Pregnant, strained bowel movements, bleeding, pain in tail bone. Chances of internal haemorrhoids?

I am 20 years old, first time pregnant, and I just went to the bathroom and have been having strained bowel movements and am not able to go when I feel the need, but have to wait all day so I don t end up hurting if I push too hard, I just noticed a little bit of blood on the toilet paper. My tailbone is hurting too. A couple of weeks ago I was cleaning for about 4 hours straight, and ever since my pubic bone has been hurting too, is it possible I gave myself internal hemorrhoids?

Thanks for writing to us.
During pregnancy, the chances of getting internal hemorrhoids is higher. You need to avoid pushing hard and use an ointment like Preparation H locally. You also need to take plenty of fluids and a fibre rich diet.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
