help! painful, swollen vericose veins... on my yoni! :(

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Yep, you read right. I didn't even know this was a thing till I looked it up.

 

My yoni is swollen and painful and I've been having to put ice packs on it periodically for the past few days. When I am standing and walking alot it seems to flare up and it just seems to be getting worse as I get closer to my due date.

 

Anyone been through this? What can I do to make this dreadful condition go away??? Or get lasting relief? 

 

I'm starting to get REALLY scared of what this may mean for the upcoming birth. More pain? Tearing with lots of bleeding??? Ugh... I'm normally not scared at all of natural birth but this is doing my head in, and fear is not good for me. greensad.gif Is there anything I can do to not have this affect the natural vaginal birth I am planning? 

 

Any help and advice is much appreciated.

In my last pregnancy I had a nice one on my left lip area. F-in lovely. Nice midwife assisted birth no tears, no drugs, only a few pushes. Relax. Ugly, hot, itchy, uncomfortable but its on not in your yoni wink1.gif

Comfy shoes and compression hose for vericose veins on my vulva? Or are you talking about legs here? I don't have any problems with them on my legs.

I have a mild case of this at 12 weeks, and from some reading I did a couple weeks ago once I figured out what it was, it seemed pretty reassuring that it won't affect the birth at all.

Anyone know if it is safe to use horse chestnut cream on my vulva (while pregnant)?

post #7 of 8

I don't know about the horse chestnut cream, but my sister had painful bulging varicose veins in her vaginal and labial area, and she didn't have a problem giving birth. They did cause her pain and discomfort in other ways, though, and she also had terrible ones in her legs, and I think that was what caused her the most pain while pregnant.

I got a script for two that go to my belly. Not sure how V-veins work but yep.
