Yes: Black cohosh and soy are two of the most commonly used over-the-counter supplements.
Other supplements like chasteberry, flaxseed, st. John's wort, and vitamin C may have some benefit but are not as widely used as black cohosh and soy.

Yes: Black cohosh has been shown in some studies to show some benefit. There are also some yam products which have some studies supporting its use.
