Infertility Services in Cicero Illinois

Fertility Testing and Diagnosis

Welcome to Women’s Health Group Chicago, your trusted partner in understanding and addressing infertility challenges. We specialize in comprehensive fertility testing and diagnosis, right here in Cicero. Our skilled experts employ cutting-edge technology to evaluate ovulatory function, hormonal balance, tubal patency, uterine contour, and other essential factors integral for conception. Through our detailed diagnostic procedures including hormone tests, exploratory laparoscopy or ultrasound among others we aim to pinpoint potential issues effectively so that an appropriate treatment plan can be designed.

Ovulation Induction and Monitoring

At Women’s Health Group Chicago of Cicero we hold expertise beyond just diagnosis; one of the many available treatments includes Ovulation Induction and Monitoring. This service is especially beneficial for those facing irregular ovulation cycles. Utilizing advanced medications such as Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid), Letrozole (Femara), or injectable FSH drugs like Gonal-F/Puregon/Menopur etc., we stimulate the ovaries to produce mature eggs ripe for fertilization which boosts the likelihood of pregnancy. Furthermore, regular monitoring ensures carefully timed intercourse coinciding with ovulation thereby optimising chances of conception while minimizing side effects.

Intrauterine Insemination

Addressing more complex fertility issues involves advanced techniques like intrauterine insemination – a technique that introduces washed sperm directly into uterus during patient’s fertile period – amplifying probability of impregnation considerably when compared with natural methods. The professionals at Womens Health Group Chicago routinely carry out this highly specialized procedure with exceptional success rates; making dreams come true for countless families based in Cicero.

In-Vitro Fertilization

Womens Health Group Chicago also offers In-vitro fertilization services (IVF) – one of the most potent forms of assisted reproductive technology. In this process, eggs are removed from a woman’s ovaries and fertilized in the lab with partner’s (or donor’s) sperm to develop into embryos which are then transferred back into uterus for implantation and growth. With our state-of-the-art IVF lab in Cicero coupled with highly experienced embryologists and specialists, we strive to turn the possibility of parenthood into reality.

Reproductive Surgery

Sometimes, conception issues may require surgical interventions such as tubal patency checks or ovarian cyst removal. Women’s Health Group Chicago is an expert in providing minimally invasive reproductive surgeries aimed at rectifying defects hampering natural pregnancy conduits thereby ameliorating chances for natural conception or augmenting success rates for fertility treatments like IUI or IVF among others. Trust us to consult your unique situation sympathetically offering optimal solutions that best suit you.

Amidst all clinical services available at Womens Health Group Chicago of Cicero – Counseling & emotional Support constitutes an important part suggesting compassionate approach combined with high end care we render towards our patients.

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.
Dr. Mike is DA BEST!
