Whether you’ve always loved sex or have never quite known what the fuss is about, new developments in regenerative medicine help you achieve faster and more intense orgasms if you’re a woman and can give you stronger, longer-lasting erections if you’re a man.
The O-Shot® and the P-Shot® harness the benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help your body create stronger, healthier urogenital tissues that rev up your sex life, make orgasming easier and alleviate a range of age-related urogenital symptoms.
Sharon Smith, MD, and Andrea Alexander, MD, expert OB/GYNs at OBGYN Care of Houston understand how important a healthy sex life is for our patients. That’s why we offer both the O-Shot and the P-Shot in the comfort and safety of our Houston, Texas, office. And yes, the “O” stands for orgasm, while “P” stands for Priapus, the Roman god of fertility (who happened to be spectacularly endowed).
Orgasms are more than just the culmination of a sex act. When you have an orgasm, your blood flow increases to your urogenital tissues, your muscles contract, and your body is flooded with beneficial, feel-good hormones, such as:
Orgasms stimulate your brain in the same ways that other pleasurable activities do, including listening to music, enjoying a meal, or even consuming alcohol or drugs. The combination of increased blood flow, muscular contractions, and hormone release during orgasm actually counts as exercise. Like exercise, orgasms produce health benefits, such as:
Regular orgasms also increase your libido and sexual response, making it more likely that you’ll have another orgasm. And, of course, orgasms during sex with an intimate partner can help you feel more bonded to that person and strengthen your relationship.
Despite all of the benefits of orgasms to both women and men, somewhere between 10-40% of women have difficulty achieving orgasm. As women age and go through the hormonal changes of perimenopause and menopause, they may also find that their vaginas are drier, sex doesn’t feel as good or hurts, and they can’t climax as readily.
Men also undergo hormonal shifts as they age, leading to erectile dysfunction (ED) and decreased libido. About 30 million men in the United States are affected by ED.
At OBGYN Care of Houston, we administer the O-Shot and the P-Shot directly into your sexual organs. The O-Shot is injected into the upper wall of the vagina, near the entrance, in a location sometimes called the G spot. The P-Shot is injected into the shaft of the penis.
Both the O-Shot and P-Shot are PRP serums that are made from your own blood. We withdraw a small amount of blood from your arm, and then spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the healing cell fragments known as platelets. After we mix the platelets with a small amount of the liquid portion of your blood (aka the plasma), we inject it.
The PRP stimulates a healing response that makes your body rebuild vaginal and penile tissues with new collagen and elastin. The PRP shots also trigger the production of new blood vessels that help your urogenital tissues become more sensitive and responsive.
Both women and men feel the difference almost immediately after their 20-minute O-Shot or P-Shot treatment. Benefits for women include stronger sexual response, better orgasms, and less to no urinary incontinence. Benefits for men include stronger, better erections and increased girth.
Because the O-Shot and P-Shot work with your body’s natural healing and rejuvenating processes, the benefits continue to accumulate over the next several months. You should experience your full results after two to three months.
