Bariatric surgery improves sexual life experience after five years

Approximately half of women and men who reported pre-surgical dissatisfaction with sexual life experienced post-surgical improvements in satisfaction five years after bariatric surgery, according to researchers in the school of pharmacy at North Dakota State University, Fargo.
