Sjogren's and IUD

I am being tested now for sjogren's . Also due to severe osteoporosis, and intolerance of bisphos. I am starting hrt. My question is that with my symptoms of sjogren's and post meno-incl. very dry and thin vag/uterus tissue--I would think that for the progestrin part of my hrt, I would be better off not doing it with an IUD. Since I still have a uterus, I need to do the progesterone along with the estrogen. I am doing an estrogen patch and would like the progesterone IUD because its effects are supposed to be local and less dangerous.But, I am thinking with my thin,dry tissue that the IUD may be asking for trouble. Any thoughts? I see the gyn soon and won't have my sjogren's lip biopsy by that time-so won't be able to tell her if I actually do have sjogren's or not then. I am just wondering if any sjogren's people have been ok with an IUD , or if any one with sjogren's has any thoughts that might help me? TIA
