Journal / Menopause


Menopause can be a sensitive topic — no one wants to feel like they’re getting “old.” Speculations about menopause create stigmas and actually prevent women from getting the support and treatment they need - and deserve! - during this stage of their lives. 

To put it simply, menopause is the conclusion of your reproductive cycle: the point at which you’ve gone twelve months without a period. Leading up to this point, you’ll be in perimenopause. This significant phase is marked by the eventual ceasing of monthly menstruation, drops in hormone levels, and symptoms that result from those hormonal fluctuations, like hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and low libido.

Just because menopause can be defined simply, doesn’t mean the experience is easy. The menopause transition can be overwhelming — some women begin this season of life as early as in their 30s, and many struggle with managing symptoms. Here at Winona, we’re focused on taking care of you and supporting you on this journey. Find out more about your menopausal transition and your symptoms, and learn how to manage them, so you can get on with living your best life.
