Okay, so I have had hemorrhoids for several years now. They were made worse by my pregnancy, and have been a slight (and sometimes not so slight) recurring problem for me.
They don't flare up unless I have a rough bowel movement, or several in one day, and don't often HURT unless there's a reason.
Okay, so when I lost my virginity, the boy was also a virgin, and whilst the pumping was going on, there was an accidental slip, and his penis went into my anus, far. And he was not a small guy. So, needless to say, I have been more than a little afraid of anal sex for quite some time now.
Well, I think my current boyfriend might be interested in it. And I trust him completely. i have never been so comfortable with anyone, sexually or otherwise in my entire life. I know that he will go slow, and follow the "rules" The thing is, I already have hemorrhoids... I was wondering if anyone had experience with this? Should I just not try it at all? Are there certain precautions I will need to take?
I am going to make sure IF we decide to do it that we use condoms, and plenty of lube, and have lots of foreplay first, both vaginal and anal (although no sharing of toys/fingers between the two). I have done quite a bit of research, and am fully expecting a possible mess and or flatulence, I'm just mainly concerned about the 'roids.)
ETA: The hemorrhoids, when flared up are external. I dont have any internal, as far as I can tell.
So, you ladies have often been so helpful to me, either through personal experience or by way of helping to find links to information. If you could lend a hand, I would greatly appreciate it, (and any other first time, especially after traumatic experience advice you guys have!)
