    Unhappy Vulval varicose veins

    I've just found out I have vulval varicose veins - never even new such a thing existed! Has anyone else had these? Did you get support undies to help with the preassure/ pain? Did they go away after birth?

    I'm only 23 weeks, so have a long way to go and my middy seems to think they will probably only get worse as bub gets bigger. Looks like my Christmas present might be a very expensive pair of SRC shorts

    Default Re: Vulval varicose veins

    I have these also.
    I use witch hazel. I got from the chemist.
    After cleaning the area put some on a cotton ball and apply to effected area. I do this 3 times a day. You can also put some on a pad and freeze. Use with tight undies. Cold helps heaps.
    Only took a day to notice a huge difference.
    Hope you find something that helps.

    I had these in later pregnancy with DD2. Not very pleasant.
    Mine went away straight after giving birth.
    I didn't wear support shorts, but could imagine they might help.

    Thanks for the replies.

    DueInAugust - does the witch hazel help reduce the swelling? I might have to give that a go.

    Yes it does and stops the pain and itch straight away if used on a cold cloth instead of cotton balls.
    I found anything cold really helps for the mean time until you can get to a chemist.
