Menopause Symptoms and Solutions

During the transition to menopause, changing hormone levels can affect your menstrual cycle and cause symptoms like hot flashes and problems sleeping. As you get closer to menopause, you may notice additional symptoms, such as pain during sex, urinary problems, changes in mood, and even memory problems.

Hormone replacement is a common, effective treatment, but there are also a variety of non-hormonal options to help keep your cool and to manage other menopause symptoms.

 When you visit Women's Health Specialists, we'll discuss the symptoms you are experiencing, cover the treatment options that are right for you, and create a plan to help get you through this often challenging time with ease.

"I saw Dr. Kennedy for my first pregnancy. Her nurse Kelly has such a genuine concern for her patients; I can't imagine anyone being a better nurse than Kelly. Dr. Kennedy was great. She made some decisions for my delivery that at the time I didn't want to hear. But her calls resulted in keeping me healthy, and more importantly a perfect new baby boy. I will forever be grateful to her for taking such good care of us. I highly recommend Women's Health Specialists and Dr. Kennedy to anyone. Especially after seeing other doctors, I think this place is the best."

"Dr. Pfaffenbach and the team at Women's Health has been wonderful. I went through them for the delivery of my baby. They caught a potentially life threatening condition and successfully delivered my baby. Despite it being a very scary experience, I felt comfortable knowing I was in good hands. After being hospitalized for awhile, I am on the road to recovery, which wouldn't have been possible without them."

"I would highly recommend anyone to Women's Health Specialist! I personally see Dr. Amy Schmidt and she is AMAZING! Herself and her staff are so easy to work with! She is more than willing to sit down and take the time to listen to you, make sure all of your questions are answered and that you feel comfortable every step of the way! I look forward to working even closer with her in the future when we start a family."

"Dr. Julie Meyer is a real gem! Like finding a real diamond in a box of cracker jacks. From my perspective, she has a special quality about her that would difficult to express in words. The professional, caring and kind manner in which I was treated by her will be remembered for a long time. I didn't have a long wait-time to see her, however, she is someone well worth waiting for if need be. A great listener too! Someone who actually cares and is interested in what you have to say. Yay! for Dr. Julie Meyer."


“When I think about what I want in a physician, I want someone that is caring and compassionate. When I started working with Dr. Honkamp, that’s exactly what I got, and more. I feel like she’s my mother, honestly concerned about my situation, and genuinely cares about me.”
