Default Question I am pregnant and have a venous malformation

Hello,

I am two months pregnant. I have a venous malformation on the right side of my face and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on how pregnancy will affect my venous malformation. It has started to feel sore and swollen and was not sure if it would stay the same or get worse. Please let me know if anyone has any information. Thanks!

I can not really give you advice from experience but my doctor has told me that anytime your hormones change (birth control, pregnancy, etc.) it will cause the venous malformation to grow. He has also said that if I were to get pregnant I may want to consider a C-section as the force of pushing will cause it to expand as well. I am curious as to how you are feeling now? I would very much like to have children and like you my malformation is in the right side of my face. Best wishes.
Lindsey
