Urinary incontinence is a common problem, especially in older women. In fact, more than 4 in 10 women 65 and older struggle with bladder control issues. The high rates of incontinence among women are due to unique health events — like pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause — that impact our pelvic floor muscles and vaginal health. But, even though women are twice as likely as men to have urinary incontinence issues, that doesn’t mean we have to live with them.
At Rénove Medical Spa in Kingwood, Texas, Dr. Afia Naqvi and our experienced team understand how vaginal changes affect your intimate health, self-confidence, and quality of life. That’s why we offer Women’s Health & Female Intimate Health services and solutions. These treatments focus on the most innovative methods available, including the revolutionary O-Shot®.
Restoring vaginal health with the O-Shot
The O-Shot has several names, including the Orgasm Shot® and “Pink Viagra.” But, don’t let those names fool you. This powerful female rejuvenation treatment can also address bladder problems and postpartum fecal incontinence. The O-Shot works by leveraging the regenerative nature of platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP, to restore your vaginal health.
PRP is a powerful form of regenerative medicine that harnesses the naturally occurring substances in your blood that heal damage or deterioration in your body. By drawing your blood and concentrating these healing agents in a machine called a centrifuge, we can make them 5-10 times stronger.
When injected into specific areas of your body, these high concentrations of PRP can supercharge the healing process, restoring health and vitality to your tissue.
How the O-Shot works
To treat issues like urinary incontinence with PRP, we inject your O-Shot directly into the vaginal tissue surrounding your clitoris and G-spot (inside your upper vagina). This triggers the healing process in these areas, resulting in stronger, healthier, and more responsive tissue.
In addition to treating urinary incontinence, the O-Shot can address several vaginal issues, including:
- Loss of libido
- Difficulty orgasming
- Vaginal dryness and laxity, or looseness
- Painful sexual intercourse
The O-Shot can also improve the quality and frequency of your orgasms.
What to expect from the O-Shot
Treating urinary incontinence and other intimate health issues with the O-Shot is simple and relatively painless. To prepare your PRP sample, we draw your blood and concentrate the healing factors by spinning it in a centrifuge machine. Before we administer your O-Shots, we numb the injection sites inside and outside your vagina so that you remain comfortable throughout the entire treatment.
After your appointment, you can usually resume normal activity. There are few side effects from PRP injections, but it’s common to have some minor vaginal discomfort or bleeding as the healing process gets underway. This response fades quickly as new cells develop in the area.
Because your O-Shot is a regenerative treatment that works by repairing damaged tissue, it can take a few weeks to see any changes. In most cases, you’ll notice the greatest benefits within 2-3 months. Depending on your urinary issues and vaginal health, we might suggest a series of 2-3 O-Shots every 6-12 weeks to provide the best results.
