Opinion of patients and doctors
Having studied the opinions of patients and doctors who use Natalside suppositories in their practice, it is possible to reveal additional subtleties and nuances of using the drug.
Hemorrhoids appeared on my 8th month of pregnancy. Constantly bothered by an itch in the anus, hemorrhoids got out, each evacuation of the intestine was accompanied by the release of scarlet blood, it became painful to sit and walk.
I was very afraid to take any medication because of the risk of harming the baby, but the doctor calmed me down, saying that the drug Natalsid is completely natural and it does not have a negative effect on the fetus.
I inserted it in the morning and in the evening for 14 days. I felt relief immediately. On the third day the hemorrhoidal nodes began to decrease in size.
However, because of the threat of miscarriage, I did not make cleansing enemas, but on the second day my stool was normalized, and the need for them disappeared by itself. Although before the treatment began to suffer constipation all the time.
After the birth of the son, the hemorrhoids recovered again, but I again turned to a proven and reliable remedy, since this drug is allowed during lactation.
