Vaginal & Vulvar Varicose Veins Treatment with Contour Clinics


Symptoms of Vaginal & Vulvar Varicose Veins

The most obvious symptoms are having visible veins around the vulva or inner thigh. However not all women will have visible signs. However nearly all will have pain and heaviness in this area.

Main Symptoms to Look for

  • Pain, a dull aching pain in the lower back and pelvis
  • Pain in the Vaginal Area that is worse after standing or exertion.
  • Swelling and Itching in the area
  • A Feeling of Heaviness in the groin area

Treatment of Vaginal and Vulvar Varicose Veins

The most effective treatment for vulvar varicosities is with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. This procedure is performed by our specialist doctor at Contour Clinics. It requires use of an advanced ultrasound machine as well as careful isolation of the pelvic and vaginal veins.

Treatment involves injection a sclerosant into the veins causing damage to them. The sclerosant hardens the veins eventually leading them to die and be absorbed and removed by the body.

Once treatment has been performed any congestion and symptoms associated with the build up of the pooled blood should resolve.

How are Vaginal & Varicose Veins Diagnosed

Pelvic Varicose Veins are easily identified by an ultrasound that we can perform for you in our clinics. It involves scanning the groin and upper thigh area with a high frequency ultrasound probe. This can accurately diagnose whether vaginal varicosities exist and the cause of them. In many patients vaginal and vulvar varicose veins will be present without obvious symptoms, but pelvic varicose veins are easily identified with the ultrasound.

For patients receiving treatment for abnormal veins in the legs, screening for varicose veins in the groin could help identify the source of the problem veins in the lower legs.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
