What is Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) And How Can It Affect You?

Pelvic congestion syndrome is a medical condition that causes chronic pelvic pain. The condition is thought to be due to problems with the enlarged veins in your pelvic area. Women of childbearing age who have had more than one pregnancy may have the highest risk of pelvic congestion syndrome. Pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) is a disease that is often undiagnosed in women with pelvic pain. Chronic pelvic pain affects approximately 15% of premenopausal women in the United States.

If you’ve been living with chronic pelvic pain, it may be a direct link to pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). Obinna Nwobi, MD, of Vascular Health Center in Oviedo, Winter Haven, and Apopka, Florida, is an expert in this condition and can provide you with comprehensive information on how to alleviate your pain and take control of your health and happiness. 

PCS often goes undiagnosed, so it is important to ask our doctors about your risks.

Treatment
What are the
Treatment Options?

At Vein Health Clinics, we provide two types of treatment for PCS. The first is hormonal therapy. Each hormonal medication administered will reduce the blood flow to your engorged pelvic veins, which then makes your symptoms less pronounced. Although it has a high success rate, some patients require alternative treatments.


Our second approach involves using a technique called nonsurgical embolization. During your nonsurgical embolization procedure, we’ll insert a small catheter into a vein in your upper arm, shoulder, or thigh. We’ll then use imaging to guide ourselves to the problem vein and plug it using embolization. As a minimally-invasive procedure, it takes place on an outpatient basis in one of our offices. There’s no need for stitches or general anesthetic, so the recovery is fast.
