Our expert says:
Some literature indicates, depending on the severity of the haemorrhoids, that with significant use of lubricant and proper relaxation and preparation of the anus for anal sex it is possible when you have hemorrhoids, iyet t's better to wait until they've healed. Friction and pressure from penetration can cause further irritation, discomfort, and pain. In addition, hemorrhoids that bleed may place you at increased risk for HIV infection, since the HIV virus can be transmitted more easily through an open "cut" or "wound." Whenever you have anal sex — if you have hemorrhoids or not — it's safer to use condoms and lube if you don't know your partner's HIV status.
