Sexual dysfunction is all too common in females, affecting up to 40% of women. Sexual dysfunction includes the inability to have an orgasm, pain during sex, low libido, and difficulty becoming aroused.
The good news is that there are many treatments available to help restore your sex drive, including hormone replacement therapy and the O-Shot® 一 both of which are available here at PRP in Philadelphia.
Each treatment works differently to address various aspects of sexual dysfunction. Hormone replacement therapy restores balance to your hormones while the O-Shot, or orgasm shot, increases pleasure and sensitivity during intimacy.
Below, Dr. Stuart Kauffman zeros in on the O-Shot and explains how it helps restore sexual pleasure and what to expect after your O-Shot treatment.
Learning more about the O-Shot
Before we look at what the O-Shot is or how it works, let’s review the anatomy of your blood. Your blood contains red cells, white cells, and platelets (this accounts for about 45% of your blood volume). All of this is suspended in a liquid called plasma, which accounts for about 55% of your blood volume.
The O-Shot is a nonsurgical, nondrug treatment designed to combat sexual dysfunction by using a serum that contains concentrated amounts of your platelets. The O-Shot is a type of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
To prepare your O-Shot serum, Dr. Kauffman takes a blood sample (just a quick blood draw!) and prepares it in a centrifuge. This allows him to separate the plasma (the liquid portion of your blood) from the platelets, a part of your blood that contains more than 35 healing substances.
There are no synthetic ingredients, medications, or drugs in your O-Shot. It’s entirely based on your own blood.
What to expect during your O-Shot
Before administering the PRP serum, Dr. Kauffman applies a gentle topical numbing cream to your vaginal area. Then, he administers a local anesthetic followed by the PRP serum into your clitoris, labia, and G spot. The whole process takes just a few short minutes.
What to expect after your O-Shot treatment
Most patients can head home soon after their O-Shot, and there’s no downtime. You may notice a little swelling or redness at the injection sites, but that’s normal.
You may experience an increase in sensitivity and pleasure within a few days of your treatment, but keep in mind that the full results typically peak around the three-month mark. This is because it takes time for your body to start producing more collagen and improved tissues.
Many women can expect the following effects from their O-Shot:
- Increased natural lubrication
- Increased sensation during sexual intimacy
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Increased frequency and intensity of orgasm from penetrative sex
- Smoother and more youthful vulvar skin
- Improvement in urinary incontinence
- Decreased pain during sex
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
Most importantly, you can expect a boost in self confidence and pleasure so you can enjoy intimate times comfortably again.
Thinking about the O-Shot?
Because the O-Shot is made from your own blood, it’s generally tolerated quite well. If you’re struggling with sexual dysfunction, don’t suffer in silence.
