Many women suffer in silence when it comes to talking about sexual problems. Menopause, child-birth and even the natural ageing process can result in a loss of sensation, decreased sexual enjoyment and functional issues in the vaginal region. The O-Shot®, or Orgasm Shot®, is a pioneering new non-surgical technique which involves Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) being injected into the vagina in order to rejuvenate it and enhance sexual pleasure. The treatment can also improve function and relieve conditions such as stress urinary incontinence.
How does the O-Shot® work?
The O-Shot® procedure works by using the body’s natural ability to heal and rejuvenate itself by injecting growth factor rich Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the vagina to stimulate a regenerative process. It is the same technique used for the Vampire Facelift® whereby a small amount of blood is taken from the arm and then placed in a centrifuge where the plasma is then harvested. This plasma contains cell-regenerating growth factors, which, when injected into the vagina, trigger stem cells to grow healthier vaginal tissue.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
There are a number of sexual arousal disorders that the O-Shot® can be used to addresses. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 20 women suffer from Female Sexual Arousal Disorder, which means that, while they may want to have sex, they find it difficult to get aroused, experience pleasure or achieve orgasm. Around 5% of women are also thought to suffer from Female Orgasmic Disorder, where they can become aroused by have difficulty achieving orgasm. Some women also suffer with pain during and after sex, which is not from decreased lubrication or vaginal spasm, some suffer from stress urinary incontinence especially after delivery, If you have any of these problems then the O-Shot® could be a solution for you. As with any treatment, you will need to have a consultation with a qualified and trained MSS Provider first in order to assess your suitability and rule out any contraindications.
Does it hurt?
As a non-surgical solution, there is minimal pain and discomfort associated with the O-Shot® treatment with some patients reporting experiencing no pain at all. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic to minimize any pain.
How long does it take?
The treatment will take around 40 minutes.
Is there any downtime/recovery time?
One of the big advantages of the O-Shot® treatment is that you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. Sexual intercourse can even be resumed the same day.
