1 in 3 (30%) of women with chronic pelvic pain get misdiagnosed and receive no treatment!
We have had numerous women with pelvic pain (along with the other symptoms commonly associated with PCS), emotionally break down when we provide them with the correct scans and are able to provide them with an accurate diagnosis of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS), along with a possible solution – Pelvic Vein Embolisation.
One of the numerous things that can mentally bring someone down is by being palmed off by doctor after doctor. Constantly being either incorrectly diagnosed or just told that there is nothing wrong with you by a professional who either does not understand or know about pelvic congestion.
In light of #MentalHealthAwarenessDay, as when it comes to most conditions, any person who has the symptoms and signs of pelvic congestion syndrome needs to obtain as much information as they can about their condition, and then assess all sources for credibility.
Professor Mark Whiteley has gone to the extent of publishing a book on Pelvic Congestion Syndrome – Chronic Pelvic Pain and Pelvic Venous Disorders. One of the ONLY publications available based on this condition.
This book is for anyone with the following
– Suspected pelvic congestion syndrome
– aching of dragging in the pelvis when standing or sitting that gets better when lying down
– deep discomfort on sexual intercourse that nobody can find a cause for
– low abdominal pain, central, right or left, that no one can find a cause for
– leg varicose veins with varicose veins arising from the top of the thigh near the vulva/vagina
– varicose veins of the vulva/labia/vagina
– varicose veins around the perineum or buttocks or backs of thighs
