Aside from the other health benefits of weight loss surgery, new research shows that women who lose weight after bariatric surgery gain a more satisfying sex life.
According to a study published by JAMA Surgery, women reported improvements in their arousal, sexual desire and overall sexual satisfaction, just two years after bariatric surgery.
Additionally, women also had improved self-esteem, felt less depressed and were more comfortable with their body image according to the research.
“This is another good study that shows bariatric surgery helps patients in a number of ways,” said Dr. Jaime Ponce, president of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. ”By losing weight, it allows you to balance your good sexual hormones that control the menstrual cycle,” Ponce said. “It allows them to experience improved sexual function.”
