Hi there,
Ovestin mainly helps with vaginal dryness. Only small amounts of the oestrogen is absorbed into the system. Therefore it is not effective in treating hot flushes or other systemic menopausal symptoms such as poor sleep and mood disturbances. For the systemic symptoms, you would require other forms of HRT.
