Infertility in Palos Heights

Infertility Services in Palos Heights Illinois

Fertility Testing and Diagnosis

Every woman’s fertility journey is unique. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our greatest commitment is to help you on this journey, and it all begins with thorough Fertility Testing and Diagnosis. We understand the importance of pinpointing the exact underlying cause of infertility in order for us to devise a successful course of treatment. Our team conducts comprehensive evaluations which may consist of hormonal testing, ultrasound assessments, or maybe even more detailed examinations such as Hysterosalpingography (HSG) or Saline Infusion Sonograms (SIS). We are committed to providing personalized care for our Palos Heights patients throughout every stage.

Ovulation Induction and Monitoring

Another amazing service we offer at Womens Health Group Chicago is Ovulation Induction and Monitoring. This procedure involves the administration of medication that stimulates ovulation followed by close supervision during your menstrual cycle to track egg follicle development and timing of release. It often forms part of treatments like IUI or IVF but can also aid women experiencing irregular cycles or conditions like PCOS where induction serves as an effective method in increasing pregnancy chances.

Intrauterine Insemination

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we offer highly sophisticated services, including Intrauterine Insemination – one step forward towards making your parenthood dream come true! During this process, specially prepared sperm is introduced directly into the uterus around peak ovulating time thereby maximizing chances for conception. Our skilled specialists guarantee minimal discomfort delivering excellent patient experience right here in Palos Heights!

In-Vitro Fertilization

Womens Health Group Chicago prides itself on being at the forefront when it comes to offering advanced reproductive technologies like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Where natural conception isn’t achievable due to several reasons from fallopian tube complications through low sperm count, IVF comes as a beacon of hope. In this process, we combine eggs and sperms outside the body in our advanced laboratories. The resultant embryos are then transferred into your womb to implant and grow naturally.

Reproductive Surgery

Dealing with physical barriers to fertility can be incredibly taxing at times but rest assured that Womens Health Group Chicago is here for you providing expert help! Our team specializes in reproductive surgeries aimed at addressing various structural or anatomical problems affecting conception. From relieving endometriosis symptoms through minimally invasive surgical procedures such as laparoscopy, our dedicated surgeons use state-of-the-art technology thus encouraging favorable outcomes among our cherished Palos Heights patient population.

Counseling and Support For Infertility

We understand the emotional toll infertility can enact on women and couples alike. That’s why aside from medical services, counseling support remains a core part of our practice at Womens Health Group Chicago. We believe every woman going through such challenges deserves an empathetic shoulder, a listening ear & an encouraging word. Our compassionate counselors provide one-on-one attention offering comprehensive guidance along your entire fertility journey – working towards overcoming fears while soothing anxieties which are normal amidst these circumstances.

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.
Dr. Mike is DA BEST!
