Hemorrhoids in pregnancy

Anacare cream to soothe the itching and irritation associated with hemorrhoids during and after pregnancy.

Anacare cream with its natural ingredient formulation is perfect for relieving anal irritation, itching and hemorrhoids. Both during pregnancy and for new mums.

Anacare natural cream is ideal option to calm the itching and burning sensation associated with hemorrhoids in pregnancy, and after the birth.

This gentle cream was designed specifically with pregnant mums in mind and so was formulated to a uniquely natural recipe. During this special time in your life, it is vital to try to avoid applying synthetic ingredients. Natural is best and safest for both you and your baby. Unlike other creams, our formulation does not include any nasty synthetics, parabens or lidocaine, a powerful anesthetics, which just dulls the anal itching, without actually treating it.So we made Anacare using only natural active ingredients, such as witch hazel to calm the itch, calendula to reduce inflammation and soothe irritated tissue, sweet clover to improve blood circulation to the area and tea tree oil to create a long lasting, natural barrier to prevent bacteria being absorbed into the skin's epidermis.

An itchy anus associated with hemorrhoids in pregnancy and following the birth of a baby can understandingly become extremely uncomfortable. Mothers have told us that as well as suffering from itchy hemorrhoids they also feel embarrassed to talk about the problem with their doctors or midwives. Many pregnant women experience symptoms of anal itching due to the development of unwanted, but quite common, hemorrhoids – swollen pouches formed underneath the mucous membranes inside or outside the rectum. These bring uncomfortable symptoms such as soreness and anal itching or Pruritus ani, as it is called by doctors. Frequently, Pruritus ani begins gradually but the itch can become so intense that it becomes impossible to resist scratching. In this way a self-perpetuating itch-scratch cycle starts. By applying Anacare, you can help break this cycle.

Pregnancy can make you more prone to hemorrhoids. There are a variety of reasons why this should be and why you may therefore have anal itching or soreness on your bottom. Your growing uterus puts pressure on the pelvic veins and the inferior vena cava, a large vein on the right side of the body that receives blood from the lower limbs. This can slow the return of blood from the lower half of your body, which increases the pressure on the veins below your uterus and causes them to become more dilated or swollen. Equally, women with constipation during their pregnancy have a higher risk of hemorrhoids and anal itching due to the straining during bowel movements, causing increased pressure on the rectal veins. This condition commonly develops in pregnant women in the third trimester but has been known to also appear at any time during pregnancy. It may go away of its own accord after delivery, but may linger for several months more.

Unfortunately, hemorrhoids in pregnancy are one of the more unpleasant but least discussed features of such a joyful time. Anacare is specially designed to help avoid hemorrhoid associated irritation and itching through the application of its natural cream. Try it and you will see just how effective it is. Then that’ll be one less thing you have to worry about! 

In common with other products, if you are pregnant or breast feeding, you should discuss Anacare with your midwife or doctor before use
