Pelvic congestion syndrome is a condition that occurs either before or during the menstrual period and normally occurs due to a problem with the veins present in the pelvis. The veins normally get dilated and become completely convoluted and then blood accumulates in them. This then results in varicose veins in the pelvic region. This is a disorder called the pelvic congestion syndrome. There is a lot of pain and it is at times debilitating. This is then aggravated by estrogen which dilates the uterus and ovaries to dilate so which causes blood to accumulate in the veins. Around 15% of the women with fertility are said to suffer from varicose veins in the pelvis but not all of them suffer from these symptoms. The bones, joints and the muscles get affected due to this condition.

The pain is very dull and it is extremely painful. It is throbbing and is accompanied with a lot of sharp pokes. It is sometimes seen to be worse towards the end of the day. It increases when the women is sitting or standing for a long time and the woman gets relived when she lies down. The pain grows worse during sexual contact and sometimes after it. Low back pain is a major feature of pelvic congestion syndrome. ThereBones Joints Muscles and Pelvic Congestion are aches in the legs, and the menstruation is accompanied by a lot of bleeding and then some times do feel a kind of watery discharge in the vagina and also fatigue. There are mood swings and abdominal bloating alongwith a lot headache.

Doctors normally feel there is a pelvic congestion syndrome when the woman comes with a pelvic pain complaint and an examination of the pelvis does not reveal any kind of abnormality or inflammation.

Dysmenorrheal is a pain that is normally localised in the lower abdominal area and is more pronounced during menstruation. The cause of this condition is really not known but it is found in almost all the women. The pain is normally sharp and is accompanied with cramps. It normally occurs just before the regular monthly period and then reduces after two or three days.

Doctors normally determine the entire diagnosis on the results after examining the symptoms of a physical examination. There are many anti inflammatory non steroidal drugs which are used for this alongwith some low does birth control pills.

Most of the women who have dysmenorrheal have not been able to identify the cause and then the rest of the women have dysmenorrheal due to secondary dysmenorrhea.

Dysmenorrhea painAbout three fourths of women have dysmenorrhea with no identifiable cause (primary dysmenorrhea). The rest have dysmenorrhea due to another condition (secondary dysmenorrhea).

Dysmenorrhea is a condition which results in the condition of pelvic congestion. In primary dysmenorrheal the pain is only during the menstrual cycles when the egg is released. The pain is said to occur due to the prostaglandins that are released during menstruation. Prostaglandins are substances which are very much like hormones and cause a contraction in the uterus and they result in a reduction of blood supply and increase the sensitivity of the nerve endings in the uterus. This causes the pain. It is seen that woman with primary dysmenorrheal have greater levels of prostaglandins.

Thus pelvic congestion occurs due to the mismanagement of bones joints and muscles and is a very common problem in most of the women. It is upto the women to understand this and then seek medical help.
