PRP for Sexual Health
Lately, PRP has become popular for sexual wellness. There are not many options in this field for women, which makes PRP quite unique. Specifically, after numbing (using a topical cream) is attained, platelet-rich plasma can be injected into the sexual organs (clitoris, vagina and labia majora) to rejuvenate the female orgasmic system, hence the name the O-Shot®. Growth factors are released and improve the function of these tissues almost immediately. The benefits include: greater arousal from clitoral stimulation; younger, smoother vulvar skin; a tighter vaginal opening; stronger more frequent orgasms; increased libido and lubrication; less pain with intercourse, and even decreased urinary incontinence. Here’s what one of our patients had to say about this underutilized treatment:“Hello Dr T, I want to say that my experience after the o shot it is much more significant than “better”. My nights are better because I rarely wake up to pee in the middle of the night. I wake up 7 or 8 hours later needing to pee in the morning like I used to. I can do jumping jacks and that gnarly 4 minute Tabata routine without leaking!
And the orgasm was simply mind blowing…I felt like a goddess coming into my power. Lightning bolts were flying! It was a whole body/whole mind experience that blew me away. Everything worked, every technique, every time. And, I just am so proud of my body for being a rock star and proud of him for rolling with it!”
Does it hurt?
We apply a topical numbing cream for 20-60 minutes prior to the procedure. Then we do an injection of lidocaine to numb the area even more. Patients feel it is a very tolerable procedure.
How long does an appointment take?
Depending on if you are combining this treatment with diVa®, our laser for vaginal therapy, an appointment requires less than 90 minutes.
Is there any recovery time?
There may be swelling and tenderness, but these side effects usually resolve within a week.
When are the effects noticeable?
Improvements in sexual function can take 3-4 months to realize.
How long will my results last?
The results vary, but usually, patients repeat the procedure every 1-2 years.
How many treatments are needed?
We recommend 1 treatment to start and see how your response is. Your provider may recommend more depending on a multitude of patient-specific factors.
