SHOULD I HAVE MY VARICOSE VEINS TREATED WHEN PREGNANT?

This is a difficult one as a long of patients that are pregnant that get varicose veins suffer quite badly from them and it would be nice if we could offer treatment to them during the pregnancy. The problem is that there are risks associated with doing anything to someone whilst they are pregnant and the last thing you want to do is risk the baby.
I think the risk is probably absolutely minimal but it will never become ethically possible to treat patients and check that prior to bringing it into general usage. So unfortunately if you develop them while you’re pregnant you will have to wait until the pregnancy is over until you can have treatment.
