Varicose Vein Home Treatments -2 answers
I’m 37 y/o and 32 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy. I have a varicose vein running from the top of my right thigh, down past my knee, and it seems to have leaked over my lower leg.

I’ve spoken to doctors and midwives who seem to pass it off as a varicose vein and said it should go away when the baby is born.
