Occasionally, a variety of special medications or creams may be used. ...Read more

Why are pregnant women prone to heartburn, indigestion, constipation and haemorrhoids?

Why are pregnant women prone to heartburn, indigestion, constipation and haemorrhoids?

Fetus/uterus growth: Heartburn and indigestion are caused by the increasing abdominal pressure, due to the enlarging uterus. Hemorrhoids are caused by increased pelvic venous pressure - same cause. Not all pregnant women become constipated, but the fetal and uterine enlargement surely can lead to GI distress. I suggest a good diet and good hydration. Good luck. ...Read more

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid thats failed tx w/ hc suppositories & cream? What's best for pain control?

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid thats failed tx w/  hc suppositories & cream?  What's best for pain control?

Hemrrhoid: Oral Prednisone has not been well documented in the literature in the treatment of hemrrhoids. Keeping on a strict schedule of nsaids for their anti-inflammatory effect, barring no contra-indications in your personal history, would be beneficial to you. I would recomment starting with Ibuprofen (motrin) 600mg 3 times a day for 30 days. The anti-inflammatory effects take a full week before benefit. ...Read more

38 yr. Marriage. One child. Extremely infrequent intercourse. Very painful sex w/blood. Gynecologist states episiotomy to blame. Any options for me?

38 yr. Marriage. One child. Extremely infrequent intercourse. Very painful sex w/blood. Gynecologist states episiotomy to blame. Any options for me?

Assuming it is not: From atrophic vaginitis which means vaginal thinning due to lack of estrogen in the vaginal tissue - that can cause all of your symptoms, and can be treated with low dose vaginal estrogen like Estrace (estradiol) cream, if it is really from episiotomy which is possible but not likely, the episiotomy can be redone with a minor surgery, you should go for a 2nd opinion before u would have that type of surgery. ...Read more
