4 Benefits of the O-Shot

Every woman deserves to have a satisfying sex life, no matter her age. But did you know that up to 50% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction at some point?

Sexual dysfunction is a medical condition that includes symptoms like low libido, pain with sex, or difficulty achieving orgasm. It’s a common problem, but it can be embarrassing to bring up with your doctor.

Stuart Shoengold, MD, and our team at Center for Female and Male Sexual Medicine are removing the stigma around discussing your sexual health. We specialize in helping women of all ages overcome female sexual dysfunction with cutting-edge treatments like the O-Shot®.

The O-Shot is a unique therapy that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to revitalize soft tissues in your genital area. Benefits of the O-Shot range from increased sexual sensation to better bladder control, but results vary for each woman. Depending on your unique health history, the O-Shot could provide any of the following benefits.

1. Improve your ability to orgasm

The O-Shot is also called the orgasm shot, and for good reason. It was developed specifically to help women have better, more frequent orgasms.

There are lots of reasons that women struggle to achieve sexual satisfaction, whether it’s a complication of pregnancy and childbirth or it’s related to low hormone levels and menopause. Whatever the cause, not being able to orgasm is a frustrating problem that can affect your libido. 

The PRP in O-Shot therapy increases blood flow and stimulates tissue regeneration within your vaginal area. As a result, you could experience increased sensation and find that achieving orgasm is easier.

2. Make sex more comfortable

As you get older, you’re more likely to experience symptoms like vaginal dryness, discomfort, and painful intercourse. Pain with sex may make it more difficult to achieve orgasm and can contribute to disinterest in sex.

Tissue regeneration stimulated by the O-Shot can increase natural vaginal moisture and reduce symptoms of painful intercourse. Getting the O-Shot could relieve dryness, revitalize tissue to improve vaginal laxity, and minimize discomfort during sex.

3. Boost your libido

Your libido, also know as sex drive, is your interest in engaging in sexual activities. It’s a complex combination of mental and hormonal elements, and it’s normal for sex drive to fluctuate as you move through life.

It’s common to experience a steep drop in libido as you get older. Hormonal changes in menopause and beyond can make you less interested in sex, which may put strain on your self-esteem or your relationship with your significant other.

Along with improving symptoms like discomfort with sex and inability to orgasm, the O-Shot could boost your libido. It increases blood flow, and many women find that it makes sex more enjoyable.

4. Minimize urinary incontinence symptoms

The O-Shot offers a host of benefits that could make sex more comfortable and more enjoyable, but the benefits reach beyond your sex life. This therapy can also improve symptoms of urinary incontinence.

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine, and it’s a medical condition that increasing numbers of women face. It can be embarrassing, but O-Shot therapy may restore some of that bladder control so you experience leaks less often.
