Pelvic Embolization

Hi All

I have FINALLY found a specialist who is able to perform Pelvic Vein Embolization who is local to myself. Before I get a referral to this specialist from my GP. Could any of you answer the following :

Do you know if it will affect fertility ? - I am only 24

Has anybody gone through this and have any advice ?

It says its performed under local anesthetic but can it be done under General? (I am known to faint and have BP problems under local anesthetic)

Thanks everyone for your Advice :)

Hi I would get a second opinion with the world leader in this.......his name is Professor Whiteley of The Whitely Protocol.....with this sort of thing I would go to the best of the best for his opinion.......yes he's privare the scan is £200.00 and a consultation is £175.00 .......if you can't afford it I would use a credit card.


What part of the country are you based in and is this as an NHS procedure ? you should have a contact ( nurse ) to ask these questions beforehand. It is the kind of information you should receive before you give consent.


You might find it helpful to join the Facebook Pelvic Congestion Syndrome group. There are women on there who've had the procedure.
