Abstract

Haemorrhoids are a very common occurrence in pregnancy with a reported incidence of about 35%. It requires a holistic approach bearing in mind that the majority of medications and procedures are of unproven safety in pregnancy or with additional risks. Lots of general measures and therapies are available but none provides instant relief of a permanent cure sans risks. Conservatism is the rule but carefully considered surgery and even early delivery may be applicable in extreme cases where a combined caesarean and definitive treatment could be considered. As the problem is so common in pregnancy and no single ideal effective solution is available, yet with so many treatment options on offer, it is imperative that the obstetrician is fully aware of the possibilities.
