The problem of varicose veins can sometimes be hereditary and can be manifested early. Yes, it can be worsen if the the pregnant woman may not be very careful; she may not carry a heavy objects or standing up, or sitting down most of the time.

There are available medications for your problem about varicose veins. If the affected veins are the small ones only, you may use creams. If it is moderate use tablets and if it is severe then it is needed an operation.

Yes, it will probably be worsen when you will get pregnant because varicose veins is one of the most common complications during pregnancy that you will be experiencing more if your varicose veins will not be treated as soon as possible.

Yes, it is true. Varicose veins are a result of defective valves in the lower extremities. The blood that goes down to the feet to supply them with oxygen and also to bring back the carbon dioxide, which is a waste product of our body. The valves in the veins are the support that will push the blood up and not let it stay down in your legs.Since the blood flow is going up against gravity, when these valves are defective, the veins become prominent and swollen.
