Hormone Replacement Therapy

As we move through our menopause transition, we experience what are known as hormonal fluctuations, characterized by symptoms like hot flashes, low libido, vaginal dryness, and even insomnia. Finding the right treatments for these symptoms isn’t always easy, and knowing what’s right can feel daunting. At Winona, our health care providers recommend bioidentical hormones, or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). This treatment involves using bioidentical  estrogen and progestogen to restore dropping hormone levels, which are at the root of your symptoms. 

There are many misconceptions about HRT that can keep women like you from receiving real help with lasting results. Understanding the facts and the pros and cons of HRT can help you decide how you want to move forward with treatment. 

Menopause doesn’t have to mean a loss of control. Learn more about how HRT could help you manage your menopause symptoms. At Winona, our doctors are eager to address any questions and concerns you may have and help determine if HRT is right for you.
