What is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot® is a series of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections into your vaginal and clitoral tissues. It’s a restorative treatment, meaning it helps boost the repair of those tissues while increasing healthy blood flow to the area.
PRP comes from a sample of your blood, which is taken in the office before your injections at Glow Maven Health. The substance includes blood plasma, which is the liquid portion, as well as platelets.
When injected, the platelets signal the release of growth factors to stimulate cell production and repair. The growth factors also tell white blood cells to remove debris and dead cells from the area.
Your provider uses PRP for several treatments at Glow Maven Health because of its versatility. In addition to sexual health treatments like the O-Shot and the P-Shot, it assists with hair restoration, skin rejuvenation, and joint mobility.
What are the benefits of the O-Shot?
O-Shot has considerable benefits for younger and older women alike. Many experience changes related to aging or childbirth, which lead to a decline in sexual function and satisfaction. The O-Shot works to restore the region’s sensitivity and strength.
Some possible benefits you might experience from the O-Shot include:
- Increased lubrication
- Increased sensitivity
- Stronger orgasms
- More frequent orgasms
- Treatment for pain during sex
- Treatment for urinary incontinence
The results of the O-Shot vary from person to person. You won’t experience the full effect immediately, as it takes around three months* for new tissue and blood vessels to develop.
How should I prepare for the O-Shot?
Before getting the O-Shot, you should visit Glow Maven for a consultation. She reviews your medical history and can confirm whether or not you’re a candidate for the injections. She’ll have questions about your sexual health and overall health, and you can ask questions about the procedure and its results.
Before the injections, your provider draws a sample of your blood to process into PRP. She places the sample in a centrifuge where it spins, causing the cells to separate by density. She can then take out the red and white blood cells, leaving behind dense platelets suspended in plasma.
