That is an interesting thought. I hadn't considered how it might affect a woman going through menopause. I guess if your progesterone levels have already dropped off, then it's possible Mirena wouldn't have such a radical effect. I just don't know about that. I'm already dreading menopause because I have a feeling it's not going to be much fun for me. Since I apparently have some very sensitive hormones that don't react well when they're messed with. Good luck to you. I hope you are spared the worst of menopause.
