Default Re: Pelvic AVMs?

Hi, my daughter I and I just returned from the doctor who wants her to go on the hormone provera to help regulate her periods. I have read that if you have AVM's then you should never go on any hormones, would that include provera? Her doctor (who I didn't necessarily like) said that you had to make compromises and one of the compromises was to take the chance with my daughter taking Provera or have her bleed uncontrollably and possibly have cancer from having irregular periods. He said that she had "unopposed" estrogen (whatever that means) To me his statements did not make any sense. Does anybody have any knowledge of how provera acts on the body and AVM's and is it safe? Thanks for any help that you can give. Sarah
