Pregnancy and Post-Pregnancy Varicose Veins
Sclerotherapy is used to treat spider and varicose veins in different locations, including the vaginal area. Vular/perineal varicose veins occur in one out of four women during pregnancy and perineal (post-pregnancy period). The abnormal pressure on the pelvic area can instigate the high-pressure backflow of blood into the lower pelvic and vulvar veins. In some cases, the inflamed vulvar veins create secondary varicose veins in the thighs or legs, and in more extreme causes, it can cause pain during intercourse.
Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins
Because the vaginal area is a highly personal area, many women suffer in silence. There are physicians out there who address this issue, though, and who operate in the strictest confidence.
Common Vulvar/Perineal Sclerotherapy Questions
What are the symptoms of vulvar varicose veins?
The most common symptoms of vulvar varicose veins are swelling and pressure in the vulva area, twisted or swollen veins on the upper thighs and possible pain during intercourse.
Will sclerotherapy work for me?
Sclerotherapy is beneficial for the treatment of most veins. Spider veins respond within three to six weeks, and larger varicose veins shrink in three to four months. Additional injections may be needed.
Will medical insurance cover sclerotherapy?
Whether or not your insurance will cover the procedure depends upon why you are seeking it and your medical history. Medical insurance may cover sclerotherapy if your varicose veins are causing medical issues like pain or chronic swelling. If you seek sclerotherapy for cosmetic reasons, most insurance carriers will not provide coverage.
