Pregnant women are contraindicated many methods of treatment of varicose veins, in particular, the admission of most drugs, as well as sclerotherapy and surgery. Therefore, if you are seriously thinking about how to give birth to a child, pre-prolecia disease. For this we turn to considering no more than three or four months before the planned pregnancy.
If you already are expecting a baby, your actions should be aimed at, to prevent stagnation of blood in the legs and improving its outflow. Here the main methods are physical activity (gymnastics, Hiking), and the so-called compression therapy. Compression treatment is performed by wearing elastic stockings or foot-binding bandages. Elastic stockings can be of different lengths: knee length (knee) or above. The latter is preferable, as they provide compression across the length of the legs.
From compression hosiery there are drawbacks: after a long wear and a few washes it may lose its properties. So, in a sense, foot binding is preferable to wear special stockings or knee socks. Bandage the legs according to certain rules, starting with the foot, the first bandage – clockwise, the second – against. To apply elastic bandages, as well as to wear compression stockings, should be in the morning, lying in bed. At night they are removed.
From phlebotrophic drugs to receive during pregnancy is allowed only "Venoruton" (contraindicated in the first trimester!) and "Detralex". The admission of the latter should be discontinued after delivery in case if you are breast-feeding. Drugs "Aescusan", "Endotelon", "Doxium" is contraindicated to pregnant women!
The reception "Venoruton" and "Detralex" should be done only after consulting the doctor from whom you occur during pregnancy. In any case, don't start it on their own initiative. The same prohibition applies to other drugs traditionally used to treat varicose veins: normalizing blood clotting, anti-inflammatory and other pregnant women they are appointed only on strict conditions.
The use of local funds impact (gels and ointments – for example, "Assawin-gel", "Lioton" and others) pregnant is often allowed, as they do not penetrate into the bloodstream and do not cause harm to the fetus. These funds bring a good effect in combination with compression treatment, however, before their application still consult with a specialist.
Try to avoid a big weight gain – usually, it provokes the development of varicose veins during pregnancy. Follow the diet and drinking regime, and for regular bowel movement: constipation is a frequent cause of varicose veins. Enrich the menu with foods that contain fiber – fruits, vegetables. Do not take any laxatives without the advice of a doctor, many of them are contraindicated for pregnant women.
