Modern medicine finally understands Pelvic Venous Disorder (PeVD). Also commonly and previously known as Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS), Pelvic Venous Disorder affects almost 20-30% of all women and has only recently been understood to be the result of low oxygen containing blood pooling in the deeper veins of the pelvis. Pressure on the larger deeper veins from nearby structures within the abdomen and pelvis in these people leads to varicose veins around the uterus, the ovaries, the vagina, and other tissues in the pelvis. Re-named as Pelvic Venous Disorder in medical literature only in 2021, the symptoms of chronic pelvic pain, heavy bleeding at menses, painful sexual intercourse, and constant discomfort in the pelvic and lower back arise from these deep pelvic veins.
