Pelvic congestion is a condition that is caused by ovarian veins or pelvic veins and it can be quite painful. Pelvic congestion is associated with varicose veins in the thigh, buttock and/or vaginal area.

For most people varicose veins appear more frequently in the legs, but, if you are pregnant, you may be experiencing vaginal varicose veins. The greatest cause of this problem is that during pregnancy, women tend to gain weight and retain a lot of fluid. Another factor is that when the baby is in utero he/she can put pressure on the lower abdomen and pinch of veins in the vagina. In most cases, if you are experiencing vaginal varicose veins during your pregnancy, you will be experiencing varicose veins in your legs as well.

And unfortunately over time the varicose veins in the legs worsen. These problematic veins become more pronounced and swell, becoming engorged with blood, causing a lot of pain and itching.

Treatment for Pelvic Congestion

Chronic pelvic pain that is caused by ovarian vein and pelvic varicose veins can be treated using nonsurgical, minimally invasive, transcatheter treatments. To determine if you have ovarian varicose veins, your doctor will inject a contrast dye into targeted veins, this procedure is called a venogram. If varicose veins are discovered on the venography, they are treated with small coils or other agents. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation.

Risks

• Pain

• Swelling

• Bruising

• Bleeding

Recovery time is minimal, but you should expect to stay overnight in the hospital. Once you are discharged, you will be given oral pain medications for relief of discomfort. Pain is most significant during the first three days following your surgery.
