I have internal hemorrhoids. I'm a male. Will regular vaginal intercouse affect them at all?

No: Straining to have bowel movements, lifting, or chronic deep coughing can make the hemorrhoids worse but vaginal intercourse with a woman should have no effect on a man's hemorrhoids.

Could I have gotten hemorrhoids from giving birth vaginally?

Could I have gotten hemorrhoids from giving birth vaginally?

Indirectly: Pregnancy itself causes pelvic pressure & can cause women to get hemorrhoids. A vaginal delivery itself could aggravate the hemorrhoid veins that are already present, but not likely to have caused them to form in the first place.

Hello docs. I was wondering can vaginal swelling and irritation be from hemorrhoids?

Hello docs. I was wondering can vaginal swelling and irritation be from hemorrhoids?

Very Unlikely: Hemorrhoids are usually very local to the anal area. If you have vaginal symptoms as well you should visit someone to evaluate what is going on.

How can I distinguish between pinworm, hemorrhoid or vaginal infection?

How can I distinguish between pinworm, hemorrhoid or vaginal infection?

Your doctor can: It would be very difficult for one to self evaluate and come to a reliable conclusion as to the cause of symptoms as a physical examination and possibly laboratory tests would likely be needed for a definitive diagnosis.

Will external hemorrhoid burst during vaginal intercourse?

Will external hemorrhoid burst during vaginal intercourse?

May be: Hemorrhoids are unlikely to rupture during regular sex, however, there is some "trauma" to the anal area and depending on the state of hemorrhoids, rupture may happen.

My youngest son is 6 months old, I had vaginal delivery and after the delivery; I've had an extra skin on my anus, sometimes it hurts but most of the time it doesn't but I've never had hemorrhoids; so I"m not sure if that is what it is.

Could be...: If you find that area to be painful there is a good chance it is a tiny hemorrhoid. Try sitz baths daily with ice/cool packs. If no better see you family doc for an exam. Enjoy your baby!

Generally safe: Given the specific scenario described, this is likely safe. Listen to your body, however, and stop if you feel discomfort.

I have a large external hemorrhoid that I'm treating, but today have vaginal discharge with blood, feels like I'm urinating cause there is so much. Help?

I have a large external hemorrhoid that I'm treating, but today have vaginal discharge with blood, feels like I'm urinating cause there is so much. Help?

Seek medical help: If you are bleeding that heavily you need to be seen right away! A good rule of thumb-a pad or more per hour for 2-3 hours, go in. You could become severly anemic and need medical attention. Other symptoms of severe anemia are light headedness, dizziness, short of breath, or rapid heart beat. If you have these go in immediately.

Anal bleeding and vaginal bleeding. I have hemorrhoids and ovarian cysts? Should I be worried?

Why worry?: Really! Go see a MD for your symptoms as "worry" never solves any issues. Both of those issues can be treated.

Does rectal hemorrhoids have a foul smell? Does it cause vaginal problems too? Both rectum and vagina are sore and painful. Discharge from vagina?????

Does rectal hemorrhoids have a foul smell? Does it cause vaginal problems too? Both rectum and vagina are sore and painful. Discharge from vagina?????

Not hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids usually do not have a foul smell and it would be very unusual for hemorrhoids to affect the vagina. Your symptoms sound like an abscess and I recommend you have a health care provider examine you.

External & internal hemorrhoids. Back pain. Everything I eat, hurts me. Severe constipation. Pulsation in vaginal area. Tingling in hands & feet.

See a doctor: This sounds as if you really need to be seen by a family practitioner or general internist and fully evaluated. Multiple problems, some of them sounding potentially quite serious. Go soon and good luck.

It seems that I've started my period but I also have a small bleeding hemorrhoid close to my vagina. How do I know which it is?

It seems that I've started my period but I also have a small bleeding hemorrhoid close to my vagina. How do I know which it is?

Vaginal vs rectal bl: A tampon can sort that out easily. You could also reach behind and wipe just your anus to see if blood originates from there. If not squeamish, wash hands and insert a finger into your vagina to see if there is blood.
