Women's Health Q & A
When should you schedule a well-woman visit?
Well-woman visits at Guardian Physicians should be scheduled at least once a year. If you've experienced any significant female health problems, had major surgery, or suffer from chronic health issues, you may need to see Dr. Oyekoya more often.
What are some common women's health problems?
Women may develop conditions related to the reproductive system, including:
- Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
- Uterine fibroids
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Breast cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Urinary tract infections
- Urinary incontinence
What types of birth control are available for women today?
Guardian Physicians offers a wide range of birth control options for women. Dr. Oyekoya can help you decide what works best for your life. Options include:
Birth control pills (oral contraceptives)
Birth control pills contain estrogen, progestin, or both. When used correctly — on time each day — birth control pills can be more than 99% effective. However, missed or delayed doses can lower effectiveness to around 90%.
Intra-Uterine Device (IUD)
There are two types of IUDs, copper and hormonal. Three to six years is the effective range for hormonal IUDs and copper IUDs can be effective for up to 12 years. IUDs are more than 99% effective.
Birth control implant
A birth control implant releases a progestin hormone, etonogestrel. A birth control implant in your arm can work for up to three years with a better than 99% effectiveness rate.
Permanent birth control
If you're certain that you don't want to have more children, permanent birth control like Essure® fallopian tube implants is an option.
What symptoms indicate a women's health issue?

- Unusually heavy menstrual periods
- Extreme pain during ovulation
- Extreme pain during menstruation
