Varicose Veins: — a common venous circulation Problem
The condition of varicose veins usually results from valve problems in the veins of the legs. If one or more valves do not close properly, the veins carry blood to the leg rather than to the heart. As blood accumulates, abnormal pressures dilate the superficial veins, causing them to protrude and become visible.
Causes of Varicose Veins:
1. Commonly hereditary and occurs more commonly in women than men.
2. Varicose veins are more prevalent in today’s society because more and more people work almost without walking, which causes them to be insufficiently pumped by the leg muscles.
Varicose Veins during Pregnancy:
Women often develop varicose veins during pregnancy. The main reason is the hormonal changes in the body of the woman. There are high levels of progesterone that relax the blood vessels. This problem is exacerbated by enlargement of the matrix that compresses the main veins that cross the pelvis, creating pressure in the veins of the legs. Varicose veins may disappear after pregnancy. However, after each subsequent pregnancy, varicose veins are more common and become more visible.
