Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
What is Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) is a condition caused by
Varicose Veins in the Pelvis. The Varicose Veins are caused by incompetent
valves in the Veins of the Pelvis. This causes blood to fall back into the
Pelvis rather than being taken away from the Pelvis by the Iliac Vein which
What are the symptoms of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome?
The symptoms of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) are caused

How is Pelvic Congestion Syndrome diagnosed?
If you suffer with any of the symptoms above and/or have any
visible Varicose Veins around the Vulva, Groin or Vagina then you need
to see a Medical Professional and have a Venous Duplex Ultrasound Scan. Scans such as Ultrasound, MRI and CT are not enough to diagnose Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. Sadly, a lot of women are misdiagnosed!
Currently in Ireland there is nowhere to have a Transvaginal Duplex Ultrasound Scan nor is the treatment for Pelvic Congestion Syndrome available in Ireland.
If you have PCS or you think you have please get in touch with Claudia at the Claudia McGloin Clinic/The Vein Clinic Ireland. You can contact her directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the clinic on 071 9140728.
