I don't have any odors or abnormal discharge. However, I have had vulva veins for a while now which I've been using compression wear for. Lately, I have been SO ITCHT down there. I've heard this happens with the veins and stretching skin but it gets unbearable. I use natural soaps and keep my area clean. I often let it air out at night (no underwear). Yet, I am itching to the point where my husband gets concerned I'm going to hurt my skin every night. Has ANYONE found any creams or remedies that help with this?! I'm desperate.
Can I ask if the varicose veins cause you any symptoms? I'm thinking I might have them but I don't have to courage to look even if I could see down there!
Hmmm the ones on the vulva just feel really puffy when I pee and it feels like the skin in my pubic area is stretching.
Ah yes that's the same as me. When I sit on the loo it feels swollen and pressure. I'll maybe ask the mw to take a look next week!
Just found this thread Sarah1980...thank you. I've read up about the varicose veins and it sounds likely, although I daren't look or get my other half to look ha. I'll wait for the Midwife!
Haha! I wasn't keen either but I felt soooo uncomfortable one night I was just like "would you have a look and see what's going on" it was pointless though as I should have known he'd say he couldn't see anything different! I ended up getting up during the night and standing in a cold shower from the waist down to ease it a bit!
