Burst hemorrhoids can be embarrassing especially if you are out in public when it transpires. However, in the majority of cases, burst hemorrhoids are not life threatening. In fact, when a hemorrhoid bursts, it relieves a great majority of the pain associated with the hemorrhoid. Around 75% of individuals report a reduction in pain almost immediately.
Burst hemorrhoids may produce considerable amounts of blood but in most cases burst hemorrhoids don’t bleed long. A sanitary pad can be used to collect the blood and fluid. If you suspect the possibility of having a bust hemorrhoid, you can place the sanitary pad so it covers your rectum. If the burst hemorrhoid does last longer than 10 minutes, it would be advised to see your doctor.

Burst hemorrhoids occur when these blood vessels become inflamed and then rupture. This of courses can be painful and result in bleeding.
