Hot Flashes at 37!!!

I had my surgery last November, luckily I kept my ovaries, (atleast I thought I was lucky). For the last 7 weeks I've been having the worst hot flashes, atleast that's what I'm calling them. They start like a furnace in my chest and the heat goes up my neck and across my shoulders and lasts for atleast 3 or 4 minutes. Last night between 5pm & 9 pm I counted 4 of them , and once I went to bed I didn't bother trying to remember how many I had throughout the night. My libido is zip, zero, zilch. AND I'm only 37! I thought late 30's women were supposed to hit their prime, and instead I'm making every excuse to keep my husband busy with other hobbies. I've been to see my gyno and she tested my hormones but supposedly they came back in the normal range. This morning I bought some promensil, which is supposed to help with the hot flashes & supposed to be natural. Any suggestions? or maybe there's another blood test that I could have my gyno take that may show something else??? Any & ALL suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I would give the Promensil at least up to 4 weeks to work. Herbs are a little bit slower because they are plant estrogens.
I went to my doctor when I had my ovaries and having hot flashes, and he said he would not give me a test because a lot of the time they are not accurate because the ovaries have highs and lows daily and hourly when they are slowing down. He goes by my symptoms and we started with low dose hrt patch. If you try over the counter things, and they don't help you, then ask your doctor for low dose patch or pill to see if it helps. You might be on it short term just till you get through the menopause.

Sometimes ovaries earlier than expected, here is a link on it:
