Treatment of Varicose Veins of Vagina and Vulva

One in five (20%) of women with leg varicose veins who have had children, have pelvic varicose veins. Many of these women have varicose veins of vagina and vulva.

For years, midwives, nurses and doctors have said nothing could be done. However research over the last 10 years has shown this is wrong.

Women with varicose veins of vagina and vulva have a special pelvic duplex scan. This is called a TVS (transvaginal duplex scan) developed at The Whiteley Clinic.

This ultrasound scan shows which of the veins in the pelvis are causing the problem. Using this scan as a map, the specialists at The Whiteley Clinic can then treat the pelvic veins.

Under local anaesthetic, x-rays are used to guide the catheter into the right veins. Once in position, surgical coils are deployed into the veins, permanently closing them.

Foam Sclerotherapy and Coils

Using a combination of foam sclerotherapy for the smaller veins and coils for the larger veins, the varicose veins of vagina and vulva can be completely cured.
