Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins on uterus symptoms

varicose-veins

I am not sure if I have varicose veins or not. I am around 50 lbs overweight and 6 1/2 weeks pregnant. My legs are aching really bad from the knees to my ankles. I do have some small prominent blue bulging veins near the surface, but they have been there for years and never hurt. Can a person have them so deep that you can't see it? I fell last week and have some very deep and large contusions on the front of my right leg. My calves seem to be slightly swollen, but my ankles are normal.
What other symptoms are present? Varicose veins or enlarged, swollen, and tortuous veins may indeed appear in various parts of the body, including the uterus. This may be due to pregnancy or changes in hormone levels and hormone balance leading to a relaxation of the blood vessel walls. Before considering surgery, there are many factors to consider such as the size, your medical history, symptoms and risks. It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician for proper evaluation.
Yeah, I'm one of the lucky ones with varicose veins too :-( I have a few on my legs that look and feel like raised bruises, and my labia is swollen too. My obgyn said it's not uncommon and that, unfortunately, it will just continue to get worse until delivery...as the weight of your uterus (and baby) increases and puts more pressure on the veins. Oh well, it's all worth it for a healthy baby!
(yuck) I also had an ultrasound of the pelvis and they said my I may have pelvic congestion syndrome (kind of like varicose veins around the uterus) Anyway, I asked my doctor if these could be perimenopausal symptoms and he didn't think so. He started me on birth control (nuvoring) and although that has helped the pelvic pain, it has made the burning feeling on my skin much worse. Just wondered if anyone else has had these symptoms with hormone changes.
Dr performed an internal ultrasound which showed the pelvic congestion varicose veins all pressing on my uterus. Dr performed a laparoscopy. Found moderate endometriosis and of course, varicocele or large tangle of varicose veins, only on left side, due to nutcracker. Dr removed endo with laser. Dr also used laser ablation on varicocele walls to prevent it from pulling on my uterus. I am now three weeks post laparoscopy. Initially my left kidney hurt, but has since stopped.
What he did find was that I have several very thick, varicose veins on my uterus. I will learn more when I see him in a couple of weeks. I had no idea that you could have varicose veins here!
My husband and I were also trying to conceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus. I did, however have low ovarian reserve for someone my age. They finally listened to my pleas of pain in my pelvic and did a pelvic MRI on me only to discover I had Pelvic Congestion. I was dumbfounded. Everything I had read stated that only woman who have had multiple pregnancies develop this syndrome.
I do feel as though my veins are painful. I don't have varicose veins but have noticed an increase in spider veins in legs and larger veins have become more noticeable.
Pelvic congestion is caused by varicose veins deep within the pelvis. The veins which take blood from the pelvic area back up to the heart have faulty valves that leak blood back down and cause pooling. This pooling of the blood is what causes the pain and can effect the ovaries, uterus and vagina. Pelvic congestion syndrome presents in women between 20 and 40 years old.
Well... we are at home now. The doctors gave us a rude awakening the other day. Came in at 4:45pm and told us. "The test results from your MRI (of the gall bladder and pancreas) are negative so we have prepared your paperwork". "Paperwork?", we said. "Yes, your discharge papers" said the doctors. Needless to say we were outraged. I was FUMED and very loud.
I also have genital warts that I am being treated for and wondered if any of these symptoms can come from this? Alot going on and worried too much! I am 39 with one child 3 years old.
the Dr also thinks I might have the type of endo that is inside the uterus. I was also diagnosed with Chronic Pelvic Congestion (like varicose veins around uterus).. The dr thinks if the shots help then I will do well with a hysterectomy. I guess my question is this: Has anyone suffered with any of this? And taken Aygestin? Thanks!
along one of the surface veins on my shin on the same leg. I showed my obgyn and he said it was a collapsed surface vein and the same one in my left leg is doing the same thing. He attributed it to whatever pressure is causing the vericose vein. Now, wednesday night I didn't sleep well, kept waking up and EVERYTHING ached, every muscle, every joint. When I got up thursday morning I hurt so bad all over, I was having BH contx before I even got out of bed.
At 20 weeks I was still puking several times a day, and shortly after that I got varicose veins along my episiotomy scar. I was told a belly brace might help, but I couldn't stand having anything tight on my belly either. I also had back labor twice, and that was way more intense. Take some Tylenol and try to relax at the end of the day. It will get better, there are good days and bad ones, they will get rougher at the end though.
I was having a constant dull pain on my lower right side, which was thought to be due to a small cyst that I had developed during the pregnancy. My doctor found the variscosities on my Uterus during the Laprcoscopic procedure to remove the cyst. Since then, the pain is constant and has become a bit worse, especially two days prior to my menstrual cycle. Having no relief from the pain is really wearing me down. This has become a quality of life issue for me.
I have all three plus others. I am now dealing with varicose veins in the genital region on JUST ONE SIDE (what is THAT all about?) and I am not sure what the doctor is going to do about that or if anything can be done. Found one vein by accident a few years ago. Tons showed up on the ultrasound I had today. Another fall-out apparently, from the hysterectomy. I had better quit. Dictation is waiting. I fear that I would be writing forever if I continue.
It is also quite possible that you could have Adenomyosis or Pelvic congestion (huge varicose veins on the uterus/pelvic cavity) Did your uterus show up as enlarged by any chance? I am going to message you some places you can get some further help from. There is an Endo association in ireland and they can lead you in the right direction with help and services. The only one I know in Ireland is this guy Mr.
Your body continues to change throughout the pregnancy, your blood vessels will dilate (that's why many women will get varicose veins and will get swelling of the legs). In fact, in the third trimester, the blood pressure should be low - if it is high, it may be dangerous and could suggests pre-eclampsia and toxemia. I would recommend that you stay well hydrated, stand slowly, eat well and enjoy every second of it!
I did have baby #2 and felt like he was going to fall out, I got varicose veins along my scar tissue, and began to have pain around 20 weeks. I made it just fine, pretty sore at the end, but delivered him vaginally and he was much smaller, 8 lbs. 13 oz. My Dr. stitched me up more and it made a huge difference. I have found I can use super tampons and they stay put a little better, but once I got stitched up it really helped as I was much different after the first baby.
I have had these same symptoms for years but they started to get worse since the birth of my children. If the problem is the varicose veins, I was told by a nurse at the health department that taking vitamin E helps. Watch your dosage within a week and see how things go. I know I still have pressure once in a while when I run out of my vitamins but the pain/pressure is a lot less and barely noticeable when I am taking them. I hope this helps anyone else having these problems.

When reading through all the comments here, the only thing I notice, is that all the symptoms any of us has put down that might be related, shows no consistency with everyone else on this thread. I am thinking of sending a link to this thread to a vein specialist. But I doubt anything will come from it...I mean, it seems to be not dangerous at all, so why should the doctors care?

My tubes have been tied for 10 yrs but I have a tumor on my cervix and fibroids on my uterus. Is there anything anyone can say positive? Will I lose my sex drive? Do have have to worry about my bladder dropping? Will it fell like an "empty tunnel" when my husband has sex with me like some of his friends have said?
I had myself paranoid that I had MS or some other thing. I went to a neurologist and he said that the symptoms would not occur on such a random basis if it were MS. He said the symptoms tend to be more constant when you have that....unless of course you are not in an active stage. I think it could be the nerve from the lower back. That is what his first thought was. Who knows....but glad that I am not the only "freak" out there.
