Are you an overweight female who is experiencing reduction in sex drive, difficulty becoming aroused, inability to achieve orgasm, a strong dislike of sexual activity, or pain with sexual activity or intercourse? Have you had weight loss surgery? If so, you will find these study results done by Dale S. Bond, assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior, and colleagues at Miriam Hospital and Brown University very intriguing. Using Female Sexual Function Index scores, they found that Female Sexual Dysfunction resolved in 23 out of 34 women six months after bariatric surgery, and improvements in scores were seen in all 38 patients who received the Lap-Band surgery and in all 16 patients who received the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. These results were seen regardless of the percentage of excess weight loss. Therefore, weight loss surgery not only improves one’s self esteem but also can improve one’s sex life!
