As an in-office procedure that takes about 30 minutes, your O-Shot® procedure begins with the drawing of a blood sample, that is then filtered and put through a centrifuge to separate and isolate its platelet-rich plasma (PRP). During the quick centrifuge process, Dr. B will apply a numbing gel to the vaginal area. Once your PRP has been processed, it will be directly injected directly under the clitoris and also between the top of the vagina and urethra.
Most patients report no discomfort or pain during the procedure and experience no side effects. You may notice minor spotting immediately after the treatment, but this typically subsides within an hour or two. Patients are allowed to immediately resume all normal daily activities, and, if desired, can even engage in sexual activity on the same day.
The PRP’s impact on cell and tissue growth takes time, but most patients typically start noticing some signs of improvements to vaginal and sexual health within the first three weeks of treatment. Full results and benefits should be totally apparent about three months after the treatment, by which point the natural PRP tissue re-growth process should be complete. On average, the benefits accrued from O-Shot® typically last for about 12 to 18 months.
