I've been having some pain on and off through out my second pregnancy with hemorrhoids...the pain and discomfort doesn't seem to want to let up...regardless of what I use. I have tried P.H. wipes and creams..and a new one that my midwife suggested 100% aloe vera...and sitz baths...they just won't go away...any suggestions or helpful remedies that have helped you along the last few months of pregnancies?

I have a lot of pain with mine too now that I'm in my 2nd pregnancy...my midwife actually suggested this to me :D you crush ice to a "slushie" consistancy and then add Milk Of Magnesia with it to make a sort of paste?? then you put it on a sanitary napkin and apply to the sore area. I was using it atleast 2 or 3 times a day for about half an hour and it worked WONDERS! They have almost completely disappeared :D good luck!

i thought i'd posted on this, but it doesn't show. Witch hazel is what I used. I was told it's the main ingredient in those tucks pads. I agree with natasha on making sure you have softer stools. drink tons of water, juice, and eat lots of fresh foods.

I have used nothing for mine, i just avoid getting constipated as best i can and i don't have any trouble with them. Drink heaps of water and eat loads of fiber!
