Varicose veins are slowly becoming the most popular and common condition among working women. The world we live in requires more and more sitting or standing for long periods of time.
The working hours have changed, and 9 to 5 office hours have become a standard for many women.
The problem with the 9 to 5 working hours is that women and men are required to sit in front of a computer or stand for 8 hours straight.
Conditions that were not as common 20 years ago, nowadays are target one in two women. Varicose veins are one of the most common conditions that women develop due to the long standing and/or sitting hours.
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are actually swollen and enlarged veins that prevent the blood flow towards the heart. They are caused by damaged valves and veins.
And since the blood is not flowing towards the heart, it is gathering and accumulating in the veins.
The more serious condition is thrombosis when the blockage runs deeper in the veins.
Fortunately, varicose veins and thrombosis can be treated with homemade recipes and alternative medicine.
Causes for varicose veins
Two of the main causes for varicose veins are age and pregnancy. As people get older (especially women), the veins lose their elasticity and stretch.
This results in valves in the veins becoming weak, which allows blood to flow backward instead of towards the heart.
The result is blood pools in the veins, which enlarges the veins and they become varicose.
Pregnancy is another cause for varicose veins. One in two women develop varicose veins during pregnancy as the volume of blood in their body increases, but the flow decreases.
The change of circulation of blood is designed in order to support the fetus. However, the side effect is enlarged and varicose veins.
For some women, varicose veins appear for the first time during pregnancy, while… for others, the condition worsens during the period. Sometimes, varicose veins disappear three months following delivery.
Risk factors for varicose veins include family history, obesity and sitting or standing for long periods of time during the day.
Women are also more prone to varicose veins due to female hormones.
Unlike male hormones, female tend to relax the walls of the veins. Birth control pills and hormone therapy further increases the risk.

However, there are cases when varicose veins are painful, and include symptoms like: achy or heavy feeling in the leg, itching around the veins, skin ulcers near the ankles, muscle cramping and swelling in the lower area of the legs, worsened pain after sitting or standing for a long period of time.
