Aging, stress, medical procedures, childbirth — these are just a few things that can make it hard for you to stay sexually vibrant and satisfied. Luckily, advances in medicine have made it easier than ever to reclaim a healthy sex life. The O Shot® also relieves urinary stress incontinence. Dr. Eric Deal of Total Body Therapy of Georgia offers many methods, including the O Shot®, to help restore your sexual response so you can enjoy intimacy again, no matter what your age.
What is the O Shot® procedure?
The O Shot® is a nonsurgical procedure that helps to restore the sexual response and increase orgasm intensity in women. We obtain a small blood sample with a simple blood draw from your arm. The blood is processed in the lab, and the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted and placed in a syringe. The PRP is injected into the numbed clitoris and numbed upper vaginal area. PRP stimulates the growth of new tissue and improves sensitivity in the treated area. Women who opt for the O Shot® procedure may experience:
- Heightened sexual sensitivity
- Relief from urinary or stress incontinence
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- A tighter, firmer feeling in the vaginal area
- Increased natural lubrication during sex
- Decreased pain during sex
The O Shot® procedure is performed in the office. The treatment area is numbed before injection, so most women report feeling no pain.
How is the O Shot® different than hormone therapies?
The O Shot®, instead of treating the hormonal side of the sexual response, addresses the physical tissue of the vagina and clitoris directly. Studies have found PRP effective in regenerating and rejuvenating tissue in other parts of the body, and the O Shot® brings this powerful treatment to an area of medicine where, historically, women have had few options.
An added benefit of the O Shot® is its demonstrated ability to help relieve urinary or stress incontinence, a condition that affects women of all ages, but particularly older women. Urinary incontinence is marked by the ill-timed, unintentional loss of urine during physical activity. It can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. The O Shot® also increases vaginal lubrication without the use of pharmaceuticals.
Are there risks associated with the O Shot®?
Your personal medical history determines whether or not you’re a good candidate for the O Shot® procedure. For healthy adult women, the O Shot® usually is risk-free. At Total Body Therapy of Georgia we have qualified practitioners who can administer the O Shot®. If you’d like to discuss the O Shot®, call the office and schedule an appointed today.
