What is Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?
Pelvic congestion syndrome is a condition that occurs when women begin to experience varicose veins around their lower abdomen and pelvis. Pelvic congestion syndrome may also be referred to as pelvic varicose veins, as these veins stop functioning properly and start to fill with blood causing a bulging blue or red appearance on the skin. This condition can cause a great deal of discomfort in female patients and result in constant dull pain in the pelvic region. We often suggest our female patients undergo diagnostic testing for pelvic congestion syndrome when experiencing chronic pelvic pain.
What Causes Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?
Pelvic congestion syndrome and pelvic varicose veins are caused by the valves in the veins not functioning properly and allowing blood to pool in the veins. This pooling can cause the veins to enlarge, and become swollen and irritated which causes chronic pain. While the exact cause of this condition is still not yet known, most specialists attribute pelvic congestion syndrome to alterations in the pelvic structure during pregnancy and after having given birth. These changes to the system may exacerbate vein disease and cause pelvic congestion syndrome, chronic pelvic pain, and pelvic varicose veins to occur.
How Much Does Treatment for Pelvic Congestion Syndrome Cost?
The cost of your pelvic congestion syndrome treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your pelvic congestion syndrome treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
