Why Does Your Big O Have Less “Ohhh”

 Why Does Your Big O Have Less “Ohhh”

If your intimate experiences aren’t as pleasurable as they used to be, now may be the right time to consider the Orgasm Shot (O-Shot®). This treatment uses substances from your blood to improve sexual arousal and enhance sensations so you can experience more pleasurable orgasms.

At the Bella Rose Medispa, one of the services offered at Salem Women’s Clinic, Inc., board-certified OB/GYN Elizebeth Harmon, MD, MBA, FACOG, provides O-Shot therapy for women who are otherwise healthy but want to boost their sexual wellness.

What to know about the O-Shot

The O-Shot is a minimally invasive injectable procedure that uses growth factors from your blood to rejuvenate the health of vaginal tissues.

Dr. Harmon takes a sample of your blood and prepares it in a centrifuge, a fast-spinning device that separates blood platelets from other materials. The remaining platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors that support tissue healing and health.

Injections of PRP into your vaginal tissues enhance blood flow to the area and stimulate your body to produce new, healthy cells. As new cells grow, you notice an improvement in your natural lubrication, increased sexual sensitivity, and better-quality orgasms.

When to consider O-Shot therapy

The growth factors found in PRP can have therapeutic benefits for women who experience a decline in sexual sensations resulting from vaginal atrophy. Atrophy describes the shrinking of vaginal tissue that is common with aging. This condition can occur due to a decrease in estrogen production as you age.

Estrogen loss can also cause vaginal irritation, itching, decreased sex drive, and pain with sex. All of these issues can affect your sexual wellness and satisfaction. For some women, age-related vaginal changes can also lower their self-confidence.

We offer the O-Shot to enhance the quality of your orgasms. Dr. Harmon can also recommend the injectable therapy to address other issues that result from weak and shrinking vaginal tissues, including:

You might also be a candidate for O-Shot therapy if you experience chronic vaginal pain after childbirth.

What to expect during your O-Shot treatment

O-Shot therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that we complete during an in-office visit. Dr. Harmon uses a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable and pain-free.

To get the PRP we need for your treatment, Dr. Harmon takes a sample of your blood and prepares it in the centrifuge. She then injects the PRP into your vaginal tissues.

You won’t see immediate results of your treatment because it takes time for new cells to grow in the treatment area. However, many women start noticing results in 1-2 weeks of treatment and experience the full benefit of the O-Shot within a month.

Typically, treatment results can last 12-18 months before you may need additional PRP injections. Dr. Harmon continues to monitor your progress with O-Shot therapy and can recommend when to schedule maintenance injections.
