what could having no libido and having vulvar varicose veins point towards?

Pelvic conjestion.: Pelvic conjestion syndrome (PCS) is characterized by pelvic pain, vulvar varicosities, buttock or posterior thigh varicosities and sometimes pain with intercourse. Decreased libido could be related to discomfort from the PCS but may not be related at all. You should see your OB/GYN and also a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation including an ultrasound and pelvic MRV.

Vulvar varicosities: Vulvar or labial veins are quite common. They often present during pregnancy but can present without pregnancies & can also often persist after pregnancy but to a lesser degree. They may cause pain including pain with intercourse. You may have pelvic venous congestion causing these veins. If you have significant pain then get evaluated for ovarian vein reflux. Libido is likely unrelated to veins.
