From what I know, that isn't true. That's more related to the Ring or the Pill. From my understanding Mirena begins working immediately, aslong as it is inserted at the right time. I believe it's after or during the end of your period. I'm thinking to ensure there is nothing to be fertilized. In your case you just had your daughter so you didn't ovulate, so I wouldn't be worried. Mirena should have worked immediately....

Take a test to clear your mind!

Also rememebr that Mirena doesn't always prevent fertilization, just implantation.
