Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
This condition is also known as pelvic venous insufficiency and is a condition where there is long-lasting pain in the pelvis. This is usually due to accumulation of blood in the veins that empties from the ovaries and uterus. Over time these veins become larger and larger with overflow of blood increasing the sensation of pressure in the pelvis, vulvar and vaginal area. Varicose veins may be noted in unusual places such as the buttocks, vulva, vagina, abdomen and legs.
