Whether you choose hormonal or non-hormonal options like Copper T380A, we have proficient counselors who guide you each step of the way—evaluating your lifestyle needs, explaining potential side effects as well as success rates linked with each method—to help you make an informed decision tailored to what best suits your body and future planning necessities.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

We understand how crucial post-insertion care is for women who opt for IUDs. Hence, at Womens Health Group Chicago, we sensitize continual monitoring following your IUD insertion as part of our commitment towards maintaining holistic reproductive care. This includes regular check-ups ideally six weeks after the procedure which allows us to ensure successful placement while discussing any concerns related to symptoms or changes experienced.

Managing Side Effects and Complications

Our job does not stop at delivering reliable healthcare services alone—we also pride ourselves in standing by you once an issue occurs by managing side effects inherent in the use of intrauterine devices (IUD). Side effects may range from cramping, irregular bleeding patterns amongst others—it is completely natural but rest assured under vigilant supervision with effective solutions offered can generate peace-of-mind relating these minor complications post IUD insertion.

Alternatives To IUDs

Our focus at Womens Health Group Chicago goes beyond providing IUD services; we also counsel on various alternatives to intrauterine devices. When you consult us, our team helps you understand the pros and cons of other contraceptive methods such as birth control pills, patches, rings or even barrier options like condoms and diaphragms. Our goal is to navigate through these multiple choices with transparency allowing you space for making an empowered decision compatible with your lifestyle needs.

Emergency Contraception

Designed specifically for instances when regular contraceptives fail or are not used correctly, emergency contraception serves as a crucial backup plan in preventing unintended pregnancies. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we provide comprehensive information about your viable EC options: pill form or intrauterine intervention—guiding especially around misconceptions surrounding its usage while reflecting upon actual effectiveness—you can expect timely support under unexpected circumstances distilling maximum assurance!

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.
