Pelvic Congestion

Pelvic congestion syndrome – or PCS – causes chronic pelvic pain in women. This pain usually feels like a deep, dull pelvic ache. It may be worse after upright positions – like sitting, standing, walking and running – or after activities involving the Valsalva Maneuver – like weightlifting and singing.
