like that, except *blue*

If you are related to me by marriage, stop reading this immediately. If you are related to me by blood or not at all, pull up a pillow, we are going to be talking about my seven-months-pregnant, thrombosed-hemorrhoidal, still cute and perky as long as you’re not looking in the wrong place, ass. Where is the wrong place in which you might be looking, say if you were my husband and you were having doggy-style sex with me? TRICK QUESTION! You, my husband, who ARE NOT READING THIS, are not having sex with me, because of my ass. [Also, TRIGGER WARNING, FOR GROSSNESS.]

“Rebecca, how is your ass?” you have been ass-king (whee! dad jokes!) and the answer is “IT IS VERY BAD, THANK YOU!”

Let’s talk about what a baby does to your ass. First, a baby might make your ass bigger! This is good. It makes fat stores of food for you and the baby, plus Americans have recently found their inner love of butts, thank you Miss Kardashian. As my ass needed a bit of cushion, this is a fine development, and I have no complaints. Second, the baby, who at seven months weighs about as much as a chuck roast, is rolling back and forth on your intestines and is making it hard for you to poo, so then you get a hemorrhoid. Hemorrhoids are burny and itchy and no fun, and nobody likes a hemorrhoid. Like, there is NO HEMORRHOID FETISH anywhere in the world, that is how much no fun there are, and there are fetishes for killing mice with high-heeled shoes :(

But you tell someone you have a hemorrhoid — and why not tell them? Why are our pregnant bodies so off-limits to people knowing what is up with them? And why do you (not I) hide your periods too, while we’re at it? Why not, when people ask how you are today, say “I am menstruating, thank you!” That’s what I did, in the long ago days when I menstruated. Because feminism.

Where were we? You tell someone you have a hemorrhoid, and they are like, mmmm, sucks, try witch hazel, and then you have to sexplain, NO, this is a THROMBOSED hemorrhoid, not a regular hemorrhoid, and IT HAS TURNED PURPLE and I had to GO TO THE ER to get it sliced open with a No. 11 scalpel, and then the ER doctor SQUOZE IT LIKE A ZIT to get the bad blood clot out my butt (oh, wait, it is ALREADY out my butt, it is on the outside of my butt and looks like … a snail? Sure, a snail), and the whole time at the ER you are laughing and being charming (or I am anyway) because the one thing you want is the ER staff’s approval, because you are not like those other idiots who show up at the ER all like, “hey doc, can you look at this thing on my butt?” and you are very brave and also self-effacing (is it okay I showed up at the ER to have you look at my butt?) and you tell them you are already on Vicodin because you had Vicodin left over from your wisdom teeth a year ago, which proves you are not a drug seeker or you would not have any Vicodin left over from your wisdom teeth a year ago, and the ER staff there-there’s you and agrees you are not a drug seeker. Or maybe you are. Anyway, they agreed I wasn’t, and they gave me more Vicodin and something to help me poo. After taking the scalpel and the squeezing to the thing on my butt. OH! and the Lidocaine injection before the scalpeling and squeezing, which HOO FUCKING BOY DOES THAT BURN LIKE FUCK!

Also, they say the pregnant ladies report to them that the thrombosed hemorrhoids hurt worse than labor, and they poor-you you, and you go home, and take your Vicodin, and you lie around and whine to your PRINCE of a husband and he is SO NICE TO YOU and then a day or two later, you are fine, and the hemorrhoid is still there, on the outside of your butt looking sluggy, but it no longer hurts, and you take what you can get, as long as it is not doggy-style, because your husband doesn’t need to see that!

It is not appealing.

And then you spend the next three weeks playing with the baby in your babymaker, she is very playful! She rolls around and does tricks, like Flipper! She punches you all over the place, like, if you had nads, she would be punching you in them! It is fun! And then one day, you take your Sunday drive to Helena, Montana (shut up, it is a thing to do), and by the end of the long drive, your butt hurts, but you have just been sitting on it too long, until the next day when you pull out your trusty hand mirror and see a SECOND THROMBOSED HEMORRHOID has popped out on the other side of your anus from the first thrombosed hemorrhoid (which at any rate is no longer thrombosed), and they are twinsies, and your anus looks like Angelina Jolie’s mouth.

So you go BACK TO THE FUCKING ER, and this time your ob-gyn is already there doing something else, so he is the one who cuts open your ass and squeezes your blood clot, but he does not give you any more Vicodin, which is fine because you don’t ask for any because you had some left over from last time you got your ass scalpeled (BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A DRUG SEEKER) until two days later when YOU DON’T have any left over anymore and you call his office to Oliver Twist-style beg for some more drugs, but the nurses don’t call you back till closing time and then they’re like “oooohhhhhhh, yeah, well we will call you in the morning and tell you whether you can have drugs, in the meantime have you tried Ibuprofen?” and you are PRETTY FUCKING MAD AT THOSE NURSES, and your husband might be kind of over all of it, including the whining and the beached whaleness and the marrying of you — who can know? if he says he isn’t he is probably lying! — and now it is 9:45 the next day and who has not called back? The nurses have not called back! And that’s when you send your husband out to the mean streets of Missoula, Montana, to find you some crack.

And that is what happens to your butt on pregnancy, it is nature’s miracle funtimes, pregnancy is awesome, boy this is great, fuck you all, the end.

What You Can Do About Your Thrombosed Hemorrhoids

  • Take a bath.
  • Take another bath.
  • Sit on some ice.
  • Stay very very still and do not move ever.
  • Do you happen to have some Lidocaine solution around from when your husband had stomatitis? Wipe some on your ass with a cotton ball. It won’t really help, but it is something to do.
  • Take another bath.
  • Tuck’s medicated pads? Sure why not.
  • Eat drugs.
  • Send money, for drugs.

      1) cause said pregnancy

      3) do what SHE tells you to do because she actually knows what needs to be done
      4) let her cripple you for life with her bare hands, during transition and delivery

    Sorry to bust your bubble but a quick Google search of “hemorrhoid fetish” produced tons of stomach-churning results, such as this one:

    I am slightly surprised that this fetish did not originate in German porn.

        I decline to Google search “Japanese hemorrhoid fetish videos.” I’ve done the spade work. Let others take up the cause.

    I have an alternate recommendation…and yes you are allowed to laugh your ass off…but get a Squatty Potty. You can buy it on Amazon. I am a very satisfied customer and when my friend was pregnant I lent her my extra one and she and her husband found it worked very well for both of them (they bought their own). Ok, everyone can laugh….but I spend very little time in the bathroom these days.

  • toughsister

    Why are Americans such exhibitionists? Would a French, German, Spanish, Argentinian or Indian pregnant lady make her hemorrhoids the subject of an on-line article?

      You were warned.
      And exhibitionism? This is the internet, fer cryin out loud!

        No pics. Just a nauseatingly long article.

    • Pseudonym

      Why stop there? Would a Maldivian, Maltese, or Ni-Vanuatu pregnant lady write about hemorrhoids on the on-line either?

    • Captain Kraut

      Well, pregnancy doesn’t really come into it, but you might consider german author Charlotte Roche’s international bestseller Wetlands (Feuchtgebiete in german), probably the funniest (and most disgusting) book ever written on the topic of hemorrhoids.
      Does that answer your question?

    Trix, to put your hemorrhoid in perspective instead of Helena, maybe next time you and Shy and Trixel drive to Havre. You might have to blindfold Shy, as he’s been to Havre, and likely would be hesitant to return. That said, Havre with its many assholes would provide butt perspective.

    So sorry Trix! I’m just starting 2nd trimester, the pooping issues are LAME. Also had a surprise return of morning sickness yesterday after 2 weeks vomit free! Woohoo!

    This is starting to sound like BabyCenter (aka “the Stanford Prison Experiment with nipples”) so to sum up: I hope your baby girl remains safe & healthy in her house, and that your discomforts are soon at an end.

    “Like, there is NO HEMORRHOID FETISH anywhere in the world, that is how much no fun there are, and there are fetishes for killing mice with high-heeled shoes :(”

    That is such a good combination of 1) never thought about that 2) hilarious 3) horrifying and 4) completely true.

    EDIT: Sadly, I see I too was mistaken about the completely true part wrt no fetish. I think I’m going to just wipe out this knowledge and carry on as if I still knew this to be true.

    You absolutely should not be taking ibuprofen in the third trimester. Seriously. It is associated with premature closure of the ductus arteriosis.

    • Pseudonym

      Are any NSAIDs safe?

      • Zyxomma

        No. Aspirin (or willow-bark tea, if you prefer old school) prevents blood clotting, so the next one, if there is a next one, won’t thrombose.

      • CalvinianChoice

        Safety is relative, but I would avoid all NSAID’s in the third trimester.

  • Don’t think of them as hemorrhoids – think of them as pop-up ads on your anus.

    When I was a kid, my dad had super-sized thrombosed ‘rhoids that also required surgical removal, on his birthday. To cheer him up, my mom hired a dude in a gorilla suit to do a sexy-funny belly dance in his hospital room. My dad got so excited by the whole thing that he finally had to poop – he hustled to the bathroom, promptly passed out, and fell face first on the floor, ripping the sink out of the wall on the way down. He broke his nose, needed a bunch of stitches on his forehead, and was hospitalized for two more days. The End.

    (Get butt-better soon, Becca!)

    • glasspusher

      • Butt out, asshole!

        You’d appreciate the denouement to the story:

        After it took four men more then ten minutes to gain access to the bathroom because an unconscious 225 lb man and a 50 lb sink were blocking the entrance, it finally occurred to hospital administrators that maybe having the doors open inward was not just a design misstep, but also inevitable lawsuit fodder. The bathroom doors in all of the patients’ rooms throughout the hospital were re-hung within a month.

        Just think of how many innocent lives those purple polyps of pain may have inadvertently saved that day…

    Hey Rebecca,
    Thanks very much for that! As a guy, I truly need to be enlightened on women’s health issues, and that story was a major step forward. I applaud you for being so brave and unflinching.

    Now, I actually only skimmed it, but just the same. One question: did it hurt when Angelina Jolie was kissing your ass? Or was it fun? I couldn’t quite tell.

  • Marceline

    Before I tell you this, I’m just going to remind you that you started this conversation Ms. Schoenkopf. Not me. YOU.

    Afrin. (Yes, the nasal spray.) Spray it up your ass and it shuts the swelling down. The same thing that takes down the swelling in your nasal membranes works on your poop chute. I recommend the extra moisturizing, no-drip formula. Do NOT use the sinus variety because it has menthol. You DO NOT want menthol up your butt. Trust. (Or maybe you do. I don’t judge.)

    And with this posting ends any chance I ever had of running for office.

    This is the third time I’m rewriting this. I can’t phrase it so that it doesn’t sound like an evil sick joke. Google Vick’s Vapor rub for roids.

    Good luck, and please don’t send anyone over here to kill me.

    This prolly won’t help the ‘rhoids, but for the next two months you want to go swimming – okay, floating – as often as possible. When I was in the last month of my pregnancy – and then two weeks more! – we had a hot tub which we set to body temperature and I was in that thing every day. Floating took off all the pressure of that babbie pressing down on me. (He was over 10 pounds when he was born, btw. Top that.)

    Here’s sending best wishes and prayers for a quick recovery, Rebecca!

    Coming from a medical professional who works in an ER and deals with DSBs on a daily basis….if you’re hurting, ask for pain relief. Please, please do. There are few things worse than knowing one of your patients is going through horrendous pain and trying to “tough it out” in fear of being called a druggie.

    Trust me, we can tell the DSBs from the legit people. Just ask. We don’t mind if you’re actually hurting…and a thrombosed hemorrhoid hurts.

      thatz cuz the DEA wanted to reduce the number of hydrocodone prescriptions on the street and so made it a schedule II for which you need a written prescription and that might have reduced the number of prescriptions diverted to recreational use, but makes our job harder.

    Full disclosure: I used to do a LOT of reading on the can, and
    suffered the indignities of ‘roid-stuffing from about age 15 thru 38,
    when I had them operated on, so been there, had that, don’t want the

    Probably my easiest dump ever was in Cozumel on a shore dive, where
    the urge hit me mid-dive, and I’d have had to climb a ladder to get back
    on the surface in full scuba gear, and then walk to my hotel room
    across the street.

    Fortunately, I was a highly-trained PADI Instructor, so I knew just
    what to do. I went to a place on the sandy bottom nearby about 30 feet
    down where no-one was around, dumped all the air from my BC, removed my
    BC and weight belt holding onto the belt. Then I unzipped my wetsuit,
    peeled it down to my knees, faced INTO the current [IMPORTANT!], squatted, and let fly.

    That was probably the best, easiest, most comfortable shit I’ve ever
    taken in my 74 years. Also, as a political message at the time, the
    current went toward Cuba.

    So, Becca, if they persist for long after the delivery of Trixel, don’t wait too long for surgical relief.

I first met her at the Dallas dinky-thing in Dallas on 20 June 2013, and again in Austin two days later at East Side Pies. As I was leaving, she hugged me, but that was all, I swear, Shy. I took my frustrations out on the track the next day:

      Thanks. I went to that concert. I loved the Fillmore.

    Poor, poor you, Becks. I did not have one of them thar things when I was pregnant, but I had many other terrible things, so I am not jealous! Also, I, too, always entertain the ER staff like crazy, even when I might actually be dying of Lupus, so we totally would have fun together, even and especially if we WERE drug-seeking! Anyway, nothing hurts worse than labor, so don’t let them fool you on that one, but then you have a baby, so it’s (mostly) really worth it all. Love, Annie

      I have heard from female friends that nothing hurts worse than stepping on a Lego.

    My children are the most wonderful amazing human beings on the planet, and have been from the time they were tiny, but I will basically never forgive them for pregnancy.

    As a member of the hemorrhoid club I have no snark.
    Just a deep understanding of you’re pain (in the ass) that we club members could never explain to the uninitiated.
    I’ve felt you’re pain and it fuck’n sucks.
    I’ve even resorted to tucking those little bastards back to bed.
    Just shows how far we will go.

    NURSES like me love fun patients in the ER. All that stabbing and gunshot victims can be a bit tedious. We all love a good ass story like yours.

      I love nurses so much. They make the best GFs/lovers EVAR!

    evidently, no one has ever mentioned to editrix that the first, quickest, and most prevalent and long-lasting side effect of vicodin is constipation…so, you might take that under advisement before you pop too many of those, editrix…happy squatting!

      I always ate a 1/2 dozen prunes with each tablet, and it seemed to work out OK.

    Worse pain ever, for sure. Happened to me twice, finally had surgery.

  • jpopelish .

    Have you tried using gravity, instead of fighting it. It looks very silly, but pose for a while, with your but higher than the rest of your body. By the way, I had my wife lance mine, instead of going to the ER. Of course, I wasn’t pregnant, so your mileage may vary.

    It was the first time i ever uttered to the Sweetest Husband In The World, “You did this to e you fucking bastard!” He just laughed and made consoling sounds, but slept with one eye open ever after.

    I am wincing and laughing.
    Mostly wincing.

    until the next day when you pull out your trusty hand mirror

    Oh, you totally used your smartphone. You probably even asked Siri how it looked.

  • So… no buttsechs then, I guess?

    Let me add this article to my list of things I was better off not knowing lol.

    Hi! there. I just want to share my experiences with hemorrhoids. After I gave birth with my third baby, I got external hemorrhoids. Weeks before I experienced constipation, itching around the anus or rectal area and painful bowel movement. Days passed, the pain was excruciating and I bled profusely from my anal canal. I am having a hard with this unbearable disease and it brings uncomfortable sensation. I consulted my doctor and she advised me to undergo surgery. I don’t like surgery so I did everything to heal my hemorrhoids. My husband browsed the internet and he found <a href=" Proctozone HC Cream as a treatment of hemorrhoids. In my wish to be healed I am taking this medication for treating my hemorrhoids. I’ve been maintaining this for almost 4 weeks. My friend also suggested me to use aloe vera gel for the faster healing. I’ve noticed an improvement and I feel that the pain was slowly gone.

    Gee, and with my pregnancy, I only got twin babbies, not twin thrombosed hemmorhoids. I feel cheated.
    ( to be honest, my ‘roid was a singleton- not thrombosed, but still with me almst 15 years later. Maybe that counts for something?)
