Let’s talk about the nitty gritty side of pregnancy and child birth. It’s time to break the stigma of those painful little things called hemorrhoids. It may be an embarrassing topic to talk about, but most women get them during pregnancy or during child birth. Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding. They sound super fun, don’t they? I didn’t experience them with my first pregnancy but boy did I ever with my second. I tried several products like Tucks and Preparation H but nothing relieved the pain and discomfort enough. It was a miserable three months. Yes, they hung around for two freaking months before baby came and finally went away a month after my daughter was born. I was lucky enough (if you can call it lucky) to have a repeat c-section so I wasn’t forced to push the baby out and make my hemorrhoids worse. Hemorrhoids make awesome push presents, literally! I could not imagine dealing with hemorrhoids AND possible tearing! Sorry to the mamas who have endured this, my heart sincerely goes out to you and your nether regions.
I recently discovered a product that could have helped me tremendously and I wanted to share it with anyone who may be going through the joys of hemorrhoids right now! It’s called RectiCare® (awesome name, right?) Complete Hemorrhoid Care System. The system includes RectiCare® Advanced Hemorrhoidal Cream and a supply of 10 “finger cots,” little covers that fit over the finger. They promote hygienic application, since the finger doesn’t come into contact with the product or the area to which it is being applied. The system also includes 8 individually packaged pre-moistened RectiCare® Advanced Hemorrhoidal Wipes which are discreet, and perhaps most important for new moms, portable and perfect for on-the-go relief.
Not all “push presents” are created equal but fortunately for us, there is a portable and convenient solution for the less coveted result of pushing, so mom can return to enjoying the fruits of her labor.
