For most women the main and usual treatment for the varicose veins would be under going sclerotherapy - The doctor injects a solution into the vein that causes the vein walls to swell, stick together, and seal shut. The blood then finds new ways and vein routes through healthy veins.
Each injection covers about one inch of the vein, so the procedure is slow and exactly done by the doctor to cover the whole varicose veins net.
During the sclerotherapy procedure, you may feel a slight pinch as the needle is placed and an itching feeling as the solution is injected.
But this solution is not suitable for the varicose veins of pregnant woman.

For general knowledge women who are pregnant are not candidates for the varicose sclerotherapy during pregnancy.
Pregnancy varicose veins usually resolve naturally within months after childbirth. So most doctors will advise you to postpone sclerotherapy treatments for pregnancy.
