In brief: They can.

Yes, especially if what you mean by "small" bowel movements is hard , dry stools.
Increase water intake to at least 64 oz/day, eat fruits and veggies, and add a daily fiber supplement (psyllium is recommended). A more deformable stool will scrape the hemorrhoids less, and decrease the bleeding. If not- see your doctor.
