At Womens Health Group Chicago, we expertly guide you through both IUD insertion and removal. Our medical professionals in Edgewater understand the uniqueness of every woman’s body. They employ patience and precision when inserting or removing your intrauterine device (IUD), ensuring a smooth, minimally discomforting process while prioritizing your health and comfort.
Choosing the right type of IUD can be puzzling for many women. At our clinic, we place an immense focus on patient education to help you choose a contraceptive that perfectly fits your needs. You will receive comprehensive counseling on different types of IUDs available – from hormonal types like Mirena and Skyla to non-hormonal ones such as Paragard; discussing their efficacy, potential side effects, and longevity.
After successfully employing an IUD insertion procedure at our Edgewater facility, monitoring is crucial for ensuring optimal performance as well as mitigating potential complications. That’s why regular follow-up visits are scheduled post-insertion with dedicated check-ups assessing its placement inside the uterus while maintaining a close eye on any adverse signs that might indicate displacement or infection.
We acknowledge that not everyone may have the same experience after getting an IUD inserted. Some women might struggle with side effects such as cramps or irregular bleeding. If this is the case for you, rest assured knowing at Womens Health Group Chicago; handling these obstacles is part-and-parcel of our job too! We manage each situation professionally while offering swift intervention if there ever arises a need due to severe complications.
IUDs aren’t Goliath without David! While they may be an excellent contraceptive method for many women, at Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that one solution does not fit all. We’re always ready to explore numerous safe and effective alternatives such as birth control pills, implants, patches or injections with you if the IUD path isn’t your preferred contraceptive route.
At times of unnerving accidents or contra-indications to standard contraceptives in Edgewater’s female community, emergency contraception serves a critical purpose. Whether it is within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse or even five days later (with Ella), our healthcare professionals at Women’s Health Group Chicago are equipped to provide necessary guidance and promptly deliver the appropriate remedy.
