I got an internal hemorrhoid about 9 days ago, but there hasn't been any bleeding for a week. is it safe to consume alcohol at this point?

No: There is no contraindication to drinking alcohol with an internal hemorrhoid but there is a problem to be consuming alcohol at age 17. I would wait until you are of age or if you happen to be addicted to alcohol at this early age seek medical help /
