    Vulvar Varicosities

    Vulvar Varicosities

    My wife recently learned that she suffers from this condition. Has anyone else had it? Do those compressive undergarments really work or are they a waste of money?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The following is an illustration to help provide a visual reference of what vulvar varicosities are and why they're a serious problem to a pregnant woman (or any woman for that matter).
