While most people are familiar with male erectile dysfunction and its various treatment options, female sexual health and its associated therapies are discussed much less often. In fact, many women aren’t even aware that there are treatments and procedures available to address a wide variety of female sexual health complaints. Board-certified gynecologist Dr. Marcel Thompson and the knowledgeable team at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center are proud to offer a number of safe, effective, and exciting options to help Houston, TX area women restore their sexual health and feel better than ever.
Without a doubt, the O-Shot® is one of the most popular sexual enhancement therapy options performed at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center, and it is easy to see why! The long list of benefits that the O-Shot has to offer make it a fantastic option for women seeking a boost in the bedroom. Read on to learn more about the O-Shot and why it may be a perfect solution for you.
How can the O-Shot help my sex life?
Just as the rest of the body begins to show signs of aging over time, the vagina also experiences the effects of the aging process. Vaginal atrophy, decreased clitoral sensation, and vaginal dryness are just a few of the sexual health issues that women may begin to notice as they reach a certain age. Fortunately, the O-Shot can improve these symptoms, as well as many others, and truly turn back the clock when it comes to female sexual health. Some of the most exciting benefits of the O-Shot include:
- Tighter vagina
- Healthier vaginal tissue
- Less discomfort with sexual intercourse
- Increased vaginal lubrication
- Increased clitoral sensation
- Increased level of sexual arousal
- Stronger, more frequent orgasms
- Increased sexual desire
In many senses, the O-Shot simply improves the health and functionality of the vagina, restoring the sexual health a woman may have had in her youth. With the ability to enjoy sex again, many women also report better self-confidence and an improvement in their relationship.
How does the O-Shot work?
You may be familiar with PRP therapy and its applications in skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and other cosmetic treatments. PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is also the main component of O-Shot therapy. PRP therapies work by isolating a patient’s plasma from the blood. This plasma is full of enzymes and growth factors that promote the generation of new, healthy, youthful tissues. Because PRP is taken from a patient’s own blood, the risk of adverse reaction during PRP therapy treatments, including the O-Shot, is very low.
During your O-Shot session at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center, you will lie down in a comfortable, private treatment room. One of the expert technicians will begin by drawing blood from your arm, which will then be separated using our state-of-the-art centrifuge machine. This process isolates the platelet-rich plasma from blood. The PRP will be prepared in a syringe, and Dr. Thompson will carefully inject it into the upper vagina and clitoris. While most patients tolerate the treatment very well, Dr. Thompson is happy to provide a topical anesthetic, if desired, to help make the injections more comfortable.
Immediately following your O-Shot, you will be able to resume your normal daily activities. While you may experience some minor swelling or discomfort at the injection sites, it should resolve quickly. Patients do not have to wait to begin engaging in sexual activity, though it may take 2 – 3 weeks for the results of the O-Shot to become fully apparent.
How long does the O-Shot last?
While the longevity of results can vary from patient to patient, the majority of women are able to enjoy the effects of a single O-Shot treatment for up to 12 –18 months before an additional injection is needed. In some cases, patients may opt to have a second injection performed shortly after the first in order to boost their results, but they will need to wait at least eight weeks between treatments.
Is there a male equivalent of the O-Shot?
Yes! Dr. Thompson also offers the highly effective P-Shot for men seeking an enhancement in their sexual health, improved sexual function, and even an increase in the size and girth of their penis. In fact, many male and female partners in the Houston, TX area choose to get the O-Shot and P-Shot simultaneously. If you have further questions about the P-Shot, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Thompson for more information.
