Hemorrhoids are areas of blood vessels inside and outside of the rectum that can cause itching, slight bleeding, and sometimes pain.

While hemorrhoids can be unpleasant and painful, they are easily treated and very preventable.

Anal sex can irritate existing hemorrhoids for some people. However, anal sex itself is not likely to cause hemorrhoids if a person did not already have them.
