We surveyed a total of one hundred and ninety women presenting with small pelvic varicose veins (SPVV). The chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) was revealed in nearly a quarter of the examined patients (24.7%). The women’s quality of life was assessed using the SF-36 questionnaire as a more integrative parameter, having demonstrated that women presenting with SPVV had a substantial decrease in all the components of both physical health and mental well-being. The obtained findings have strongly suggested the necessity of carrying out secondary prevention in women suffering from SPVV, even if there are no clinically pronounced manifestations of the disease.

KEY WORDS: small pelvic varicose veins, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, quality of life.
