Designed to increase a woman’s ability to experience orgasms and overall physical sexual pleasure, the O-Shot is an incredibly effective treatment for millions of women experiencing difficulties in the bedroom. And while we’ve covered a bit of information about the O-Shot before, we thought we might take the opportunity to address several additional common questions that many of our patients have regarding this revolutionary procedure.
Because the O-Shot is associated with growth factors and because of the nature of treatment (which involve injecting the patient’s own natural growth factors back into the treated site of injection), the O-Shot is perfectly safe. Your body will react naturally to an injection made from your own blood.
The entire procedure takes under an hour from start to finish and uses advanced technology to improve sensation in the vagina and surrounding areas. Appointments consist of patient preparation and processing the patient’s blood within a centrifuge in order to extract the growth factors, which can then be injected into the desired area.
While the O-Shot and other growth factor injections are not FDA-approved, they are well-known and well-documented techniques used in a variety of fields for their remarkable effectiveness. Growth factor injections are neither approved nor forbidden by the FDA, as they consist of the patient’s own blood rather than a drug. However, the FDA has approved growth factor harvesting kits, which are used in the O-Shot procedure.
A large number of women have seen noticeable improvement if not eradication of urinary incontinence related to urge or stress. In conjunction with pelvic floor exercises, the O-Shot can cause significant improvement in regards to urinary incontinence.
