Sexual Life after Weight Loss Surgery

Obese women and men who lose significant amount of weight after weight loss surgery may have more satisfying sex than in their past life. Obesity can cause various problems in men and women that can greatly affect their sexual life. So, undergoing weight loss surgery may help in enhancing their sexual life.

For obese men, shortness of breath and erectile dysfunction can greatly affect their sexual life. Obese men after undergoing a weight loss surgery, they have increased levels of testosterone that can benefit during the intercourse.

For obese women, estrogen is stored in the fat. These women after undergoing a weight loss surgery feel an increase in their libido.

Weight loss and declining BMIs in men who had the surgery were directly linked with increases in all measures of testosterone levels, declines in levels of the female sex hormone estradiol and improvements in self-reported sexual quality of life.

The physical, physiological and psycho emotional changes which occur following weight loss surgery can have positive effects on the person's sexual life.
