IUD Services in Chicago Loop Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At the Womens Health Group Chicago, our expert team based in thriving Chicago Loop is well-equipped to handle both IUD insertion and removal procedures. The process may seem intimidating, but with us by your side, we aim to make it as comfortable and smooth as possible. Our compassionate staff fully understand women’s health needs and are ready to guide you through each step of the procedure which can be integral for long-term birth control.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

When considering an Intrauterine Device (IUD), we believe it’s essential that you have complete information about different types of available options. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, our knowledgeable clinicians provide comprehensive counseling around the various types of IUDs including hormonal or non-hormonal devices so that you can make a well-informed decision about what suits your body and lifestyle best.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Our commitment doesn’t end right after your IUD insertion; instead, we ensure comprehensive post-insertion care at Womens Health Clinic in central Chicago Loop. We emphasize personalized follow-ups as they enable us monitor any changes or adaptions following the procedure with ease. This underlines our mission to offer top-tier medical services where adherence to timeline appointments contributes significantly towards maintaining optimal health.

Managing Side Effects and Complications

Our conscientious approach extends into recognizing each woman’s unique reactions post-procedure given not all bodies react similarly after an IUD insertion. Particular symptoms may arise due to individualistic biological factors which mandate efficient management techniques specifically tailored for them. Hence, we are diligent in educating and equipping ourselves on evolving practices enabling us to manage potential side effects inherent with complex gynecologic scenarios more competently.

Alternatives To IUDs

In accordance with our policy of promoting individual choice, Womens Health Group Chicago proffers a comprehensive variety of alternatives to IUDs. Our alternative offerings entail fertility awareness methods, barrier methods and hormonal birth control options among others. Following consultations through which we discern the right fit based on your specifics like health history or future pregnancy plans ultimately ensures methodical resolutions for unique patient cases.

Emergency Contraception

Unpredicted circumstances necessitating emergency contraception can be an incredibly stressful experience. However, knowing you have a reliable clinic in Chicago Loop that provides timely and professional care can dramatically ease this burden. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we provide appropriate advice and services for emergency contraception contributing definitively towards various situations allowing for more judicious decisions..

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.
