I had a vaginal birth 10months ago. All went well. Afterwards, and still now, I have a bulging in the anus after I have done a poo and slightly when I bend down in the squat position. No bleeding and no pain but just would like it to go. Did anyone else have this? Please tell me it goes!!

My DS2 is now 14 months and its no better really ! I keep hoping it goes and putting off the doctors but no joy . No sure at what point I will have to. Taking laxatives every few days helps me . Its horrible sad

Oh goodness :-( Do you feel something there all the time or just when you poo? Or squat down?
I didn't have any problems during pregnancy but am a bit worried that things might get worse during second pregnancy.

With me it was the second I think that's more common ! Have a few friends who sailed through first and whose bottom fights back on second smile

Have you tried anything for them?

Oh goodness bigandbouncy ! Not looking forward to it getting worse.

No hissingcat I've not tried anything as they only 'come out' on the loo and I was expecting them to have gone by now. But as they haven't perhaps I should. Have you any experience of treatment?

new there are over the counter treatments which can help shrink them. If it's internal piles you're probably better using a suppository. Anusol are very good.
Do they come and go or are they there all the time?
Do you smoke?

Also are you sure it's piles and not a prolapse?

Hi hissing yes they come and go and are only there where I go to the loo. No I don't smoke. It's from the rectum so piles.

Sorry I meant out of the anus (what a lovely subject!)
