What Causes Hemorrhoids

What Causes Hemorrhoids

Diets, rich in processed food with less of fresh fruits and vegetables is a

major cause for hemorrhoids. Consumption of lots of refined flour,

animal proteins, fiber-depleted carbohydrates, and sugar reduces roughage

and therefore your stools become hard and difficult to pass. This leads to


Strained Bowel Movement

Strained Bowel Movement

Forced bowel movement either trying too hard or for too long can cause

hemorrhoids. Such strained bowel movement could be due to

constipation, diarrhea, or poor bathroom habits. Squatting toilets makes it

easier for smooth bowel movements.

Postponing Bowel Movement

Postponing Bowel Movement

You could occasionally postpone a bowel movement if there are no proper

facilities in the vicinity. This does not cause any great problem. However,

if you are regularly in the habit of postponing bowel movements,

eventually, fecal matter within the intestines gets dried up and

consequently harder. This then strains while passing and therefore leads to

hemorrhoids. Further, fecal matter within colon pressurizes muscles and

veins in the anal region. This causes swelling of veins around the anus and rectum.



Some people inherit weak vein walls. This could lead to hemorrhoids, although this alone may not

be the deciding factor. Weak vein walls combined with long hours of standing or sitting or poor

bathroom habits can lead to hemorrhoids.



During pregnancy, the extra weight of the uterus walls weighs down on the rectal veins. Further, a

long and painful labor causes increased pressure on the anal region. This could lead to constipation

in women without any previous complaints. However, if you already have hemorrhoids, pregnancy

can worsen your problem. This problem worsens in the final trimester.

Constipation and Diarrhea

Constipation and Diarrhea

Both can cause hemorrhoids. Constipation is difficulty in passing stools due to hardening causing

excessive straining. Diarrhea causes excessive passing of watery stools due to any adverse reaction.

This damages rectal veins and leads to hemorrhoids.



Rectal cancer can lead to hemorrhoids. Rectal cancer prompts or causes an urge to defecate often,

although you do not actually defecate. This unnecessary and frequent strain causes excessive

pressure on your veins and leads to hemorrhoids.


Other diseases like heart ailments, liver diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, and intestinal tumors

can indirectly cause hemorrhoids.

Lack of Exercise

Lack of Exercise

A sedentary lifestyle with almost very little movement of muscles causes your muscles to lose their

elasticity. This makes bowel movements difficult. This is a common problem in the elderly and sick

people. Similarly, some jobs require you to sit or stand for very prolonged periods. This also causes




Being overweight causes several problems, hemorrhoids being one of them. Excess weight in the

pelvic and abdomen region increases pressure on the pelvic veins. This leads to hemorrhoids.

Other Possible Causes of Hemorrhoids

Other Possible Causes of Hemorrhoids

Other factors which may be linked to the occurrence of hemorrhoids with some patients may

include vitamin deficiency, frequent use of laxatives, hypertension and poor intake of fluids and


People who regularly suffer from constipation and diarrhea can get hemorrhoids. Similarly, chronic

sufferers of liver diseases and intestinal diseases can get hemorrhoids.

People having jobs that entail long hours of sitting or standing could develop hemorrhoids. People

eating more spicy foods or those drinking less water could suffer from constipation and resultant

hemorrhoidal symptoms.

What is the Treatment for Hemorrhoids?

What is the Treatment for Hemorrhoids?

Thankfully and in most instances, Hemorrhoids can be treated successfully without any

professional medical intervention.

Typical of the products available over the counter is Doctor Butler's Hemorrhoid & Fissure


Undoubtedly popular it's also available online and you would have to read some of the hundreds of

buyer reviews for this ointment to gauge whether or not it might work for you.

However, having said that, it's always best to consult a doctor if you’re unsure or the condition lasts

for more than a couple of weeks.

From all pharmacies, you will also be able to buy some creams over the counter called

Corticosteroids which contain a local anaesthetic and will soothe the pain and discomfort. They are

not recommended for long term use though.

There are three other treatments which all require you to visit a medical practitioner.

The first is where a chemical is injected into the hemorrhoid which causes them to shrivel up.

The second way, is called Banding. Where a rubber band is placed around the base of the

hemorrhoid. The Hemorrhoid then shrinks and eventually falls off.


The final option is surgery called hemorrhoidectomy which is only conducted very rarely as less

traumatic methods named above are used. This option would normally be used on internal

hemorrhoids which are very large.

I hope you found this article helpful in so far as getting a better understanding of the causes, effects

and recommended treatments for your hemorrhoids.

Do share it with your wife or husband and include them in your discussions with your doctor

wherever possible, so that they know how best to assist you through this time and also the best

methods for them to avoid getting hemorrhoids themselves.

Hemorrhoids are not a good subject for jokes but they are also not something which anyone should

be embarrassed about having; in time, almost every one will experience this most unpleasant
