Hyperhidrosis of feet and hands. Using Lontophoresis machine. Have Mirena implant. Safe to use the machine?

Hi Dr Grief, I have a tricky question for you....I have hyperhidrosis of the feet and hands, I am 43 years old. I am treating myself with an Iontophoresis device that I have bought from he USA. I understand that you cannot use the Iontophoresis machine if you have an IUD , because of metal parts in the IUD I have Mirena implant. Does the MIrena contain any metal parts, do you know if it is safe to use the Iontophorsis with a Mirena Thanks
