pelvic varicose veins

There are complications in the mother’s body after giving birth. During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through serious changes that result in the birth of a new life and, unfortunately, in many diseases. Pelvic varicose veins are one of the many possible veins.

The disease occurs in 30% of pregnant women and often affects the condition of the internal organs after the birth of a child. Sometimes the symptoms appear at this point: the body responds in a similar way to prolonged stress, indicating that the body has deteriorated over the past nine months. The situation is striking when not the first child is born or the birth was complicated.

Some doctors, when asked how to treat an illness, shrug their shoulders and ask not to worry. If the pain is constantly disturbed, there is a risk of further complications of the disease, the answer is one: treat it!

Symptoms of the disease

Pelvic varicose veins can be easily hidden from a person by a number of other diseases that cause constant abdominal pain. Sometimes the disease develops in parallel with other pathologies of pregnancy. If you start treatment on time, the results will definitely remain positive.

Patients with pelvic varicose veins have the following symptoms:

  • The constant aching back and abdominal pains intensify if we stand without movement for a long time. If the focus of painful feelings increases, it gives in the perineum or lower back;
  • The pain of intercourse, the lack of orgasm - the symptoms and causes of the disease. Often the signs develop in parallel, you need to stay alert and watch your feelings carefully so as not to miss the disturbing pain. If intercourse is interrupted for contraception, the risk of the disease is extremely high;
  • Vaginal sensitivity increased;
  • In adolescents, the disease rarely develops without obvious manifestations. If there is undue discharge from the genitals, this will be an alarming sign to see a doctor. There is also an unexplained discharge from the genitals in adult women;
  • The strange reaction of the body to changes in temperature;
  • Heavy menstruation, constant painful pain, premenstrual syndrome, dysmenorrhea;
  • Negative response to excessive physical exertion;
  • Stagnation of blood in parametric veins;
  • Sometimes - difficulty urinating.

Symptoms are less common in other diseases and often affect the mass of the pelvic organs. Uterine varicose veins and testicular varicose veins are separate inflammations that have nothing to do with the above causes. The diagnosis is made by the doctor on the basis of several indicators: the factor taken into account, the causes of the disease are clarified later.

Keep in mind that patients with varicose veins manifest themselves differently, sometimes not all symptoms are seen in the body. To prove the diagnosis is correct, doctors use stimulants to test the body’s response. Timely diagnosis guarantees fast and painless treatment. You don’t have to leave your body, you can’t allow your varicose veins to develop with impunity.

Self-healing should not be practiced. Most women are unable to diagnose the disease on their own without special knowledge - they need to go to a doctor. Even after reading many articles about the disease, it is easy to ignore the simplest contraindications for each treatment procedure.

Diagnosis: how to confirm the diagnosis

You can get advice from various doctors about diseases: a venous phlebologist, a surgeon who specializes in treating blood vessels. The doctor will provide expert advice, explain the causes of the illness and recommend the necessary treatment.

It is recommended to visit the gynecology department before treatment. In response to an appeal, a doctor has the right to order a number of tests to confirm or rule out the presence of pathology between internal organs:

  • Phlebography through the uterus;
  • Ovaricography;
  • Ultrasound;
  • Laparoscopy;
  • CT scan.

All procedures are performed with the consent of the women being treated. The reason for the diversity is to take into account the individual characteristics of the patient, the desires of the woman and possibly the minor doubts of the treating physician in the diagnosis.


If a pregnant girl is diagnosed with pelvic varicose veins, gentle treatment is often prescribed. Includes wearing special medical clothing. The woman in labor is not taking medication, and the effects of the medication on the fetus have not been studied. It is better not to take risks and only get rid of the disease after pregnancy. Healing stockings remain mandatory until full recovery.

The main rule of treatment is the normalization of the patient's lifestyle: it is impossible to stay upright for a long time, work must be normalized, especially work involving physical exertion. Exercises against pelvic varicose veins are not disputed because they are preventative in nature. Appointed by a doctor. The main activity is to relieve the body: exercises such as "birch", "scissors", "bicycle" and others are used. Even breathing exercises are useful in normalizing the work of a tired body, restoring blood vessels to their former state. A daily contrast shower is recommended in the perineal area.

The causes of varicose veins affect the general condition of the internal organs, even if the symptoms do not show a similar condition. During treatment, the diet should be normalized, bad habits such as alcohol and smoking should be stopped, no drugs should be talked about. We recommend increasing the consumption of plant products, and certainly also the consumption of fresh vegetable oils. It is beneficial for blood vessels that require nutrients. It is beneficial to consume more products that contain or produce collagen that enters the body: the substance has a positive effect on the connective tissues of the blood vessels, restoring and elasticizing the former elasticity.

If conservative treatment methods do not help, surgery should be used. The surgery is performed in an area where blood stagnation is strong. Your doctor will make sure that your venous parameters are OK and working normally.

What happens if varicose veins are not treated

The diseases that carry the consequences of the disease cannot be called fatal and terrible. However, it is unacceptable to sit with arms folded for the disease to progress. We must not forget that if there is no treatment, the internal organs suffer. Diagnosing varicose veins affects the myometrium of the uterus, causing the body a lot of difficulty with blood outflow.

Researchers distinguish three degrees of development of varicose veins:

  1. The vein grows to 5 millimeters, the type and course of the vessels is corkscrew;
  2. The vein grows to 6 to 10 millimeters, with the possibility of loose ecstasy of the ovarian plexus, damage to the parametric veins and the veins of the arcuatus plexus of the uterus;
  3. The vein expands by more than 10 millimeters, the pelvic varicose veins eventually appear, or venous parameters are affected.

Treatment varies depending on the stage of progression. In severe cases, surgery is even possible. In the first and second stages of the disease, conservative methods of treating blood vessels are used, which affect the causes of organ damage and eradicate the disease. Use venotonics (increase vascular tone), exercise therapy, anti-inflammatory drugs.

If the first symptoms appear, you should see a doctor so that it does not get worse later. Most women try not to pay attention to pelvic varicose veins, while the treatment does not require much effort.

It is forbidden to start treatment on your own. Pelvic varicose veins are not a fatal disease, but breaking the rules threatens serious complications.
