Are you struggling with vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, or lack of sensation? These symptoms affect many women, especially as they mature. If you’ve been experiencing any type of sexual dysfunction, it may be time for the O-Shot.
At Orchidia Medical Group, we offer O-shot treatment for women who want to improve their sex lives. Learn more about the O-Shot in the guide below.
What Causes Female Sexual Dysfunction?
Many factors can cause female sexual dysfunction. If you are experiencing decreased arousal, dryness, or pain during intercourse, it may be due to any of the following factors:
One of the most common causes of female sexual dysfunction is the aging process. As you age, many changes that can affect your vaginal tissue take place in your body. Collagen decline, loss of elasticity, and hormonal fluctuations can all change your vaginal tissue and impact how you respond during sex.
Childbirth is another common cause of vaginal laxity and changes in vaginal tissue. After vaginal child delivery, many women experience a change in their sexual responses and sensations.
Hormonal changes are a leading factor when it comes to sexual dysfunction. Hormonal fluctuations can occur with age, medication use, or certain underlying conditions. When your hormones fluctuate drastically, it can lead to decreased sensation, vaginal dryness, and other symptoms that affect your sex life.
What Is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot is an injectable treatment that can resolve female sexual dysfunction. During an O-Shot treatment, we inject your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into your vaginal tissue to make changes at the cellular level. These changes can provide numerous benefits, including:
- Better orgasms
- Increased lubrication
- Tighter vaginal tissue
- Increased clitoral arousal
- Reduced pain during sex
- Enhanced sexual satisfaction
One of the best things about the O-Shot is that it is a completely non-surgical treatment. You can receive the O-Shot without any incisions, sutures, or recovery process. The entire procedure can be completed in as little as one hour, allowing you to get back to your normal activities as soon as possible.
How Does PRP Treatment Work?
Platelet-rich plasma is the portion of your blood that’s full of platelets. Why are platelets important? As it turns out, your blood’s platelets provide intense healing properties that can do everything from stimulating new cell growth to repairing cellular damage.
When we harvest PRP from blood and inject it into specific areas of the body, it can produce a deeper healing process. This treatment is useful for a variety of concerns, including hair loss, age-related changes, and sexual dysfunction.
The Complete O-Shot Process
Every O-Shot treatment begins with an in-office consultation. We need to meet with you to discuss your symptoms and determine whether the O-Shot can resolve your sexual dysfunction.
Depending on the underlying cause of your symptoms, the O-Shot may not be the best course of treatment. Only a consultation can confirm that the O-Shot is right for you. During your consultation, you can ask any questions you have about the best treatment for your needs.
Preparing for Your Appointment
If you are approved for O-Shot treatment, you will be able to schedule your first session. On the day of your appointment, shower with a mild cleanser. Remain well-hydrated in the hours leading up to your session since we will take a small blood sample when you arrive. There’s no other preparation required for the O-Shot.
The O-Shot Treatment
Your O-Shot session will begin as we draw your blood. We take a small sample to obtain your platelet-rich plasma. Once we have the sample, we spin it down in a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins blood at a rapid speed to separate the PRP from the red blood cells.
When the PRP is separated, we extract it from the vial and fill a new syringe for your injections. Using an ultrafine needle, we then inject your PRP into your vaginal tissue. We can apply a local anesthetic to the vaginal tissue to increase your comfort while the injections are administered.
During this portion of the process, you will be lying down with your legs placed comfortably upward. You’re free to do whatever relaxes you during this time. Some patients read, listen to music, or watch videos on their phones.
The entire O-Shot procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. Once your session is complete, you will be free to return home. You won’t have any recovery process or downtime after you receive the O-Shot.
Your O-Shot Results
It may take several O-Shot sessions to see optimal results from your treatment. Most patients see an improvement after two to five sessions spaced several weeks apart. This schedule allows enough time for your body to respond to the PRP injections and stimulate new cell growth that can revive your vaginal tissue.
When you finish your complete O-Shot treatment regimen, you should experience an increase in sexual arousal, vaginal tightness, lubrication, and orgasms. The rejuvenated vaginal tissue will be able to respond more positively during intercourse, and for some patients, urinary incontinence may even be resolved.
