Hysterectomy coming up soon...Should I keep my Ovaries?

Hi everyone

I have had fibroids for a few years now. Went for an ultrasound today and found that I have Many fibroids. My tummy has became so large I have to wear loose clothes. A couple of friends asked me if I was expecting again? I'm at my ideal weight and workout 6 days a week. Also I have constant cramping. As of now my periods are normal but I'm sure that will change very soon as my sister and mother had the same issues with fibriods and both had a hysterctomy.

I'm 45 with a great family and done with childbirth.

Any women out there removed their ovaries at my age or younger?
Advantages?? Disadvantages??
I understand I would have to take a hormone pill for a couple of years.
