In brief: Hormonal Change

You may have had significant blood loss and this may have affected the pituitary gland which coordinates your homones.
This sometimes happens in this scenario. If recent, it could also just be that your body is recovering from the stress of recent hospitalization but if it was not recent it could be a more significant change. Either way your should make an appointment to see your doctor.
