Do pregnancy-related varicose veins go away after the baby is born?
I’m 37 y/o and 32 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy. I have a varicose vein running from the top of my right thigh, down past my knee, and it seems to have leaked over my lower leg. The vein is purple and bulgy at the top, then blue and bulgy. There is a lot of dark purple discoloration between my knee and ankle. It is also itchy, tingly, and painful to touch. I’ve spoken to doctors and midwives who seem to pass it off as a varicose vein and said it should go away when the baby is born.
