Most women in the country suffer from pain in the lower abdomen. Periods and sitting for long hours contribute to the increase in pelvic pain. If the problem persists for more than six months, then it can be pelvic congestion syndrome. One out of every three women in the country suffers from pelvic pain at some point in their lives.
There may be several reasons for pain in the lower abdomen, one of the most common causes of this is the pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). It is seen more in young women. Pelvic congestion syndrome is also called pelvic venous incubation or pelvic venous infection. It is a medical condition in women. Women suffer from extreme pain during this problem. Standing or even ying down does provide any comfort during the time.
Young women who have reproduced are more at risk of developing this problem as they neglect the symptoms which might worsen the disease. The reason for the problem is still not clear, but it is believed that a disturbance in hormone levels might cause it. Women of ages 20 to 45 are more prone to the disease and those who have conceived several times.
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.
