Default LM and hormones

I have pretty severe menstrual cramps and wanted to go on the pill to help with it all. Though I was told that with the Lymphatic Malformation that is not recommended, since it can be affected by it causing it to swell or react to it in some way. I have been given heavy prescription pain medication to help, and it does to a point. But I was wondering for future situations, like in pregnancy, how the LM reacts to the hormone changes. Did anyone have a problem with it?
