Anatomical differences, excessive concerns over hygiene, social

? Next, straining during natural pregnancies commonly causes
the enlargement of internal hemorrhoids. In turn, enlarged
hemorrhoids cause pain while moving the bowels, and may
eventually lead to incomplete emptying and the ensuing chronic
? Next, women happen to be expert strainers, because they are

which usually means a diet high in fiber, and low in fat.
All of the above conditions, factors, food choices, and
