Spider Veins During Pregnancy?
So many women have asked us about spider vein options during pregnancy. Many women who have experienced pregnancy can attest firsthand that while spider veins are certainly a condition that is painful, they also seems to get worse as you get closer to term. The good news is that these surface veins aren’t normally a cause of more serious medical issues, even though symptoms associated with spider veins (such as itching and aching) may be uncomfortable. It is important to understand that hormones associated with pregnancy (such as progesterone and estrogen) can cause veins that were previously painless to become a source of discontent. Although these hormone levels change as a result of pregnancy, they also affect the vascular system of many women in Utah. Veins can then usually become swollen and uncomfortable.
Of course, we don’t recommend treatment for spider veins during pregnancy, since there are possible potential risks to the unborn baby due to any medication associated with pre and post treatment. In fact, the most optimal thing that you can do during pregnancy is to utilize Utah veins support hose to be worn as high as the knee or thigh area depending on where the spider veins are located. These compression-style Utah vein stockings will add compression to these small veins, which in turn will help eliminate discomfort. Of course, once you arrive to term and deliver your baby, progesterone and estrogen levels will quickly recede and hence, many of your painful veins should as well. Nevertheless, spider veins rarely disappear for good. After pregnancy is the ideal time to permanently treat spider veins. Davis Vein Center has effective and painless Utah vein options available that can help get rid of spider veins. Instead of waiting until you are finished having your family, the best practice is to treat spider veins in between pregnancy. Doing this will ensure that your condition does not worsen.
