Brief Answer: NO LINK BETWEEN THE TWO Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. Haemorrhoids and vaginal infections are not related. However, what could be happening is this - haemorrhoids can lead to peri anal itching. If you itch out there and then accidentally touch the vagina, you run the risk of acquiring vaginal infections. As such there is no direct association between the two conditions. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.
