At Womens Health Group Chicago, we pride ourselves in providing quality IUD insertion and removal services. Our skilled OBGYNs are experienced in dealing with all types of intrauterine devices (IUDs), ensuring that these procedures are conducted safely, efficiently, and comfortably for our patients from Washington Park. We employ the use of state-of-the-art technology and follow stringent hygiene protocols to ensure your experience is as pain-free as possible.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

Just as every woman is unique, not all IUDs are created equal either. The team at Womens Health Group Chicago fully understands this distinction; hence offers tailored counseling on various types of IUDs available today – hormonal or non-hormonal – copper-based ones included – to ensure you make an informed decision that aligns with your body’s needs & lifestyle.

Follow-up and Monitoring After Insertion

Your well-being doesn’t stop once the IUD is placed – it’s only just begun. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our healthcare service extends beyond just initial procedures- regular follow-ups & monitoring post-insertion form a crucial part of it too. Patients around Washington Park trust us because alongside professional handling during insertion/removal appointments, we prioritize consistent check-ins thereafter to monitor any developments and rectify concerns swiftly should they arise.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Side effects can occur after acquiring an IUD, but don’t worry! Your health remains at the center of what we do here at Womens Health Group Chicago. Should you experience complications such as heavy bleeding or severe discomfort after getting an IUD fitted: know this first-hand — help exists right around the corner for those residing even down at Washington Park!

Alternatives To IUDs

If an IUD isn’t right for you, there are other contraception options available. We at Womens Health Group Chicago take pride in our comprehensive approach to women’s health, which includes counseling & provision of alternate contraceptive methods like birth control pills, implants, patches and more. The choice remains ever personal and we stand ready to guide you every step of the way.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
