I just read in the latest Mothering Mag about postpartum depression and links to elevated copper levels. Does anyone know if using a copper IUD might have links to depression?

In this website it lists all the possible effects of different metals. I have the copper IUD and I'm not feeling myself recently and thought it might be the cause...plus the heavier and more painful periods, I don't like at all so I was thinking of having it removed but then I think that maybe it's just me being stressed. I'm still undecided.
