Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Knowledge is power when it comes to women’s health choices, especially considering monthly contraceptives are not ‘one size fits all’. At Womens Health Group Chicago located in North Center area, we provide comprehensive counseling on different types of Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) available today – hormonal IUDs such as Mirena or Skyla; non-hormonal options like ParaGard copper-T 380A among others.

Our certified professionals discuss each type of IUD comprehensively with you fostering an environment where your concerns and confusions are addressed appropriately before any decision making.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Understanding that correct placement of an IUD immediately after its insertion may need adjustment over time underscores the importance of follow-up appointments after IUD insertion procedure. Within weeks after obtaining your procedure at Womens Health Group Chicago serving residents across North Center, we schedule a follow-ups appointment both for reassurance purposes relative to device placement but also monitoring uterine health overall.

These check-ups have been designed keeping women’s needs in view–providing utmost care while minimizing disruptions resulting from frequent interventions.

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.
