At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the importance of facilitating proper family planning to our Shorewood clients. We offer comprehensive services for IUD insertion and removal. Our experienced gynecologists will walk you through each step of the procedure delicately- ensuring comfort, safety, and confidence throughout. For centuries, IUD has stood among the most reliable methods of contraception with a success rate above 99%. Its effect lasts years but can be reversed any time by competent professionals like ours here in WHGC.
There are diverse types of Intrauterine Devices (IUDs), each with unique features tailored for different needs. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we conduct extensive consultations to guide our Shorewood patients in making informed decisions about their reproductive health. We provide detailed information about the available options – hormonal IUDs such as Mirena or Skyla that release progestin to thicken cervical mucus thus inhibiting sperm movement; non-hormonal copper-based IUD like ParaGard is designed to repel sperms making them incapable of reaching an egg.
Setting an IUD isn’t conclusive in itself as continuous follow-up and monitoring are necessary post-insertion tasks crucial to ensure optimal wellbeing for our Shorewood clients at Womens Health Group Chicago. This ensures that your device remains properly positioned while detecting any signs of complication before they escalate — providing peace-of-mind knowing you’re always under professional scrutiny.
Though generally considered safe, like all medical procedures there could be possible side effects associated with using an IUD such as irregular bleeding or spotting between periods which usually resolves after some months. Other rarer complications could include pelvic inflammatory disease or perforation of the uterus. But, rest assured Shorewood clients at Womens Health Group Chicago are in the good hands of expert medical teams with vast experience managing these conditions. We’re fully committed to your health and comfort throughout this journey.
Understanding individuals’ varying needs and contexts, we offer alternatives such as patches, injections, diaphragms or contraceptive pills at our Shorewood outfit for those uncomfortable or unable to use IUDs. Whether it’s hormonal birth control methods or fertility awareness models you’re looking into – our team is happy to help discuss what contraception would best fit your lifestyle and direct you on how they can be used most effectively.
We acknowledge life’s uncertainty that may require emergency contraception (or ‘morning after’ pill) sometimes. At Womens Health Group Chicago serving Shorewood clients, we provide quality services around reliable emergency contraceptives like Levonorgestrel (Plan B One-Step) which work post-unprotected sex by delaying ovulation hence hindering fertilization while Ella prevents a released egg from getting implanted in the womb if taken within 5 days after intercourse.
