Michelle Heaton has revealed she’s found a new confidence in the bedroom after curing her ’embarrassing’ incontinence. The former Liberty X singer, 40, said the way she embraces sex has improved after her long-running battle with the medical condition left her feeling ‘vulnerable.’
Mum-of-two Michelle told MailOnline she suffered from a ‘lack of feeling’ during intercourse following the birth of her children Faith, eight, and AJ, six, and having a hysterectomy at 35. Michelle, who credits her new confidence in the bedroom with husband Hugh Hanley to Silk’n Tightra’s home vaginal rejuvenation device, said: ”Lets say why wouldn’t it improve my sex life?”
‘‘It has definitely made sex feel different which is the easiest way to say it. It’s not about when you want it it’s about how it feels. Following the birth of my children and the hysterectomy, incontinence and lack of feeling and so on has been something that is very prominent in my life. Trust me incontinence was a massive thing for me.”
Michelle had a hysterectomy to stop her getting cancer after testing positive for the BRCA2 gene. The singer, who is mum to Faith and Aaron with Hugh, was given a 60 per cent chance of developing breast cancer and a 20 per cent chance of ovarian cancer when she tested positive for the BRCA2 gene in 2012.
She had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery in 2012, followed by a full hysterectomy in 2015, after the birth of her second child. Michelle would have loved a third baby – but while she’s unable to have more children, she’s decided to become a mum again to an eight-week old puppy. She said: ”I’m getting a silver Labrador and she comes in a week.”
The TV personality confessed to finding homeschooling her son difficult as he struggles with his breathing, vision and has recently been tested for dyslexia.
