Pregnancy is a risk factor for constipation. Many of our patients with constipation complain that it worsens with pregnancy. In these cases, they may have to take laxatives to help with the constipation symptoms. Usually, we choose simple and safe laxatives that stay only in the ...

Hi, Rubber band ligation of piles should not cause the symptoms you have described. In most cases, there may be some local discomfort or blood stained stools days after the ligation process. The symptoms you have experienced are most likely unrelated to the procedure in my opi...
