IUD Services in Frankfort Square Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we specialize in providing a range of services including IUD insertion and removal. Our team of highly experienced healthcare providers consider the patient’s comfort during the procedure as a top priority. The process is quick and often painless, implemented in our clinic with utmost hygiene and care standards. Post-procedure, patients are provided with comprehensive after-care instruction to alleviate any discomfort or complications.

Counseling on different types of IUDs

We understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to contraceptive needs. To help you make an informed decision about your reproductive health, our experts provide counseling sessions covering different types of Intrauterine Devices (IUDs). We impart clear information about hormonal IUDs like Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla which release progesterone gradually into your body while non-hormonal copper T-380A ParaGard operates separately altogether. With this understanding we allow you to rest assured knowing your contraceptive choice aligns perfectly with your specific lifestyle and health condition.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

Post-insertion follow-up is critical for us at the Women’s Health Group Chicago because we prioritize patient wellbeing above everything else! Scheduling regular appointments allows us to monitor physical reactions following IUD insertions through routine check-ups ensuring there isn’t unusual bleeding or other issues associated with device rejection by body so that early intervention can be initiated if needed.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

While the majority experiences minimal side effects when using an IUD as contraception method – occasional cramps or irregular menstruation might occur at times too. These conditions generally improve overtime yet under untoward circumstances needing medical attention such as prolonged heavy bleeding, unbearable pains etc., ourofessionals provide immediate consultation and appropriate management to tackle side effects and complications.

Alternatives To IUDs

Recognizing that every woman’s contraceptive needs are unique, we foster a comprehensive approach in presenting potential alternatives to Intrauterine Devices (IUDs). Birth control methods such as birth control pills, patches, vaginal rings or depo-provera injections can fit better into the lifestyle of some patients. Barrier methods like condoms, diaphragms or cervical caps also serve as effective options.

Emergency Contraception

In instances where conventional contraception fails or is not utilized because of any unforeseen circumstance- Emergency Contraceptions might be the answer! To cater for these pressing moments we offer immediate advice regarding accessible over-the-counter emergency contraceptives including Levonorgestrel tablets (Plan B One-step) and Ulipristal Acetate tablet Ella which need prescription. We emphasize on proper guidance helping you get through these stressful times with utmost ease.

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.
