I am 35 weeks and have just discovered I have a couple of hemorrhoids, what can I buy over the counter and how long until it starts to work??

I got one after having dd 4.5 years ago and they gave me cream in the hospital but after rummaging through my cupbiards it is out of date and not suitable to use during pregnancy.

Another glamourous side affect!

Hi apple99, pregnancy is so glamorous wink

I thinks its all a bit horses for courses really:I find germaloids cream to be the best thing for me, it gives relief almost instantly. But my sister swears by Anusol cream (I didn't feel like it did anythuing when i used it).

Hope you get some relief soon!!!
