IUD Services in Worth Illinois

IUD Insertion and Removal

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we know that contraception is a personal decision. That’s why our team of expert OBGYN physicians are well-versed in the procedures such as IUD insertion and removal. We maintain standards of care to ensure your comfort throughout every step, including pre-procedure counselling and post-operative observation for any complications or side effects.

Our professionals understand woman’s anatomy intimately, providing comprehensive services for residents across Worth. While removing an IUD may be straightforward, a professional must perform the process to mitigate potential risks like uterine perforation or infection.

Counseling On Different Types Of IUDs

IUDs come in different types – hormonal and copper-based – each holding their unique advantages depending upon individual health conditions and lifestyle choices. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we explain what you should expect with both sorts. Every patient is given ample time to voice concerns or questions regarding the procedure ensuring you make informed decisions about your body.

Patients from Worth can access detailed information about various brands available under each type of IuD so they can choose wisely which aligns best with their health scenarios.

Follow-up And Monitoring After Insertion

After undergoing an IUD insertion at Womens Health Group Chicago, rest assured that our care doesn’t end there. Post-insertion follow-ups are significant; these scheduled appointments provide us with valuable feedback on how your body reacts to this new contraceptive method and help us adjust treatment as necessary.

Monitoring after insertion enables early detection of rare yet severe complications like displacement or expulsion in patients from Worth while managing common minor side-effects before escalating into major issues effectively.

Managing Side Effects And Complications

Although using an intrauterine device (IUD) for contraception generally bears fewer risks compared-to other methods, addressing all side effects upfront is essential. Aftercare post-IUD insertion at Womens Health Group Chicago involves an on-going dialogue about any irregularities or discomfort you may experience.

Through medication management, lifestyle changes, or even IUD removal (if it comes to that), we are committed to mitigating adverse effects and complications right from inception till resolution ensuring your reproductive health is never compromised.

Alternatives To IUDs

While IUDs remain one of the most effective contraceptive options, they might not suit everyone due to varied reasons such as certain medical conditions, personal preference etc.. If for whatever reason an IUD doesn’t work with your body or lifestyle, Your healthcare provider at Womens Health Group Chicago will guide & educate women in Worth around different alternatives available like birth control pills, injections patch or ring among others to ensure zero-compromise on preventive care measures.

Emergency Contraception

Unforeseen situations can arise when regular contraception fails. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we provide solutions including emergency contraception options for these instances. Qualified advisors assist patients through each step proactively explaining the best avenues per individual case scenario favoring minimal risks while dispensing dedicated services irrespective of change in plans/ circumstances maintaining utmost discretion throughout.

Our clinic believes all residents within Worth should have quick access to timely advice and contraception methods regardless of their preferred long-term solution.

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.
