She uses suppositories but when its too tight
to enter, she needs to use the hemorrhoid cream
to loosen it enough. After a few days its normal
but then the tightness comes back again. There is
no pain. Doctor does not understand my condition.
Very frustrated with this condition.
Any advise.

  • No mass blocking the anus? Could she become constipated and unable to dedicate? Can her doctor easily do a digital exam through the anus and vagina? These questions may be redundant however, not sure what has be completed. Does she see a GI doctor or a Family practice doctor?
