If there is no medical reason that says you should not have hormones, by all means keep the ovaries.

Leave them if you can. You are to young to go without your natural hormones. The will probably stop working early because of the removal of the Uterus but you want to avoid early menopause.  The surgery to remove the ovaries keeps getting quicker and simpler. You can always get them removed when you are older.
