Pregnancy related varicose veins?

Im 24, in my third pregnancy, and have begun getting the "spider veins" on my thighs since my first pregnancy. They are quite unsightly and feel that my legs dont fit my age!! Any hope to get rid of these? Who would I speak with about this? Any help is much appreciated :)

This is a common issue and most commonly treatable by simple sclerotherapy. A thorough evaluation should be performed first to rule out larger vessel disease. I would recommend going to www.phlebology.org to find a local physician with qualifications.

I had the same problem. I noticed that after giving birth to my fifth child I developed thick painful varicose veins on both legs. I felt embarrassed because as women we are expected to look beautiful all of the time. I did some research online and I came across USA Vein Clinics. They were able to answer all of my questions. I am usually very careful about having any procedure done but they made me feel safe throughout the whole process. I highly recommend them if you want a permanent solution to your varicose veins.
