Hemroid Massage with an Anal Toy is for real.  And patented.

That statement sounds strange, doesn't it?  An anal toy that you insert knowing you have hemroids.  How can that be true?

First, if you are anal-phobic, you will need to get over it.  Men are the worst, equating any type of anal sex as a "gay marker".  But that is changing, with women finding that they enjoy the role-play game of "pegging", or using a strap on to have intercourse with their male partner.  And guys are coming around to it as part of safe experimentation, and finding that when done correctly, it can be quite enjoyable.

Second, regardless of whether you have hemroids or not, the insertion of any anal toy takes patience, relaxation, and lots of lubrication.  It is preferable if you put lube on your finger and push it into your anal canal past the hemroid; or better still would be to use a lube pusher to help the lube get all the way in, coating your anal canal.

Third, the type of lube you choose can make a difference in the feelings, regardless of whether you suffer from hemroids or not.  For example, if the lube you choose has "glycerin", using too much will cause you to need to use the toilet.  Gylcerin is often prescribed as an emema to stimulate a bowel movement.

You will notice that most lubes are promoting themselves as "glycerin free".

hemroid massage with anal toyFourth, there are two main manufacturers that sell hemroid massage toys.  The one we sell is the Aneros Peridise.  By the way, hemroid massage is patented!  

There are multiple sizes available, and many customers claim the smaller toy is the best.  There are multiple ripple points on the top designed to stimulate your hemroid.

To use:  It is best if you have had a bowel movement.  If not, use an anal syringe and pump a small amount of soapy water into your anus.  Let that sit, and then allow yourself to have a comfortable bowel movement.

To insert the toy, most beginners lie on their side, with the top knee all the way to the chest.  There are many other positions, and each user will find what is most comfortable with use.

If you are not using an anal shooter for pre-lubrication, then coat the anal toy in lube, and slowly push into your anus, gently pulling back, but not removing it, and slowly pushing it back in, adding lube to your anal canal.  You want it to glide on lube and not rub on skin.

Relax your anus, breathe deep.  Do not squeeze your muscles (the muscles that you use to stop your flow of pee).  Slowly insert the peridise just past the first ripple.  Squeeze the muscle hard and your body will pull the Peridise deeper.  If it doesn't slide further into your anus, gently push it past the next ripple.  Continue as needed until the toy is inserted. 

Rest, and allow your body to adjust to the item in your anus.  Breath deeply.  You might feel a gentle twitch in your anus, and you might find the toy moving by itself.  If that happens, be happy, it is what we are seeking.

Once fully inserted, begin squeezing your pee muscle; trying different variations of hard long squeezes and short faster squeezes.  The goal is to get the toy to move slightly in and then out with each contraction.  

Continue to do this on a regular basis for relief of your hemroids.  If however, you have a major hemroid flare-up, do not use the toy until the flare-up has subsided.

Although the official, patented medical side of this hemroids massage does not mention sexual pleasure, you can also keep the toy in your anus during intercourse or other sexual acts and experience more intense orgasms from having an anal toy in place.  Many users have discovered the two-fold use of this anal toy.

external hemorroid hemorrhoid

External Hemorroids “popping out”.  Usually occur after pushing during defecation, you can feel them outside of the body.  USUALLY not painful, and can push them back in after defecation.  If you suffer with externals, you will find that they get “triggered” by unknown aggravators and will appear at will.

Hemorrhoidectomy – the golden standard of hemorroids treatment of the 4th stage, and also at a clottage of the dropped out hemorrhoidal units. Hemorrhoidectomy is also done to patients with hemorroids of 3d stage with a greater hemorrhoidal units.

At this intervention the site of a peri-anal skin and the mucous rectum is selected, located above hemorrhoidal unit which is ligated and crossed. Subsequently there is a bracing of a mucosa of a rectum to a subject tissues. The intervention is carried out within one day. The results are very good, relapses of disease are observed seldomly.

Besides a traditional scalpel hemorrhoidectomy can be carried out with the use of an electro-coagulation and the laser. For the prevention of a stenosis of the anal channel and conservation of sensitivity between the wounds formed at excision of hemorrhoidal units, leave dermo-mucous intersections. These wounds can be taken in (closed hemorrhoidectomy) or to leave opened (opened hemorrhoidectomy). The choice of a technique depends on preferences of the surgeon.

In order to prevent pain and an ischuria (the most frequent complications after hemorrhoidectomy) it is not necessary to pad the proctal channel. Patients are recommended to limit the liquid reception. To decrease of a pain in the early postoperative period, 0,2 % nitroglycerinum cream is applied, eliminating a spastic stricture of a rectum sphincter.

Also analgetics and sedentary baths are appointed . If the emiction was restored, plentiful drink and the laxatives enlarging volume of intestinal contents are recommended. It normalizes defication and warns constipation. Manual research of a rectum is being done in 1 or 3 weeks after the operation for exception of a stenosis of the proctal channel.

There are a number of over the counter creams that can be purchased to relieve some of the pressure and aggravation of hemorrhoids.

One prescription medicine that was prescribed to me before was “Reparil Gel N”.

HYDROCORTISONE CREAMS are also quite effective in reducing the itch caused by hemorrhoids.


– It is possible to cure hemorrhoid in any stage, as always the earlier you consult the doctor, the more likely you can avoid surgical hemorrhoid treatment and hospitalization.

– For the exact diagnostics of a hemorrhoid it’s not enough to make a simple examination and manual research. The doctor should make an anoscopy or proctosigmoidoscope.

– If you have a rectal bleeding, do not hasten to think of hemorrhoid – consult the proctologist for inspection first. A source of bleeding should be established immediately.

The basic treatments:

Hemorrhoid treatment is possible in any stage. Only the techniques applied during treatment can be differ.

– For treatment of the internal, external and combined hemorrhoid in an initial stage of it’s development (1 stage) in most cases correctly appointed conservative therapy is sufficient. When bleeding internal hemorroids of 1 stage infra-red coagulation is often needed.

– When an internal hemorrhoid of 2nd stage, depending on a structure and sizes of hemorrhoidal units, either infra-red coagulation or a ligation by latex rings.

– When an internal hemorrhoid of 3 stages with abaissement of hemorrhoidal units the ligation by latex rings is needed.

– At the internal, external, combined hemorrhoid of 4 stages surgical treatment(hemorrhoidectomy) can be done.

– External hemorroids treatment (a clottage of external hemorrhoidal unit) is the following:

o Conservative therapy – in most cases;

o A thrombectomy – excision of a thrombus (a clot of a venous blood). The thrombectomy is a cut of the thrombosed unit and excision of a thrombus through it. Mostly done when there are large units that deliver the patient a strong dyscomfort, and conservative therapy is noneffective or can take too much time. The given procedure does not demand hospitalization;

o Excising of an external hemorrhoidal unit – the procedure allows to remove the clottage reason – external hemorrhoidal unit. It is the most effective technique of an external hemorroids treatment as allows to get rid in the subsequent of periodically arising exacerbations;

o Excising of external unit is done when an acute clottage and conservative therapy is noneffective, or the thrombosed unit delivers a strong dyscomfort. In overwhelming majority of cases the given procedure is made in out-patient conditions, under local anesthesia and does not demand hospitalization.

Other methods of treatment of a hemorrhoid, such as cryotherapy, monopolar coagulation, bipolar coagulation, laser coagulation either little applied in a medical practice, or are less effective, or are expensive enough.


Thrombosed external hemorroids are those that occur outside of the anal verge (the distal end of the anal canal). They are usually painful, and are often accompanied by pruritus ani or an itching, swelling, and burning sensation. If the vein ruptures and a blood clot develops, the hemorrhoid becomes a thrombosed external hemorrhoid.

The set of veins just about the anus causes problems when blood clots form in them, and they turn into large and painful. (These are called thrombosed external hemorroids.) You could note bleeding and a tender lump on the edge of the anus.

Bleeding starts when the swollen veins are hurt or broken by straining or rubbing. People who have external hemorroids may experience itching at the anus too. This might outcome from draining mucus and irritation caused by too much rubbing or cleaning of the anus.

Hemorroids in women becomes aggravated mainly during the pregnancy and in childbirth. In women who have not given birth yet the hemorroids occurs 5 times less often, than at those who gave birth even once.

An age factor plays the important role in pregnancy hemorroids: after 30 years hemroids occur 3 times more often, than at pregnancy in 20 years. Pregnancy, not being the basic pathogenic factor of a hemorroids, often aggravates its clinical effect. On the other hand, the hemorroids of pregnant women often complicate giving birth and the postnatal period.

Pregnancy hemorroid occurrence is a frequent enough phenomenon, but still occurs less than in men. Some women, knowing about existence of this disease, consider it inevitable during pregnancy or after giving birth and consequently do not give special importance to it. Others wrongly bind signs of hemorroids to signs of the pregnancy.

Clinical signs of a hemorroids at pregnancy do not differ from those at usual current of disease. It is more often pain in an anus, rectal bleeding and a anal itch.

Approximately 20 % of pregnant women have the combination of hemorroids and varicose phlebectasia of the bottom extremities, including half from hassick of the extensive lesion of venous system – a perineum, external genitals, inguinal areas. All these women’s family predisposition to a venous pathology is in most cases taped. In them, as a rule, the hemorroids and a varicose phlebectasia appear in I or in the beginning of II trimester of pregnancy.

In general, as it has been specified above, the hemorroids and varicose expansion of usual veins are seldom combined, the pathogenesis of these diseases varies. However, in pregnant women especially inclined to a venous pathology, such combination, naturally, is observed more often. The stagnation of a blood in veins of a basin and the bottom half of trunk, certainly, aggravates both a pathology of a cavernous tissue of a rectum, and veins of a usual structure.

The constipation often occurring in  women during the pregnancy, in the postnatal period are even more aggravated and usually last within 3-5 weeks, and then pass (if they were not inherent to the given puerpera in general). During this period the hemorroids can proceed especially painfully.

Considering all this, to all women in the puerperal period recommend the nutrition rich with a cellulose (in particular, wheaten bran), physiotherapy exercises, hygienic gymnastics in the morning, 2-3 times a day on 15 minutes giving a body a horizontal position with the raised position of a basin, a water toilet of the anus are obligatory.

All these measures promote the improvement of a colon functions, rising the tonus of muscles of the proctal and an abdominal wall, decrease of the development of stagnation in vessels of organs of a small basin.


The internal hemorroids arise inside of an anus under its mucous. The internal hemorroids are usually not so painful, as veins settle down in the anus far from the nerve endings.

The most frequent sign is a painless bleeding during defecation. In this case, even if nothing is disturbing, it is necessary to immediately consult the proctologist as release of blood from a rectum can be a sign not only a hemorroids, but also an anal fissure, or cancer.

The internal hemorroids can be accompanied by a strong pain, if the hemorrhoid ball completely drops out of an anus and is not pushed back.

In some cases, internal hemorroids that have fallen outside of the anus (prolapsed), or that bleed too much, must be removed. Your doctor may be able to remove them during an outpatient visit to his office or to the hospital.

A number of methods in addition to the common surgery with a scalpel can be used to remove or reduce the size of hemorroids. The surgeon may decide to use a technique when a rubber band is put around the base of the hemorrhoid. The band cuts off circulation, and the hemorrhoid withers away within a few days. This method is used just for internal hemorroids.

Rubber band ligation is the most popular way of treatment for internal hemorroids because it causes comparatively little pain through the procedure and does not need anesthesia.

Pathognomonic symptoms of an external hemroids are the pain, a protrusion of units and bleeding which usually develops after or during defecation and often leads to an appreciable loss of blood and anemia. In most cases of hemorrhoidal bleeding, one notice traces of a blood on toilet paper.

The exacerbation of an external hemorroids is always to some extent morbid. The ulceration or a clottage of units can cause a bad pain. Very strong painful syndromes develops with the special form of disease – an acute attack of a hemorroids, which is the infringement of sharply hydropic or thrombosed hemorrhoidal units.

The clottage of an external hemorroid can lead to a protrusion of peri-anal area and the characteristic sensation of an “alien body” in an ano-rectal zone and, in some rare cases is complicated by a gangrene of hemorrhoidal units.

Decompensation of an internal hemorroids is in most cases less morbid, than in the case of the external hemorroids. The sensation of an incomplete defecation or its impossibility is typical for internal hemorroids. The feeling of completeness in a rectum, a syndrome of the “laced up” rectum is also characteristic.

With the internal hemorroids, it’s also possible to obtain a slime or pus during defecation. The III and IV internal hemorroids stages can become complicated by a clottage, an ulceration and gangrene of set or restrained hemorrhoidal units, that is accompanied by an intensifying of pain, and the occurrence of signs of systemic intoxication and/or a fever. If frequent relapses occur, the damage to the internal sphincter of the rectum and incontinence of feces can be generated.

logo.giflogo According to the World organization of public health 70 % of the population of globe are genetically predisposed to occurrence of a varicose phlebectasia (and one of its forms – hemorroids).

And even though “Hemorroids” is the most common spelling for the problem, the correct way to spell the word is “hemorrhoids“.  But about 70% of us spell it wrong most of the time!

Hemorrhoids represent a varicose phlebectasia of the anal channel. Blood vessels constantly are under enough greater overpressure of a blood, and this pressure is constrained with walls of vessels, the rigidity of which is defined by a degree of development of a connecting tissue, mainly rigid and not extensible fiber of a collagen.

Hemorroids arise only in people with hereditary predisposition to this disease. At a natural underdevelopment of a connecting tissue of a wall of vessels in places with the most weak connecting tissue can not maintain pressure of a blood and start to be thinned. The degree of development of a connecting tissue is defined only genetically and does not give in to radical change (or training).

Therefore, one person can have a varicose phlebectasia, and others cannot. If the person has a genetic predilection to a hemorroids they will be inevitably more likely to suffer.  People inclined to hemorrhoids find that the condition can be aggravated with a sedentary way of life, with frequent or chronic constipation, or with the regular ingestion of alcohol and spicy food.

The reasons for the occurrence of a hemorroids, also can be the various illnesses decreasing outflow of blood from organs of the small basin, organs of an abdominal cavity (chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, disease of the intestine, gynecologic problems etc.).

Hemorroids arises at 80 % of women toward the end of pregnancy or after it, and also in people inclined to hemorrhoids, which labour activity is bound to include serious exercise stress.
