Is there a connection between varicose veins and constipation?

Most likely it is caused by genetics, gender, hormones, or lifestyle (on your feet a lot.) That being said, if you are straining to have a bowel movement, you are increasing the pressure in your vasculature and not helping the situation. A change in your diet may help the constipation and take that out of the equation.
