Birth Control in McKinley Park

Birth Control Services in McKinley Park Illinois

Hormonal Contraceptives

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the importance of personal choice when it comes to birth control. Among the most commonly preferred options are hormonal contraceptives. Delivered through methods such as pills, patches, injections and even implants in your arm, these contraceptives work by altering hormone levels to prevent ovulation. This way, they protect against conception without giving up any of the joy intimately connecting with your partner can give. Our team is here to guide you along this important health decision with empathy and expertise.

Long-acting Reversible Contraceptives

Our clinic in McKinley Park also offers Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC). These include devices like intrauterine devices (IUDs) and under-the-skin implants that release hormones slowly over time. LARCs have been shown to be extremely effective, convenient, and long lasting – hence a solid option for women seeking worry-free protection spanning several years. Whether or not this contraceptive method suits your lifestyle perfectly will be something our caring professionals at Womens Health Group Chicago gladly help ascertain.

Barrier Methods

Expense considerations generally make barrier methods appealing birth control choices; condoms being likely its most well-known example due their dual advantages of contraception and STD prevention simultaneously. Other versions utilizing similar principles include diaphragms and cervical caps which act as blockages deterring sperm from entering into uterus or sponges releasing spermicide adding an additional protective layer against pregnancy chances— are all variously suited towards different needs depending upon individual circumstances.

Permanent Birth Control

For those who have decided that their family is complete or strongly choose never to conceive — permanent birth control procedures could prove conclusive solutions you seek out on completing your life’s beautiful narrative according how YOU designed it rather than leaving it up entirely to faith. These methods typically involve minor surgical procedures rendering either men or women sterile through interventions like vasectomy, tubectomy etc.

Emergency Contraception

Not every sexual encounter is planned and sometimes protections fail. That’s why Womens Health Group Chicago offers Emergency contraception options including “morning-after pills”. These emergency contraceptives can prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse by delaying ovulation or preventing fertilization, an indispensable port-of-call provided you require it promptly within a stipulated accordance period usually within the range of 72-120 hours post-intercourse.

Fertility Awareness Methods

Womens Health Group in McKinley Park also specializes in helping our patients understand their own bodies’ fertility cycles— often known as Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABM) these work by tracking your menstrual cycle minutely for understanding safe and risky periods inherent in them so they could be employed intelligently based on whether current times are ones where you might want, or conversely would avoid getting pregnant respectively

I’ve had the absolute best experience here at Women’s Health Group. I often get anxious when visiting doctors, but Lexi and the team here have always made me feel very safe and relaxed. I had to get some blood work done and they drew my blood on-site at the clinic, which was super convenient! I was encouraged to lay down and rest afterwards for as long as I needed, and I never felt rushed. I’ve also gotten an IUD here and it was a million times easier than I expected. Lexi is just fantastic and talked me through the whole process! The team here will do everything in their power to help you receive the care you need, and I highly recommend this clinic.
