A new study published in JAMA Surgery shows that women who have had weight-loss surgery reap more benefits than just being thin. Women who have had a gastric bypass or Lap-Band surgery are reported to have better sexual functioning and improved reproductive hormone levels.
Researchers have been tracking 106 women who underwent weight-loss surgery in 2005. These women had lost on average 65% of their original body weight were asked to fill out surveys about their sex lives and their blood was tested to measure their hormone levels.
Two years after undergoing weight-loss surgery, the women participating in the study reported having improvements in arousal, lubrication, sexual desire, and sexual satisfaction. Awesome! Way to go girls.
While you would expect that having a better body image post-weight-loss surgery and therefore more confidence in bed to be the sole reason why these women reported having better sexual function, the blood tests showed that the women “experienced significant improvements from year 1 to year 2 in total testosterone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels.”
The human body sure is weird.
So if your reproductive hormones are low and you’re unsatisfied with your sexual function, lose way you fat slob!
