Our team of skilled OBGYNs are trained to perform these procedures with utmost care and precision, ensuring maximum comfort throughout the process.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

It’s not always easy deciding on the type of contraceptives that best suit your needs and lifestyle. That’s why Womens Health Group Chicago offers comprehensive counseling on different types of IUDs available today. From hormonal to copper-based options, our experts discuss every solution thoroughly before suggesting the most suitable one for you. We aim to empower women by equipping them with knowledge about all contraception choices available.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

We don’t just stop at providing high-quality services; we ensure adequate follow-up after each procedure too! At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that receiving an IUD requires proper monitoring thereafter primarily due to potential side effects or complications involved post-insertion. We offer regular check-ups with comforting reassurance in order to track your progress and address any concerns that may arise along the way in Gage Park.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Although considered safe and highly effective forms of contraception, it is completely normal for some women experiencing side effects following their IUD insertions such as irregular bleeding or discomfort during intercourse. Our staff members at Womens Health Group Chicago are equipped with skills necessary to effectively manage any arising issues related to these devices while maintaining a compassionate approach towards patient care.

Alternatives To IUDs

If you believe an IUD isn’t right for you or if you are experiencing challenges with your IUD, we’ve got you covered. With a wide range of contraception methods available today, our professional team can help explore other alternatives that may better suit your needs and preferences such as birth control pills, implants, patches or rings. We believe in customizing every patient’s contraceptive needs to match their unique lifestyle.

Emergency Contraception

There may also be situations where emergency contraception is needed – maybe due to unprotected sex or a missed dose of regular contraceptives. Don’t panic; Womens Health Group Chicago provides prompt and confidential services for emergency contraception scenarios. Offering options like morning-after pill (Plan B) or copper IUDs insertion which are effective up to 5 days post sexual intercourse have made us trusted health experts among women in Gage Park.

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.
