The aim of this study was to determine the effect of continuous intrauterine release of progestin on the uterine artery pulsatility index (PI) in women on postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The voluntary participants, 13 symptomatic postmenopausal women received transdermal estradiol (50 micrograms/day) for 1 month before combining the levonorgestrel-releasing (20 micrograms/day) intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) with estrogen replacement therapy.
