AM I MORE LIKELY TO GET VARICOSE VEINS WHEN PREGNANT?

Yes. A lot of women find that the varicose veins appear for the first time during their pregnancy. Pregnancy doesn’t cause the varicose veins it just brings forward the time when you would develop them. The people that develop varicose veins during their pregnancy have an underlying genetic problem with their valves. The pressure of the growing baby on the valves in the pelvis puts pressure on the veins in the legs which combined with the valve failure brings out the varicose veins.
