You are having hot flushes?  It suggests your amount of estrogen has dropped from what your body was getting before.  Ask the doctor.  He or she might want to test your estrogen level in your blood, or might just interpret that the hot flushes mean your estrogen level is a little low.

Thankyou for your reply, I found that two gyn doctors didn't care to test
the hormone levels in my blood, you must demand
to be tested or they won't bother..we really need to know whats going
on with our bodies to some extent before we enter the office..
I would love to have not just my estrogen levels tested but the progesterone
and testosterone checked also..
