I'm just wondering if anybody has experienced really bad varicose veins caused from pregnancy? I've had 2 kids, I'm 24 and my legs are now an entire roadmap of buldgy blue veins and purple spider veins. I've just started sclerotherapy treatments...

Every 4-6 weeks for the next 4 months I'm going to a vein clinic, they inject some of the big veins with a medicated saline solution (about 8 needles each leg per treatment) and I have prescription support hose that have to be worn every day until treatments are done in the summer. I'm not really sure what to expect with the end results though...they say they the veins die off, but theres some that they can't treat. My ankle is all discolored and full of little veins from blood pooling, and I'm not really sure what to do about it, I didn't find my doctor all that helpful.

Hi Melanie, Yes, I have experience them. What do the treatments do that you're getting?
