Ovarian Congestion Syndrome (OCS) is a medical condition that affects many women, causing pelvic discomfort and various associated symptoms. At the Vein Center of Arizona, our team of highly skilled doctors specializing in Vascular Medicine understands the impact of this condition on your life and can provide effective treatments to alleviate your symptoms.


Ovarian Congestion Syndrome occurs when blood vessels in the ovaries become dilated and swollen, leading to a feeling of heaviness and pain in the pelvic area. The precise cause of OCS is not fully understood, but it is believed to be associated with hormonal imbalances and the pooling of blood in the veins surrounding the ovaries.

Factors that contribute to the development of Ovarian Congestion Syndrome include pregnancy, obesity, and certain medical conditions that increase intra-abdominal pressure. Additionally, hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can worsen the symptoms experienced by women with OCS.

It is essential to consult with our experienced doctors at the Vein Center of Arizona to accurately diagnose Ovarian Congestion Syndrome and rule out other potential causes for your symptoms.


Ovarian Congestion Syndrome manifests through various symptoms that can have a significant impact on your daily life. These symptoms may include:

  • Pelvic pain and discomfort that worsens during prolonged standing or after physical activity
  • Increased pain before or during menstruation
  • Swelling and bloating in the lower abdomen
  • Urinary frequency or urgency
  • Painful intercourse
  • Varicose veins in the pelvic region, vulva, or thighs

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is crucial to consult with our Vascular Medicine specialists at the Vein Center of Arizona for a personalized evaluation and diagnosis.


Effective treatment options are available at the Vein Center of Arizona to help alleviate the symptoms associated with Ovarian Congestion Syndrome. Your personalized treatment plan may include:
