Contraception
Hi
I will be going on the contraceptive pill (Minerva) next month. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to prevent developing spider veins/ broken capillaries on my legs. Furthermore, do these side effects subside after 3 months ?

There isn't anything you can do to prevent this, but it is not something that occurs in everyone on the Pill. Once the veins are there, they tend to stay.

Best wishes
