Menopause and perimenopause (the years leading up to it) can have a profound effect on a woman’s sex drive. During this time, estrogen in a woman’s system plummets, which can lower desire and make the vaginal canal dryer and less elastic, which can make intercourse somewhat painful. According to John Hopkins Medicine, more than a third of women in perimenopause or who are post-menopausal report sexual difficulties, including a lack of sex drive and trouble reaching climax.
But there is a simple, effective, virtually painless way to reverse this trend and enjoy a fulfilling sex life well into your later years. It’s called the PRP O-Shot. The PRP O-shot (O stands for orgasm) is a cosmetic procedure where platelet rich plasma, which is centrifuged and separated from your own blood, is injected around the clitoris and within the vaginal walls to promote
blood flow and cell growth. This increases sensitivity, sexual drive, and enhanced sexual sensation.
What exactly is rich platelet plasma?
Platelet rich plasma is the portion of your blood that contains all the growth factors that help us heal ourselves. When we are small children and we scraped our knee, a scab is formed and when the scab falls off, there is nice new pink skin that grew in its place. That healthy new skin was stimulated to form via the platelet rich plasma in your blood. By isolating and concentrating your PRP, we can use it wherever it’s needed to aid in healing, or in the case of the PRP O-shot, in the restoration of blood vessels and nerves.
But PRP O-shots aren’t just for more mature women.
Many women experience changes in sexual function following pregnancy and the birth of their babies. Likewise, some women experiencing mild urinary incontinence can see needed relief and fewer leaks after PRP O-shot injections. PRP has been used extensively to treat sports injuries, aid in recovery from surgery, and even treat medical conditions like hair loss.
While scientists don’t yet fully understand how it works, it appears that the platelets may have some kind of healing and restorative properties when injected into an injured part of the body by releasing up to 35 different healing substances Trusted Source or growth factors.
Many doctors use PRP to treat muscular wounds and broken bones and claim it greatly speeds healing time.
What does a PRP O-shot entail?
At Red Bamboo Medi Spa, we’ve been providing PRP O-shots since 2010. In fact, we use rich platelet plasma to rejuvenate skin, soften scars, soothe inflamed tendons, strengthen rotator cuffs, improve the sensitivity of nipples after breast enhancement, and repair defects from over-zealous liposuction. We are one of the few practices certified by the American Cosmetic Medicine Association to perform the PRP O-shot.
The first step of the PRP O-Shot treatment involves drawing a sample of your blood and isolating PRP via centrifuge, a process that takes roughly 10 minutes to complete. While the blood is being processed, an anesthetic will be applied to the injection site. Once the PRP has been isolated and the treatment area is sufficiently numbed, the PRP is injected into the clitoris and upper vagina through a very fine, thin needle.
The O-shot itself takes only seconds, and the whole procedure, from the time you walk in until the time you walk is out only 20 minutes. Better yet, you can resume normal activity, including sex, immediately with no downtime.
