Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

There are many types of intrauterine devices (IUDs), each with different benefits and risks. To help you make an informed decision about what’s best for you, Womens Health Group Chicago offers personalized counseling sessions discussing various types of IUDs including hormonal, copper, and non-hormonal types.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Consistent follow-ups after IUD insertion is crucially important to ensure optimal effectiveness while minimizing potential complications or side effects. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we prioritize your well-being by providing attentive post-insertion monitoring services performed by experts in the field. Each check-in appointment serves not only to assess the proper placement of your device but also addresses any questions or concerns that may arise during this time.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

While IUDs are a safe method for long-term birth control, some minor side effects may occur initially like cramping or irregular menstrual cycles among others . Here at Womens Health Group Chicago, our specially trained staff members offer unparalleled assistance managing any side effects post-IUD placement; from adjusting personal habits contributing towards frequent discomfort or even swapping out one type of I+D for another that will fit your needs better.

Alternatives To IUDs

We understand that not all birth control methods are right for everyone. For this reason, we provide other contraceptive alternatives apart from IUDs as part of our comprehensive women’s health services. Whether you’re interested in conventional oral contraceptives, the patch, or more permanent solutions such as tubal ligation; our dedicated Chicago team is always on hand to deliver valuable insight and guidance tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.

Emergency Contraception

Unexpected situations demand immediate action. We at Womens Health Group Chicago realize that every woman should be equipped with knowledge about emergency contraception options available when faced with unanticipated sexual encounters or failed primary birth control methods. From morning-after pills like Plan B to Ella tablets administered within 120 hours of unprotected intercourse; you can count on us for expert advice and efficient assistance across Lincoln square in Chicago. Our goal is to ensure swift access towards effective emergency protection– because every woman deserves safety and autonomy over her body.

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.
