Pregnancy and prenatal care

My friend said she got piles in a pregnancy, do all women get them?

Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, are a common condition that can occur during pregnancy. They are caused by increased pressure on the veins in the rectal and pelvic area, which can be a result of the extra weight and pressure from the growing uterus. While not all women will get piles during pregnancy, it is a common condition that affects many pregnant women. It’s always best to consult with your OB-GYN to confirm the diagnosis and get proper treatment.
