Many women have silently suffered with menopause for years: hot flashes, forgetfulness, low sex drive, weight gain, mood changes, joint pains, poor sleep and the list goes on and on.

Each women’s perception of the loss of hormones during menopause is different, which means treatment cant be a one size fits all approach.

At the Shine Menopause Clinic we take a personalized approach to caring for women during menopause. Treatments might include bio-identical hormones as pellets, creams and or patches.

We believe in evaluating our patients thoroughly with extensive labs, routine follow up and a clinical exam where we hear from you and use this to guide treatment.
