Your safety is our top priority. While we would be thrilled to be able to provide HRT for all, we recognize it’s not the right option for everyone. In response, we’ve collaborated with Kindra, a company celebrated for their non-hormonal menopause solutions. Explore Kindra’s range of alternative treatments, including supplements, serums, and more, to help you find the path to feeling like yourself again.
Why HRT isn’t a good fit for everyone...
At Winona, we prioritize patient safety above all else. Upholding the time-honored medical principle of “do no harm,” we’re committed to ensuring the well-being of our patients. To support a safe treatment journey, we thoroughly evaluate your eligibility for HRT during the onboarding process, but certain contraindications may prevent some individuals from being suitable candidates for HRT. Some common contraindications to HRT include, but are not limited to, the following:
Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
Previous DVT, PE, or history of a clotting disorder
Cancer of the female reproductive system (uterus, ovary, or cervix)
Personal history of breast cancer
Previous history of heart attack or history of heart disease
History of transient ischemic attack (TIA)
History of stroke
Active liver disease
Undiagnosed abnormal vaginal bleeding
Being age 60 or older
Why we chose to partner with Kindra

The company promises an impressive commitment to quality, safety, and transparency - principles that we at Winona also value for our patients.
400+ clinical studies support their active ingredient selection
Kindra believes hormone-free, non-prescription solutions should be put to the test: they don’t skip out on novel, patent- pending formulations, rigorous lab tests, and as many consumer studies as they need to get it right.
Rigorous validation requirements from ideation to testing
From cortisol-reducing, blood-flow supporting extracts, to skin-cooling sensates, to the latest innovations in ingredients targeting key cellular pathways...they consider your body’s needs at every level.
Transparency with world-class testing and manufacturing partners
They formulate in FDA-registered and compliant manufacturing facilities and third party lab testing facilities in the US that clear every formula. Their supply chain and ingredient-sourcing process is reviewed by Leaping Bunny to verify every product is cruelty-free.
