Sharon Whiteley, from Manchester, says she suffered from a very low sex drive before the fibroid was removed
A mother has claimed her hysterectomy to treat a 7lb tumour has turned her into a sex addict.
Sharon Whiteley, from Manchester, says she suffered from a very low sex drive before the fibroid was removed.
But since the op, the 46-year-old has ramped up her love life and has slept with more than ten men.
The freelance model and hairdresser trainee told The Sun: ‘Sex is on my brain 99 per cent of the time. The younger the man, the better.
‘I had three last week, all in their early 20s. One stayed four days. I can only put it down to the surgery.
‘I never felt my body was compatible with it. I suffered heavy periods lasting around 12 days. I don’t have them now. It’s fantastic.’
A University of Maryland study found that contrary to popular belief, the sex life of most women improves dramatically following hysterectomy.
Along with an increased desire for sex, women had sex more often, had stronger and more frequent orgasms, and experienced less pain during intercourse, the study said.
Thirteen hundred Maryland women from all walks of life were interviewed during the two-year study.
After surgery, women reported significant improvements in every aspect of sexual functioning measured by the study.

‘We realize that our findings may be controversial,’ said Dr. Kristen Kjerulff, Ph.D., associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and principal investigator for the study.
‘The common perception has been that hysterectomy leads to sexual problems, but our evidence shows the opposite.
‘For most women, the surgery actually improves sexual functioning.’
