I'm 69 and have so many hemorrhoids around the anus that I can't pass a stool. For twenty years I haven't been able to pass one without liquefying the fecal matter with herbs or using enemas. I've had lifelong constipation and bled vaginally with all of my pregnancies, losing one of them. Now I can bleed pretty profusely with a bowel movement, but I can have several weeks without bleeding too. My daughter says I need progesterone. I don't use doctors, but try to adjust problems with diet and vegetable juicing. This is the first time I am on this site. My daughter says to just tell my story here, and read what people say.
