My mom told me sitting on cold concrete gives you hemorroids, too. Where does this stuff come from? I'll tell you what gives you hemorroids, stomach flu in your last trimester, that's what.

Pushing for hours, and I do mean hours, during childbirth is a really great way to get hemorroids, trust me. Been there, done that.

Doesn't have to be hours. I was in labor for a total of under 11 hours in three seperate pregnancies/childbirths. Active pushing labor, minutes. MAYBE over an hour if you add all three up.

And yeah. Women get 'em.

Maybe it's less a matter of pushing long than pushing hard?

I can't think of any reason, even without childbirth, a woman might not be just as susceptible to haemorroids as men. I know there are some obvious differences physically between men and women, but our bumholes are constructed the same. AFAIK

You probably hear more about men getting them, men are more likely to mention it, etc.

I personally have heard far TMI from my mother.
