Hormonal Contraceptives

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we appreciate how important it is for women to have choices when it comes to birth control. One popular option that we offer to our clients in Goodings Grove are hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal birth control methods effectively deter pregnancy by manipulating the body’s natural hormonal cycle using synthetic versions of female hormones such as progestin and estrogen. These options, ranging from daily pills, patches, vaginal rings or injections greatly minimize the chances of unplanned pregnancies. Our expert team guides you through understanding the benefits and potential side effects related to these options empowering you to make informed decisions about your reproductive health.

Our specialists will offer personalized counseling before procedure initiation ensuring that any LARC selected fits perfectly within your overall family planning framework.

I’ve had the absolute best experience here at Women’s Health Group. I often get anxious when visiting doctors, but Lexi and the team here have always made me feel very safe and relaxed. I had to get some blood work done and they drew my blood on-site at the clinic, which was super convenient! I was encouraged to lay down and rest afterwards for as long as I needed, and I never felt rushed. I’ve also gotten an IUD here and it was a million times easier than I expected. Lexi is just fantastic and talked me through the whole process! The team here will do everything in their power to help you receive the care you need, and I highly recommend this clinic.
