Default frustration

I have a lymphatic malformation, and was diagnosed early on in childhood. I'm now 20 and still learning more about it. I get pain with my LM around that time of month, and also have severe cramps then, too. I wanted to go on the pill to help it, but I get conflicting information from doctors. Some say it's fine that I do that(using the pill - hormonal treatment), and others say no, it's highly not recommended. I haven't been on the pill because from what my gyno found out, she won't risk putting me on it. I just want to know how hormones affect the LM and whether a person with LM can use hormonal treatments, like the pill, or not. I'm so frustrated with it all. I've been emailing doctors and calling, but haven't gotten real answers. I'm getting so tired of it.
