THE O-SHOT®

The O-shot® is a revolutionary procedure that uses the same growth factors found in plasma (PRP) that we employ in orthopedic and cosmetic procedures to regenerate urethral, vaginal and clitoral tissues and improve urinary retention, tissue integrity and sexual function.  The O-Shot® has been shown to result in:

  • Stronger, more frequent orgasms

  • Decreased urinary incontinence

  • Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation

  • Increased sexual desire

  • Increased lubrication

 

Community studies indicate that between 25 and 63% of women experience sexual dysfunction varying from disinterest in sex, to difficulty achieving orgasm, to pain with intercourse.  Despite the fact that there are many more treatment options available to men, sexual dysfunction is significantly more prevalent in women than in men.  Unfortunately, relatively few women talk about or seek treatment for it, and there are limited options for those who do.  Additionally, nearly one quarter of women between the ages of 18 and 44 experience urinary incontinence.  Urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction have an intrinsic relationship, as the inability to hold urine can result in self consciousness and lack of confidence as well as manifest as coital incontinence and embarrassment.  Many cases of urinary incontinence and loss of sexual function are related to changes in hormones during menopause or pregnancy, or the trauma of childbirth.  Regardless, the effects on the basic activities of daily living are profound.

 

Beyond counseling and hormone replacement, there are few treatment options for sexual dysfunction available to the female patient, and the pharmaceuticals used for incontinence and overactive bladder have some profound side effects.  Enter the O-shot, a simple in-office procedure that uses the body's own growth factors and healing force to improve tissues and enhance function.  Because the therapy doesn’t include foreign substances (like fillers or medications), the likelihood of reaction or side effects is essentially eliminated and the injections are very well tolerated by most.

 

A comprehensive approach to resolve sexual dysfunction or urinary incontinence begins with the assessment and replacement (if needed) of hormones, however this simply isn’t sufficient for a number of women.  The O-Shot® is a safe way to address the underlying causes of sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence.  A single office visit can be life changing: enhancing orgasms, rekindling sex drive and revitalizing relationships.
