Mirena + birth control pills?

I've had a Mirena for almost two years now. I recently developed a few health issues for which my doctor put me on birth control pills (Microgestin Fe 1.5/30). She did this without removing the IUD, for reasons I won't go into here 'cause then I'd be writing y'all a novel.

Anyway, I forgot to ask her what this means for my chances of pregnancy prevention. Will these two things work together or no? I'm freaking out a little because I know that one of the main ways Mirena works is by thinning uterine lining to prevent implantation, and the birth control pills stop that from happening. I know that as long as I follow the directions I shouldn't ovulate while on the pills, but supposing that did happen, then what?
