Hi and thanks for using the forum.

It is not unusual for your period to be irregular when starting the Depo shot.  IF you are worried that you could be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test and see what happens.  Since you are already late for your period, you can take a test whenever you are ready.  IF the test is negative, then you can continue with your plan to have the Mirena placed.  IF the test is positive, then you need to see your ob/gyn for an appointment.  good luck and congratulations on your new son.
