We understand that safety and comfort are paramount during such procedures; therefore, you can expect a gentle approach guided by expert hands while ensuring optimum sterilization standards.

Counseling on Different Types of IUDs

Understanding the different types of Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) is crucial before making any decisions regarding your birth control method. Our team at the Womens Health Group Chicago offers professional advice on different kinds of IUDs available today based on individual needs and lifestyle factors. Whether it’s hormonal or non-hormonal variants like copper IUDs or even deciding between Mirena, Kyleena or Skyla devices – we’re here to help you choose what’s best for you.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Once your IUD insertion procedure has completed, follow-up care becomes an essential part of maintaining optimal health. Trust us to stay with you every step of the way in monitoring your body’s responses after IUD placement. Our routine checkups involve thorough pelvic examinations, ultrasound imaging if necessary as well as addressing any concerns or discomfort that may arise post-procedure.

Managing Side Effects and Complications

While an IUD is one among many effective methods for pregnancy prevention, some women might experience side effects from its use. At Womens Health Group Chicago our dedicated staff understands these potential challenges faced in Glen Ellyn so they stand ready to assist with management solutions tailored specifically towards any unforeseen complications tied directly to your device like irregular menstruation cycles or infection risks associated thereof.

Alternatives To IUDs

We understand that IUDs may not always be the preferred option for everyone. At Womens Health Group Chicago, various alternatives are presented to you in case an IUD is unsuitable or undesired. These alternatives can range from birth control pills, patches and shots, barrier methods like diaphragms and condoms or even permanent options such as sterilization.

Emergency Contraception

Sometime things don’t go as planned. When instances of failure with your regular contraceptive method occur, our clinic offers emergency contraception services within Glen Ellyn for such situations – aimed at preventing unwanted pregnancies after unprotected sexual intercourse. From morning-after pills to Copper-T IUDs acting as efficient post-coital contraceptives, we have every means possible to secure your peace of mind.

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.
