Hi, for urogenital symptoms local vaginal estrogen is enough, but your symptoms are more like VASOMOTOR symptoms, where you will feel waves of hot and cold flashes. I think you probably need Oral estrogen and progesterone therapy(Hormone Replacement). And your Vulval symptoms must be evaluated to rule out any local lesions, it could be a sign of any serious condition.
Hope the answer for the question,
