Has your interest in sex dwindled or are the side effects of menopause or andropause making sex less pleasurable? The physicians at The Doc Spa in Albuquerque and Edgewood, New Mexico, offer O-shot® and P-shot® treatments to restore the libidos and sexuality for both female and male patients. If you want to learn more about these injections, which use platelet rich plasma (PRP) to restore sexual vitality, call to make an appointment today.
The O-shot is a PRP injection for women that rejuvenates the tissue around your upper vagina and clitoris. This treatment involves a small sample of your own blood, which your doctor places in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and create the PRP serum. Your physician then makes injections into your upper vaginal area.
The shots not only deliver growth factors that stimulate cell growth, but also create micro-injuries that trigger your body’s natural healing response, flooding the area with the oxygen and nutrients essential to cell repair and growth. The injections increase blood flow and stimulate the development of new blood vessels, which improves circulation permanently.
Erectile dysfunction is often the result of decreased circulation in the penis. The P-shot is an innovative PRP injection that harnesses your body’s own growth factors and natural healing ability to improve your blood flow and erections.
When you have a P-shot, your doctor draws a small amount of your blood, which they use to create the PRP serum. Your doctor then numbs your penis and injects the serum into your body. The injections provide growth factors that stimulate blood flow and encourage new blood vessel growth, thereby providing a long-term increase in circulation and improvement in your erections.
The hormonal loss of menopause and andropause is the main reason to have an O-shot or P-shot. During menopause, the drop in estrogen causes vaginal atrophy that can make sex less pleasurable or even painful. Men may find that their testosterone levels decrease and that their circulation becomes weaker, leading to erectile dysfunction.
The O-shot is also an effective treatment for stress incontinence in women. Vaginal atrophy causes your pelvic floor to weaken, which reduces the support available for your bladder and urethra. The O-shot rejuvenates the tissue of your pelvic floor and restores sufficient support to your urinary tract to prevent leakage.
If you’re interested in improving your sex life or are looking for a minimally invasive treatment for stress incontinence, call The Doc Spa to schedule a consultation and learn if the O-shot or P-shot is the right treatment for your symptoms.
