Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

We believe in empowering women by educating them about various contraceptive options available. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer an interactive counseling service on different types of IUDs. Whether hormonal or non-hormonal copper T-380A is ideal for you will depend upon your body’s specific health conditions, hormonal balance and lifestyle requirements; our experts will guide you through making the right decision for yourself.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

At Womens Health Group Chicago we firmly believe that follow-up care is as important as the initial procedure itself. Following any IUD insertion, we provide regular monitoring sessions with our doctors to ensure correct placement and adaptability within your body system over time. These check-ups are essential in addressing any eventual complications early while keeping track of possible side effects to guarantee a smooth adaptation phase after the procedure.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

One’s peace-of-mind post-procedure often primarily revolves around how well they can manage potential side-effects & complications with effective clinical support from their healthcare team. At Women’s Health Group Chicago this is readily provided! Combining expert knowledge with empathetic patient handling skills our staff make sure your queries get addressed timely while managing bothersome symptoms effectively so you continue living life freely without worry!

Alternatives To IUDs: Comprehensive Counseling Services

While intrauterine devices are a highly effective form of contraception, it’s important to remember that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution for every woman. At Womens Health Group Chicago we offer thorough counseling and services on various alternatives to IUDs such as birth control pills, patches, shots or barrier methods like condoms or diaphragms depending upon your personal preferences and lifestyle considerations.

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.
