I`m 27+3 wks and have hemorrhoids

hi i`m 27+3 wks and have hemorrhoids (i`m assuming)they are extremely painful and protruding these last 2 days i went to the chemist but the cream hasn`t done anything to ease the pain. i`m usually not very regular but have been using metamcil and going once a day i`m scared that i`ve done some major damage. and very embarrassed to go to a doc.

Answer: Hi, This is a very common side effect of pregnancy. More than likely they will disappear after the baby is born. You may need to visit your GP for a check up as they can order stronger creams to treat them more effectively. Best wishes, Alex
