Pain in the pelvis or pain with intercourse (dyspareunia) may result from many conditions involving the intestines, urinary bladder, or the female reproductive organs. A number of women with chronic or frequently recurring pelvic pain suffer from venous disorders which often remain undiagnosed for years. Symptoms may include worsening pain just prior to or during the menses, prolonged pain after intercourse, enlarged veins around the pubic or labial area and may sometimes be associated with leg pain or swelling with exercise. Persisting pelvic pain which is not well explained on the basis of other diagnosed pelvic conditions may warrant evaluation for possible vein disease.
