Do Hemorrhoids Go Away On Their Own

Do Hemorrhoids Go Away On Their Own - Do hemorrhoids go away on their own? Most people get hemorrhoids at least once at some point in their lives.  Many people are not sure whether hemorrhoids have to be treated or hemorrhoids go away on their own.  The answer depends on a case by case scenario.

Hemorrhoids is actually a natural reaction the body has to things like hard bowel movements or other pressures in the rectum.  This pressure can be caused by constipation or strain to have a bowel movement.  If this are the causes, then once constipation goes away so will your hemorrhoid problems.

It’s estimated that three-quarters of the population, or 3 out of every 4 people will experience hemorrhoids in their lifetime.  The main reason for the condition is constipation and it can also be due to insufficient amounts of water in the body that results in hardened stools.

Whether you should or should not treat the hemorrhoid will depend on the size and severity of the hemorrhoid.  Usually for small hemorrhoids, changing your diet to a healthy one that includes fiber and fluids with proper exercise will do the trick.  Others may be very painful and will need the help of a physician.

Prepartion-H is a remedy that’s widely used by hemorrhoid sufferers.  It can be applied directly to the anus as an ointment, or it can be used as a towelette or suppository.  You have the option of  choosing what method to use.

It’s believed by some that once you get hemorrhoids you will probably get them again at some later point in life.  If you lead a healthy, active lifestyle you shouldn’t have too much to worry about.

Sometimes hemorrhoids just happen because of a natural reaction to what is happening with the body.  Pregnant women are very prone to hemorrhoids because of the increased pressure caused by the baby.  Older people are also more likely to get hemorrhoids because they lead a more sedentary lifestyle than younger people.  So in some cases hemorrhoids don’t really have to be treated because they are just natural reactions of the body.

When a doctor takes a look at them, he or she will decide whether or not to treat the hemorrhoid depending on the severity of the condition.  Some people are puzzled as to why they should not be treated.  But only when hemorrhoids are painful or uncomfortable should they be treated surgically.

Sometimes hemorrhoids will form and then the person will not experience any more symptoms after that.  It all depends on the type of lifestyle that a person leads.

Keep hemorrhoids away by drinking plenty of water and eating fresh fruits and vegetables on a regular basis.  This will help your body with constipation and will also help to soften stools.  If you can manage to keep constipation away, you can also keep hemorrhoids away.
