Brief Answer:
There are natural methods to treat menopausal symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear and thanks for your query to Healthcare magic.

I have read your question carefully and I will try to help you .

There are no equivalent natural or non hormonal remedies such as premarin or estrace but exist so many plant that help to relive menopausal symptoms .
black kohosh and primose oil can be used to relive hot flashes
ginseng for mood swings and sleep disturbances

These plants usually exist as supplement pills that are made directly by a trained herbalist.
Hence you can try to by them.

While to treat vaginal atrophy you can try with vaginal moisturizes and lubricants.

Hope I was helpful and please feel free for further discussion.

Bets regards

Brief Answer:
You can use both of them

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear again!

You can use both lubricants and moisturizes.
Lubricants can be used immediately before intercourse while moisturizes can be used every two days to help vaginal dryness.
In the drug store you can buy them with different names ,vary from the state you live.

Meanwhile for the herbal remedies you are using they can relive symptoms of menopause at about 4 weeks after them use and vary from person to person.
