When you think of vein problems, you likely think of issues associated with the legs.

For women, damaged valves in the pelvic region can cause severe pain. At Vein & Body Specialists, our team of board-certified radiologists helps women suffering from pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) caused by venous conditions. If you live in Bellevue, Sandusky, Fremont, or Norwalk, Ohio, call us for relief today.
What Is Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS)?
Pelvic pain in women is commonly caused by venous problems, such as varicose veins in the pelvis. Pelvic congestion syndrome, or PCS, is characterized by the presence of varicose veins in the pelvic region. When PCS is present, you may feel a constant achy feeling in the buttocks or pelvis, accompanied by pressure and heaviness.
What Causes Pelvic Pain or Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?
When the valves in veins become damaged or weak, blood pools in the areas of the body with damaged veins and causes dilation and enlargement of the veins. In PCS, these varicose veins form around the vagina, uterus, vulva, and fallopian tubes. Women with PCS feel the pressure, heaviness, and pain associated with varicose veins around the entire pelvic region, which is extremely uncomfortable.
What Are the Symptoms of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?
Symptoms of this condition include:
- Achiness, heaviness, and numbness in the pelvic region
- Swelling of the vagina and/or vulva
- Visible varicose veins
- Abnormal menstruation
- Tenderness in the lower abdomen
- Pain during sexual intercourse or menstrual periods
- Lower back pain
