IUD Services in Darien Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

Welcome to the Women’s Health Group Chicago, where we pride ourselves on advanced healthcare practices exclusively for women. Our team of dedicated professionals is well-versed on the intricacies of IUD insertion and removal procedures. We understand that every woman has a unique set of needs and circumstances that can affect her body in diverse ways. Therefore, our approach relies heavily upon a thorough initial consultation followed by a customized treatment plan prepared just for you.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

We take it as an important part of our role in your health journey to guide and educate you about various types of intrauterine devices (IUDs) available today. Whether it be hormonal or non-hormonal; each type holds its own pros and cons depending on your specific need. You can count on us to help facilitate this crucial decision-making process under an ambiance defined by understanding, concern, empathy, confidentiality – all judiciously merged with professional guidance.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

Your wellbeing doesn’t end at successful procedure completion; rather, it takes its first steps towards durability right then. At Womens Health Group Chicago we conduct periodic follow-ups after an IUD insertion because early detection significantly reduces the chance of complications becoming serious problems down the line. Coupled with regular monitoring through systematic check-ups adapted to work around your schedule for minimum disruption while ensuring optimum health care results.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Our caring team works diligently not only to avoid but also manage potential side effects tied with any type of contraceptive device including irregular periods, pain during intercourse or bleeding between periods etcetera. It’s worth mentioning here that very few women experience such side effects over time once their bodies adapt to new conditions.. However if ever needed 24/7 assistance is readily available, because we realize emergencies can’t and won’t wait.

Alternatives To IUDs

Though the safety and ease associated with an IUD make it a popular choice, we also respect women who prefer alternative contraceptive methods. Therefore in a stride towards embracing diversity of choice all our consultation sessions ensure conversation about alternatives to an IUD such as birth control pills or shots, vaginal rings or emergency contraception which might better match your preference.

Emergency Contraception

Our services at Womens Health Group Chicago extend beyond routine procedures into emergency coverages which certainly include Emergency Contraception options. Whether you missed using a regular contraceptive method; experienced contraceptive failure or sex was forced upon you – quick intervention is paramount for prevention of unwanted pregnancy; Your call will be entertained accordingly with high priority irrespective of the time stamp.

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.
