The O-Shot is a noninvasive and mostly painless treatment for urinary incontinence as well as other women’s health conditions such as vaginal dryness and post-natal rehabilitation.
If you’ve heard of the vampire facial – made famous by Kim Kardashian, you probably know that the viral aesthetic treatment uses platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) as an attempt to rejuvenate the skin.
Similarly, the O-Shot – short for “Orgasm Shot” – is a PRP treatment that is aimed at rejuvenating the sensations in both the clitoris and G-Spot by extracting PRP from a woman’s own blood and injecting it directly into the vulva.
These findings serve as a proof of concept for the ability of residual quiescent follicles of damaged ovaries to produce competent oocytes in an adequate ovarian environment but should not be restricted to the limited population of young cancer patients. In fact, a small pool of dormant primordial follicles remains even in the non-functional ovaries of menopausal women and patients diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency due to several causes.
Well over ten years ago, medical scientists began to realize that a specific “fraction” of human blood contained special growth factors and healing-inducing properties. This portion of blood, known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), is devoid of red blood cells but contains blood serum. It is what’s responsible for blood clotting and tissue healing. In everyday life, we know PRP as that yellow goo around a scab from whence healing generates. In addition to speeding healing, platelet rich plasma also contains a significant array of growth factors that make it an enhancer of function of the tissue areas that it comes into contact with.
