Understanding Piles in Women: Causes and Prevalence

Understanding piles in women - causes & prevalence

Piles in Women:

Many women suffer from piles. Piles is common among pregnant women and women above 40 years of age. At Chennai Laser Gastro, we understand the significance of raising awareness about this issue and providing effective treatment options. There are several causes for the development of haemorrhoids in women, such as:

  • Pregnancy:

Pregnancy puts pressure on the pelvis and this automatically leads to an increase in the size of the anal and rectal blood vessels and thus, the formation of piles. After birth, these vessels normally dissipate.

  • Constipation

Constipation puts a stain on the anal canal which leads to piles. This is common in pregnant women. A lack of fibre in the diet can lead to constipation.

  • Diarrhoea

Diarrhoea patients who have suffered from it for a long period of time may also suffer from piles. This is because it increases the irritation and swelling of haemorrhoids which leads to inflammation and painful sensations.

  • Prolonged sitting

Prolonged sitting due to a job or something else puts pressure on the hips making the muscles spread out. The small veins around the anus and rectum stretch and cause pain and swelling in the veins.

  • Heavy lifting

People who work out excessively and lift weights that are too heavy for them are prone to haemorrhoids.

Laser Surgery for Piles:

The treatment follows a laser beam aimed at the affected area in a precise and focused manner. The laser removes the tissue. The surrounding healthy tissues are unaffected.

There are several advantages for patients who have laser surgery. They are as follows:

  • Painless and easy treatment method:

A majority of patients experience no pain during laser piles surgery. If they do feel pain it is less than in laser surgery. Seek consultation from qualified and experienced doctors.

  • Safer Option:

Laser piles surgery is a safe and effective surgical option for removing piles. This treatment is safer than other, more conventional, surgeries.

  • Minimal Bleeding:

Laser beams cut the piles and seal the bleeding tissue. This results in the bare minimum blood loss. The sealing further lowers the chances of infection and the tissue is not harmed.

  • Quick Healing:

The healing after laser surgery is very quick. It starts as soon as the surgery is complete. The overall recovery time is less than other surgical procedures. Patients go back to their normal lives within a few days
