Pelvic Congestion Syndrome Questions

What are the risks of having sclerotherapy performed on my internal iliac veins?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 4 weeks ago1 answer
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 - 1 month 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?

Is it possible to have pelvic congestion at age 66?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 2 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 - 7 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?
