Q: 

pelvic congestion - Is it a real condition?

A: Dear Reader, "pelvic congestion" is not an easy answer for health care providers, since so many have different opinions concerning it. When women are sexually aroused, they experience some degree of pelvic congestion caused by an increase of blood flow to the vagina and vulva. This congestion, which is normal and temporary, is usually relieved by orgasm. If a woman does not orgasm, the congestion subsides, but more slowly. pelvic congestion can also be associated with unexplained pelvic symptoms that are uncomfortable, and even painful. pelvic...

Q: 

Is there any literature on pelvic congestion syndrome and its diagnosis and management? Is it a real condition and has there been any research into treating it

A: GP Notebook has a chapter on pelvic congestion syndrome [1], this can be viewed by following the URL in the reference section.  This should give a useful overview of management.    The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has a guideline on chronic pelvic pain [2].  This includes the following passage:   “Other proposed causes of cyclical pain, such as pelvic venous congestion, also appear to be well-controlled by ovarian suppression.”   In addition Cochrane have recently published a systematic review on chronic pelvic pain [3]:   “The review included studies of patients with a...
Q: 

pelvic congestion and mirena coil

A: Hello, Cramping and bleeding are common side effects in the first few months with an IUD. In most women these subside after a time. So, it could be related, but nobody can really be sure since every woman responds to these devices in her own way. Of course there is also the possibility your symptoms are not caused by either the condition or the Mirena IUD; but merely coincidental. If it continues for several months you should talk to your provider. Best wishes....


Q: 

I am 49 yrs old I had a hysterectomy with retention of one ovary at the age of 39 due to pelvic congestion and adenomyosis. I retained the ovary due to concerns over heart disease the other ovary was cystic and close to rupture so was removed. I have had routine mammograms which always show dense breast tissue. Last year I had a perivascular infiltrate on my left breast which was biopsied. had left breast ultrasound and diagnostic mammogram which were negative. around this time I was feeling my left breast for any lumps and I felt a small but very sharp area in my breast. After touching this area I literally had this sensation of sharp shooting pains that felt like it was jumping from one body part to another including my ovary. this lasted about 30 seconds to one min. My husband was sitting by me when this occured and did see something under the skin. I was never able to locate this area again and have been to 3 breast specialists who examined me and felt nothing abnormal. Now one year later I had my annual mammogram..again dense breast tissue. I cannot get this area out of mind. I had other problems last year along with the perivascular infiltrate which I now follow with a neurologist for. twitching of my extremities and numb sensations etc. they never did find out what my problem was. After a few months I begin to improve. Now one year later my breasts began both burning and I feel a discomfort in the middle of my breast. I have any appointment with my family physician and was going to ask if an MRI of the left breast would prove beneficial. My questios are could this have been a malignancy that could have broken off? Would an MRI be any more beneficial?Am I at higher risk of breast cancer since I retained the ovary and my grandmother had breast cancer? I feel like from day one my md has not believed me. 1 month prior to all this occuring I established with her, so in her defense she does realize that I am not a hypochondriac. Up until then I was totally healthy never really even went to doctors. not sure if my family hx is beneficial but I will list: maternal grandmother died from breast cancer at age 74. Mother had cervical cancer at age 39 and had a Total hysterecotmy. died of heart disease at 72.all of my mothers 1/2 sisters and brothers died from cancer, including colon,lung. my father died of heart disease 57. all grandparents died of cancer (throat, lung)my fathers brother and sisters living 80''s . my biological sisters 52-57 no cancer.

A: first keep in mind that 1 in 3 people will develop life threatening cancer of some kind. some scientists believe that if everyone had an autopsy upon death that the ratio may actually be 1 in 2 since not all people with cancer ever get diagnosed and die of something else. breast cancer can''t ''break off''. if you had cancer in the spot that cause you pain it would still be there and still causing trouble. pain is only associated with breast cancer less than 10% of the time and when it is usually the tumors are quite large in the breast. your grandmother having breast cancer increases your risk a little but not probably as much as you think. having only one ovary actually reduces your risk because you cut your risk by having one removed. hope that helps....
Q: 

pelvic congestion Syndrone

A: Hello, There are many doctors who understand this syndrome but I don''t know how you will find one unless you have a pelvic pain clinic in your area. You may need to call a larger medical center and ask for a referral to a doctor who deals with this issue. I''m sorry I can''t be more helpful. I do not have access to a directory of physicians by specialty and area. This syndrome is chronic dull and aching pain, possibly with episodes of sharp stabbing pain which gets worse with standing, exercising, walking, sitting, menstruating and many other times. I assume you have ruled out some other conditions such as endometriosis or cystic ovaries. No matter what the cause of your pain, you should be able to get help and relief. Best wishes....

Q: 

Intense pelvic / left side ovarian pain

A: Hi, NSAIDS are a class of drugs which are designed to relieve pain as well as reduce inflammation. Aspirin is acommon NSAID; others include ibuprofen, naproxen, ketoprofen, Drugs containing codeine should not generally beused for Endometriosis pain management. They can cause pelvic congestion and constipation, which couldexacerbate symptoms.GnRH are one of the drugs which are regularly prescribed for the actual treatment ofEndometriosis. They alter the natural hormone levels of the body and they chemically induce a state ofmenopause. This is to provide time for the Endometriosis implants to shrink, as they are not being fed by thenatural cycle of hormones, namely estrogen. This method of treatment appears to be relatively effective forsome...
