A pelvic ultrasound would be the first step in this case. A pelvic venogram would be step two, and then a pelvic embolization. Research these topics and schedule a pelvic ultrasound.

Making the diagnosis of pelvic congestion syndrome is not easy. You may need to be seen by a board certified vein doctor to assess the situation and review the case. An emergency room is not the place where one can usually make the diagnosis of pelvic congestion syndrome.

This can be treated with minimally invasive techniques. It generally involves closing off the ovarian vein, and may also require closing veins in the pelvis. The next step would be to consult with an interventional radiologist, who can review the scan and your symptoms, and determine if you are a candidate for these techniques.
