varicosity of the pelvis during pregnancy Symptoms of varicose disease in the pelvic region are not always visible, and therefore this ailment is a serious problem for a pregnant woman. If varicose on the legs is immediately noticeable and felt, the pathological process that occurs in the pelvic organs, imperceptibly creates a threat of rupture of the veins. As a consequence - the emergence of a threat of complications during pregnancy. Varicosity in this area of ​​the body can have consequences after childbirth. Because of the rupture of veins and bleeding, painful sensations often occur during defecation. One of the consequences is anemia.

Why there is varicose veins of the pelvis?

Venous insufficiency contributes to the appearance of varicose veins. There is a hereditary predisposition of the organism to varicose veins. Pregnancy in this case becomes a start to the development of an unpleasant problem. Another theory of the appearance of varicose veins. During the "interesting situation" the amount of blood in the body of a woman is already significantly increasing in the first trimester. The maximum rates were fixed at the 36th week of pregnancy: the amount of blood increases by 40%. This volume exerts a strong pressure on the blood vessels. The cardiac muscle during the "launch" of blood from the artery gives a strong push to move it through the body. Further advancement of blood through the veins is facilitated by valvular vessels. During pregnancy, valves can not cope with the increased volume of blood. Consequence - the venous blood stagnates and is thrown back. The reason for this phenomenon is the weak muscle fibers of the veins. Stagnation of blood becomes the cause of the inflammatory process. Thus, a varicose disease of the body, including the small pelvis, is formed.
Often, varicose veins of the small pelvis form on the vulva and perineum. During pregnancy, the uterus increases and after the 36th week prevents the movement of venous blood through large vessels. Because of this, the bloodstream finds a by-pass and moves through weak small vessels. As a consequence - the fullness of the veins and the formation of varicose veins. After childbirth, often, everything returns to normal, varicose veins recede.

Symptomatic of varicose veins in the pelvic area

To treat varicose veins in this area can only be conservative methods. It is desirable that the patient undergoes a course under the supervision of physicians in the hospital. In the case of such a diagnosis, various phleboprotectors are prescribed for future mothers: detraleks, venoruton and ginkor-fort. But these drugs can be taken only from the third trimester of pregnancy.

Among modern methods of treatment - the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. They are prescribed to stop severe pain. Use them must be very cautious, during treatment to minimize physical stress. Doctors recommend that you keep your feet on the hill more often and wear an elastic bandage.
During pregnancy, varicose veins of the pelvis negatively affect the work of uteroplacental blood flow. Because of this, the baby receives less oxygen. The consequence of this phenomenon can be chronic fetal hypoxia. Rarely do premature births occur.
Since the symptoms of blood stagnation in the small pelvis with varicose are not pronounced, for accurate diagnosis, experts recommend that the future mother undergo a vaginal ultrasound. During the study, the doctor can detect nodes and enlarged veins that have accumulated in the internal organs of the sexual sphere of a woman.
