Levonorgestrel (0) for contraception / birth control

After an ectopic pregnancy on the copper coil, I switched to the Mirena and I'm now on my second one, after a planned pregnancy. While it's great that I hardly menstruate at all, I've definitely noticed an effect on my "personality". I am a lot more anxious and emotional. Sometimes I don't even recognise myself when I overreact to some things. All really quite worrying. My libido is also really low. And a few times a year I experience palpitations, which I have since found out can be a side effect of the mirena. I'm seriously considering having the Mirena removed.
