Since my sister suffers from constipation the result is bleeding from these hemorrhoids. Once her period
is over, the hemorrhoids return to their normal size and
the bleeding stops
– until the following month.
For the past few months, to help her constipation and irritable bowel, she has been taking psyllium husks. The result is that the stools are much softer. An additional, unexpected result has been the absence of rectal bleeding during her period!
