Anyone suffer from vericose veins(vulvular and legs) during pregnancy and after?

Just wondering how bad they were, what your symptoms were, and if they went away or to what degree. Thanks!

  • I never did but my mom had them horribly. They were REALLY bad (like the veins we the size of a thin straw). They were painful and she had to have special socks and eventually had to have them stripped.

  • Interesting. Was this because of pregnancies(how many) and when did she eventually get them fixed?
