“I Developed a New Varicose Vein with every Pregnancy!”

There are a numbers of changes that occur during pregnancy that increase your risk of developing varicose and spider veins.

Changes begin early in pregnancy before others can tell you are expecting. Hormonal changes, increased blood volume, pressure on the superficial veins by the growing baby and relaxation of the venous muscles all serve to increase the risk of vein disease.

Healthy leg principles are important during pregnancy and can prevent the development of varicose veins.

These principles include:

  • Regular exercise
  • Elevation of your legs when resting
  • Healthy weight management
  • Use of graduated compression hose from early in pregnancy
  • Avoiding high heels except for special occasions

 

Despite these measures you noticed a few spider or varicose veins with your first pregnancy that disappeared after a few months. After your second pregnancy some of them remained and after your third pregnancy your veins were really bad.

These veins are not only unsightly that can be painful. It takes about 12 weeks after delivery for your body to return to a normal state. The veins that persist after this time only get worse with time. Left untreated they can crimp your comfort and style and lead to chronic vein disease.

The problem is that vein disease is a chronic, progressive health concern and embarrassing, too. Many of you tell me that you don’t own a pair of shorts and are too self-conscious to wear a short skirt or swimsuit.

The good news is that there are new minimally invasive procedures for correction of varicose and spider veins. Contact us online or call (800) 764-3280 to begin you journey to healthy legs for life. You don’t have to suffer with those pregnancy related varicose and spider veins any longer.
