IUD in East Hazel Crest

IUD Services in East Hazel Crest Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer specialized services in IUD insertion and removal to the residents of East Hazel Crest. This procedure involves placing a small, T-shaped device into the uterus to provide long-term protection against pregnancy. Our experienced healthcare professionals ensure that this process is carried out with utmost safety and minimal discomfort. In instances where the IUD needs to be removed or replaced, our team will guide you through every step, prioritizing your comfort and well-being throughout.

Counseling on Different Types of IUDs

We understand it can be challenging choosing the right type of IUD as there are various options available – each with its benefits. As part of our dedicated service in East Hazel Crest, Womens Health Group Chicago provides comprehensive counseling sessions on different types of intrauterine devices (IUDs). Our knowledgeable staff provide personalized advice based on individual health history, fertility goals, lifestyle considerations among other factors.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Insertion is only one aspect; monitoring post-IUD implantation is pivotal for maintaining optimal sexual health. At Women’s Health Group Chicago servicing East Hazel Crest women, routine follow-ups after insertion are essential aspects of care we uphold meticulously. These regular checks serve to monitor how well you are adapting to your new contraceptive device while ensuring that it remains correctly positioned until contraception is no longer desired.

Managing Side Effects and Complications

While an effective method for limiting unplanned pregnancies, some users may experience side effects from using an IUD – these can range from mild discomfort to more serious complications. Our quality care at Womens Health Group Chicago caters directly towards managing any side effects caused by using IUDs including abdominal pain or unusual discharges alongwith providing necessary guidance around emergency situations such as displaced or missing strings.

Alternatives to IUDs

While IUDs offer long-term contraception, we understand that they may not be a suitable solution for everyone in East Hazel Crest. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our aim is providing you the choice in reproductive health. This includes offering comprehensive guidance on alternative methods of birth control including oral contraceptives, patches, rings or injectable forms and understanding which one fits best with your unique lifestyle and requirements.

Emergency Contraception

In circumstances where unplanned pregnancy needs to be avoided outside regular contraceptive options, emergency contraception becomes vital. Women’s Health Group Chicago provides professional consultation services in East Hazel Crest about available emergency contraceptive solutions such as morning-after pills or copper-IUD insertion post intercourse. These solutions are effective but it’s important to reach out quickly – timing could largely dictate efficacy rates of these emergency measures.

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.
