Patient: Can having an abortion cause major hemrroids in women

Doctor: I understand your concern about Hemorrhoids and abortion. Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lo wer rectum. Hemorrhoids may result from straining during bowel movements or from the increased pressure on these veins during pregnancy, among other causes.Usually they present in people suffering from chronic constipation, if you present this then you will defiantly have more chances of developing them, however having an abortion is not considered a risk factor for hemorrhoids. I hope I cleared your doubt.
