The O-shot is an injection of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) derived from the patient’s own blood; the PRP is injected into the tissues of the superior vaginal wall in addition to the clitoral area. The aim of this procedure is to introduce some growth factors and in so doing to activate stem cells to develop into healthy mature cells, which replace and rejuvenate the cells found in the area. In females, this procedure promotes healing, improves the health of cells, improves sensation and improves the quality of the tissue. The O-shot may also increase the elasticity and tone of the area and in doing so may reduce stress incontinence and increase sex drive and sexual satisfaction in women.
The O-shot may help menopausal and mature women experiencing dryness and pain during sex by rejuvenating cells in the area.
Younger women experiencing laxity in the vaginal area following childbirth may also benefit from the elasticity and tone promoting and rejuvenating effects of this procedure.
Stress incontinence restricts the life and activities of many formerly active women. Fears of leaking prevent some women from participating in vigorous exercise that they previously enjoyed. The O-shot may help to reduce stress incontinence and in doing so many women find they can resume the active lifestyle that was beneficial to their health and overall wellbeing.
Some of the people who might benefit from this procedure have:
1.Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (Low desire). Remember, that this is not counted a disorder unless it’s disrupting the woman’s life. Around 10% of women suffer with this problem. Important: Suffering with a sexual disorder does not simply make sex not fun. Better sex leads to more energy, more creativity, increased confidence, less depression, and improved overall health, healthy and more stable marriages and relationships.
2.Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (usually but not always accompanies Sexual Desire Disorder). Women who suffer with this may want to have sex but have much difficulty finding the pleasure of arousal. The 5% incidence doesn’t sound like much until you think about it–that’s the same as one in 20!
3.Female Orgasmic Disorder: Again around 1 in 20 (or 5%). Here women can become aroused but have much difficulty with orgasm. This can be so frustrating that sex becomes a frustration that they avoid.
4.Dyspareunia: Here the woman suffers with real pain with sex (not from decreased lubrication or vaginal spasm). The incidence is from around 1 in 10 to 1 in 5 women!
