Safe to wear pads during periods while having hemorrhoids? Permanent cure?

Is it safe to wear pads during my period if I have hemorrhoids? I am 26 years old and developed prolapsed internal hemorrhoids from the stress of planning my wedding but I do not have insurance to go see a GI. I have always been very active and eat very healthy and so I was confused and extremely embarrassed when this condition presented its self. I have been able to treat them at home with classic home remedies and change in diet to include even more fiber than I was already consuming; although they have gotten much better I am wondering if they ever completely go away. And if so what can I do to make it happen?

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern this is okay if can use sanitary pad with the history of hemorrhoid, the sanitary pad wont interfere with the hemorrhoid, beside the surgical treatment this can be managed conservatively, and for that drink more water have fibber diet, never ever apply the force at the time of defecation, keep the habit of going to toilet every day, even you do not have refluxes, hope this information helps you have nice day.
