Hi!
If it was a normal vaginal delivery, then this can precipitate hemorrhoid or fissure formation. Hemorrhoids can get injured or infected and cause pain. Fissures are tears in anal lining and are painful. This will not go away on its own. For both fissures and hemorrhoids you need to soak in a tub filled with a few inches of warm water (sitz bath) twice a day for 15 minutes each. There are hemorrhoidal creams and local anesthetics available in the market which you can apply. 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. Most doctors can diagnose hemorrhoids by clinical examination of the anal opening or by proctoscopy (inserting a proctoscope, an instrument to visualize the anal mucosa better). If all these measures fail, you will need surgery—either conventional or laser. You should ideally consult a colo-rectal surgeon for this. Take care!
