Hemorrhoids From Biking: Does Cycling Make Them Worse?

It goes without saying that it’s extremely uncomfortable to bike if you have hemorrhoids. Lots of people, cyclists included, get pain, itching, inflammation, and swelling from hemorrhoids, but cycling itself doesn’t cause the issue. It doesn’t improve the situation, however. The good news is that any hemorrhoid swelling medication should get you back on your bike shortly (expect to wait at least 24 hours, or however long it takes to reduce swelling) and you can expect relief immediately at home as soon as you start treatment with Doctor Butler’s. That doesn’t mean you can get back on your bike right away though. Here’s why:

Hemorrhoids and Biking

The reason biking makes your hemorrhoids feel worse is it puts pressure and chafes the already sensitive tissue, as well as restricting blood flow to the anus. Some people take a break from cycling while they’re recovering, but that’s up to the individual. However, Doctor Butler’s ointment can be used to reduce the swelling, pain, itching, and inflammation associated with a hemorrhoid. Once swelling has been reduced and you don’t feel chafing, you can safely bike. Again, biking won’t cause hemorrhoids, so as long as you have it under control it shouldn’t be the thing triggering another flare up.
