Dear, good morning
I have understood your concern and will surely help you. pros versus cons as desired by you.
See estrogen in your ocp may leave some side effects for few days, something similar when you started your ocp long back but it will slowly fade away. it won't adversely effect your routine and life in any major way for long term.
since you are not planning to get pregnant soon and you sometime forget taking the pill then IUD is better choice.
IUD will not interfere in case you have to use any medication in future, whereas ocp may interfere or their effectiveness may get reduced.
cons of IUD - will require regular check for position.
only thing is that your periods will take some time to stabilise with IUD as before ocp you were having heavy flow and extreme cramps. however it will settle down after first period.
final recommendation - I think you can go for IUD and according to research I have gone through discontinue of estrogen based pills will not hamper your routine .
Feel free to ask any questions or to share any additional information
