More women than ever are searching for effective home remedies for menopause symptoms. But research shows that just 45% of menopausal women find it easy to shop for products that meet their needs [1].

What to consider when shopping for natural menopause remedies   

From menopause hair loss to mood swings to vaginal dryness. Menopause symptoms can take a toll on body and mind (check out GenM’s 48 symptoms of menopause for the full whack.) Choosing the right products to support your brain and body through this transition is crucial. Not sure where to start? Consider the tips below to help you get started.   

  • FDA clearance.  

When it comes to medical devices of any kind, FDA clearance is a must. Products such as vaginal moisturizers are classed as medical devices. It’s better to err on the side of caution when it comes to what you are putting in your body. AH! YES VM (Vaginal moisturizer), AH! YES WB (water-based lubricant), AH! YES OB (oil-based lubricant) and AH! YES COCO (coconut oil-based lubricant) all have FDA clearance. 

  • Ingredients.  

Whether you’re searching for a face cream, shampoo, or supplement- ingredients matter. Be especially cautious with cosmetics or foods with added hormones, as these can interfere with HRT. We always recommend choosing certified organicwherever possible.  

 Always consult your doctor if you are unsure if an ingredient is safe for you.  


  • Professional recommendations and reviews.   

With so many products claiming to relieve menopause symptoms, how can you tell what actually works? Recommendations from medical professionals are key to successfully navigating the world of women’s health. Brands usually display recommendations like badges of honor, so they shouldn’t be hard to find. Look out for recommendations from gynecologists, menopause specialists, doctors and clinics or organizations that specialize in researching menopause.
