Hi Jenny, My daughter has an AVM and she has an IUD (Mirena). It only contains progesterone as estrogen really affects vascular malformations. Since she started using it, she is not experiencing the same problems that she had when she was on the pill even though it was a progesterone only pill.
Hope that this helps.
