Better Sex and a Healthier Vagina
This is the purpose of the O-Shot®… sort of (I’ll explain more later). In fact, I’ll bottom line the O-Shot® right now and follow up with the boring details later (for those having trouble sleeping – you’re welcome). There is an entire blog post on the benefits of the O-Shot® for urinary stress incontinence. To read it, click HERE.
THE BOTTOM LINE – The O-Shot® involves taking platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your nether regions. The O-Shot® aims to improve blood flow, repair and regenerate damaged tissue, and establish (or re-establish) neural pathways for better sensation and stimulation. This leads to enhanced sexual satisfaction in 90% of those injected and completely resolves urinary stress incontinence in 80% of those injected. All this from a procedure that takes just a few minutes to perform.
R37 – Sexual dysfunction, unspecified
There is no clear billable medical diagnostic code for women’s sexual dysfunction. Female sexual arousal disorder is currently a contested diagnostic code – meaning many insurance companies do not accept it. Up until 2016, the closest diagnostic code was psychosexual dysfunction, unspecified. While men have had testicular hypofunction and erectile dysfunction as diagnostic codes since the dawn of diagnostic codes, until recently, women had PSYCHOsexual dysfunction as a diagnostic code. Recent surveys suggest that only 14% of women have a conversation with their physician about sex while, at least, 40% of women suffer with severe sexual dysfunction – likely with many more having some lesser degree of sexual dysfunction. This low percentage of women talking about sex with their physician must be largely due to fact that most physicians avoid the subject. And they likely avoid the subject because they don’t know what to do about it. Well, I do.
The Female Orgasm System – briefly
In order to understand the need for the O-Shot® you have to understand that there is a a female orgasm system. Just like there is a circulatory system, respiratory system, and nervous system all made up of a multitude of parts, there is a female orgasm system that is equally, if not more so, complex. The first step in treating sexual dysfunction is the admission of knowing that such a system exists and having an understanding of how it all fits together. The O-Shot® addresses many, but not all parts of this system.
The O-Shot® can help:
- Decreased libido (sex drive)
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Dryness (with resulting painful intercourse) from Menopause or from Breast Cancer Treatment
- Decreased ability to orgasm
- Urge urinary incontinence
- Lichen sclerosus
- Lichen planus
- Postpartum fecal incontinence
- Chronic pain from trauma from child birth (episiotomy scars)
- Chronic pain from mesh
- Chronic interstitial cystitis
How long does this life changing procedure take? Does it hurt? What are the risks?
From start to finish it’s about 60 minutes. We first place numbing cream at the site of the injection to let it have enough time to work while we prepare the injection. Blood is then drawn and processed. The procedure itself takes less than 5 minutes to perform. During the PRP injection you might feel a brief burning sensation, but no pain. You can drive yourself home and resume regular activities immediately after the procedure. Most common side effects are some minor bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Since the PRP is from your own blood, there are no risks of an allergic reaction.
How soon will I feel the results?
You may feel results immediately, but this is due to the volume of the PRP injected. Over the next three days, some of the volume is absorbed by the body. Then there is growth of new tissue that continues for at least 12 weeks which causes the vaginal tightening, increased sensitivity and lubrication and decrease in the incidence of stress incontinence.
