Hello Alessandra,
Removal of your ovaries wont affect you sex drive much because you are already menopausal and oestrogen secretion was already low.Normally after lap surgery,3-4 weeks one can resume all activities including sex.With your doctor's consent it can be earlier too if your recovery is good.

welcome to healthcaremagic
you may be under resting after surgery.There is nothing to worry about your normal sexual life after surgery. You will recover your normal habit after resting for some weeks. Continue with follow before healing of surgery scar and medicine finish. Need to recover fast so need nourished food protein diet.
Take care
