Hemorrhoids are common in pregnancy, especially in the third trimester.
To avoid getting hemorrhoids, try eating a diet with a lot of fiber so you don’t get constipated. Also drink a lot of water each day and get regular exercise.
Try not to sit or stand for a long period of time. If you sit all day at work, stand up for a few minutes each hour.
