The physical and emotional symptoms of menopause can often become a huge distraction in a woman’s life. At Dr. Pam’s menopause counseling practice in Savannah, she focuses on helping women understand exactly what is going on in their body, what to expect during the menopausal transition, and most importantly, what to do about it.
As women enter peri-menopause, hormonal fluctuations often become the focus of their health care worries and significantly impact many aspects of their lives. These “symptoms” that women experience can range from a mild inconvenience or distraction to profoundly disturbing life altering events. These changes can cause irregular bleeding, hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain, memory loss, and painful intercourse. At Dr. Pam’s practice these worries, concerns, fears, and life altering events can be understood and treated. Finally, the awkward silence that has made and kept menopause a “bad” word has been replaced with Dr. Pam, America’s Menopause Romance Doctor. There are many new and wonderful options to help with this eventuality of life. Dr. Pam understands all too well that Obstetricians just don’t have the time to give their gynecologic patients the time that they need to address so many issues when they have an office full of pregnant women. After all, the first love of all OB/GYN physicians is delivering their precious babies and bringing new life into the world. It is the most spiritual and rewarding experience in the world for the patient, her husband, and yes, even for the obstetrician. Dr. Pam realized after she had to stop delivering babies that Obstetricians just don’t have the time to explain to a patient exactly what is happening in their complex bodies during menopause. At Dr. Pam’s menopausal practice, she will take the time to sit down and explain what is happening during this transition enabling women to help make the most informed decisions about their bodies. Dr. Pam believes awareness and education is key to helping women all across the country and across the world understand how women can get through menopause safely, sanely, and well-educated. Treatment will be individually and confidentially tailored for the specific needs of each patient
