Our skilled gynecologists are proficient in both procedures to ensure minimal discomfort for our patients. The decision to use intrauterine devices (IUDs) as a form of contraception should be made with detailed insight and understanding; that’s why our expert team conducts an all-inclusive consultation before the procedure.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Understanding your options is critical when it comes to selecting the right contraceptive method. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we provide comprehensive counseling on the different types of IUDs available. Whether it’s hormonal IUDs such as Mirena, Skyla, Liletta or non-hormonal options like Paragard Copper T, each has its own potential benefits and side effects which we’ll thoroughly discuss based on your unique needs.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

We want you to feel confident about choosing an IUD for your contraceptive needs. Therefore, after the initial insertion procedure at Womens Health Group Chicago, we follow up with routine check-ups specifically designed around monitoring the device’s positioning and evaluating its effectiveness as well as any possible reaction from your body. We also believe strongly in providing open channels for communication between appointments so that any concerns can be addressed immediately.

At Womens Health Group Chicago, servicing Elmhurst area women’s healthcare needs are at heart of everything we do thereby making us uniquely equipped to manage any potential side effects arising post-insertion such as cramping or irregular periods.We prioritize minimizing discomfort while maximizing health outcomes.

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.
