The top risk factors for developing vein disease include age, gender, weight, lifestyle and…pregnancy? It may come as a surprise to many, but up to a third of pregnant women in their first pregnancy develop venous insufficiency, the venous condition responsible for varicose veins and poor circulation. And the risk increases with each pregnancy thereafter. Read on to learn what else our vein expert in Hamilton County has to say about vein disease and pregnancy.
Why is pregnancy a risk factor for vein disease?
The amount of blood within the veins increases during pregnancy. This alone can put stress on the vein walls and lead to varicose veins, but there’s more. The weight from a developing baby puts pressure on the largest vein in the body: the vena cava. The vena cava is responsible for distributing blood to all the other veins in your body, so if problems arise in the main vein, there can be a domino effect on other veins in the legs and ankles.
Another contributing factor to vein disease in women is fluctuating hormones. This can come from taking birth control pills, the menstrual cycle, puberty, menopause, and pregnancy. Hormonal changes affect the structural strength of the vein walls and can lead to weak vein pump and weak vein walls.
A large percentage of women do see improvements in varicose veins and bothersome symptoms within 3 months after giving birth. While you may notice a visible improvement, vein damage is unfortunately permanent and may worsen over time. The only way to improve vein disease itself is with varicose vein treatment in New Jersey.
Although it isn’t considered safe to undergo a venous procedure such as vein laser surgery in Hamilton County while pregnant, we encourage you to get regular moderate exercise if you’re otherwise healthy. This will help increase circulation and maintain a healthy body during pregnancy.
