Haemorrhoids, ageing and constipation

Normal, healthy anal cushions are supported by a connective tissue framework. The effects of ageing as well as the repetitive passing of hard stool and straining weakens and fragments the supporting tissue. Once the tissue starts to “sag” and prolapse, the blood flow is restricted, resulting in trauma and swelling of the veins known as a haemorrhoid.1

Haemorrhoids after childbirth

Approximately 25 – 35 % of pregnant women are affected by haemorrhoids,2 but haemorrhoids may also form only after a woman has given birth (vaginal births).3

For 25 % of the women that develop haemorrhoids after giving birth, the condition may persist for up to 6 months post-partum.3
