Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Pelvic congestion syndrome (PKS) is a condition that usually occurs due to abnormal blood flow in the venous (vessel) system in the pelvic area. This condition is characterized by dilation and accumulation of blood in the veins in the pelvic area. Symptoms of PKS may include pain, discomfort, swelling, and sometimes other symptoms in the pelvic area.

The exact cause of pelvic congestion syndrome is not fully understood, but some factors may include:


Pelvic congestion syndrome occurs when the pelvic veins are larger than normal or become blocked, causing blood to fail to maintain normal flow in the pelvic area. This can lead to dilation of the veins in the pelvic area and pain. Symptoms of pelvic congestion syndrome may include:


Chronic pelvic pain: The most common symptom is persistent or recurring pain in the pelvic area. This pain may increase during the menstrual period.
Low back pain: Pain can often radiate to the waist area.
Pain during sexual intercourse: Pelvic pain may increase during or after sexual intercourse.
Dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain): Menstrual pain may be more severe for some women with pelvic congestion syndrome.
Varicose-like veins: Similar varicose veins that occur as a result of the expansion of the veins in the pelvic area.

Diagnosis of pelvic congestion syndrome is made by a doctor and is usually made using imaging tests such as pelvic ultrasonography or computed tomography. Treatment options may include pain management with medications, closing the affected veins with a process called sclerotherapy, or blocking the veins with a process called embolization. Treatment options may vary depending on a person’s symptoms and the severity of their condition.

Prof. Dr. H. Onur Topçu
Gynecology & Obstetrics-In Vitro Fertilization and Advanced Gynecological Endoscopy Specialist



With the opinion of four specialist doctors, whom I had been postponing for years and whom I thought were quite competent in their field, I learned that my condition, which I thought was just a myoma problem, was extra painful due to the varicose veins of the uterus, and only because Mr. Onur, who was very precious, told me that removing myomas would not relieve my aches and pains, caused me anxiety and anxiety during the examination. What I forgot to mention with excitement (for some reason there is a feeling of hesitation in front of the doctor, you know :)), the fact that he listed each of my complaints much more accurately and one after the other made me feel very confident at the first examination. I entrusted myself to him with complete trust and peace and decided to have surgery immediately. I had a very successful surgery that showed a much more comfortable and faster recovery compared to all the people I know around me who had similar illnesses and surgeries. His response to my questions as quickly as possible at all times ensured that I did not experience anxiety during my recovery process. I’m glad I didn’t put it off for so long that fate brought me such an expert. It is a reference to every friend around me who has complaints about gynecological diseases, and with that peace of mind, I strongly recommend it to my fellow women who are looking for the same as the old me. I am very happy to entrust myself to him and my daughters to his precious wife. I am glad our paths crossed, I am truly happy to have met you, our dear doctors.

Der Lehrer von Onur war in jeder Phase des Prozesses, vom Anfang bis nach der Operation, sehr unterstützend und ermutigend. Er hat uns auf die beste und genaueste Art und Weise informiert, indem er alle Details des Prozesses vollständig und klar erklärt hat. Ich möchte meinem Lehrer Onur sehr danken und ihn auf jeden Fall denjenigen empfehlen, die einen Arzt auf diesem Gebiet suchen.
