Myth: Only Older People Get Hemorrhoids
I have hemorrhoids. My boyfriend has a very large penis, and we like to do it doggy style. The last time we had sex, the stimulation was so much that I thought I pooped, but it was a hemorrhoid poking out! It was so embarrassing that I had to stop, but he doesn't seem like he noticed. Now I'm too embarrassed to be in that position again, because I know he has a good view of everything. My hemorrhoids aren't painful or even itchy — they only affect my sex life.
Hemorrhoids — swollen veins in or around the anus or lower rectum — are a common problem that many people experience but few openly discuss. If you have hemorrhoids, there are things you can do. Many people will develop some form of hemorrhoid before age 50, he says. Fact: People can develop hemorrhoids at any age. Kimbrough says. According to the NIDDK, as people age, the connective tissue between the anus and rectum weakens, making them more susceptible to hemorrhoids. But the NIDDK points out that people of any age can get hemorrhoids — a common cause of hemorrhoids is pressure on the anus from straining associated with constipation or diarrhea. Pressure on the abdomen during pregnancy , which causes veins to swell, can also lead to hemorrhoids. Fact: Constipation is one of the biggest risk factors for developing hemorrhoids , Kimbrough says.
