  • I never did no. Has your dr said this was ok?

  • Varicose veins around your vuvla are not too common in pregnancy, but they do happen. They can get big and/or painful too.

    This has never happened to me, and I'm too round to even be able to see down there anymore lol.
    But it is something that you should mention to your doctor....its not life-threatening and won't harm your pregnancy or anything, but its wise to make your doctor aware of it anyways.

  • I don't have them down there but I do have them on my tummy. Like they said I'd just mention it to your dr.

  • I saw some support panty hose type things for this online. I would check with your doctor, but I think they do have some stuff to try to reduce it.
