Thanks for your question.
There are many medical options to deal with irregular & heavy periods associated with PCOS. Many minimally invasive surgical techniques are also available.
In addition you are quite young for a hysterectomy which is a major surgery with many complications.
Take a Gynecological opinion by personally visiting & excluding other causes of irregular heavy bleeding ( other than PCOS) & to discuss medical treatment.
Wish you good health.
Take care.
