I had them bad after giving birth to dd. The hospital gave me a condom of water which had been frozen which helped a bit, like an ice pack!! But I found when i got home I sat in a cool bath with lavender oil in. It worked for me!!
hi hayleylou...thanx....do u no or any1 else no if its ok to wrap a piece of ice in a cloth n place it directly on the pile!!! i read somewhere that putting a direct ice pack on the pile is not good so not sure wat 2 do x
grated potato on the affected area - honestly it does soothe the pain. otherwise, see your gp about a pile ointment with steroids (not sure if you can have this while pg, but gp will know). steroid cream heaps more effective than anusol. piles after dd's birth were agony.
hi all thanx 4 ur imput...on my grocery stall...hahahahahaha well i have 2 make light of it dont i....or cry...went 2 c consultant 2day...and informed her of the stall which only sells grapes )) nothing can b done till ds is born ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...so its 3 weeks of pain....feel as if my poor bum doesnt belong 2 me...anusol is not doing much!! so anymore ideas 4 me xxxxxxxxxx
i have the 'Active Birth' book by Janet Balatsas (i think) which has heaps of good pregnancy yoga for all sorts of pg probs... anyway, legs up the wal and doing pelvic floor exercises helps to pull in the piles. (had them with my second).
