If you notice that your hemorrhoids are no longer held within your body, you should try to very gently push them back inside of your body. Make sure your hands are clean before you attempt this. Should this occur, see a doctor immediately; however, you may be able to avoid further damage if they have not swollen too much.

Fiber comes in many forms and can be obtained from supplements if necessary. These supplements come as a powder you can mix with juice or water.
