IUD Services in Chicago Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

The expert team at Women’s Health Group Chicago is highly specialized in IUD (Intrauterine Device) insertion and removal. As a non-invasive, reversible contraceptive choice, IUDs have seen increasing popularity amongst women of various ages in Chicago. Our skilled health care providers ensure comfortable, safe procedures for both insertion and removal of IUDs. With precision-based practice honed by years of experience, our doctors aim to make the process tension-free.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Recognizing that each woman’s needs are unique, we provide insightful counseling on different types of intrauterine devices available at our clinic based in Chicago. Varieties include hormonal such as Mirena or Skyla that release progestin to prevent pregnancy or copper like Paragard which works sans hormones. Armored with comprehensive knowledge about each type’s benefits and possible side effects, our professionals guide you through your decision-making process ensuring an informed choice best suiting your lifestyle.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Maintaining utmost dedication towards women’s wellbeing post-procedure is paramount to us at Womens Health Group Chicago. We arrange regular follow-ups after the initial procedure to track the successful transition within your body with priority also given on resolving any discomfort promptly if it arises during this period. Scheduled monitoring helps us identify early signs related to improper adjustments ensuring swift..preventative measures guaranteeing overall wellness.

Managing Side Effects and Complications

While safety rates are higher with IUDs than other contraceptives some might still face mild complications such as cramping or spotting especially right after the procedure; severe ones being rare yet plausible like device expulsion/migration from its original place etcetera triggering pelvic pain; infection possibly due to post-insertion practices rather than product per se. Our qualified healthcare professionals at Womens Health Group Chicago adept in managing these side effects with tailored medical approaches assure smoother transitional experiences for every patient.

Alternatives to IUDs

In agreement that one size does not fit all, we offer alternatives to IUD if it is deemed unsuitable or personal preferences differ. Choices such as birth control implants, a ring placed within the vagina releasing hormones inhibiting ovulation, and contraceptive injections are some of the varied options our care providers educate you about ensuring comfort, safety and effectiveness remain key indicators when picking an alternative.

Emergency Contraception

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, understanding each individual’s needs and providing services that cater dynamically is part of our ethos. For emergencies involving contraception failure or unplanned incidents leading to possible conception risk; we have provisions such as ‘morning-after’ pills effective up until 72 hours post coital interaction dramatically reducing potential pregnancy occurrence. We discerningly advocate education authentication on its usage being an emergency option rather than regular contraceptive measure aiming a balance between safety and convenience.

I’ve had the absolute best experience here at Women’s Health Group. I often get anxious when visiting doctors, but Lexi and the team here have always made me feel very safe and relaxed. I had to get some blood work done and they drew my blood on-site at the clinic, which was super convenient! I was encouraged to lay down and rest afterwards for as long as I needed, and I never felt rushed. I’ve also gotten an IUD here and it was a million times easier than I expected. Lexi is just fantastic and talked me through the whole process! The team here will do everything in their power to help you receive the care you need, and I highly recommend this clinic.
