Sclerotherapy should not be performed during pregnancy. The ultrasound is not harmful to the fetus, but the sclerosant solution may be. Wait till after you deliver and are done breastfeeding.

The ultrasound is not harmful to the baby period. Besides the ultrasound waves are sent to the legs not the uterus. However, I would not recommend the procedure to a pregnant women since the sclerosant drug could be partially absorbed and could be potentially dangerous to the fetus.

No, the ultrasound is not harmful to the unborn fetus, although I would not recommend elective ultrasound guided injection sclerotherapy during pregnancy. I would reserve elective vein treatments during pregnancy only to injection of bleeding varicose or spider veins only after failure of conservative compression therapy.

There is no evidence to show that ultrasound is dangerous to a fetus. In fact, it is often done by obstetricians to follow the developing fetus. Sclerotherapy should not be done during pregnancy. This is an elective procedure and there is no need to take any unnecessary risks for the mom or fetus.
