I'm 36 weeks pregnant and I think I have hemorrhoid as I can feel my anus is kind of swollen. Is this a concern? It's only swollen but not really painful and I have no problem when I have bowel movements.
Hello,

Welcome and thank you for the question.

It is normal to get hemorrhoids in late pregnancy due to the pressure on the pelvic veins by the enlarging uterus. As long as there are no symptoms like pain, bleeding, itching etc, it is not a matter of concern.

I hope this helps.
