Options Other Than Estraderm

Coping Strategies as Estraderm Alternatives

Medications are not always the answer to all menopause symptoms. If you cannot take Estraderm 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 menopause symptoms.

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.
