Vulvar veins may arise during pregnancy and may result in pain, heaviness, clotting or bleeding. Vulvar veins can be identified on ultrasound and removed by sclerotherapy. Injections are performed following the application of numbing creams, gels and anaesthesia. Laughing gas (Entonox) can be used simultaneously. Please inform the doctor if you have this problem because these veins sometimes communicate with leg veins and need to be treated when the leg veins are being treated.

Incompetent ovarian veins can result in pelvic congestion syndrome and present with heaviness and pain in the lower abdomen, frequency in urination and painful intercourse. Treatment involves venography and embolization by coils and sclerosants.
