Things that cause hemorrhoids


Chronic Diarrhea or Constipation

Chronic diarrhea or constipation is a more obvious cause of hemorrhoids. Sitting for long periods of time, especially on the toilet, can increase pressure in the veins of the anus. As soon as you feel the urge to pass a bowel movement, do not wait. If the urge goes away, the stool can dry out and be hard to pass.
