Pelvic Congestion Syndrome is a common cause of chronic pelvic pain. It is caused by dilation of veins within the ovaries (or testicular veins) due to valve failure of obstruction of flow. In the same ways as varicose veins on the legs, blood can pool due to a loss of vein elasticity and function. This can cause enlarged veins that appear around the vagina in women or testes in men, inner thigh or buttock.
The risk of PVCS increases after pregnancy.
