So so bad. Mine led to 2 fissures in my first pregnancy and 2 pregnancies later I am still doing battle at times. Get them sorted ASAP. I always instantly go to the gp for some anusol suppositories. They seem to work fastest. But do take as much care as you can. Drink lots and eat lots of fibre.
Thank you for your reply. I'm really struggling. Just so so sore just now. I know it's going to get worse. I went to my gp and she basically told me it will 'run its course' and there isn't much they can give me for it. Not amused. I'll phone on Monday and try get a different doctor. I'm feeling so sorry for myself and my poor OH is bound to be getting fed up of my moaning by now.
