Post-procedure care forms an important aspect at Womens Health Group Chicago clinic too. Your recovery period after an IUD insertion does not go overlooked here! Regular follow-ups with check-ins on discomfort levels ensure that no complications arise unexpectedly after insertion. Moreover, monitoring also helps us chart out if there needs to be any alterations made to improve comfort levels.

Here at Womens Health Group Chicago, managing these issues take center stage promptly as soon as they’re detected during regular follow-ups making sure your wellness remains uncompromised during this journey towards healthy living.

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.
