What Are Genital Veins?

Men and women can develop varicose veins in the genital area. While you may not be comfortable talking about these veins, they can be very uncomfortable, so don’t let embarrassment keep you from getting help!

Some men develop a varicose vein in the scrotum. Women can develop varicose veins around the vagina and vulva. These pelvic varicose veins often occur in pregnancy, and sometimes go away after delivery, but they also affect non-pregnant women. Varicose genital veins can be caused by genetics, pregnancy, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle.

If you have uncomfortable, swollen veins in the genital area, schedule a consultation at Bellamah Vein Center. Dr. David Bellamah has the experience and expertise to treat these veins safely and effectively using a procedure called sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy for genital veins can be done in our comfortable office setting in Missoula or Kalispell.

In sclerotherapy, a tiny needle is used to make multiple injections of a solution (called a sclerosant) into the vein. This solution causes the vein walls to stick together and then seal shut. The vein can no longer hold blood and is eventually absorbed by the body. It will take several weeks for the treated veins to fade and disappear. Most cases require a series of treatments scheduled a few weeks apart.
