Edema has many causes.

Pitting edema is a condition where the application of pressure to the skin causes an indentation of the skin which persists for several seconds to minutes after the pressure is released. Pitting edema can be serious or insignificant.

There is one type of pitting edema which affects women around the age of menopause, known as idiopathic edema, and is of a non-specific cause. It is evidenced in woman who do not have a histoy of liver, heart and/or kidney disease. This condition is really nothing to worry about.

This site describes the condition http://www.med.miami.edu/patients/glossary/art.asp?ArticleKey=12699#idiopathic
