Yes!! Thank God I'm not the only one! I'm pregnant now with my first child--by choice---not by failure of BC.
) I never had spider veins until I started birth control---particularly---Nuvaring and I only used the ring for about 6 months. Not only did I get spider veins, but I also had achey crampy upper thighs. NOT fun! Needless to say, I got off BC all in all. Nothing was working for me. Many years before Nuvaring, I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen---it made me sick and very bloated---but I didn't get spider veins. My mom doesn't even have spider veins!!! I'm only 28! Yikes!!!
Now after my baby is boirn in June---I want to get back on BC, but I'm not sure what to take?!? UGhhh!
As far as getting rid of them---I haven't found a solution yet.
