did anyone on mirena (iud) get greasy skin?

my skin has always been so dry and i had to use alot of lotion/cream every day even in the summertime. now i have had the iud since dec. '09 and recently my skin has become oily, especially on my forehead. could this be from the hormones? i have stopped my period and i am nursing (but this never happened when i was nursing the other 2 kids, that's why i think it might be from the iud). and any tips on dealing with oily skin? i'm not used to that lol

  • The best thing you can do is cleanse, tone and moisturise with products suited to your skin type.  The good news is that oily skin is the best anti-ager there is.
