IUD Services in Markham Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the importance of reliable contraception in every woman’s life. Our experienced team specializes in IUD insertion and removal procedures, which are performed with the utmost care and professionalism. Providing you a serene and secure environment is our priority, while also imparting comprehensive information regarding the process to ensure you feel confident about your decision.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Knowing that each woman’s reproductive health needs are unique, we offer personalized counseling on different types of Intrauterine Devices (IUD). Our expert healthcare professionals guide you through details like pros & cons along with potential side effects associated with hormonal or non-hormonal varieties of IUDs. We strive to equip you with enough knowledge so that you can make an informed choice for your body.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

Our dedication towards your well-being doesn’t end at IUD insertion. The follow-up visits at Women’s Health Group Chicago are just as important to us. Regular monitoring ensures that the device is functioning properly and giving optimal results without causing you discomfort or any health issue. With periodic check-ups post-insertion, we keep track of your overall health status.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

While most women adapt well to an IUD, some may experience unexpected side effects or complications following its insertion. Here at Womens Health Group Chicago, we take these concerns seriously by fully assessing all symptoms reported by our patients promptly addressing them one-by-one using evidence-based methods aimed to mitigate discomfort while maintaining efficacy.

Alternatives To IUDs

We believe in providing comprehensive family planning services which include alternatives too apart from IUDs. After considering your lifestyle preferences, medical history, future plans for conceiving – our skilled health professionals can discuss other effective contraceptive methods available like oral contraceptives, injectables, implants or barrier techniques.

Emergency Contraception

In the event of unplanned intercourse or contraceptive failure, Womens Health Group Chicago also offers emergency contraception options. Our team is responsive to your urgent needs and readily aims to minimize any potential stress during this time. Providing timely assistance while ensuring confidentiality remains primary in our interactions with every client in and around Markham.

Since we are a clinic that combines medical expertise with compassionate care, you’re assured of personalized attention at each step of your family planning journey right here – right within the heartlands of Markham.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
