Alternative birth control

So I'm strongly considering not using hormonal birth control anymore because I am starting to believe that it has severely affected my libido. I just don't have a sex drive anymore.  It's kind of starting to drive me crazy, because my birth control is working, but only because I never have sex anymore!

So I'd really like to go off these pills, however:
  • My boyfriend and I really dislike condoms
  • My boyfriend and I really don't want to have a baby right now
  • My boyfriend and I want to have a baby SOMEDAY, so sterilization is out of the question
I'm beginning to think my only option is an IUD, but I'm scared because I've read about all kinds of terrible reactions to them. And I wouldn't be able to use my beloved Diva Cup anymore.  Are there any other forms of birth control that don't involve hormones that are very effective?

I'll probably end up getting an IUD, but I want to explore all my options...

Thank you!
