Hi becellea,

I had congested pelvis during my last two pregnancies. It caused major swelling "down there". It was very painful. LOL . . . my sister once asked me "why are you wearing a pad when you are pregnant?" . . . I told her "its not a pad, I am very swollen" I couldn't believe it was so bad that it was noticeable with clothes on.

I'm not sure if your swelling is in the same location . . . but my doctor said that it was vericose veins. In my case the extreme of it disappeared at the birth of my babies. *phewwwww* I always had pressure and pain around my cycle and when I was standing too long.

But I've never ever heard of anyone else dx'd with it. I'm also not sure if mine was crohn's related as I had no dx of crohn's back then (27 years ago).

I'm sorry you are dealing with this . . . I hope it is short-lived.
