A 38-year-old female asked:
How effective are compression stockings at preventing DVT? Is there a chance that blood would just pool in the thighs instead of in the calves?

Thigh high: Actually Amanda there are thigh hi compression stockings to prevent that. but for DVT talk to your doctor about anticoagulants. DVTs can cause bad things. Also BCP pills can make them worse. good luck
