deep vein thrombosis and contraception

Hi

Have recently been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis and have been taken off the pill - I was using Ginette. Am on wairfaran tablets to thin the blood. What is the next best form of contraception (besides condoms) I could use ??? Would the Mirena be safe....

The Mirena is okay, or the injectable.

Best wishes
