Woman has veins in her vagina ‘closed off’ to cure painful sex with boyfriend

A woman has had the veins in her vagina "closed off" after a condition left her with chronic pain every time she got intimate.

Victoria Jenkins, 34, started experiencing stabbing pains during sex around four years ago.

The freelance clothing designer, from north London, was diagnosed with pelvic congestion syndrome.

She was forced to take painkillers so she could have sex with boyfriend Jack Morgan, 32, who she's been with for eight years.

Despite hiding the pain for years before, when it became so intense, Victoria started to do her own research.

However, the procedure couldn't be done on the NHS so she had a vein embolisation performed privately at the Whiteley Clinic.

The procedure involved doctors inserting a tube into her neck, down her body and into her pelvic area while she was awake.

She was given a local anaesthetic on her neck and a small dose of diazepam as the doctors inserted the metal coils into the area.

The 11 coils were inserted inside the tube to travel down to her pelvic veins and scar them to close them off permanently.

Victoria was supposed to have the surgery performed in May but it was postponed until July 25 because of coronavirus.

After a few weeks of healing, she was finally able to have sex with Jack for the first time in three months.

She told FEMAIL: "We've had sex once after I had the operation a week ago and already I could feel a huge difference.

"I was in pain during sex before but the agony of the procedure itself was horrific.

"Even though it was the most painful procedure I've ever experienced, I'm happy I had done it."

Victoria first noticed something wasn't right in 2016 when she started to experience dull, period-like pains all the time.

She said: "I thought it was a cyst on my ovaries. I've had them in the past and the symptoms were similar so I thought it would go.

"But the pain continued and it got to the point where I needed to go and see someone to get some answers.

"Experiencing pain during and after sex isn't normal and I didn't want my relationship to be effected because of it."

A gynaecologist told to Victoria that she was suffering from pelvic congestion syndrome, a medical condition that causes chronic

She tried to cope with the pain before seeking help privately for the condition.

Finally Victoria decided to have the surgery done after going for a consultation with Jack earlier this year.

She detailed: "I blushed at that point and Jack was shocked as I hadn't been honest with him about just how painful it really was."

After she told her partner, the couple didn't have sex for a month.

Then finally once the procedure was over, Victoria was told to wait 48 hours before having sex, but she waited over a week instead.

She concluded: "When we finally had sex the pain was already so much more bearable, especially on the left side of my pelvis.

"The procedure has enabled me to have a normal sex life again with my partner."
