In brief: No hormones

After your ovaries are removed your body no longer produces estrogen.
This is surgical menopause. Some patients choose to start estrogen replacement therapy to help relieve these symptoms.

In brief: Hot flashes

You are in surgical menopause because your ovaries were removed and you no longer have the estrogen level you had prior to surgery.
The hot flashes you are describing are a symptom of menopause. Estrogen therapy can relieve the symptoms if they are disruptive. Many women just "wait it out".
