Pelvic varicose veins
Description:Our veins carry blood back to the heart from all over the body. When the blood flow is against gravity, tiny valves within the veins open and close to stop the blood from flowing backwards. Sometimes, however, these valves become weak and this allows the blood to flow backward and to pool in the veins, causing varicose veins. We are familiar with varicose veins forming in the legs but there are also veins in the pelvic area, the uterus, ovaries, vulva and vagina which can be similarly affected. Varicose veins in the pelvis are often referred to as pelvic congestion syndrome or pelvic venous flow disorder.
