Hemmhoroids from constipation

I am worried I have something more wrong with me than hemmhoroids but I'm not sure. Sometimes when I wipe, there is blood. But that's happened only a few times and when it has, it was after a hard stool. Is it possible that I have recurring hemmhroids if I'm constipated a lot? It seems like I am frequently and I remember struggling to go when I was younger a few times too. I am 19 and a female. My symptoms are: bleeding after hard stools, pain after going, sometimes itchy down there, sometimes have a bad smel coming from there. Like almost fishy. This has been going on and off for about a year. Sometimes my stool is normal. Other times its broken up. Or thin. Is this just hemmhroids you think?

What can I do to stop the constipation? I try drinking more water sometimes but I hate how often I have to pee. Especially when I have class.

Hi and welcome. Im not a doctor but have some experience. Definitly have a doctor check this out but you have all the classic symtoms of hemmroids. The itching is the broken tissue where the blood is coming out. Its good you have the bleeding as this shows the bubble popped to releive the pressure. They make some great creams for this. Prep H cream (not ointment) is really good and the doctor will most likely prescribe  a 2.5% cortizone cream. Doctors now dont suggest surgery but change of diet. Constipation is diet. Eat more salads. Google high fiber recepies.
Have a great day.
