veins due to contraceptive pills?
it's been 4 weeks since I started using contraceptive pills (althea). then I noticed that veins in my legs started to show up. Is it because of the pill? what are the possible remedies? thanks .

Although there are clearly hormonal effects (largely progesterone) on leg veins, a change over four weeks seems odd. Progesterone is responsible for uterine relaxation during pregnancy and is thought to also affect leg veins in a similar fashion.
