My doctor believes I have pelvic congestion syndrome. What is this? Is this rare, or common. Want some advice on this?

Not so simple: Dilated ovarian/uterine veins become engorged with blood causing pain. Female, usually have had multiple pregnancies. Ultrasound/mri findings supporting the diagnosis. It is not a diagnosis of exclusion. It is real. Likely under diagnosed and under treated. The gold standard is mri/mrv, if present the veins are treated much like varicose veins can be.
