I developed internal haemorrhoids a few weeks after birth. I still have them, is this normal?

I had my baby 7 months ago. Induced labour 11 days over due. Vaginal birth with forceps and episitomy. I developed internal haemorrhoids a few weeks later. I still have them is this normal? Will they ever go away? I am planning on trying to get pregnant again in 5 months. Anty help would be greatly apprieciated.

Answer: Hi, You probably need to visit your GP for a check up. They can prescribe stronger medicine that should help relieve the swelling. Best wishes, Alex
