caroline.I used to take Apri, and the only problems I had was my mood swings were more severe than any other time in my life, and I usually just felt gross. I switched to the Mirena IUD with zero problems. My boyfriend noticed my mood leveled out and I was way happier in only a matter of days. It worked really well for me. Getting it in kinda sucked for about 15 minutes (like bad cramps, but not horrible) then I just chilled for a day, was perfectly fine to hop on a plane the next day, then wear 5 inch heels to a wedding the next.. I think I got especially lucky, but I love this thing. No more refills, bloating, crazy tears out of nowhere or remembering to do it every day. Also no babies.
