Varicose Veins (Definition)

Varicose veins are dilated, elongated, winding, tortuous veins that are usually found in the legs but can affect different parts of the body. Normal veins usually have valves that prevent the backflow of blood and help resist gravity while blood moves back to te heart. Varicose veins have dysfunctional valves so blood moves forward and back which causes the enlarged vessels. These varicose veins can be painful. Often the pain worsens after standing for a ...Read more

If I have varicose veins in my legs, is there a chance it will spread to my vulva?

If I have varicose veins in my legs, is there a chance it will spread to my vulva?

Minimal: Varicose veins in the legs are due to an underlying vein flow problem in the leg itself, and although associated varicosities can spread proximally, this is very rare. Vulvar or labial varicosities generally arise from a pelvic source, and are most commonly seen in pregnancy, where they can become highly symptomatic, but can be treated very simply, to resolve pain, by serial injection treatments. ...Read more

They may cause pain including pain with intercourse. You may have pelvic venous congestion causing these veins. If you have significant pain then get evaluated for ovarian vein reflux. Libido is likely unrelated to veins. ...Read more

VV and pregnancy: Varicose veins in the legs and vaginal varicose veins are very common during pregnancy. These veins enlarge due to the pressure of the uterus on the intra abdominal veins causing the leg veins to enlarge. Local care for vaginal veins with wet warm compresses may help. If these is a clotted painful vein, it can be drained under local anesthesia. See a vein specialist. ...Read more

Could my possible foot injury have aggravated the varicose veins and caused phlebitis?

Could my possible foot injury have aggravated the varicose veins and caused phlebitis?

Possibly: As dr. Berg said, if it is on the same side, maybe. However, if you aren't even sure that you have injured your foot, it seems less likely. An injury can certainly cause phlebitis, but it is usually more direct and easy to connect. You can certainly get phlebitis simply because you have varicose veins. The most important thing that you need is an unltrasound and then treatment. ...Read more

Do varicose veins only surface during menopause?

Absolutely not: The most common age group is 30-60, but I have treated patients from age 17-93. Most common causes of varicose veins are family history or genetics, pregnancy, trauma, occupations or activities with prolonged standing or sitting, and hormonal influences, which is where menopause would play a role. ...Read more

Why do varicose veins throb during menopause?

Pressure in Veins: The throbbing is most likely from worsening venous insufficiency (leaky valves in veins) and not necessarily related to menopause itself. Below-knee compression socks are a good way to start controlling the pain. ...Read more

Why do my varicose veins throb during my menstrual cycle?

Why do my varicose veins throb during my menstrual cycle?

Hormones play a role: Female hormones such as estrogen fluctuate in our menstral cycle and affect the "stretchiness" of our veins. This in turn causes the veins to enlarge which makes them throb. Some women will report similar symptoms on hormone therapy and during pregnancy, when our estrogen levels tend to fluctuate. If you have significant symptoms, consider wearing compression stockings and see a vein specialist. ...Read more
