Pregnancy and Varicose Veins


I was recently diagnosed with venous insufficiency. I am actively trying to get pregnant but was advised by my doctor to get my 5 veins (3 in my left leg) and (2 in my right leg) treated before I got pregnant as pregnancy aggravates the existing disease. The diameter of each of the veins are approx. 5-6mm.

My question is has anyone been in this situation? How did you handle it? Did you get treatment before or after pregnancy (Note: Im not pregnant at this time).

Also, is anyone aware of any complications from taking the Circulation Essentials supplement? I currently wear compression hose but am wanting to incorporate this supplement. Is this safe to take while pregnant or breast feeding?

Thank you,
