In brief: Another site
Evlt should take care of the major vein associated with the vv, and there is a 1-2% recanalization rate where the vein opens up again with time, and this can be treated.
New vv can pop up in different areas due to incompetent accessory veins, and perforator veins, especially if risk factors are present: heredity, multiple pregnancies, obesity, lifestyle (prolonged sitting/standing).

The vein treated will not return,but pregnancy may cause other varicose veins Use of maternity compression pantyhose is helpful as they uplift the lower abdominal cavity and reduce pressure on your legs,this helps prevent possible valve damage

If you have endovenous laser treatment and then get pregnant, you might get new varicose veins but the ones that were treated should be gone for good.
