Sitting on the toilet too long, having anal sex, being obese, having chronic constipation or diarrhea, and having a low fiber diet or even being pregnant can cause hemorrhoids.

No: No they usually don't unless you have difficulty cleaning and there is residual stool that remains on the external hemorrhoid after each bm.
