Each year, many of the women who visit my Albuquerque vein clinic for vein consultations are either actively trying to conceive or they know they would still like to have more children in the future. They often inquire as to whether there is any reason they should wait until after they are finished having children to seek treatment for their varicose veins.
Although pregnancy is one of the leading causes of varicose veins, there is no reason to continue suffering with the symptoms through additional pregnancies.
Actually, pursuing treatment prior to any future pregnancies is the best scenario because it will make your next pregnancy more tolerable if you are symptomatic (pain, swelling, etc.). Also, in most cases, it will prevent the progression of the vein problems you might otherwise experience if you should avoid treatment until you feel you are finished having children.
It is possible that additional varicose veins could form after subsequent pregnancies, but if that does occur, future treatment would be simpler, while still saving you years of unnecessary pain and symptoms.
