I have internal hemorrhoids. I'm a male. Will regular vaginal intercouse affect them at all?

2 doctors agree

In brief: No

Straining to have bowel movements, lifting, or chronic deep coughing can make the hemorrhoids worse but vaginal intercourse with a woman should have no effect on a man's hemorrhoids.
