Varicose Vein Sneaky Pregnancy Symptoms

Pregnancy is one of the best surprises a woman will receive in her life, whether expected or unexpected. Finding out you have symptoms of pregnancy that you’ve never even thought you’d suffer from, however, is not one of the best surprises.

Everyone talks about nausea, exhaustion, and general aches and pains associated with the way a woman’s body is affected during pregnancy – but not many people talk about veins.

Varicose Veins Vs Spider Veins

Spider Veins Pregnancy

Believe it or not, varicose veins, unfortunately, go hand-in-hand with pregnancy. In the same way, some women may be prone to stretch marks or cellulite throughout the course of their pregnancy, 10-20% of women will experience the appearance of varicose veins. Even if her legs had been the picture of perfection before the baby, the extra pressure put on a woman’s body during pregnancy can contribute to these newfound blue, purple, and red-colored veins.

How does Varicose Vein appear during Pregnancy?

“During pregnancy, your blood volume increases, while the rate at which blood flows from your legs to your pelvis decreases. This puts pressure on the veins, which can cause varicose veins. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that commonly occur in the legs, although during pregnancy they can also appear on the buttocks and vaginal area,” as reported by

While some women find that the appearance of their pregnancy varicose veins disappear post-pregnancy, many women will find that the new addition to their bodies that compliments the arrival of their new addition are here to stay – for good.

Our recommended methods for treating varicose veins from pregnancy include:

Foam Sclerotherapy

Ideal for medium, large veins or less obtrusive veins, foam sclerotherapy is a safe and effective vein removal technique. During traditional sclerotherapy, a medicated solution is injected directly into the affected veins. When injected as a foam rather than a liquid, the solution can target some of the larger, underlying varicose veins that cannot typically be treated with sclerotherapy.

Vein Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation, or vein ablation as it’s commonly called, uses a laser or light energy to cauterize and close varicose veins and venous insufficiency in the legs. Endovenous laser ablation involves inserting a very thin laser fiber through the affected vein via a needle hole and has a 99% success rate in treating large varicose veins.

Endovenous laser ablationFor varicose veins that are more pronounced and appear to be bulging from the skin, our state-of-the-art vein removal facility offers surgical options as well.
