IUD Services in Greenwood Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we dedicate ourselves to providing comprehensive services for women’s health. We specialize in IUD insertion and removal procedures designed around the unique needs of every woman who trusts us with their healthcare. With professional precision, our clinicians guide you through the process, ensuring minimal discomfort while prioritizing your safety at all times.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Our team believes that knowledge empowers decision-making when it comes to selecting an appropriate form of contraception. In light of this belief, our qualified practitioners engage patients in thorough discussions about various types of intrauterine devices (IUDs). These conversations encompass hormonal and copper-based options as well as different brands available on the market. Our emphasis lies on equipping each woman with full understanding to make an informed choice personalized according to her body’s responses and lifestyle considerations.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

We assure our clients that the care provided by Womens Health Group Chicago extends beyond just initial procedure facilitation. Following any IUD insertion, a series of follow-ups is habitually accommodated within our schedule to ensure successful device implementation without complications or discomfort over time. This attentively conducted monitoring involves regular check-ins and tailored adjustments if necessary for optimal results throughout its lifespan until eventual removal.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Be assured that Womens Health Group Chicago remains dedicated to addressing any side effects or complications related to your contraceptive measures promptly and effectively. Side effects may vary from moderate physical changes such as irregular menstrual bleeding patterns or severe indications requiring immediate medical attention like possible infections or displacement concerns regarding your IUD placement – we offer proactive solutions along with continuous guidance covering all these possibilities.

Alternatives To IUDs< /h2>

Realizing how diverse individual preferences can be, our clinic provides comprehensive consultations about alternatives to IUDs as well. Just as with determining an appropriate IUD, advising patients on other contraceptive methods such as birth control pills, diaphragms or implants is based on discussions around safety, efficiency and compatibility with unique lifestyle demands. Advocating for patient’s right to opt freely after being conversant of all potential choices stands at the heart of our services.

Emergency Contraception

As part of a holistic approach towards women’s health care in Greenwood, we provide reliable options for emergency contraception. Whether it’s due to failed standard contraception or unplanned sexual encounter necessitating preventive measures against unplanned pregnancy – our team extends utmost confidentiality and support while serving professional assistance under these circumstances. Understanding the crucial timeframe involved here, Womens Health Group Chicago strives towards assisting promptly without compromising quality care.

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.
