In brief: Yes

Ovaries are some times removed with the uterus, if that is the case, then the woman would not have ovarian cancer.
If ovaries are not removed, then the person retains her inherent risk of ovarian cancer.

even if the ovaries are removed, people who have mutation on the BRCA 1 especially /BRCA2, can still develop ovarian cancer- for instance on the abdominal cavity lining.

In brief: Yes but less

Who have hysterectomy with ovaries not removed still get carcinoma of ovary, need regular cheek ups, however incidence will be slightly lower than general population ( who did not have hysterectomy.
