At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we understand that the decision to use an IUD (Intrauterine Device) is a significant one. Our experienced health care professionals are skilled in both the insertion and removal of this popular birth control method. We strive to make these procedures as comfortable and seamless as possible for you. It includes giving careful instructions before, during, and after the procedure taking into account your unique health needs.
Before we proceed with IUD insertion or removal, our team at Women’s Health Group Chicago provides comprehensive counseling on different types of IUDs available. Whether it be hormonal IUDs like Mirena or Skyla or non-hormonal ones such as ParaGard, our experts will explain their aspects thoroughly based on your overall well-being, lifestyle habits and specific reproductive goals to help you make an informed decision.
Once your preferred device has been inserted successfully by our highly trained medical staff at Woman’s Health Group Chicago, follow-ups play a pivotal role in ensuring its effectiveness while also monitoring for any possible complications. Regular checks can aid in providing reassurance about positioning of the device and rule out factors leading towards discomfort or other symptoms.
Even though side effects from using an IUD are rare they still may occur – ranging from light bleeding to abdominal discomfort initially soon after placement but generally decrease over time. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we proactively manage these side effects ensuring continuous guideline-based support through medication management if required or advice regarding suitable lifestyle modifications.
We believe in patient-centered healthcare which encompasses understanding each individual’s preferences distinctly especially when discussing contraceptive choices besides IUDs. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, in addition to counseling on IUD usage, we also provide information and guidance on diverse birth control methods such as the pill, vaginal ring, contraceptive injections or patches dependent on what fits best with your health status and lifestyle.
In distinct adverse circumstances where emergency contraception is essential after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure – do not worry! We can evaluate your situation thoroughly offering suitable solutions such as morning-after pills (Plan B) or a copper IUD that could be used. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at Woman’s Health Group Chicago – each minute counts towards effective prevention of an unintended pregnancy.
