To find out how long do hemorrhoids last
will depend on different factors.
The first and main factor in how long do hemorrhoids last, is how many times have you had hemorrhoids?
If you are a virgin and it's your first bout of hemorrhoids. It will be easy to get rid of them and a couple of days is all it takes. The next time you get a bout, you will find a little harder and probably four days will do the trick.
Once you become a more seasoned customer, you will find two weeks not to be out of the ordinary.
You then get chronic.At this stage you start counting the days that you don't have " PAIN." Nothing else matters.
Having said that. The average time frame, taking into account the above and below mentioned factors is usually one week. That is usually the norm.
N.B. That is why it is so important to cure them the first time around and make sure they don't return.
Another factor to consider is what type of hemorrhoids have you got?
Different types will last shorter or longer.
If the internal hemorrhoid becomes prolapsed,then the duration period will be longer and can be anything up to two months.
If the external hemorrhoids become thrombosed then again the duration period can be anything up to three months, pending on any complications.
Another very important factor to determine the time it takes to heal or how long they last is what type of hemorrhoid treatments that you are using.
I found the cherry was fissure hemorrhoids. This for me lasted for more than a year. The Pain on a Daily basis was excruciating. Every bowel movement I would literally shed a few tears.
However this was what made me even more determined in finding a hemorrhoid cure.
To summarize how long do they last?
The answer really is a question "how long is a piece of string?" because although I have given you the average guidelines. It is very difficult to predict the exact duration period because of the many different factors to take into consideration.
However as mentioned before the average time period is seven days.
