IUD Services in West Englewood Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer expert care for IUD insertion and removal. Our highly trained practitioners apply a patient-centric approach prioritizing your comfort throughout the process. We make use of the latest medical technologies to ensure a seamless procedure with minimal discomfort. Prior to beginning, our team will discuss what you should expect during and after the process. Whether it’s your first IUD or if you’ve chosen to switch from one type of intrauterine device to another, rest assured that you are in capable hands.

Counseling on Different Types of IUDs

Choosing an ideal contraceptive method can be confusing due to numerous available options. This is why Womens Health Group Chicago offers informative counseling sessions detailing different types of IUDs – hormonal and copper-based devices along with their respective benefits and potential side effects. Together we’ll help determine which kind fits best with your lifestyle, health needs, and future family planning goals.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

IUD placement isn’t where our responsibility ends; ensuring your well-being post-insertion also forms part of our comprehensive service package at Womens Health Group Chicago. Through follow-up appointments and regular monitoring after insertion, we track how your body is responding to the device over time – thus ensuring optimal health outcomes for our patients based in West Englewood.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Any form of contraception may come with its own set of potential side effects or complications but managing these effectively can increase user satisfaction significantly while reducing discontinuation rates due to adverse impacts on individual’s health or lifestyle changes. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we proactively guide our patients about possible reactions related to each type of IUD type like menstrual cycle changes or pelvic pain among others so they’re fully informed when making this crucial decision about their health.

Alternatives To IUDs

The Womens Health Group Chicago recognizes that every woman’s needs are unique and an IUD may not be the best fit for everybody. For this reason, we provide comprehensive guidance on alternatives to IUDs such as oral contraceptives, vaginal rings, diaphragms, cervical caps among others. Our healthcare professionals thrive in providing tailored advice that takes both your lifestyle factors and biological requirements into account when helping you decide the most suitable contraceptive option.

Emergency Contraception

In situations requiring emergency contraception, the Women’s Health Group Chicago is fully equipped to offer patient-centric services while ensuring confidentiality at every step of the process. We counsel on various emergency options including morning-after pills and copper-based intrauterine devices which can be used depending on the particular circumstances of each case after a thorough consultation with our experienced clinicians.

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.
