How long after a hemorrhoid rubber band ligation should I wait to have safe, protected, lubricated anal sex?

If I am interested in returning to having safe lubricated anal sex is the thd hemorrhoid procedure better for me or band ligation?
Either one: I don't think there is a particular advantage between the two. There may be some sutures involved initially with thd, but these dissolve within 3-4 weeks. The hemorrhoid bands fall off after 5-10 days. With both procedures, it would be advisable to wait at least 1 month to allow the inflammation from the procedure to resolve.See 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to have anal sex with non-painful internal hemorrhoids? It was caused by not using lube before, but I always use lube now and am w/o pain.
Not Recommended: If you have internal hemorrhoids, I would recommend against anal intercourse as this can exacerbate the issue whether lubricated or not. If they are in fact internal hemorrhoids, you can consult a surgeon for banding to improve or resolve the issue. Meanwhile, to reduce flares, also avoid straining and keep stools soft.See 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to have anal sex with internal hemorrhoids? There is only slight bleeding during bowel movements so is it safe or no?
Not recommended: You should be symptom free (no pain or bleeding) ideally before anal sex. If you have internal hemorrhoids, I would recommend against anal intercourse as this can exacerbate the issue. If they are in fact internal hemorrhoids, you can consult a surgeon for banding to resolve the issue. Meanwhile, to reduce flares, also avoid straining and keep stools soft.
No: Sex can irritate existing hemorrhoids, but not cause hemorrhoids. Arousal causes increased blood flow in the genital/anal area. This increased blood flow in the anal area can cause hemorrhoids to flare up. Anal sex can definitely cause irritation of the anal area if there is not enough lubrication. Avoid anal sex when experiencing flare ups.See 2 more doctor answers
