HELLO

My only son is 35 years old. My pregnancy awoke my AVM and it became 'wild' i started to bleed after my son was born and got very painful headaches and bleeding. I am being treated in NYC since 2006 by Dr. Gregory Levitin and Dr. Rafael Ortiz, great doctors both! My father who also was a doctor BEGGED me not to have any more children, he believed that the hormonal changes in my body were the cause of my AVM 'awakening'. I obey my dad and only had one son, Which I do not regret that decision. As of now other hormonal changes like menopause, stress have my AVM in a constant change of size and condition. Pregnancy and AVM do not mix am I convinced.
Good luck to you.
