Natural Remedies and Other Substitutes for Climara Pro
Coping Strategies as Climara Pro AlternativesMedications are not always the answer to all menopause symptoms. If you cannot take Climara Pro or other estrogen medications, or if you desire to avoid such medications, you may want to try other, non-drug ways to deal with the symptoms. Getting regular exercise and eating a healthy diet can work wonders for some symptoms. Any measures to improve your overall health will likely help to improve your menopause symptoms as well. Also, there are a variety of vaginal lubricants and moisturizers currently available that can help provide relief from vaginal dryness and irritation. Some are even designed especially for menopausal women.
