What is the O-Shot?

As you age, your body’s ability to regenerate cells slows and leads to signs of aging like vaginal atrophy and dryness. These conditions can interfere with your libido, as well as your ability to enjoy sexual intercourse.

The O-Shot is an innovative procedure that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate your body’s natural healing ability to boost cell growth and repair in your vagina. The treatment may also trigger the growth of new capillaries, which deliver oxygen and other nutrients to your vaginal tissue.

With vaginal restoration, sex becomes more comfortable and pleasurable, and your libido and ability to reach orgasm increases. Many patients have told Dr. Fandel that the treatment enables them to have the best sex of their lives, or they see a reduction in their incontinence symptoms.

What conditions improve with the O-Shot?

Dr. Fandel uses the O-Shot to address several common women’s health issues, including:

  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Orgasmic disorders
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Lichen sclerosis (thinning of genital skin)

The O-Shot may also reduce urinary stress incontinence. The treatment may replenish your vaginal tissue and pelvic floor, which can enhance the support available to your bladder.

What should I expect from the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is a PRP treatment, so Dr. Fandel begins by drawing a blood sample. She separates your blood using the Harvest SmartPrep® Multicellular Processing System or the APEX Biologix’s PRP Concentration System and creates your personal PRP serum.

When your PRP serum is ready, she injects it into specific locations in your vagina. The O-Shot isn’t painful, and the whole treatment takes approximately an hour. Dr. Fandel recommends up to four treatments for optimal results. You should wait 9-12 weeks between O-Shot treatments.

While the O-Shot accelerates your body’s ability to create new cells, you still need some time for your vaginal tissue to improve. Most patients notice their results in 6-9 weeks. You might also benefit from having a touch-up treatment every two years to maintain your results.

You don’t need to take any time off to recover after having the O-Shot. You can get right back to your regular activities, including intercourse.

If you’re struggling with vaginal dryness, incontinence, or sexual dysfunction, call Madison Fandel, ND, or make an appointment online today to explore the O-Shot.
