What are other ways to treat symptoms of menopause?

ANSWER

Prescription and over-the-counter meds for vaginal dryness and sleep problems can help. You can try topical estrogen, lubricants, and non-estrogen prescriptions for vaginal dryness and painful sex.

Acupuncture, meditation, and relaxation techniques are harmless ways to ease the stress of menopause, and some people believe they help. Many women also try herbal or natural remedies. Talk to a doctor before trying any of these.
