Unfortunately, vein conditions and pregnancy can often go hand-in-hand. Some women develop varicose veins when they become pregnant. Pregnancy not only increases blood volume in your body, but also slows down the blood flow from your legs to your pelvis. Even though the circulatory pattern is designed to support the developing fetus, this decreased blood flow can result in an unfortunate side effect, known as varicose veins.

This vein condition may get worse during late pregnancy, specifically when your uterus puts greater pressure in your leg veins. Generally, varicose veins that progress during pregnancy are recovered without any medical treatment within 3 months to 1 year after delivery.
