It has been proved that there is a close relationship between lower extremity venous disease and pregnancy and postpartum. During pregnancy, the uterus gradually increased, the enlarged uterus of the inferior vena cava and iliac vein continued oppression, so that lower extremity venous blood flow is not smooth, resulting in lower extremity venous pressure continued to increase. In late pregnancy and increase output, reduced activity, the venous wall thinning, progesterone caused vascular elasticity; the change of the blood constituents, water more easily into the tissue; blood coagulation increased varices or vascular thickening, mainly for leg and ankle vein dilatation, tortuosity, winding. These adverse factors make pregnant women to be a good target for varicose veins of lower extremity, the prevalence is significantly higher than that of non pregnant women. Therefore, facing the mothers day: fatigue, pain, heavy legs, tension on tenterhooks; night calf tingling and cramps, visible foot swelling.
Statistics show that the first pregnant mother has 30% people with varicose veins; more than 50% of pregnant mothers have varicose veins.
After 1 - 2 months is the high incidence of venous thrombosis, and postpartum with plenty of hemostatic drugs and postpartum recovery period hypoactivity related venous thrombosis in pregnant women during the period of "confinement" is often shut out, not in the house or even completely bedridden, natural activity decreased, the blood circulation speed will slow down, the main reason of thrombosis. Add milk to postpartum, large amount of fat containing food, resulting in increased blood viscosity, but also one of the reasons for venous thrombosis.
These problems not only affect the appearance, but also detrimental to the health of pregnant women, the mother and baby risk.
For the treatment of varicosity in pregnancy without having to go to war with surgery or drug treatment so as not to affect the fetus, an important measure is the application of GEC, to improve the blood circulation of lower limbs, lower extremity edema, caused by varicose vein to relieve pain and discomfort, prevent the aggravation of varicose vein. And appropriate to increase the activity of pregnancy, to avoid long standing, sedentary, to improve the lower limb blood circulation, prevention and reduction of varicose veins.
