Almost all of the vagina or vulva varicose veins (varicose veins) is derived from varicose veins in the pelvis. There are two ovaries in the pelvis called ovarian Each has a very long vein called the vena ovaries - one on the right and one on the left. Ovarian vein to take blood from the ovary back into a large vein so it can be pumped back to the heart.
If the valves stop working in the blood vessels, veins around the ovaries become dross besart - a condition called "ovarian varicocele" - or pelvic congestion syndrome.
There are two other blood vessels in the pelvis can also - called the internal iliac vein. located at the bottom of the pelvis and can cause the same problem. However, if the branches of these blood vessels are affected, can cause hemorrhoids or varicose veins around the buttocks and anus.
Causes of vaginal and vulvar varicose veins is mainly due to pressure from the uterus to hypogastric and iliac vein. The large intestine is too full due to constipation is also an important factor in the onset of this problem.
Besides the increased hormones during pregnancy will make a weakened blood vessel wall which causes enlargement. Usually if the artifacts vaginal varicose veins during pregnancy, it will appear varicose veins in the legs as well.
Besides the condition of pregnancy, varicose veins in the vagina can also be caused by consumption of corticosteroid drugs and the presence of disturbances or abnormalities in blood vessels which makes it easy to be weak so that varicose veins appear.
Position stand sitting for long periods of time is another factor that supports.

What are the symptoms of varicose veins vagina or vulva?
Symptoms associated with varicose veins vagina or vulva can be divided into two main groups:
Symptoms associated with its own blood vessels
Associated symptoms of venous reflux in the pelvis (pelvic venous congestion or pelvic congestion syndrome)
1 - Symptoms of varicose veins vulva or vagina
Varicose veins in the vagina or vulva can be very embarrassing. This makes a person very uncomfortable during intercourse. If large enough, they can actually be seen hanging so embarrassing when wearing a bikini or underwear models G string - and if very large may make it difficult to urinate and can inhibit sexual relationship.
2 - Symptoms of pelvic veins and pelvic varices (veins PLT hip / pelvic congestion syndrome).
Pelvic varicose veins in women can push one of the pelvic structures causing symptoms. Depending on how big his veins can cause the following symptoms: sensation of pain in the pelvis, discomfort during sexual intercourse "dyspareunia".
There are several tests that suggested, but only one is currently the "Gold Standard" test - transvaginal color duplex ultrasound.
Several tests can be done to diagnose:
Transvaginal color duplex ultrasound
This is a standardized test that shows the flow in blood vessels in the pelvis, and does not require needles or x-ray. But only accurate when performed by highly experienced operators duplex
External color duplex ultrasound (on skin)
although it sounds much better conduct "external" scan instead of transvaginal scan, blood vessels are located too far inside and angles are less detectable
MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging
This test can show a large pelvic varicose veins and use the techniques of blood flow, could see some of the flow in blood vessels. However, expensive and some patients may feel tightness when performed MRI scanner.
Venogram (X-ray of blood vessels with the injection of contrast)
Venogram is important in or TREATMENT vaginal and pelvic varicose veins, but not a very good test to diagnose or investigate the circumstances of inii. But this should be using X-ray (radiation) around the ovaries, must use the injections and so invasive and more expensive than duplex ultrasound
CT (or CAT Scan - Computerized Axial Tomography)
CT has a lot of the same weakness as an MRI - and this is not done on patients with claustrophobia syndrome, and this examination using X-rays, which can cause the radiation to the pelvis and ovaries
Until now there is no special tool to prevent vaginal varicose veins in pregnant women. But if pregnant women diligently picked up the foot by placing it on a pillow when napping or reading a book, a bit much to help blood flow. This method is proven to reduce the burden that must be supported by legs. Avoid the use of shoes, preferably with a maximum of 2 cm to the right of blood flow was obstructed. Then when you sleep, try not to lie in just one position to avoid pressure on blood vessels in one place.
