Causes of varicose veins in pregnant women:

  • Causes of varicose veins - cause venous valvulopathy and weak venous wall, which is often hereditary.
  • Available capillary mesh, we call them "asterisks", before pregnancy or varicose veins.
  • A significant body mass set for a short time or overweight. That is also a frequent fact during pregnancy.
  • Multifedual Pregnancy.
  • Sluggish, sedentary lifestyle;long standing on the legs.
  • Long or frequent sun exposure.
  • The longer the period of pregnancy, the higher the risk of developing varicose veins. Naturally, in the case of repeated pregnancies, the risk also increases.
  • During pregnancy, the uterus increases in size and begins to squeeze the veins, preventing the natural outflow of venous blood from the legs. Excess weight or multiple pregnancy create a heavy load on the veins located deep in the leg, which leads to the expansion or swelling of the veins are located on the surface of the leg. Moreover, they can be stretched both in length and width.

  • Edema of the legs in the evening, in more severe cases, appearance by the court( most often at night time).
  • Change in the condition of veins on the legs, the appearance of a vein pattern;protrusion of veinsAs the disease progresses, increasing the protrusion up and down from the initially appeared area.
  • These symptoms may be normal, but can also be the first signs of the disease.
