Rev It Up with the PRP “O-Shot”
Westport | Fairfield CT
For many women, lack of sexual desire or other changes to their sexual health and satisfaction, are challenges that can arise at various points in their lives — after childbirth, a medical issue or with menopause. Whatever the reason, it’s a health concern that can have a serious impact on our moods, relationships and overall well being!
Thankfully, a relatively new treatment called the “O-Shot” or “orgasm shot” has shown promise in treating various types of sexual dysfunction. The procedure uses Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) taken from the patient’s own body and injects it into the clitoris and inside the vagina. This encourages cell renewal which thickens vaginal tissue and stimulates lubrication. The thickened tissue adds support to the urethra, reducing stress incontinence. A thicker vaginal wall with improved lubrication vastly diminishes discomfort associated with intercourse. By improving neural growth, PRP makes the areas more sensitive to stimulation and arousal. The effects of the O-Shot have been shown to last for up to a year or more.
Another great part of this procedure — as with all PRP procedures — is that the substance used is from your own body and therefore there’s little to no risk of allergic reaction. Call the office for a consultation about this exciting new procedure.
Boost Your “O” with Complementary Treatments
For women who have struggled with discomfort and aesthetic dissatisfaction from lax, floppy tissue in their vaginal area can benefit from a labiaplasty procedure which can be done at the same time as your in-office O-Shot. Add on a Vampire Wing Lift® to bring moisture and fuller, more robust, youthful tissue to this area.
PRP "O" Shot FAQs
The good news is that this is a very safe procedure using your own plasma along with some numbing solution at the injection sites. As with any medical procedure, make sure to select an experienced and trained doctor (Dr. Mahony is trained to provide the O-Shot) who follows proper protocols for both processing your blood and for performing safe, sterile injections. Following those guidelines — and what we’ve read and experienced with the O-Shot, there should be minimal risk of negative side effects.
