IUD Services in Lincolnwood Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, our focus is to provide comprehensive care for women across Lincolnwood. For those seeking long-term contraceptive solutions, we offer safe and minimally invasive IUD (intrauterine device) insertion and removal services. Our skilled professionals are experienced in both procedures and guarantee minimal discomfort throughout the process. We employ expert techniques in IUD insertion or removal while taking into consideration your comfort and wellbeing at every step.

Counseling On Different Types of IUDs

The decision to use an IUD as a method of contraception comes with various options – hormonal and copper-based devices being the most common. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer detailed counseling on different types of IUDs that can help you make an informed decision about your reproductive health. During these sessions, our professional team explains the benefits, possible side effects, duration of effectiveness, what to expect during insertion among other tailored responses to meet your specific needs.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

We understand that proper follow-up care is essential after undergoing an IUD placement procedure. Patients from all over Lincolnwood trust us for thorough monitoring post-insertion using state-of-the-art technology combined with holistic health assessment methods. Regular checkups will ensure the device is properly positioned without causing any complications such as migration or expulsion while also making note of any adverse reactions.

Managing Side Effects and Complications

Our role doesn’t just stop at inserting or removing your intrauterine device; we carry out dedicated service towards managing potential side effects too. While unlikely, it’s important to have medical support on hand if complications arise following IOD usage such as irregular bleeding or discomfort. The experts at Womens Health Group Chicago will monitor these symptoms attentively ensuring maximum relief with swift resolution tactics based on each individual case.

Alternatives To IUDs

Every woman has unique needs and while IUD may be the perfect fit for some, others may require different contraception solutions. We openly discuss alternatives to IUDs including hormonal medications, barrier methods, and permanent sterilization options. It’s our commitment at Womens Health Group Chicago to offer personalized advice grounded on your life stage, medical history, and lifestyle choices.

Emergency Contraception

We understand that none of the contraceptive methods are 100% foolproof, hence we also cater for emergency contraceptive services to Lincolnwood women who have had unprotected sexual intercourse or in case contraception used failed. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we provide prompt counseling on applicable short-term measures like morning-after pills as well as potential long-term strategies fitting your individual requirements.

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.
