Right to start off I know you're not a doctor + i should ask a doctor, but i'm too embarrassed about the Hemorrhoids, i'm only 16.

i asked my friend and she said they're usually sexually transmitted. I'm a virgin + i don't understand why i have these, i can't go to a doctor because my parents will now + i can't tell them .. we just aren't like that.

To the point.. The reason i ask you is because it effects my boyfriend as well, we aren't ready to have sex but he still touches me i always move his hands up to my stomach which i really don't want to be doing, + i don't want him to think i don't trust him to go down there.
I haven't told him about the Hemorrhoids, i know i should i just don't want him to be ..repulsed i guess.
i've tried reading up + looking for cures but they're only available in shops + i live in a rural area + i can't ask my mum to get anything for me, we haven't got that kind of relationship.
i'm worried because i've had them a while, thinking they'd go away but they still haven't! I just want to be back to normal again :[ feel like there's something wrong with me with them.

Haemorrhoids are not sexually transmitted. Have you been formally diagnosed with haemorrhoids? Here is the NHS page about them:
http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/haemorrhoids/Pages/What-is-it-page.aspx
Whatever it is you're concerned about, you do need to see a doctor to put your mind at rest and get treatment if necessary.
They see people with all kinds of ailments; it won't be a big deal to them, and you don't need to feel embarrassed.

Hey there,

Haemorrhoids are not sexually transmitted and are also quite a common problem, they can be controlled by diet and excercise sometimes, but if they become uncomforatble for you, don't be too embarrassed to see a Doctor or Nurse about it, you would be surprised how many people they see with the same problems.

For now, try not to stress over them, as that won't help them in going away either, and know that there is nothing wrong with you for having them. [Smile]

you're right i guess, thankyou.
can you just walk in to your doctor + ask to be seen ? making appointments would involve my parents.. don't want that to happen.
i know you guys in the US have a different health care system though.
