So, I've never had a hemmorrhoid, that I know of...didn't even have any after I had Cal. And was deemed hemmorrhoid-free after having Finn. But today after a BM I took a shower and when I was washing down there I...felt...something. Like a flap of skin, sort of. Got out the trusty hand mirror and was appalled at what I saw. At first glance, I was worried about much worse things (rectal prolapse, anyone?) until I looked online and saw pics of hemmorrhoids (lucky me), and it does appear that's what I have. Only mine aren't red or irritated, just the "normal" color of that region. AND they don't hurt. Or itch. So...what's up with that? I always thought they were really painful/itchy? DH says maybe it's after they get irritated that they start to feel like that?
Those of you with experience...is this what I have? Also, it feels "weird" down there. Kinda like something's hanging out of me.
Boy, am I glad I have you ladies. This is not a topic I care to discuss IRL!
