What is women’s sexual health?

Women’s sexual health encompasses an array of issues that affect sexual desire, sexual functioning, hormones, and genital tissues. Female sexual disorder affects many women at some point during their lifetimes, which may cause vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, urinary incontinence, and loss of sexual desire.

What are the risk factors for women’s sexual health issues?

Various factors can contribute to decreased arousal and low sex drive in women, such as:

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Menopause
  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Medical conditions
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Other psychological issues
  • Depression
  • Trauma

Do You Suffer from /any of The Following?

  • Accidents when you jump, laugh, or cough
  • Leaks when you wait too long
  • Difficulty being aroused
  • Troubke reaching Orgasm
  • Painful sex
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Lichen Sclerous

Carolinas Health and Wellness offers the O-Shot, which contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood to enhance your sexual health and wellness. Your specialist injects PRP into vaginal and nearby tissues to improve sexual functioning. 

What are the benefits of O-Shots for women’s sexual health?

Some of the many benefits you can expect when choosing O-Shots for women include:

  • Increased blood circulation
  • Heightened vaginal and clitoral sensitivity
  • Increased vaginal lubrication 
  • Stronger vaginal walls
  • Improved sexual functioning
  • Increased sexual desire
  • Improved sexual arousal
  • Tightened vaginal opening
  • Increased strength and frequency of orgasms
  • Less pain with intercourse
  • Decreased urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is common among women due to childbirth, menopause, aging, or other circumstances that cause the body to lose its ability to hold urine effectively. Urinary incontinence can be stressful or embarrassing, but PRP shots help regenerate and repair tissues to reduce unpleasant urinary symptoms.

Platelet-rich plasma is rich in growth factors that boost healing properties, which increases your body’s ability to generate new cells. Because PRP is sourced from your own blood, there are little to no side effects associated with O-Shots.

What should I expect during O-Shots?

During O-Shot visits at Carolinas Health and Wellness, your provider takes a tiny sample of blood from a vein in your arm. They spin the sample in a FDA approved centrifuge to isolate PRP from the rest of your blood and numb the treatment area. They then inject PRP into vaginal and nearby tissues. The procedure is fast and minimally invasive. The O-Shot results typically last 18 months or longer depending on your body's metabolism.

Your provider could recommend undergoing a series of O-Shots to achieve highly effective and long-lasting improvements in women’s sexual health.

What Does the Doctor Do?

First the doctor or nurse applies a numbing cream to the vagina and the arm.  Then blood is drawn from the arm in the same was as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. The whole process takes about 10 minutes and can be done there in the room with the patient. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected the clitoris and into the upper vagina into an area most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot. Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, the woman feels little or no pain.

 

The Price for the O-Shot procedure starts at $1,300. Insurance does not cover the cost of the procedure.
