A 34-year-old female asked:
I have very pale skin, and my greater saphenous vein has always been prominent.After my second baby, it now bulges a bit. Is this a varicose vein?

See vein specialist.: There is a high association of varicose veins with pregnancies. If your vein is bulging it most likely is a varicose vein due to saphenous vein reflux. You should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation including a venous reflux ultrasound.
