Pelvic Congestion Syndrome


Pelvic congestion syndrome occurs when varicose veins develop around the ovaries, similar to varicose veins that occur in the legs. Then: The valves in the veins no longer function normally. This causes blood to back up. The veins become engorged or “congested,” which can be very painful.
