    Unhappy varicose veins during pregnancy?

    I had varicose veins in the last 4 months of my pregnancy and still have them!
    I've visited the doctor and he's told me I need to wear compression socks and they haven't resolved the issue. anyone experienced something similar? how do I get rid of them??

    How old is your baby now? It does take some time for the varicose veins to disappear. I have found that Barley Greens from the health food store helpful both in pregnancy and after the birth. I also did a quick google on natural therapies and found this link http://www.naturaltherapypages.com.a...Varicose_Veins I hope it helps.
