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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Absolutely not: The most common age group is 30-60, but I have treated patients from age 17-93.

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
