Can hormones in Mirena (levonorgestrel) cause the linea nigra?

Can hormones in Mirena (levonorgestrel) cause the linea nigra?

Unusual: It's more common with combination hormones, especially with the higher dose pills, and of course in pregnancy. I've not seen it with Mirena (levonorgestrel) since the amount of systemic hormone (amount in your body's circulation) is very small.

What makes stimulating the substantia nigra cause depression?

Dopamine: Stimulation (presumptively by amphetamines) causes a release of dopamine. If this is "supraphysiological" - i.e., more than the body would normally account for - you can end up with a Dopamine deficit. This is the same think as Cocaine addicts have after a run on cocaine, or crank or meth addicts have after a run. The good news is that the body can and will build it back up if allowed to. ...Read more

Period slight irregular.Multiple small cysts on ovaries. Day 21: progesterone 6.25nmol/l, LH 19.72miu/ml, FSH 7.45miu/ml, Prolactin 133.13 mu/l. Pcos?
