Dr. Okoroji and Nature Coast Women’s Care are pleased to announce that they now able to offer a non-invasive tubal ligation that can be done in-house, and on an out-patient basis. This new treatment, which has shown to be more than ninety-nine percent effective, is vastly different from the traditional method of surgical tubal ligation, because there is no cutting into the body. Instead, this latest procedure involves having a tiny insert into your Fallopian tubes, working with your body, via your body’s own natural pathways (vagina, cervix and uterus). This forces your body to work for itself by stimulating its own tissue to grow in and around the insert having been placed in your Fallopian tubes. This then create a more natural, much safer method against unwanted pregnancy.
Abnormal uterine bleeding, otherwise known as menorrhagia, occurs during menstrual periods with abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding. Although heavy menstrual bleeding is a common concern among premenopausal women, it is rare that women will experience blood loss severe enough to qualify as menorrhagia.
If you do suffer from menorrhagia, each and every period you have causes enough blood loss and severe cramping that you are unable to maintain your usual activities. If your menstrual bleeding is so heavy that you dread the onset of your period, talk with the experienced, dedicated staff at Nature Coast Woman’s Care, to discuss the many effective treatment options for sufferers of menorrhagia.

A common condition affecting women’s health is uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids, also know as leiomyomata, are non-cancerous growths that can develop inside (or just outside) the uterus. They can occur when normal uterus muscle cells begin to grow abnormally. As they do, they can form a benign tumor.
All uterine fibroids are similar in makeup, and tend to grow as a mass, or in a tight bundle. These fibroids are generally classified by their location in the uterus:
- Myometrial, or intramural, fibroids develop in the muscular wall of the uterus.
- Submucosal fibroids grow just under the interior surface of the uterus, and may protrude into the uterus.
- Subserosal fibroids grow on the outside wall of the uterus.
- Pedunculated fibroids grow outside of the uterus, and are attached to the uterus by a base or stalk. Read more
Dr. Okoroji and his staff of highly-trained, compassionate professional health care providers are constantly looking for new and better ways to bring their ever-expanding list of OB/GYN services to his clientele, no matter where they reside.
So it only seemed natural that they would open a second Nature Coast Women’s Care location in the Quincy area. After all, Dr. O. (as he is affectionately known!) had been offering a wide variety of treatment for the pregnant women of this area of Gadsden County at least once a week for the past five years or so, usually at little or no cost. And when drastic changes in state policies forced significant budget cuts in the area, the county services which offered routine care to pregnant women were cut off, and another option had to be found…or created!
There are nearly fifty thousand people in this area of Gadsden County; and there were no local, continuous OB-GYN service providers available.
But now, thanks to Dr. O. and his staff at Nature Coast Women’s Care, there soon will be! It is their inspired hope that by opening a second location right in Quincy where it is most needed, readily-available services will make it easier for pregnant women in the county to get the help they need, when they need it–and without having to travel longer distances to do so.
In the future, Dr. Okoroji plans to expand the list of services that Nature Coast Women’s Care provides at this newest location, to include additional gynocological-related treatments, examinations, follow-ups, and other measures, as well. Be sure to contact Dr. O. or any of his professional, caring staff to find more information, and how you can schedule an appointment.
