Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Many women suffer from ongoing pain and pressure in the abdomen. This is sometimes caused by a condition called Pelvic Congestion Syndrome, which is essentially varicose veins in the pelvis and lower abdomen. Pain often worsens after standing for prolonged periods or at the end of the day. Some women experience an increase in pain just before the onset of their period or during or immediately after intercourse. Even with today’s best technology, diagnosis of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome is very challenging, and results from treatment vary.

If you have continuing pain and feelings of pressure in your pelvis, talk to your Doctor about investigating further. VIRNA will work with your doctor to determine a course of action that may alleviate your symptoms.
