello

Thanks for the query

According to various studies the best option for you while you are pregnant is conservative management with stool softeners and sitz bath however if the pain is unbearable then the next safest option is to undergo sclerotherpy. Please approach a gastroenterologist for this. Scelrotherapy is a procedure where they inject a small amount of sclerosing agent into the hemorrhoid, it can be done as a day care procedure. Please consult your obstetrician before undergoing this procedure

I hope I was of help
