The process begins with our medical intake and eligibility process here: https://app.bywinona.com/eligibility
During that process you will answer questions about your medical history and current symptoms. You also can specify any questions or concerns you have.
After completing those questions you will be recommended some potential treatment options for you to specify any preferences you have.
Next you will complete a quick identity verification step in order for your assigned physician to verify who you are.
Once this is done you'll complete the process by adding a payment method to your account in case a prescription is written by your physician.
Finally, you'll be taken to your patient portal where you'll be able to message with your Winona doctor. If you or the physician don't have any questions and you're deemed a good candidate for HRT, then the doctor may proceed with prescribing the treatment.
All that said, your doctor will never prescribe treatment without first addressing any questions or concerns. Your doctor will also always be available for continued support through the patient portal.

Some private, or employer related insurance providers may pay for Winona, but it always depends on your insurance plan and deductible. You can pay for your prescription yourself and submit your receipts to your insurance provider for possible reimbursement.
Many of our patients use HSA/FSA or are reimbursed by their insurance provider for their HRT expenses.
For insurance, it's best to contact your company to confirm they reimburse and find out what information they need.
For many providers, it works fine to submit the receipts you automatically receive from us.
In the case your provider requires more information, please reach out to us and we'll generate a specific document for you to submit :)
Menopausal weight gain and the inability to lose weight are based on a litany of factors. The decrease in estrogen and progesterone during menopause are the primary factors.
The calories in vs. the calories out aren’t just the whole story for menopausal women. Yes, calories matter, but in menopause and perimenopause, hormones matter more. Taking HRT can have powerful effects on preventing weight gain.
When monitored and guided by trained medical professionals, HRT is absolutely safe and can improve your health both long-term and short-term. Millions of women have used HRT for decades to help them feel their best.
Winona prescribes bio identical, natural hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that is FDA approved, effective, and derived from yams.
Many people have fears related to HRT due to inaccurate, dated information that was released from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI). The researchers of the WHI have tried to correct the misinformation about the study, but sadly the misinformation is still out there on the internet.
Of course, there are always risks and your Winona physician will be sure to review your medical history for any potential issues. That being said, about 1 in 10,000 women are at risk of developing a serious ailment.
Tests for hormone levels are very inaccurate and therefore not helpful. The hormone levels vary greatly not just day to day but even throughout the day.
HRT is best adjusted based on symptoms. We will be checking in with you periodically to see how your symptoms are responding and recommend dose adjustments based on that.
The body is more sensitive than any laboratory test. The actual lab value isn't really important, what is important is how the body is responding. We are not interested in making the labs look good, we are interested in relieving symptoms. Every one is different in what level of hormones they tolerate without symptoms. The body tells us there is a problem by creating symptoms, that is what we are trying to fix.
