In brief: Depends

Hysterectomies can be partial (leaving in at least one ovary) or total, removing uterous and both ovaries.
In the latter case memopause is induced which can cause more mood symptoms. Some gyns will give hormone replacement if the patient is not already in menopause. Make sure your psychiatrist is informed and can help with adjustments.
