Varicose Veins

Did you know that approximately 3.79 million babies are born annually in the United States? While pregnancy is a joyous occasion, a range of medical complications can befall on even the healthiest of pregnant women—both before and during birth. With hormonal and bodily changes comes the risk of developing vein diseases as well. Let’s take a brief look at what happens to the veins during pregnancy and what pregnant women should do after postpartum recovery.

Unsightly and uncomfortable, varicose veins are nothing short of a nuisance. The swollen, twisted, and blue veins are hard to cover up and even harder to live with if one takes into account the range of debilitating symptoms that are associated with this vein disease. Thankfully, radiofrequency ablation has become one of the most effective ways to help individuals relieve symptoms of varicose veins, without leaving any cosmetic scars behind. Let’s take a look at what radiofrequency ablation is, and what it does.

Poor blood circulation is not a disease; it’s a symptom of other underlying health issues. Several health conditions can lead to poor blood circulation, such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, and arterial problems. Other factors also affect circulation, such as poor diet and an inactive lifestyle. According to a study, sitting or being on your feet for more than eight hours a day can have a significant impact on your circulation.

When you’re pregnant, the volume of blood increases and blood flow from your legs to the pelvis slows down. The mismatch between the flow of blood and the volume of blood increases pressure in the vein which leads to the formation of varicose veins.

Varicose vein are most commonly found in the legs but in pregnant women, they appear in the vaginal area as well as the buttocks.
