    Default Help! Vulval variscosity?


    I have developed a vulval variscosity and have been told by my ob that although they can be painful it wont affect anything else to do with the baby. My mother is a miswife and has told me they can rupture, with a greater chance of this happening at delivery. has anyone else had any experiences with this?

    Hi Peta,

    Welcome to the wonderful world of vulval varicose veins Not fun really. This is my fourth pregnancy and fourth experience of having one. Not impressed! I have laboured naturally with three of my children and haven't had a problem. My ob is aware of it and hasn't told me about it's potential to rupture, which I imagine has happened but probably in extreme cases where there is excessive weakening of the vessel. I know of others also with this condition who also haven't had any probs in labour. Just during the pregnancy...ouch!

    Hope you feel relieved....
