I am asking this on behalf of my aunt. She is 32 years old and gave birth last year. After giving birth, she experienced bulging veins on her legs. It looks like varicose veins. It has been around 8 months since but the veins are still there. She doesn’t have a history of diabetes. However, during the early stage of her pregnancy, she was taking medications to lower her cholesterol levels. How do we know if this condition is a vascular issue? And do you think 8 months is a sufficient time period for us to have waited before we see a doctor for her condition?
