What is Vaginal Atrophy and How Does the O-Shot® Treat It?
Lack of sexual desire and painful sex are common symptoms women have with vaginal atrophy. In fact, most people report at least one indication of poor sexual function as they get older. It can be especially bad for older women entering menopause.
If you have trouble with natural lubrication or are no longer interested in sex because of discomfort, turn to medical aesthetics specialist Dr. Gloria Tumbaga at Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa. Our facility is proud to offer the popular and effective O-Shot in Temecula, CA.
The O-Shot is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to encourage new cell growth. Schedule an assessment for vaginal atrophy by calling us or learn more about the O-Shot below.
What is vaginal atrophy?
It’s normal for a woman’s body to undergo many changes during their lifetime. Hormone fluctuations can cause a condition known as vaginal atrophy. Also known as atrophic vaginitis, atrophy makes your vaginal tissue thin, dry, and inflamed, which is what leads to painful or uncomfortable sexual intercourse. Others suffer from embarrassing conditions, like urinary stress incontinence.
How does the O-Shot help?
The O-Shot is specifically designed for women in Temecula, CA with vaginal atrophy. Ideal candidates are women who want to enhance their sexual function and urinary health. The good news is that the PRP used in the O-Shot can be administered during a simple in-office appointment. When surgical methods are time-consuming and require long recovery times, the O-Shot delivers exceptional vaginal rejuvenation results in no time at all.
What about urinary incontinence?
Vaginal atrophy does not just influence your sex life. Urinary incontinence occurs when participating in activities that place pressure on the bladder, including running, jumping, and even sneezing. When the vaginal tissues are atrophied, you may have problems with frequent urinary tract infections and stress incontinence. The O-Shot provides new tissue support for the bladder and urethra, giving you more control.
How does the O-Shot work?
The O-Shot begins with a blood draw at Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa. One of our specialists places the drawn blood into a special centrifuge while you wait. Once the platelet-rich plasma is finished, it is placed in a syringe to administer on the G-spot, labia, and clitoris. We make sure patients feel comfortable with numbing injections beforehand. Because little downtime is associated with the O-Shot, you can return to normal activities and sexual intercourse within a few days.
Your vaginal rejuvenation results
The PRP begins to work almost immediately after your O-Shot appointment. Many patients experience noticeable improvements in the vaginal and clitoral tissues within several weeks. Patients at our facility who have the O-Shot report more natural lubrication, more intense orgasms, less pain during intercourse, and a reduction in urinary incontinence. Results from the O-Shot are known to last 1 – 2 years before requiring a follow-up procedure.
