In general, 1 to 2 out of every 10 people suffers from haemorrhoids. The causes are often constipation. Between the ages of 45 and 65, the flare-ups may occur more often.
One out of every 3 women suffers from this disorder during pregnancy as of the 5thmonth and until the 3rdmonth post-partum. It is due to mild constipation and the compression of the foetus on the rectal venous plexus.
