What causes hemorrhoids?

What causes hemorrhoids?

Straining puts pressure on veins in your anus or rectum, causing hemorrhoids. You might think of them as varicose veins that affect your bottom. Any sort of straining that increases pressure on your belly or lower extremities can cause anal and rectal veins to become swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids may develop due to: Pelvic pressure from weight gain, especially during pregnancy. Pushing hard to have a bowel movement (poop) because of constipation. Straining to lift heavy objects or weightlifting.
