How do I know whether I'm depressed, or if it's birth control?

I've started hormonal birth control (Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo) for the first time, and am currently on my third day. I've heard/read of the accompanying depression and mood swings. When can I expect side effects, so that I can assess myself and decide whether or not to continue with the pill? What sort of red flags should I look out for, in case I don't realize I'm being depressive, mood-swingy, or sans sex drive? [more inside]

Is it my IUD or am I just crazy?

Has anyone else had weight and/or emotional problems that they attribute to hormonal birth control, specifically the Mirena IUD? I know there have been several IUD threads – one of them helped convince me to get one. But most of them dealt with questions about getting one, and now, I'm wondering if removing mine would be a good idea. (more inside) [more inside]
