My Mirena was supposed to come out two years ago (I know that's bad). I haven't had it removed? because I can't afford a new one to be put in. This is the only form of birth control I can use because of my epilepsy. This is my third Mirena and it has been great. My periods have not started again. I'm 47 and wondering if I'm in menopause? I'm hoping maybe someone would know. Thanks for any help I can get.

Well. the hormonal component will be depleted but the IUD will probably prevent the implantation of an embryo. They were, after all, designed to be a mechanical form of continuous abortion before they added copper and hormones to make your uterus toxic.
