It got to the point where all I could do was manage the pain, let alone reduce the hemorrhoids. They kept getting worse no matter what I tried. Within 3 days of taking this product my hemorrhoids were noticeably smaller and less painful. I am currently at one week and I no longer have to apply any ointments or other stuff "down there." The hemorrhoids are still there but they are much smaller and no longer hurt or flare up. I will update this review with progress reports as I continue to take this product.

Updates...

3 days:
Hemorrhoids are noticeably smaller and less painful.

7 days:
No longer have to apply any ointments or other stuff "down there."

14 days:
Only slight improvement from 7 days. No more pain or flare ups. Totally under control now. There is still some enlarged tissue. Still hoping for total elimination of hemorrhoids, but I can't complain at the progress so far.

21 days:
Holding steady. Hemorrhoids are virtually gone. Still there is some enlarged tissue left over from the hemorrhoids, but the remaining tissue seems to be shrinking slowly.

28 days:
At this point it seems that the residual enlarged tissue is just stretched skin, but there is no more hemorrhoid. I started using topical stuff to shrink that left over tissue. For the last week I also experimented with doubling my dose of Calmovil (2 per day instead of 1). I have noticed some additional benefit from the double dose, but the single dose is very effective.

2 months:
Still under control. I have stayed with 1 capsule per day for maintenance. But just recently I felt some minor symptoms so I upped my dose to 2 per day and that took care of it. The recent symptoms are no doubt from diarrhea I have had from heavy magnesium supplementation. Too much magnesium upsets the digestional tract. At this point I am content to call Calmovil effective hemorrhoid maintenance. Maybe in time it will become a cure for me. But maintenance will do just fine.

4 months:
Still works great. Still taking 2 capsules per day instead of the recommended 1.

6 months:
Still works. Currently at 1 capsule per day. I have been doing other stuff for my digestive system which has helped the inflammation such that I no longer need 2 per day. That includes HCl supplements, digestive enzymes, probiotics, and more recently a candida cleanse. Food for thought... look to your entire digestive system as a root cause for hemorrhoids. Calmovil is very effective at relieving symptoms but for me it has not been a cure (meaning I need to keep taking it). I hope to find a cure in this other digestive stuff I have been doing, but it's too soon to report results or make specific product recommendations. For a future update...

8 months:
Well I think I found a cure for my hemorrhoids, but you're not gonna like it. I have been doing a raw food diet. Nothing processed, nothing cooked. Think "fresh off the vine" kind of raw. And more recently I have been juicing my raw foods with a Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer, White. Since I started this diet I have had no hemorrhoids, and I no longer have to take Calmovil. So in my own experience I would say that Calmovil works great if you aren't willing to radically change your diet. But curing hemorrhoids requires those radical changes.

My verdict is still the same... Calmovil is the best hemorrhoid treatment I have ever used. Just understand that it's not a cure... you have to keep taking it. I think of it like Aleve for my butt. It gets rid of the inflammation and shrinks the hemorrhoids down to nothing.

21 months:
I stopped taking Calmovil for a while as I didn't need it anymore. But just recently I had the worst constipation of my life. It took 30 minutes to pass a very large bowel movement. My hemorrhoids resurfaced after that and were seriously pissed off. I still had my Calmovil in the cabinet so I did 2 per day to treat this acute flare up. I didn't get any relief until about day 10. The flare up was so bad that it took much longer for relief than my initial experience, but it still worked and it is keeping the hemorrhoids in check now that they are under control again. I also tried something new during this flare up... baking soda and sea salt enemas. I found that this kind of enema greatly soothes and strengthens the skin of the anus, but it didn't reduce the hemorrhoids at all. Calmovil reduces, the enema soothes.

After using the 30 capsules in the bottle per the directions, I have not seen my condition improved at all.

I am 37 years old and have been strugling with my hemroids since my daughter was born, 11 years ago.

I have tried lots of products but calmovil is definitely my favorite. This Sunday I got another flareup, and had a horseback riding lesson scheduled for this week, so I panicked and ordered Calmovil right away.

It arrived Tuesday and I took it right away, next day I could feel the pressure and swelling subsided and Thursday morning I had no symptoms at all.

This stuff is not cheap, but it works like no other product I've tried. I also got the Calmovil Hemorrhoid Cooling Cream and was applying it every morning and evening.

Hemmoriods are horrible and it is hard to find a product which actually works. These pills not only cured my outbreak within the week they can also be occasionally taken to prevent further outbreaks. This product actually works!

I take 1 daily. It helped within days to reduce discomfort without any side effects. I have and will continue to recommend it.

This stuff is awesome! The pain was so bad I could barely walk but in one day I was feeling relief. Every day was an improvement. I took these pills for 13 days and by then there was no sign that I ever had hemorroids. Best of all, it's a natural product, Thanks!

I know its a little hard to believe a little herbal pill can help when you have those "little" problems. Calmovil really helps. The sooner you start taking them the better.

Did not notice any difference. As long as you eat right and enough vegetables you should be fine. Do not forget to drink lots of water.

Didn't work at all and gave me terrible cramps. I was pretty dissapointed because I had held out hope it would make a difference.
