Thanks for writing to us.
Constipation is the main problem associated with hemorrhoids. Since there is intermittent bleeding while you pass stools, proper treatment is required to avoid related complications like anaemia.
You need to take plenty of fluids, green leafy vegetables and magnesium supplements to avoid constipation at all costs.
Using over the counter purgatives occasionally will be helpful.
You do need a medical attention. Do not feel embarassed to go to your surgeon for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
