SEPTEMBER 2020
Dear Patient of FOWH,

Fair Oaks Women’s Health welcomes Dr. Kim Bui to our group. Dr. Bui recently graduated from her Ob/Gyn Residency program in Denver, but Southern California is her home and she is happy to be back here close to family and friends, doing what she loves.

Dr Bui says that, “As an ob/gyn, I feel grateful and humbled to share special moments with my patients. I strive to be an empathetic listener and partner on my patient's journey to good health. I love getting to know my patients and their families. This allows me to better understand them as people so I can help them with their specific needs and goals.” Read more about Dr Bui here...
MENSTRUAL CUPS
A menstrual cup is a feminine hygiene product, used during your period. It is a small, flexible funnel-shaped device made of rubber or silicone that you insert into your vagina to collect and hold menstrual blood. The "disc" is a variation of the cup (kind of like a diaphragm with a pouch attached).

Cups (and discs) can hold more blood than other methods, leading many women to use them as an eco-friendly alternative to tampons. And depending on your flow, you might be able to wear a cup for up to 12 hours (4-12 hours is typical). This can help you sleep through the night on a heavy flow day.

FLU SHOT CLINIC
Fair Oaks Women’s Health had our flu shot clinic last Saturday. For those who came, thank you for your participation. We deeply apologize for the unexpected delays and texting problems. This was our 3rd annual clinic, and the first two went great. However, this was our first using texting and dealing with COVID. We were not prepared for the volume of patients and we also had technical issues with the texting system. This resulted in delays and some people not getting their vaccine. Again, we are very sorry for this. We will do better next year. If you came to our clinic but DID NOT get your vaccine, please let us know so we can apologize to you personally. Call Mercedes at (626) 696-2728, send an e-mail to obgyn@fowh.com or use this form to communicate directly with us.
