In brief: Bathroom habits

You will also want to avoid sitting on the toilet for too long and not straining to have a bowel movement.
Increasing the amount of fruits, vegetables, and fiber in your diet can reduce your risks for getting or having worsening hemorrhoids.

In brief: See your doctor

If you think you have hemorrhoids, you should see your doctor to have them checked.
She might then give you a prescription medication or recommend an over the counter treatment depending on how problematic they are.
