Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome is a condition characterized by the abnormal pooling of venous blood around a woman’s uterus.  It’s a lot like having varicose veins in the legs only the abnormal blood flow occurs in veins within the pelvis, most commonly the ovarian veins where the blood flow is going the wrong direction, causing this blood to pool around the uterus.  Unfortunately,  it’s a condition that is very difficult to diagnose because many of the symptoms of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome are similar to other conditions.

Symptoms include:

  • Heavy periods
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Pelvic Bloating
  • Back Pain
  • Constipation
  • Urinary Frequency
