Pelvic venous congestion can cause chronic pain for premenopausal women who have had multiple children. Pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) is thought to affect about 15% of premenopausal women within the United States. Pelvic venous congestion results when the veins in your abdomen because enlarged and stretched, becoming varicose veins that can hold a large amount of blood and lead to pelvic congestion in your abdomen. These veins can be extremely uncomfortable and even painful. If you are suffering from pelvic venous congestion, the vein care specialists at Vascular Health Center in Florida can help you find relief.
The symptoms of PCS can vary greatly between patients, which is part of why it is so important to see a specialist who has been expertly trained in the diagnosis of vascular disorders. For many people, symptoms include bladder irritability or urgency, pelvic pain in the lower abdomen for more than six months, pain after or during intercourse, increased pain from prolonged periods of standing, and pain that extends into the butt or thighs. Pelvic venous congestion often goes undiagnosed because there is limited awareness outside of the vascular specialization.
When diagnosing PCS, your doctor will use ultrasonography and other imaging to take a closer look at the veins in your abdomen to determine if they are twisted or enlarged. Dr. Obinna Nwobi is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation, which means he has the specialized training that will allow him to accurately assess your vascular ultrasounds and provide precise diagnostic insight. When it comes to your vascular health, you deserve to receive treatment and support in an environment that is professional and welcoming, where your questions will be answered with care and respect. Unlike a general practitioner, the specialists at Vascular Health Center have the unique training and clinical experience to be able to correctly diagnose complex vascular disorders, including pelvic venous congestion so that you can receive appropriate treatment.
There are several treatment options for PCS, and the vein care specialists at Vascular Health Center can help you decide which is best for you. Sclerotherapy can offer relief by injecting a sterile chemical into the varicose vein lining, which will collapse it and redirect the blood to other healthy veins. Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a catheter to close off damaged veins. And iliac venous stenting uses a small tubular support to improve blood flow through the veins. Each of these treatments can significantly reduce your PCS symptoms to help improve your overall quality of life.
