Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
Sclerotherapy of your leg veins do not affect your periods or vice versa. The drug injected into the veins hardly get to the systemic circulation and even if it does there is no danger of it damaging the uterine lining ( endometrium) which is shed during your period.
Please go ahead if it has been scheduled.
Do get back to me if you have more queries.
Best wishes,
