In brief: It depends

You seem to be too young to be experiencing hot flashes.
You may be in premature ovarian failure or premature menopause. The exact cause of pof is unknown. Most think that it is an autoimmune problem, whereby somehow the body is shutting down the ovary. You need to see a specialist to be evaluated asap, especially if you are still considering having children.
