IUD Insertion and Removal

Welcome to Womens Health Group Chicago, where IUD insertion and removal is one of our specialties. Our highly trained team understands the importance of comfort and knowledge during this process. We provide personalized care in a safe environment, ensuring you feel respected and heard. The procedure typically takes around 15 minutes and can be followed up by an ultrasound test to confirm the position of your device.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

We believe that every woman should make informed decisions regarding her health and wellbeing. To meet this promise, we offer comprehensive counseling on different types of IUDs available in the market today. Our experienced medical professionals will guide you through potential options such as hormonal or non-hormonal devices based on personal preferences, lifestyle considerations, medical history – providing clear information for what suits your needs best.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

The team at Womens Health Group Chicago doesn’t stop caring post-procedure; we follow-up regularly after IUD insertion to ensure optimal results. Continued monitoring includes assessing how well your body is adapting to the device, confirming its proper placement over time while also discussing any side effects you may experience or concerns you might have about adjusting to life with an IOD.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Navigating through the potential side effects of an implant can be daunting but rest assured that managing these complications formulates core part of our service offering at Womens Health Group Chicago – especially when it comes to Maywood residents! From irregular periods, spotting between cycles or changes in mood swings; count us in for expert advice on managing these unexpected changes effectively & efficiently using proven techniques/medications.

Alternatives To IUDs

While Interuterine Device (IUD) offers many benefits as a long-term contraception method, we appreciate that it might not be right option for everyone. Women have different needs and comfort levels. Therefore, we offer extensive counseling on alternatives to IUDs such as the pill, patch, vaginal ring etc – designed to meet your unique health goals & lifestyle considerations.

Emergency Contraception

When it comes to those unexpected moments of potential contraceptive failure or unprotected sex; Womens Health Group Chicago is here for Maywood’s women providing safe & effective options for emergency contraception. Whether you need a morning-after pill or require guidance about same-day insertion of a copper IUD post unprotected intercourse; trust us enough for accessing timely help which could greatly reduce the risk of an unwanted pregnancy.

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.
