Patient :Hello. My girlfriend has recently had the Mirena birth control coil. She has had some adverse reactions and is having it removed after 3 weeks. She wants to go right back to her previous pill birth control, Marvelon. A nurse told her that she is able to start the Marvelon a week before the removal of the Mirena coil. Is this true? Is she safely able to take these two birth controls at the same time? Thank you
