What Causes it?
Changes in the hormones, weight and anatomy of the pelvic area during pregnancy pressurise the ovary nerves and weaken the walls of the veins. During pregnancy, the estrogen levels weakens its walls. When the veins of the ovaries spread, the valve is not completely closed. This causes the blood to flow back into the veins, also known as reflux, resulting in the increase of the amount of blood in the Pelvic region.
