Varicosities after AVM?

Has anyone been diagnosed with varicosities in the same area as their AVM, especially after embolisation? I have an AVM in my uterus, which has been embolised, and now that I am pregnant again, I have been diagnosed with varicosities (varicose veins) in my uterus! I just wondered if this was a common connection… it seems weird I could have two conditions to do with vessels, in the same body part?

Thanks
Amanda

Hi Amanda. I cannot answer your question. However, there is a sub-group here you may wish to join…

Hello,

I am interested in pregnancy after uterine avm. I am awaiting a diagnosis. I have had much success with holistic approaches and acupuncture. I would appreciate any information. I hope you are well.
