i just started my second pack of yaz yesterday, and consequently it's my second pack of any BC ever!
i am 23, in great shape, i exercise fairly regularly, eat well, don't smoke, and am generally a very healthy person. there is no history of varicose veins in my family, and yet i just noticed a day or two ago that there are what look like tiny little varicose (or "spider") veins. i noticed just one, but today i looked at both legs a little more closely, and noticed that there are several tiny little spider veins!!!! i mean, no one can see them but me (unless i make them really look closely) but i feel like i am just a little too young to develop something like this.
i just did some research on varicose and spider veins, and of course all the info i got said it generally happens over the age of 50 to people who either have it in their family, are obese, smoke, etc. however, one website mentioned that sometimes it's related to hormones, and that sometimes when taking BC, it can cause little spider veins.
has anyone experienced this??? does it go away on its own?? is there anything i can do to prevent it from getting worse?!?! i'm too young to have this problem!!!!!!! any input would be great
