I am amazement. I am 28 years old and have lived with my hemangioma for all my life. Sure I knew others had hemangiomas but nothing I had ever found sounded like my case. Now that I have found this site I'm almost speechless. I almost can't imagine others living with what I live with.

When I was around 18 the first birth control prescribed to me was YAZ...
My hemangioma is on my chest mostly covering my left breast. When I went on YAZ it was living hell for 3 days. I cried and cried and laid in bed and finally my mom said there's no way she was going to let me put that in my body.

sweet pea talks about her malformation hurting... What does yours feel like?
Mine is like a sharp stabbing in my chest, sometimes deeply painful.
I can't have caffeine either as it makes me feel as though my heart will literally burst through my hemangioma.

All birth controls seem to bother me some but after a week my heart seems to settle down. I have come to like the NuvaRing the most.
