I have pelvic congestion syndrome, what are my treatment options?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 4 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?

If I have the veins in my pelvis tied off or have an embolism, will I still be able to safely get pregnant? Could the Mirena have caused my PCS?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 1 year ago2 answers
I've been having pain and nausea with my pelvic congestion syndrome, and it's causing a lot of urinary distress. This has been going on for the last 6 months. I have had 3 kids and I experienced no painful periods before or after. I had Mirena placed in March 2014 and by August the pain started. Yesterday I was diagnosed with PCS. Could the device have caused this? Will having it taken out reduce my symptoms? If I have an embolism or the veins in my pelvis tied off, can I safely get pregnant?
