Got questions about giving birth? Know what to expect and when to expect it, with the Mumsnet Pregnancy Calendar.

If you had vvv's (vulval/vaginal varicose veins) during pg, what happened to them when you were giving birth?

Please tell me they don't actually explode (because that's what they feel like they might do) [nervous grin]

I had them when carrying my second baby (v.embarrassing to admit). They didn't cause any problems at the birth and disappeared after the birth (normal delivery). Hope this helps!

Thanks for your replies Underachiever and Mazza - that has made me feel slightly better. Anyone else out there got any advice/experience?

I can't remember even thinking about mine during childbirth - and they vanished almost straightaway afterwards - so don't worry. Horrible things to have though.

Thanks for the reassurance that they disappear afterwards. I have been completely traumatised by what is happening to this area and my legs too this time around. This didn't happen first time around and I don't know what to make of what is happening my body this time around
