The O-Shot® for Women Is the Next Evolution in Female Sexual Health
The O-shot helps with:
- Decreased urinary incontinence
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Increased natural lubrication
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- More frequent orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina).
- Though each woman’s physiology and outcome is different, these are some of the most common effects observed.
How does it work?
The growth factors in the Platelet Rich Plasma promote healing and attract uni-potent stem cells to the injected region. This in turn regenerates tissue, collagen, elastin and muscle tissue, increasing urinary function and returning sensitivity to the clitoris and G-spot. It also helps treat patients that suffer from Lichen Sclerosus, an uncomfortable and unsightly skin condition that is diagnosed in up to 200,000 females per year.
How Long Does It Take?
It is a relatively simple procedure that is preformed in our office. The whole process takes approximately 1 hour. The procedure it self only takes approximately 10–15 minutes, however the numbing and blood draw prior to the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. You can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, and resume sexual activity as soon as you are comfortable, approximately 3 day. Some women report an immediate improvement in urinary incontinence and/or clitoral sensitivity. This initial period may revert back to pre-procedure levels, and then gradually improve over the course of 4–6 weeks. You can expect continued improvement with full benefits at about the 3 month mark. The O-Shot® may last for up to 18 months or more.
How Many Procedures Does It Take?
The O-Shot® usually produces significant results with just one treatment depending on the severity of the condition and the results you are looking. Subsequent treatments normally add improvements on a bell curve (greater improvements after 2nd and 3rd treatments, tapering off after that). Treatments should be spaced at least 12 weeks apart to give the previous treatment time to achieve full effects.
Does the O-Shot® Hurt?
When you come in for your appointment we apply a numbing cream to the precise area that will be injected. Once the entire area is completely numb, we will apply a bit of ice to the clitoral area and then immediately inject a lidocaine block. This part may have a bit of a pinch and will possibly sting, but it is over with fairly quickly. After this, we proceed with the intra-vaginal injections while the lidocaine block numbs the clitoral area. During this part, you may also feel a pinch and/or some pressure. The majority of women report not feeling any of the injections, however each person experiences sensations differently.
We will walk you through every step of the procedure and make sure you are as comfortable as possible. Different people have different pain thresholds, so please make sure to communicate with our staff.
