What is Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?

Pelvic congestion syndrome, also known commonly as pelvic varicose veins, is a condition in which patients begin to experience bulging blue or red veins and discomfort along their lower abdomen and pelvic region. This condition typically occurs when the veins in the pelvis don't work the way they're supposed to and allow blood to pool in the veins around the lower abdomen causing swelling, chronic pelvic pain, and other complications. Patients who experience pelvic congestion syndrome may also suffer from other feminine conditions. If you believe you are experiencing the signs and symptoms of pelvic congestion syndrome, we encourage you to come in and see one of our vein specialists at your earliest convenience.

What Causes Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?

Pelvic congestion syndrome and pelvic varicose veins are caused by the valves in the veins aging or being damaged through trauma. When these valves do not function properly, they allow a backflow of blood to pool in the lower abdomen and pelvic region which causes the veins in these areas to enlarge and swell. While the exact cause of this pelvic congestion syndrome is still not yet known, most specialists attribute these varicose veins to changes in the pelvic structure during pregnancy and childbirth.
