The HPV is not likely going to cause you any problems. Although Vaginal and vulvar cancer are still possible, they are not nearly as common as cervical cancer. You need some blood work, (FSH, LH, Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, etc). Time to call your family doctor!

In brief: Night sweats

Your symptoms are suggestive of a natural menopause, but your age is slightly early.
This may be due to an interruption of the ovarian blood supply resulting from the hysterectomy. A simple test of your serum fsh will confirm menopause. You have several options of treating or not treating your symptoms. See your gyn.

In brief: Perimenopause?

Several possible causes, but at age 44 impending menopause would be near the top of the list.
You need evaluation, a minimim of some focused blood testing, to say for sure. The hpv isn't a factor.
