How Long Does It Take for the O-Shot to Work?
As women age, issues such as vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse are common but unwanted. Thanks to breakthrough technology, a procedure called the O-Shot® is helping individuals improve their female sexual health without any surgery or downtime. In Bellaire, TX, board-certified gynecologist and obstetrician Dr. Marcel Thompson is specially trained to provide this state-of-the-art procedure and improve your quality of life.
So what are some of the benefits of the O-Shot, and how long does the O-Shot last? When you visit Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center, we can address your questions while creating a custom treatment plan for you. Women often notice results following the O-Shot and results only improve over time. If you would like to discover the advantages of this procedure, contact our facility in the Greater Houston, TX area for an appointment.
Who should get the O-Shot?
Also called the orgasm shot, the O-Shot works by using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood to effectively treat issues related to sexual performance and satisfaction. The PRP stimulates cells and blood vessels in the area while encouraging the growth of collagen in the area. Both safe and nonsurgical, the O-Shot is used to treat vaginal dryness and many post-menopausal symptoms. Other benefits of the O-Shot include:
Relief from painful intercourse
Increased clitoral arousal and sensitivity
Increased arousal from g-spot stimulation
More intense and frequent orgasms
Since PRP is created from your own blood, adverse reactions or complications from the O-Shot are very rare. Women who are pregnant or nursing, however, cannot be considered for the O-Shot at this time. Dr. Thompson will perform an examination and make sure you do not have any active infections. If you do have a medical issue that needs to be treated first, our office can make some recommendations and review alternative treatments in the meantime.
How is the O-Shot performed?
During a private consultation at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center, Dr. Thompson will speak with you one-on-one to understand your goals related to sexual health and wellness. This includes addressing any problems related to vaginal dryness or a lack of vaginal sensation when having sexual intercourse. The O-Shot is performed at our office in just under an hour, so you can return to your day shortly after your appointment. Dr. Thompson can provide a numbing cream or topical anesthetic to make you feel more at ease.
Once we are ready to begin, a member of our staff will take a small amount of blood from your arm to extract the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is separated using our highly advanced centrifuge machine. Dr. Thompson performs the orgasm shot by carefully administering the injection into the upper vagina and clitoris. Our staff may give you a short set of guidelines to follow at home to ensure a safe recovery. We encourage you to call Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center if you have concerns following treatment in Bellaire, TX.
How long does the O-Shot last?
So what is recovery like, and how long does the O-Shot last? Patients in the Greater Houston, TX area may notice some sensitivity at the injection sites, but, generally, minimal, if any, pain or discomfort is to be expected from the O-Shot. Since there is no downtime after treatment, women can resume sexual intercourse the same day or the following day. There is an immediate volumizing effect that lasts up to a week, which can make sex more pleasurable. More benefits are noticeable in 2 – 4 weeks, while the biggest improvements occur at six weeks.
Based on your age and vaginal health, the effects of the orgasm shot may last up to three years or longer. Many women choose to have periodic O-Shot treatments over time to enhance their female sexual health and address future problems as they occur. If this is the case, speak with a member of our team at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center so we can make suggestions about when to schedule your future appointments.
