Hi ladies. I was wondering if anyone has ever had "vulvar varicosities" Im going to call my doctor on monday but thats a few days away and i figured id learn what i can from anyone who has had them. Thanks

Is it like varicose veins but in your vulvar? If so my neihghor had this with her second pregnancy and she said other than looking horrible it was painless and went away before she even left the hospital.

I had them with my last two pregnancies. When I called my ob he said there was really nothing that you could do about them. I did find that a nice warm bath helped relieve some pain as did sitting on an icepack covered with a towel. Like SonyaM mentioned, mine were gone by the time I left the hospital.

i dont know if i have them or not.....i have alot of pressure and pain kinda like right below my pubic bone on the left and i just so happened to look (not that i can see it anymore over this belly) But there is kinda a bulge there, it doesnt hurt to touch but if i push on it it hurts like a bruise. If i am sitting or laying down it doesnt hurt at all, but if i stand up its alot of pressure and feels like a bruise....Does this sound like it Rabbits?

This sounds a lot like something I experienced in the first weeks after labor. I thought it was a varicosity, but it was actually a hematoma near a small tear I had up the front. Basically, the blood just kind of pooled there, causing swelling and discomfort. It went away on its own after about four weeks. My midwife told me to limit time on my feet and apply ice to it several times a day.

thanks for the imput but these you get while you are pregnant. Hemoatomas after delivery are pretty common, my girlfriend had a huge one after she had her son
