IUD Services in Midlothian Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we are committed to offering comprehensive services in all aspects of women’s health care including IUD insertion and removal. We understand that every woman is unique with distinct needs concerning her reproductive health. With our team of experienced medical professionals based near Midlothian, you can choose from a variety of FDA-approved IUDs for short-term or long-term contraception depending on your lifestyle needs and future family planning perspectives.

Our providers ensure a seamless process during both the insertion and removal procedures by administering local anesthesia where needed, thereby minimizing discomfort. Our goal is to make you feel at ease while ensuring utmost safety throughout the procedure.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Making informed decisions about your contraceptive options may seem overwhelming, considering the number of choices available today. At Women’s Health Group Chicago we aim to simplify this process through our patient-centered counseling sessions. The focus here is on educating you about the different types of hormonal and non-hormonal IUDs available – their effectiveness, potential side effects, longevity, and what to expect post-insertion.

We also take into account your overall physical health condition, preferences towards hormones as well as your plans for pregnancy in the future when guiding you through these options.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

Your care doesn’t stop once an IUD has been inserted – at Womens Health Group Chicago we prioritize follow-ups after any procedure. This allows us to monitor how well you’re adjusting to an intrauterine device (IUD), check its placement periodically and address any questions or concerns that might arise over time.

Regular monitoring visits will also provide opportunities for identifying signs of possible infection early enough so they can be treated immediately thus preventing further complications.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

While most women adjust quite well to IUDs, some may experience side effects or complications such as abdominal discomfort, changes in menstrual cycle or mood swings after an insertion. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we are prepared to help you manage these potential issues effectively.

With prompt and appropriate interventions such as medication adjustments and lifestyle strategies, we strive to ensure that any discomfort is minimal and doesn’t interfere with your daily activities.

Alternatives To IUDs

Understanding that the use of IUDs might not be optimal for every woman’s unique circumstances and choices, Womens Health Group Chicago offers advice on alternative contraceptive methods too. These include birth control pills, implants, rings or patches; barrier methods like diaphragms or condoms; natural family planning techniques etc. Each option comes with its set of pros and cons which will be thoroughly discussed during our counseling sessions making it easier for you to make a suitable choice.

Emergency Contraception

In case of unprotected sex or contraception failure (for example if a condom breaks), emergency contraception can significantly reduce risk of unwanted pregnancy. Our clinic provides fast access to ‘morning-after’ pills having prescriptions ready when needed most urgently.

Remember – while extremely effective as emergency solutions they should never replace regular contraceptives requiring consistent use like the ones mentioned above.

Never hesitate reaching out – Women’s Health Group Chicago is here providing care irrespective of your plans in Midlothian!

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.
