Varicose vein of the fanjo.......sorry

At least I think that's what it is. Not there yesterday, there today. I was checking with a mirror as I had had a sore blood blister type thing. Noticed this swollen bit on the inside of my out labia, right between the inner and outer.

Is this a pregnancy thing? Should I see Gp/mw?

Have been having a bruised feeling in the....... Er, not my groin, within the pubes inside the bikini line. Don't know if that's related. Nothing like this in my last pregnancy!

I dont think i got them in my labia- but didnt dare look. Sometimes felt kind of heavy and achy there.. Have had awful varicose veins all up my legs and incredibly painful if standing for long. Strangly they got better later in pregnancy. Id really recomend the strongest possible compression tights from if your suffering. By wearing them nearly all day every day from 20 weeks its made this pregnancy bearable! You can get compression kickers- NOT sexy but maby worth it to stop them getting worse. GP cant do much.

Yes I have this :-(

Had it last pregnancy starting about 30 weeks or so... this time it started at 16 weeks so it popped out much sooner this time.

It's sooo painful a when I've been stood for long periods or carrying my 18month old.

You can buy something called a v2 supporter but I haven't really tried it out yet to see how well it works as I haven't been stood for long periods so not been suffering too much lately.

Yep, i've had fanjo VVs in my first pregnancy! This time they're on my thighs. All glamour, isn't it?

Yep, 38 weeks pregnant and have several huge ones in my fanjo. Standing up first thing in the morning or after sitting is agony. I am also incredibly hairy but do not want to inflict my hideously swollen fanny on an unsuspecting waxer and i'm too afraid to go anywhere near it with scissors or a razor in case I accidently knick a vein and bleed to death. Good times.

Oh ffs. I was hoping it would be something else. Only 9 ish weeks to go.

It doesn't hurt, yet. Why?!?! As if a massive belly, constant weeing, thrush ffs, and painful hips isn't enough!

Nothing to be done then? Does it go after?

Urgh I think I have these too..I have a heavy feeling down there and lots of pressure..haven't dared look yet

being off my feet when the pressure gets bad helps but it's a horrible feeling- didn't have this at all in my first pregnancy <weeps>

This could have been written by me 8 months ago! Thankfully I now have a bouncing 8 month old baby and no thrush, painful hips and fa no veins.

Still have a big belly and excess weeing sadly.

Joking aside, the veins are nothing to worry about and will go away after birth. I remember checking in the mirror and being faced with Frankenstein's fanjo - dark purple with navy blue worm like veins shock.

You have my sympathies!

fanjo veins!

Frankensteins Fanjo! grin

Omfg. It's getting worse. Pretty sure the achey not quite groin is a vein, it does hurt when I first stand up etc, but can't see anything there through the hairs

The one in the fanjo though us horrendous! Swollen and blue. I actually can't believe it.
