There are small veins located in the perianal area and inside the lower portion of the rectum. Sometimes they will become edematous and inflamed, while these hemorrhoids do not potentially cause any genuine harm, they can be very bothersome to pregnant females. There are two different types of hemorrhoids including:
- Internal hemorrhoids are normally found in the lower portion of the rectum
- External hemorrhoids are normally found under the skin, in the perianal area
Internal hemorrhoids are known for causing the most problems, because they will sometimes prolapse (protrude) though the anal opening, when this occurs the victim will begin to experience mild to severe symptoms.
