Birth Control in Grand Crossing

Birth Control Services in Grand Crossing Illinois

Hormonal Contraceptives

At the Womens Health Group Chicago, we are committed to providing quality healthcare for women in Grand Crossing and support their decisions regarding birth control. One of our foremost services focuses on hormonal contraceptives. These consist of different forms such as pills, patches, injections, or rings that contain hormones to regulate or stop ovulation and prevent pregnancy. Our doctors conduct thorough evaluations tailored according to each patient’s needs and lifestyle preferences before prescribing any methods.

Long-acting Reversible Contraceptives

In addition to hormonal contraception, we also specialize in Long-acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC). Known for their efficiency, LARC includes IUDs (intrauterine devices) and implants. These are inserted inside your body by a medical professional and can provide protection from unplanned pregnancies for several years at a stretch. They’re recommended if you want highly effective yet reversible birth control with minimal daily attention.

Barrier Methods

For those who prefer non-hormonal options that still help prevent unwanted pregnancies effectively, we offer guidance on barrier methods. This category consists of condoms – both male and female types – diaphragms, cervical caps among other tools that physically hinder sperm from entering the uterus during sex when used correctly. Our trained professionals will ensure you understand how these function correctly without compromising comfort or pleasure.

Permanent Birth Control

Understanding that some may not wish to have children at all or have completed their families already, The Womens Health Group Chicago provides services focusing on permanent birth control. This involves procedures like tubal ligation or vasectomy referrals when everything else is not an option anymore due to personal circumstances unique for every woman based in Grand Crossing neighborhood.

Emergency Contraception

We acknowledge there are times when regular contraceptive measures fail or are not used correctly. During these situations, emergency contraception becomes crucial in preventing an unintended pregnancy. We provide various options like morning-after pills that can be taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex for maximum efficiency.

Fertility Awareness Methods

Lastly, we also guide and educate women interested in natural ways of birth control through Fertility Awareness Methods (FAMs). By monitoring body signs such as basal body temperature or cervical mucus changes, it is possible to determine the most fertile days in a menstrual cycle. Consequently, one could choose to avoid sexual activity during this time if they want to prevent pregnancies naturally without using any products or undergoing procedures. The team at Womens Health Group Chicago is ready to partner with you on your journey to better understandings about your fertility.

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.
