Mirena Vs Birth Control Pill
If you have had the mirena (levonorgestrel) removed and the very next day you start the birth control pill will you be safe?
Not necessarily: Mirena (levonorgestrel) and birth control pills work in different ways. Whether you would be safe would depend on what day of your menstrual month you had the Mirena (levonorgestrel) removed.

IUD/Implants > Pills: Regardless of your age, blood pressure, family history, or reactions to other birth control, the most effective and safest methods of birth control are long-acting progestin-only methods, such as the implant or the hormonal IUD, which decrease rates of endometrial cancer and decrease bleeding. They're safe, reversible, and don't affect weight gain/mood. They're almost as good as getting sterilizedSee 1 more doctor answer
The one you use : The best birth control method is the one you will use consistently and correctly. That is going to depend on the person. For some it is the pill, the patch or nuvaring. For others the depoprovera shot. Many like nexplanon, paragard or mirena (levonorgestrel). Condoms and spermicide are an option. Research your options and choose what is right for you. Avoid pregnancy until you are ready.See 1 more doctor answer
Hormonal Methods: Typically, the levels of sex hormones in a female rise and fall in a cyclic pattern. This is what causes a woman's cycle and controls ovulation. Common birth control methods such as the pill or patch that use hormonal regulation give a constant amount of hormones. This keeps the levels high and prevents the natural cyclic pattern therefore preventing ovulation.

Many benefits to bcp: The birth control pill has many benefits. It prevents pregnancy, but also helps the period to be regular, lighter and less painful. For some women it can improve pms and can improve breast lumpiness, though in a few women it can make pms worse or cause mood swings. Women who stay on the pill longer than 5 years have a lifetime decrease in risk of ovarian and uterine cancer by up to 50%.
Which did you miss?: While it is very important to take the pills daily and at the same time every day, many people slip up every once in a while. And, most of the time, it's not such a big deal. You should take the missed pill as soon as you realize you missed it. Even if that means taking 2 pills at once. Look at your package information for detailed information about how to make up for missing more than one pill.
