Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
Chronic pelvic pain affects many women worldwide and is caused by varicose veins in the pelvis. Similar to varicose veins in the legs, varicose veins in the pelvis are caused by valves that allow blood to flow backwards, resulting in enlarged veins that pressure which causes inflammation and affect the nerves that lie next to the enlarged vein producing pain.
Many women suffer without knowing for years from pelvic congestion before receiving a diagnosis. If you have had chronic pelvic pain for more than 6 months, you may be suffering from Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. Symptoms include:
● Dull, aching pain in the lower abdomen and back
● Pain that increases after intercourse, during menstruation, during pregnancy, and after periods of extended standing
● Varicose veins on the vulva, buttocks, or thighs
● Vaginal discharge
