[BC filter] Will an IUD (Mirena) be a good option when I didn't like the Nuvaring? Particularly, it lowered my libido and gave me mood swings.

As a follow up to this question
I'm looking at getting an IUD. The things I didn't like about the Nuvaring were that I had an almost non-existant libido and mood swings. I'm currently on a low-dose BCP, which is the best I've found so far for those things, but I'm looking at getting an IUD for the higher protection rate.
1) Have you switched from the NuvaRing to an IUD (hormonal)? What side-effects changed?
2) Have you had an IUD without having had a pregnancy? Good? Bad?
