When will bleeding stop after hemorrhoid sclerotherapy treatments?

Hi I have been diagnosed with two small internal hemorrhoids that bleed after I have a bowel movement. They stain the toilet paper. My proctologist started me on escleropathy shots. I have received the first session 5 days ago but bleeding persists sometimes when I strain a bit. I have been told it can take a couple of sessions to complete the treatment. My question is when should the bleeding stop? Thank you very much

Gastroeneterologist and General Surgeons Do Sclerotherapy on Hemorrhoids

GI doctors and general surgeons perform sclerotherapy for hemorrhoids, not vein specialists or cosmetic surgeons.
