The O-Shot and Stress Urinary Incontinence
The O-Shot™, is known to enhance women’s sexual pleasure and their ability to have better, more powerful orgasms. Another exciting benefit has now been reported: over 90 percent of the women who received the O-Shot and who previously suffered from stress incontinence reported that they completely stopped leaking urine after one O-Shot™.
About 40 percent of women in the US suffer from stress urinary incontinence problems. The O-Shot is a minimally invasive, no-downtime procedure that has been proven to stop embarrassing urine leakage without surgery, electrical stimulation, Kegel exercises or medications.
How the O-Shot™ Works
As with all PRP procedures, the O-Shot™ begins with a couple of vials of blood being drawn. The plasma that contains the PRP is then separated from the red and white blood cells by a centrifuge. The platelets, which contain highly active glycoproteins known as growth factors are then injected with an extremely thin needle (27 gauge) into the anesthetized space between the roof of the vagina and the urethra.
The Growth Factors within the PRP stimulate the local “uni-potent” stem cells (stem cells that only produce new cells in the adjacent tissue), which in turn initiates the production of new tissue in and around the injection locations.
As with wound healing, the rejuvenation of the roof of the vagina and the clitoris involves numerous tissue types (blood vessels, nerves, smooth muscle fibers, lymph vessels, connective tissues, endothelium, etc.). So when the vagina and the clitoris receive a concentrated wave of bioactive Growth Factors from a PRP injection, they immediately begin the process of generating new tissue.
It is this new tissue in and around the clitoris that stimulates a “more amorous” sexual response, while the natural build up of tissue in the roof of the vagina virtually eliminates stress incontinence.
