PROVIDING HOUSTON PATIENTS RELIEF FROM DISCOMFORT & PAIN
Pelvic congestion syndrome (also known as ovarian vein reflux) is a condition where the veins in the pelvis become unusually enlarged, causing blood to pool inside them. This commonly occurs in women ages 20-45 years old and can be the cause of pelvic pain that cannot be explained by other pelvic abnormalities. At Premier Vein & Vascular Center, our board-certified doctors are trained to treat this condition with state of the art equipment in our Katy vascular treatment facility.
UNDERSTANDING PELVIC CONGESTION SYNDROME (PCS)
Many times, symptoms don’t appear until a woman becomes pregnant, and then they continue after the pregnancy. The main symptom of PCS is pelvic pain. The pain typically worsens as the day goes on, especially for women who sit or stand all day, and then goes away after a night of sleep.
The pain can also worsen:
- During or following intercourse
- Around menstrual periods
- After certain physical activities, such as bicycling or horseback riding
A FEW OF THE SYMPTOMS OF PELVIC CONGESTION SYNDROME INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
- Vaginal discharge
- Intercourse pain
- Tender lower abdomen
- Swollen vagina/vulva
- Abnormal menstrual bleeding
- Painful menstrual bleeding
- Varicose veins
