Sexual Wellness for Women
Sex has become a centerpiece of modern culture. It is up for discussion everywhere: on the radio, on TV, in the movies and even in unexpected places, like at the office or in schools. But the one place sex isn't being discussed is in your doctor's office - an omission that can keep you from achieving and maintaining an optimal sex life - for your whole life. Female sexual dysfunction is not a small problem: 50% of women experience some degree of low libido and sexual dysfunction.
The O-Shot® is a nonsurgical treatment that uses a patient's own blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate the female orgasm system. Within 3 weeks this rejuvenation will allow more blood to flow to the organ, enhancing sensitivity and delivering dramatic improvement in sexual function.
How Does the O-Shot® Work?
The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw right here in the comfort of our office. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets are separated and concentrated utilizing an FDA approved kit. The PRP that contains growth factors that are extracted from your blood will then be injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for sexual response. These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection along with a simple nerve block, to allow patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure. Seriously, pain scales range from 0-1 out of 10 when patients rate their level of discomfort with the procedure.
The process of injection of the PRP triggers the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become "younger" with improved functional potential.
Benefits of the O-Shot® Procedure
Although each woman's experience may differ in some ways, many patients report:
Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
More frequent orgasms
Increased sexual desire
Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
Increased natural lubrication
Decreased or resolved urinary incontinence
If you are seeking solutions to urinary incontinence, the O-Shot®, in conjunction with pelvic floor physical therapy, has been shown to be effective and it can bring women relief for the long term. In fact, after the O-Shot®, some women have reported a complete reversal of symptoms, eliminating the need for medication, and, in many cases, surgery. The O-Shot® can also be used in conjunction with Thermi-Va® which is also performed at Inner Balance Pelvic Health & Wellness Center.
