How Soon Can I Have Sex After The O-Shot®?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are no new discovery, but the O-Shot® is the first procedure to apply PRP injection technology to female genitalia, and has been wildly successful at that.
In standard PRP injections, which are typically applied to injured joints and ligaments, recovery does take a few days to a few weeks because the tissue in these procedures needs time to heal.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The O-Shot® procedure is fast and convenient, taking just 30 minutes in your doctor’s office. Blood is drawn from the patient, then platelet-rich plasma is separated from the blood in a centrifuge and injected back into the patient, between the vagina and the bladder. Results for some patients are like ‘fireworks.’
How Long Is the Recovery Period?
One of the greatest things about the O-Shot® procedure is the fast recovery time. Like standard PRP injections for joints where tissue needs time to regrow, the O-Shot® does need time to regrow tissue around the vagina, should it also be damaged. Stem cells injected in the vaginal area need time to grow new tissue. However, since injections are minimally invasive, recovery times are far below that of invasive surgeries.
Will I Notice Results Immediately?
While some patients go home the same day noticing an increased sex drive and ability to orgasm, as well as a decrease in urinary incontinence, optimal results may take up to three months. Most women, however, notice remarkable improvement within two to three weeks. Unlike surgeries, the treated area can be used immediately, meaning patients can have sex the same day!
Don’t Wait to Start Living a Better Life
Did you know that 30 to 40 percent of women have sexual dysfunction or urinary incontinence? Although these women would benefit from an O-Shot®, only three in 20 seek help from a doctor.
