An estimated 43% of women are living with sexual dysfunction, a medical condition that includes low sex drive and difficulty achieving orgasm, among other symptoms. It’s a common problem, but many women find the topic embarrassing to discuss.
Rather than bringing it up to your doctor, do you ignore signs of sexual dysfunction and hope the symptoms disappear? Or are you concerned that it’s selfish to prioritize your sex life? The truth is that your sexual health matters.
Everyone — regardless of age — deserves to have a satisfying sex life and a fulfilling relationship with their partner. When sex is painful or your libido is low, it affects your quality of life. Disinterest in sex can lower your self-esteem and harm your relationship with your spouse or significant other.
At Vibrant Woman Health Center, Patricia Nevils, MD, and our compassionate team believe that sexual health is important for every woman. We’re proud to offer the O-Shot® to women who are struggling with sexual dysfunction.
Take a moment to find out how the O-Shot’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can revitalize vaginal tissue and improve your sex life.
Understanding sexual dysfunction
Changes in sexual function are common throughout life. For women, hormonal changes that come with birth control pills, breastfeeding, and menopause can affect interest in sex and loss of sensation. These changes can be frustrating, impacting your relationship and your self-esteem.
Sexual dysfunction affects everyone differently, but common symptoms include:
- Low sex drive
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal itching or burning
- Vaginal laxity
- Pain with sex
- Urinary incontinence
If you think you might be suffering from sexual dysfunction, make an appointment with Dr. Nevils. She talks with you about your symptoms and sexual history to help you determine if the O-Shot could be a good option for you.
What the O-Shot can do for you
The O-Shot is a PRP treatment that stimulates tissue regeneration. It’s completely customizable, and our team carefully selects the exact locations in and around the vagina to inject PRP.
Dr. Nevils takes a small sample of blood from your arm and separates the growth factors to create your unique PRP solution. She makes several injections in and around your vagina and clitoris to boost cell growth and improve symptoms of sexual dysfunction.
O-Shot treatment requires only local anesthesia. The injections are nearly painless, and there’s no downtime after treatment. In fact, you can enjoy sex the very same day.
As the PRP solution begins to trigger new cell growth, you’ll begin noticing improved sexual health in the days following your procedure. Increased libido, vaginal comfort, and stronger orgasms are possible with the help of the O-Shot.
The benefits of the O-Shot can last up to 18 months for many women. To continue enjoying an improved sex life, it’s possible to get the O-Shot again once effects begin to wear off.
You’re not alone if you’re suffering the symptoms of sexual dysfunction. It’s time to learn more about how the O-Shot could help.
