Could it be a DVT?
I've been having an aching pain behind my knee for about a week now. I'm a 22 year old female that does take birth control, for about 7 years now. I'm mildly active but am often at a desk studying. I looked on the back of my knee and noticed there was a single vein that was about an inch long and very blue. It's not a spider vein but could possible be a forming varicose vein or could this dark blue vein be a sign of DVT?

Is your leg swollen, painful, different color? Does pain change with elevation, activity. From what you have written it does not sound like DVT, but then again it's a very serious issue that can cause lung embolism or heart failure so it's best to get it checked out if you suspect it.
