Okay so I have been having some pain and swelling on top left side of my vagina. Kind of like my super lower abdomen region. My practitioner is pretty sure that it is a varicose vein. I can't see a vein protruding, but I can feel it under the skin. My question is...if you have had this problem what did you do for the pain and discomfort, and do you know of anything that I can do to keep it from getting worse.
