What secondary form of contraception besides condoms can I use if I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud?

Mirena (levonorgestrel): I think your bases are well covered. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) is better than the pill in terms of a contraception. Therefore adding something like the pill is unnecessary.
