- How to handle annoying hot flashes associated with menopause
Increasing your water consumption is one of the most natural methods for handling annoying hot flashes during menopause. Many times we do not consume the full eight glasses of water needed daily.

Vaginal dryness is just another annoying symptom of menopause. As the amount of moisture in this area of the womans body decreases, so does the estrogen in the body.

You can get these from a nutritional supplement or the foods that you eat and use them to help out with the problem.
