Guavas are self-fruitful so your plant should produce fruit all on its own. If the flowers are not producing fruit there may be a lack of insect pollinators in your garden, or your spring temperatures are too cold/too wet for the pollen to develop properly. Since you've had the tree for several years without having it develop fruit it may be that it is not getting protection from the wind or it needs radiated heat in order to perform well for you. How about moving it to a more protected spot - somewhere near a concrete wall or the side of your house to provide protection and reflected heat? Best wishes with your guava!
