IUD Services in Grant Park Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we guarantee a friendly and professional environment for all of your contraceptive care needs near Grant Park. One such service that we provide includes IUD insertion and removal. Our team of expert healthcare providers is professionally trained to make this process as simple, safe, and pain-free as possible. Whether you are having an IUD inserted for the first time or have chosen to switch things up, our clinicians will ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

We understand that women’s bodies are unique – what works perfectly fine for one woman may not necessarily suit another. Therefore, at Womens Health Group Chicago we offer comprehensive counseling on different types of intrauterine devices (IUD). We prioritize educating you entirely about hormone-releasing versus non-hormonal copper-based IUDs so as you can confidently make an informed choice about your body’s health.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

During follow-up visits after your IUD insertion, our healthcare providers closely monitor any changing symptoms or discomfort you’re experiencing post-procedure. Not only do these routine check-ups help us keep track of the device’s placement within the uterus but they also allow us to identify any potential concerns promptly.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

With extensive experience in managing side effects associated with IUD use such as irregular bleeding patterns or cramping; our team always aims to minimize discomfort whilst ensuring optimal functionality of your contraceptive method. If complications arise due to an unfortunate chance event like partial expulsion from the uterus or infection; our gynaecologists rapidly initiate corrective action appropriate to each individual case.

Alternatives To IUDs

If you feel that an intrauterine device isn’t right for you after discussing your options, there is no cause for concern. At our Chicago-based clinic, we offer various alternatives to IUD’s. These include barrier methods like condoms and diaphragms; hormonal modalities such as patches, oral pills, vaginal rings or injections; permanent surgical procedures; fertility awareness methods and emergency contraception when required.

Emergency Contraception

For times when a regular contraceptive method fails or in the case of unprotected intercourse, the Womens Health Group Chicago team stands ready to guide you through options for emergency contraception. Whether it’s prescribing ‘morning-after’ pills or fitting a copper IUD within 5 days of exposure, we are dedicated to ensuring that every woman has access to swift and reassuring solutions in times of need.

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.
