Spider veins are not harmful, In fact they are pretty normal. I have some of them too on my arms, they aren't severely noticeable but they are there. [ Zane's advice column | Ask Zane A Question ]

Since non of us are doctor we can't truly answer your question from a medical stand point. That and the fact that your question involves something that must be seen to in order to give you any advise as to what they are.
My advice is to tell your mother about them. This is nothing to be embarrassed about. There is nothing sexual about your breasts. They may be a sexually titillating object for men but for being sexual; the answer is no.
Mom and you are built alike so she will know if these red veins are something to be concerned about or just apart of your breast growing and maturing. She cannot tell for looking at your breasts, if she asks to look at them, if you have allowed a boy to touch then or do anything else to them or with them. Neither can she tell if you are a virgin or not, hopefully you still are.
When it comes to anything you feel is not right with your body or you don't feel well mom or dad is the best person to go to for advice as to what to do. This is especially important when it comes to your reproduction system.
You can have problems such as yeast infections that have nothing to do with if you are a virgin or not. Urinary track infects are more common in women than they are in men. Many girls try to ignore them as the sensation to a urinary track infection is felt in the vagina and they are afraid their parents will accuse them of having sex. This is wrong on both counts.
My advice is that you go to mom and tell her about the red veins. Then while you are talking to her talk to her about being able to come to her for other problems without being accused of something that has nothing to do with the problem. We adults sometimes forget what it is like to be a teenager and how we felt. We try to tell you we remember. Fact is we only remember the good times. Certain time we all block out as will you. These include times such as you are having now and other sick or embarrassing times. So talk to mom. [ adviceman49's advice column | Ask adviceman49 A Question ]
