Varicose Veins and Pregnancy

by | Jun 30, 2021 | Medical

There are many risk factors for varicose veins and one of them is pregnancy. Women undergo significant physiological changes with pregnancy. Increased blood volume and hormonal changes cause the veins to dilate. In addition, a gravid uterus exerts downward pressure on the leg veins. Many women can develop bulging varicose veins during their pregnancy. Fortunately, these may regress once the baby is delivered. However in some women, they may remain and unfortunately, may worsen with subsequent pregnancies. This can cause leg pain, aching, cramping, fatigue, and restless legs. Fortunately, the treatment for varicose veins is very effective and minimally invasive.
Harvard and Stanford trained, double board certified vascular surgeon, Dr. Larisse Lee focuses on the most up to date techniques to get the results you want. Our state of the art facility offers minimally invasive procedures with exceptional results.
