Bleeding hemorrhoids

I have hemmorrhoids and sometimes I bleed when I have a BM.  This time I wiped but not blood but later that day say blood on my underwear, could that be a hemmorhoid bleed.

Hi!

Yes, hemorrhoids can bleed after passing stool too. There are hemorrhoidal creams available in the market which you can apply. Sit in a tub of warm water for 10 mins at least twice a day. Increase fiber in your diet. Eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, oats, porridge etc. Good sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. In addition you can try bulk stool softener such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel). Remember too much of fiber and not proportionate increase in fluid can also cause constipation. Consult your doctor regarding this.
Take care!
