Learn More About Pelvic Veins

Nearly one-third of all women will experience chronic pelvic pain in their lifetime and some of these women are told the problem is “psychological.”

The pain may be due to hard to detect pelvic varicose veins, also known as Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS).

The causes of chronic pelvic pain are varied, but sometimes are associated with the presence of ovarian varicose veins and pelvic varicose veins. Pelvic Congestion Syndrome is similar to varicose veins in the legs. In both cases, the valves in the veins that help return blood to the heart malfunction and don’t close properly allowing blood to flow backwards and pool in the veins causing bulging veins, pressure, pain and discomfort. In the pelvis, varicose veins can cause pain and may affect the uterus, ovaries and vulva. About 15 percent of women of child-bearing age have varicose veins in the pelvis, but not all women experience symptoms.

The diagnosis of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome is often missed because these abnormal pelvic veins cannot be seen or detected with a physical examination or a pelvic exam by a gynecologist.

Many women with pelvic varicose vein pain spend years trying to get an answer to why they have this chronic pelvic pain, which may affect not only the woman directly, but also her interactions with her spouse, family, friends and her general outlook on life. Since the cause of the chronic pelvic pain is not diagnosed, appropriate treatment is not provided even though there is excellent treatment available.

If you have chronic pelvic pain that worsens throughout the day, especially when standing or sitting for prolonged periods of time, schedule an appointment with Vein911. You may be a candidate for a simple outpatient procedure called “embolization” that eliminates pelvic varicose veins and the symptoms they cause.  Vein911 specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome.

Some PCS patients may also have varicose veins in the groin, labia, vulva or buttocks. Some women may suffer from PCS, varicose veins of the groin, labia, vulva or buttocks as well as leg varicose veins. In some cases, women with varicose veins in the legs may also be suffering from varicose veins in the groin, labia, vulva or buttocks but not have the symptoms of PCS.

The great news is the pelvic varicose vein specialists at Vein911 in Tampa are experts at eliminating painful varicose veins in the pelvis, groin, labia, vulva or buttocks using a fast, simple and painless pelvic vein treatment.
