Can You Give Birth Normally When Suffering From Vulvar Varicose Veins?
I want nnySy to be 36 weeks pregnant, I have vaginal varicose. The right side is out and when the chapter has a small lump, if the left side is not enough.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The protrusion of blood vessels around the vaginal lips is called vulvar varicose veins. Vulvar varicose veins occur most often during pregnancy due to the influence of hormonal changes during pregnancy which cause dilation of blood vessels in the vulva area and also increased pooling (blood collection) in the lower body area (legs, pelvis, and also in the vulva area). Generally this condition begins to appear in the second trimester or third trimester of pregnancy.
The presence of vulvar varicose does not cause you to be able to give birth normally through the vagina. It is true that there is a risk of protruding blood vessels that can rupture during labor, but generally this does not cause significant bleeding during labor (bleeding from rupture of varicose veins will not be too much), but there are no other dangerous complications that will occur if you want to give birth by birth normal with varicose veins in your vulva. However, you need to know that there are many other conditions that cause a woman to be unable to give birth normally. Sometimes in the middle of a normal delivery it can be recommended to do a cesarean section if necessary. Make sure you discuss your delivery plan with the obstetrician who treats you to clearly know the condition of your pregnancy and the possibility of a normal delivery.
Varicose veins that appear during this pregnancy will usually disappear by themselves after you give birth. Make sure that for the rest of your pregnancy you maintain your weight so that you do not gain excessively. If you feel certain symptoms that make you uncomfortable due to the presence of this vulvar varicose, you can try to compress the area of your vulva with a cold compress, and prop up your hip and buttocks area with a pillow when you lie down.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
