Doctors here are just so freakish about that. I had one implanted in Spain before pg w/ DD and it was the norm. DH says it's the normal method in Africa/Middle East as well.

I've done well woman exams w/ OGA on Fannin for years now. The doctor who I most recently switched to is Carrie Ball, and she seems the most "liberal" of the ones I've seen and she might be willing to do it. Here's there website: http://www.obgynassociates.com/

Are you giving up FAM?

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!

THanks for the suggestion It's hard to even know where to start when looking for a new dr.

I don't know that I'm giving up FAM, I'm exploring other options

Yah, I know what you mean. Another thing you might think about is going to someone who is FROM Europe/Africa/Middle-east/India...they would probably be more open to the idea than their more conservative (aka scared) American counterparts, kwim? The doctor who removed mine before DD thought I was really insane for having it pre-child...

I just wanted to bump this and let you guys know that I saw dr boswell at womens specialists of houston and was impressed with her knowledge and bedside manner, and she didn't have an issue inserting an iud in a nullipara

almadianna - I like Jackie, but she's out of network on my PPO. In network, the iud and insertion only cost me $20. Out of network it's really expensive.
