Bariatric surgery can significantly change your life in a multitude of ways. One area that can benefit is your love life.
Possible Relationship Changes After Bariatric Surgery
Studies have shown that bariatric surgery promotes an improved quality of life. For some, it helps them become more social and in turn, be more open to dating.
In one study, it shows that bariatric surgery patients are more likely to find a new partner or get married. However, it also shows that there is an increased chance of separation or divorce. One reason is that higher self-esteem may encourage patients to leave unhealthy relationships.
The study emphasized that bariatric surgery doesn’t automatically lead to dysfunctional relationships. Previous studies show that most relationships after bariatric surgery are strengthened or remained unchanged.
Weight Loss Surgery and Your Sex Life
Some studies suggest that bariatric surgery may improve the sex lives of both men and women. These improvements may happen quickly and could be long-lasting too.
For sexually active obese men, this could mean better erections while for women, it could be better arousal, lubrication, and less pain.
There’s also evidence of improvements in orgasm and sexual satisfaction following bariatric surgery.
Bariatric Surgery and Reproductive Health
If conceiving has been a struggle for you, you will be happy to know that bariatric surgery can lead to an improvement in reproductive health.
Several studies have shown that after bariatric surgery, patients could have improved sex profiles and may even have a resolution for their PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), a common hindrance for women to conceive.
In many studies, it shows that there’s an improved maternal and fetal outcome following bariatric surgery compared to untreated obese women.
