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. ...Read more

A few days to weeks: Hemorrhoids can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks to heal, and I'd say once they stop bleeding and cease being painful you can resume anal sex with your partner. If the hemorrhoids become thrombosed (get a blood clot within them) it can take up to 3 months to heal on their own and more intensive treatment may be necessary. ...Read more

I have internal hemorrhoids and im 21. I would like to have anal sex. How can I heal them at home and when can I have anal sex?

Hemorrhoids: You didn't mention if hemorrhoids are bleeding or painful. Symptom relief can be obtained by sitting in a tub of warm water for 15-20 minutes at least once a day. A prescription suppository (anusol hc) or over the counter preparation h cream used after the tub should help to reduce size & discomfort from hemorrhoids. Assure that hemorrhoids not an std or other health problem is not the cause. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
