Winona prescribes estrogen and progesterone in various forms, at appropriate prescription levels. If hormones are taken in excess there can be side effects, like excess hair. So, we implore patients to only take hormones at the levels prescribed by their Winona physician.

We do offer DHEA which is a safe, natural and effective way to increase Testosterone levels, but we do not prescribe testosterone directly. DHEA is provided at clinically safe and appropriate levels which would not cause excess hair growth.

If a woman takes excessive levels of testosterone (which we don't prescribe) she may experience "hirsutism" or excessive growth of hair on her face.

You should not experience hirsutism with estrogen, progesterone or DHEA as prescribed by our Winona physicians.
