I had hemorrhoids with my first pregnancy & have them agaain ofcourse now with my second. My first pregnancy I got them around week 28 & they lasted for 2 weeks. This pregnancy they popped up at week 6 and I'm just feeling relief at week 7. I did hot baths & showers 3 times a day to soothe the pain, laying on my side and icing them to reduce swelling. Creams or wipes didn't work for me. Hope this helps.
no exact figures of the incidence and prevalence rate of haemorrhoidal disease
I had monster Hemorrhoids in both of my pregnancies. Like golf ball size. I didn't get rid of them in either pregnancy until about two or three weeks after giving birth. Doc says that's common. good luck
