In brief: To prevent STDs
Not to improve the pregnancy prevention but always a good idea for sexual transmitted disease prevention.
The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is one of the most effective forms of birth control even besting the results of a tubal ligation.

In brief: Always a good idea
Iud's can increase the risk of infection and condoms will decrease the chance of spreading infections.
Also a good idea to use 2 methods for contraception because nothing reversible is effective 100% of the time.
