    Default Spider veins

    Any one who has had spider veins on the legs during pregnancy, did they disappear after birth?

    Ive noticed i have them down the back of one of my legs,from my knee to my ankle, ive never had them before, not even with my last 2 pregnancies, and i think they look horrible, i look like ive got bad bruises on the leg.

    hey, I can recommend skin doctors spider veins creme. Varicose veins don't go away though. I had to have 2 removed after pregnancy.

    I had a nasty looking patch of spider veins on the inside of my thigh, they took a few weeks to go away, but they eventually all went. I had varicose veins on my legs which subsided but didn't completely go. I also has vulval varices which went away almost straight after DS2 was born.

    The removing? Yes it is but has to be done so nothing I could do about it.

    I got spider veins on the back of my calves when pregnant with DS3 (never happened with the other two) and they have faded but not gone completely They are horrible. Like you said, looks like bruises over the back of my legs.
