Can PCS cause bloating and a feeling of inflammation on the right side of the abdomen?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 1 week ago1 answer
I have PCS and apart from occasional pain in the pelvic area, I feel daily periodical pain only on the right side of my abdomen (from pelvis up, but mostly near belly button and all the way to the ribs). The pain has been daily for years but doctors can't find the cause. Can PCS cause this? So far doctors have been useless, and I am very worried. It's a 3 to 4 on the pain scale, but it's a nagging pain that lasts for a few seconds to an hour and comes and goes a few times a day.

Pregnant and bleeding from pelvic congestion syndrome. What can I do?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 3 weeks ago1 answer
Last year I gave birth in week 22 + 5 because of heavy bleeding. Nobody could explain the bleeding. I am now pregnant in week 12 and have had 4 very heavy bleeds. Doctors have now said I have PCS but have never seen it before. I will be passed on to a specialist. I am writing from Denmark; I cannot find any information in Danish. I'm desperate and very scared. Cannot loose another baby. What can I do? I am on bed rest. Doctor says blood vessels are enourmous. I have discomfort but no pain.

I started to wear thigh compression 20-30mmHg for an AVM that extends from thigh to pelvic area. Vulvar area has become swollen and painful. What now?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 3 months ago2 answers
Vein malformation is congenital and has been treated with embolization/sclerotherapy at NYU/St Luke 11 times. At this point, collateral circulation grows within a year of vein treatment. I read of the Velcro-assisted garment for thigh only. I had many good days of walking, but then my vulva became swollen, similar to thrombosis. Now, it is being suggested by a CML that I get lymphatic massage to break through the vulvar area of congestion. I never had lymph malformation. I am so confused/sad.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 4 months ago4 answers
I had an ovarian vein embolization done in July of 2015. Unfortunately, the problem has returned and I again have hip/leg pain. What are the risks of having sclerotherapy performed on my internal iliac veins? Also, how do I find a doctor that is around my area and proficient in this? The ones I have talked to for a 2nd consult don't do very many of them and I am very nervous of saying yes in light of this. Thank you for any help.

I was showing signs of premenopause before having an ebolization done to treat PCS, and now my period only lasts a day or two. Is this normal?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 5 months ago4 answers
I have hot flashes/night sweats that make me feel as though I've bathed. I'm also very moody and want to cry over nothing at times and then get really agitated. Since having an embolization for PCS, my periods only last a day or 2 now and are extremely heavy. Then, I'll stop and 2-3 days later, I'll have black discharge. I still get horny but my vaginal area stays dry a lot. I've had to use lubricants to help with sex. Is this premenopause? Is it normal after an embolization?

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 6 months ago6 answers
Last year I had surgery for Nutcracker Syndrome, and later had my left ovarian vein coiled due to symptoms of pelvic congestion. Now, I am experiencing identical pain/discomfort, but my new gynecologist says I am too old to have pelvic congestion syndrome. I am on HRT with hormone pellets containing testosterone and estradiol. I've had 2 pregnancies, and my uterus and ovaries have been removed. Do you concur?

I have pelvic congestion syndrome, what are my treatment options?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 11 months ago3 answers
I had an ablation in May of 2014, but I have been dealing with lower right stomach pain since May of this year. A CT scan was performed and it shows I have pelvic congestion. I can't stand up straight. I'm really depressed. At this point I just lay in bed and apply a heating pad. When I try to get up and walk, pain comes and it feels like a contraction. What are my treatment options? Do I need surgery, or is there a less invasive procedure that can be done?
