Infertility Services in Lockport Illinois

Fertility Testing and Diagnosis

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the importance of early diagnosis in handling infertility issues effectively. It is for this reason that we offer comprehensive fertility testing and diagnostic services to our Lockport area patients. Our skilled team conducts various hormone tests, ultrasound scans, and a host of other standard procedures to ascertain any underlying issues affecting your fertility status. We ensure accuracy, confidentiality & compassion throughout the process.

Ovulation Induction and Monitoring

We know not every woman experiences effortless regular ovulation cycles – which can impact their fertility significantly. To address this concern, Womens Health Group Chicago delivers highly effective treatments including Ovulation Induction therapy to individuals from across Lockport facing such challenges. Expert monitoring by professionals helps control drug response thereby ensuring correct ovulation timing – boosting chances for conception substantially.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Our clinic also specializes in Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), a simpler assisted reproductive technology available for women struggling with fertility problems. With a less invasive approach compared to alternatives techniques like IVF, IUI entails placing several good-quality sperm directly into a woman’s uterus around her ovulating period thus widening the likelihood of fertilization occurring naturally in due course.

In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In cases where natural or low-tech interventions are proving ineffective at enabling pregnancy, advanced services such as In-Vitro Fertilization offered by Womens Health Group Chicago come into play. Having helped myriad families within Paris from inception up till now through our state-of-the-art IVF facility coupled with personalized care provides solace knowing that all efforts towards achieving parenthood haven’t gone vain.

Reproductive Surgery

We also provide corrective reproductive surgery aimed at rectifying physical abnormalities potentially deterring successful pregnancies among women from Lockport and beyond. Our skilled surgical team with broad years of experience provides immediate course correction in matters related to fallopian tubes, reproductive hormones regulation, or ovarian conditions affecting fertility.

Counseling and Support For Infertility

The resolve to overcome infertility can often be an emotional rollercoaster. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we don’t just focus on your physical well-being but also place great emphasis on mental health. We offer professional counseling & support services designed explicitly for individuals grappling with infertility issues at our Lockport clinic. Our compassionate counselors understand the unique challenges faced by you during this journey and strive to provide a supportive environment to navigate through these trials stronger and healthier mentally.

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.
