Coping Strategies as Prempro Alternatives

Medications are not always the answer to menopause symptoms. If you cannot take Prempro or other estrogen medications (or if you desire to avoid such medications), you may want to try other, non-drug ways to deal with symptoms. For instance, a variety of vaginal lubricants and moisturizers are available that can help provide relief from vaginal dryness and irritation. Some are even designed especially for menopausal women. Getting regular exercise and eating a healthy diet can also work wonders for some menopause symptoms.
