IUD Insertion and Removal

At the Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that when it comes to birth control methods, every woman has unique needs.

Our team of qualified OBGYNs takes comprehensive steps to ensure a comfortable environment during these procedures. We place emphasis on maintaining minimal discomfort for you – our patient – while ensuring maximum efficiency and safety.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Understanding different types of IUDs is crucial for making an informed decision about your sexual health. Thus, Womens Health Group Chicago offers comprehensive counseling sessions where our knowledgeable consultants explain each type – hormonal (like Mirena) or non-hormonal (like ParaGard). We provide practical insight into how they work as well as realistic expectations so you can make the best choice possible for your body based on your goals and lifestyle factors.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

We at Womens Health Group Chicago believe that healthcare shouldn’t stop after implementing a solution. Accordingly, post-IUD insertion follow-ups are given equal priority here. At regular intervals following procedure completion, scheduled checkups allow our doctors to assess if your body comfortably adjusted to the newly inserted device or not? Is everything going smoothly? Your consistent comfort is part of what makes us one of the best choices in Addison.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

While IUDs are generally safe with minimal complications, at times side effects may occur post-insertion. Despite their rarity, side-effects like cramps or irregular bleeding need immediate medical attention from seasoned OBGYN specialists present at Womens Health Group Chicago clinic who can effectively manage these issues before becoming more significant problems.

Alternatives To IUDs.

Though IUDs are a highly effective contraceptive tool, they may not necessarily suit everyone. If you’re reluctant about using an intrauterine device or have medical restrictions that prevent the use of one, we offer counseling sessions on alternatives like oral pills, implantable devices, patches and injections. A welcoming environment backed by non-judgmental professionals at Womens Health Group Chicago will assist you in weighing the right options while keeping your health as top priority.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
