Can a pelvic venogram affect my fertility?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 2 months ago
I have varicose veins at age 41. I had stripping on my leg and 15 years ago, the varicose veins returned.My vein doctor says I need a pelvic venogram before doing any laser vein removal, and thinks I have pelvic congestion (but I have no symptoms).

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 - 4 months ago
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?

Is a magnetic resonance venography the best test for me?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome - 10 months ago
Extensive ablations & sclerotherapy in both of my failing legs failing. As a result, the doctor is stopping treatment until I get a magnetic resonance venography w/contrast. Dr. suspects ovarian vein or pelvic congestion syndrome. I had an ultrasound done to top thigh only and the tech said the veins there were bad and suggested pelvic MRV too. Is this the best and most definitive test? Thanks
