You have to consult yout gynae for the best advice regarding contraceptive use. Mirena is a plastic intrauterine device (IUD) that acts as a progestogen reservoir (it contains only progesterone as to Ginette containing oestrogen as well) releasing levonorgesterel into the uterine cavity. It has local effects, but minimal systemic absorbtion, meaning less side effects. You should also consult your gynae regarding postpartum insection. As far as I know it can be removed should you need to.
