Paragard Questions and Ob/Gyn Recommendations for Boston, MA

Hey everyone!

I've been lurking on this site for a while now, debating whether or not an IUD is for me. You all are really helpful and honest about your experiences which I really appreciate and admire. I'm 22, have an awesome partner, monogamous, and never had kids. I've previously been on the pill and have stopped to see what my actual period is like. I really like being off hormones and am considering a Copper IUD (paragard since I'm in the US)- except I'm scared. I'm an anxious person and a control freak so I have trouble trusting a little copper thing in my body.

I'm most concerned about expulsion, perforation and migration. However, I would feel better if I found an ob/gyn I liked. I went to one for a consultation for the IUD but she made me feel uncomfortable and was dismissive about my concerns. I was wondering if anyone in here was from the Boston area and had a good experience with their ob/gyn, NP or midwife?
