Recent developments in medical science have brought bright new techniques and procedures to many areas of health and well-being. We want to talk about one such procedure that is becoming more popular, and that can have a considerable impact on the patient’s life. This is the o-shot Lubbock women are choosing to undergo.
What is the O-shot, why do women want it, and what are the effects of it? We will answer all these questions – and more – in the article that follows. Let’s begin by explaining what the O-shot is, and why it is important.
What is the O-Shot?
The O-shot – short for ‘Orgasm shot’ – is a minimally invasive medical procedure that is designed to restore sexual health where a woman has noticed a loss of desire or is undergoing the menopause. It is a relatively new procedure that effectively boosts sexual feeling and desire and improves performance.
Poor sex drive – and a lack of interest – can be damaging to a relationship. It can also lead to lack of confidence, to depression, and basically cause one’s life to be less enjoyable. There is a male equivalent called the ‘P-shot’ which is used for rejuvenating sexual health and performance in men.
Both procedures use a clever method known as PRP to achieve their aims. Next, we will look at what PRP is and how it works.
What is PRP?
PRP is the abbreviation for ‘Platelet-rich Plasma.’ It is all about the components that make up your blood. PRP involves drawing a blood sample, a simple procedure you have probably undergone many times. The blood is then put in a centrifuge and spun at a certain speed for a set time.
This has the effect of separating the blood cells from the platelets. Platelets are the part of the blood that encourage cell growth and regulate blood flow. What happens next is your vaginal area will be numbed with an anaesthetic cream. The platelet-rich plasma – PRP – which has been extracted and harvested from your blood is then injected into the vaginal area.
What is the purpose? Platelets encourage cell growth, and now you have more platelets in the blood in that area than normal. The result is that cell growth is exaggerated, and the ultimate result is that the vagina is rejuvenated, tightened, and the healthy blood flow restored.
Patients report better sexual enjoyment as well as restored sex drive, plus greater feeling when enjoying sex. Good sex is very much intrinsic to a good relationship as it something of a bonding experience, hence the O-shot – and the male P-shot equivalent – can extend the sex life of a couple beyond menopause when it is naturally reduced.
Let’s move on now and look at who is an ideal candidate for the O-shot, and what to expect should you decide to undertake the procedure.
Am I A Candidate for the O-Shot?
The ideal candidate for the O-shot will be a woman experiencing any or some of the following:
- Loss of libido and no interest in sex
- Inability to achieve orgasm
- Lack of arousal
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
We should add women undergoing menopause to that list. Be aware that if you are experiencing any of the above you should make an appointment with a doctor right away. This is because many of the symptoms listed can also be indicative of other conditions, some of which may be dangerous to one’s health, so you need a correct diagnosis. Now we want to look at the procedure itself, and what you should expect.
What Should I Expect During the Procedure?
We need to talk about what happens before the procedure first. You will be invited to a consultation at the Lubbock clinic where the procedure will be performed. This will involve a detailed chat about your health, any past procedures you have undertaken, your lifestyle and your family history. Be prepared for some personal questions about your sex life, too, as this will be important to the consultant.
Once they have all the information you will be informed if you are suitable for the O-shot procedure. Unless there is some serious underlying health problem it is unlikely you will be rejected. Next, an appointment will be made for you to attend to have the O-shot.
The medical professional performing the O-shot will be a fully trained and qualified individual who will make you as comfortable as possible. The first step is to draw a sample of your blood and then perform the separation as described. Numbing cream will be applied to the vagina and the PRP injected into the areas to be treated.
Most patients report feeling pressure as this takes place, but nothing more. As the O-shot is a non-invasive procedure you will perhaps feel soreness in the area where the injections have been made for a day or so, and the procedure can be performed in around one hour in its entirety.
Effects can be immediate although will improve as the growth elements come to life in a couple of weeks, and the effects usually last around 12 months after which you can undergo treatment again. There is no downtime involved in the O-shot procedure.
Is the O-Shot Safe?
The major benefit of using PRP is that the patient’s blood is the only component. Therefore, the risk of contamination is minimised, and the only side-effects are possible soreness as mentioned above. There is no need for anaesthetic bar the numbing cream, hence another common risk factor is eliminated. It is a perfectly safe and tested routine that has been performed many millions of times entirely successfully, and you can even go back to work the same day should you wish.
If you are experiencing poor sex drive and performance, or any of the symptoms we have talked about here, we recommend you see a doctor for diagnosis, and then arrange for a full consultation with the O-shot experts at your local clinic in Lubbock.
