Coleen is our practice administrator and has been with the Menopause Center since 2013. She is the first contact you have with our practice helping you with questions about the clinic and scheduling. She enjoys the daily conversations she receives from our clients and the friendships that form.
We are thankful for all the practitioners before us who have passed along the wealth of their experience, their expertise and knowledge that continues to this day.
Since 2008, the Menopause Center of Minnesota has created a unique practice of providing care that is customized to the multiple symptoms and experiences women have with hormonal fluctuations during perimenopause and menopause. We aim to provide relief of those symptoms for an optimal quality of life through the use of bioidentical hormones (estrogens, progesterone and testosterone). We review the options that are available to you and also support you in the decisions you make for your care.
The following symptoms range from being pesky to debilitating:
Hot flashes throughout the day,
night sweats that inhibit getting to sleep, staying asleep and going back to sleep which contribute to both fatigue and insomnia.
Irritability, mood swings
New anxiety and depression
Lack of word recall, cognitive dullness
Symptoms can also impact sexual health such as low libido or lack of sexual response. Vaginal dryness causes not only pain with intercourse but may also contribute to urinary incontinence. Vaginal dryness can also lead to vaginal infections such as yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis.
We are independent and autonomous consulting practice that utilizes bioidentical hormones of estrogens, progesterone and testosterone available through either a commercially available prescription or through a compounding pharmacy.
