can't decide which iud is right for me!

hey!

SO, SOOOO HAPPY to find this community. i have been researching for the perfect iud for months and still don't know which one would be right for me. basically, i want an iud that doesn't change a thing about me (both mentally & physically), except maybe help me with lighter periods/less cramps.

i'm 26, nulliparous and have NEVER been on birth control.

- i do not want to deal with mood swings (i'm emotional enough/have had a history of depression - i see a therapist weekly)
- my periods are HEAVY - where those super ultras only last 3-4 hours during the first couple days of my period
- my cramps are painful
- i have great skin and an incredible sex drive (my guy and i will have sex 3x a day!!)
- call me vain, but i do not want to gain weight

i'm afraid the horomones in mirena will mess me up, but i'm also afraid the paragard will make my period/cramps even worse.

what would you all suggest? any advice/comments would be much appreciated! xx
