Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

We understand that making decisions about contraceptives can be overwhelming due to the expansive options available on the market today. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, one of our essential offerings includes expert counseling on different types of Intrauterine Devices (IUDs). Our specialist healthcare providers will gladly share their knowledge and advice according to each patient’s specific needs – offering insight into hormonal and non-hormonal variations along with individual benefits and potential side effects.

Follow-Up And Monitoring After Insertion

Post-insertion care is crucial for any treatment – especially when it involves reproductive wellness. Therefore, at Women’s Health Group Chicago we offer diligent follow-up consultations and monitoring after an IUD insertion procedure takes place. By thoroughly checking up on patients’ progress within the comfort period post-procedure helps us ensure everything heals as expected while detecting any possible complications early.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Although rare, there may be side effects related to using IUDs that could cause discomfort or even complications in some cases. At Womens Health Group Chicago ensures you get timely support by closely monitoring these symptoms if they arise. From managing common hormonal imbalances such as mood swings or weight gain to handling more critical issues like infections; our professional practitioners are well equipped to handle them all gently yet effectively.

Alternatives To IUDs

Understanding that every woman’s body and lifestyle are unique, the Womens Health Group Chicago strives to provide a holistic approach towards contraception. The specialists are always willing to discuss alternatives to IUDs so patients can reach the best informed contraceptive decision for their well-being. We explore a diverse range of options including oral contraceptives, barrier methods, permanent solutions, or even natural family planning mechanisms according to each patient’s comfort.

Emergency Contraception

The unexpected can happen but rest assured because you aren’t alone when it does. At Women’s Health Group Chicago we offer prompt emergency contraception services aimed at preventing unwanted pregnancies after unprotected sexual intercourse or if another birth control method has failed. Your wellness remains our priority as we guide you with professional advice throughout this critical process within its effective timeframe.

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.
