    3 weeks ago I filmed a solo scene, and I was required to use a very thick dildo. When I filmed it I felt fine and I also felt fine after filming it. However, the next day I felt sore on the plane and I continued to feel sore when I clenched the sphincter muscle. I went to my doctor 2 weeks later and she told me I had a small external hemorrhoid. She prescribed me proctofoam and a softener which have both helped, but i still see a small swollen lump on the area. I was curious if there are any remedies anybody knows that will reduce the hemorrhoid or get rid of it. My doctor told me this problem should not occur again since I am young and it was not caused by constipation or other natural causes. She said it was more of an injury since it was induced by a sex toy, but that it would go away on its own. It's been 3 days using the foam and I still see it a little bit. Also, will this now get swollen every time I have anal sex? I'm really nervous about it because I feel it would be embarrassing and detrimental to my current job.

    External hemorroids do not go away in 3 days. Sometimes, they take weeks before they disappear and there is a chance they will return. If you decide to get penetrated in the future, you will know if they come back. There are no remedies to alleviate the problem other than what your doctor prescribed to you. If you are really that concerned, then you need to see a colorectal specialist. Good luck!

    Just give it a rest for a few weeks. It may not come back if you let it heal. If it turns into a recurring problem, you can have surgery done but I'd imagine that is no fun either.

    If you get hemorrhoids once, it's very likely you can get them again because the frequency with which they recur is based on your body's individual inflammatory response to tissue damage.

    Hell, I have inflammatory bowel disorder (ulcerative colitis) and literally CANNOT bottom because any physical damage to the rectum or colon, especially parts that are currently inflamed, can cause my already psycho immune system to go berserk and I'll have chronic fatigue and lower bowel aches for a week or two, followed by joint aches. Even a particularly nasty bowel movement can do the same to me (sorry, TMI.)
