Sažetak
The advantages ensuing from the high contraceptive efficacy, positive effect on the parameters of the menstrual cycle
as well as other values of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system may play an important role in women’s sexual
life. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system on the quality of
life and sexual functioning of women. The research encompassed 200 women aged between 30 and 45. 52 women using
the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system were qualified to the study as the research group (Mirena Group). The
control groups consisted of 48 women using a different type of intrauterine device (Control Group I – Other IUD) and 50
women using no contraception (Control Group II). A specific questionnaire with a general part concerning socio-demographic
conditions, a part dealing with contraception and Polish version of self-evaluation inventories: Short Form-36
Health Survey, Female Sexual Function Index and Mell-Krat Scale was used as a research tool. Quality of life parameters
for women using the Mirena system were higher than for the control groups, especially in the aspect of general
health, energy/fatigue and emotional well-being. A significant beneficial effect of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine
system on sexual functioning (sexual desire and arousal) was also revealed in the study. Sexual dysfunctions were
diagnosed in 20.8% of Other IUD, 34.7% of Control Group II and 9.6% of Mirena Group. Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine
system increases female quality of life and sexual functioning parameters.
