Restoring Women’s Sexual Vitality
At no point should a woman accept a poor sex life as simply an inevitable consequence of aging. Studies show that half of women will suffer some type of sexual dysfunction during their life. If you’re concerned about any aspect of yours — pain due to vaginal dryness, decrease sensation or orgasms or other problems — the O-Shot® administered by Dr. Gittens can help.
At Centers for Sexual Medicine and Wellness in Philadelphia and New York, we are proud to provide the latest therapies in regenerative medicine using platelet rich plasma and cellular therapies.
What Is the O-Shot®?
The O-Shot® is the name given to the non-surgical procedure in which a woman uses her own platelet rich plasma to stimulate her body’s stem cells and growth factor in the clitoris and vaginal tissue.
What Results Will I See From The O-Shot®?
Many women report that benefits from the O-Shot® begin very quickly, with improved sexual stimulation and better orgasms sometimes noticeable — in many cases dramatically — within days or, 4-6 weeks of treatment.
Will the O-Shot® help with Incontinence?
By using the O-Shot® and Dr. Gittens’s program for pelvic health, patients with mild to moderate stress and urinary incontinence have significant improvement. Many women have been able to stop their medication or avoid surgery entirely.
What is platelet rich plasma?
Blood is composed of many components: red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors which stimulate healing by recruiting stem cells and other healing agents to a particular area of the body. When platelets are concentrated in this manner it’s referred to as platelet rich plasma or PRP.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has many uses in medicine. It is commonly used in orthopedics for the regeneration and rapid healing of joints and soft tissues. It also has uses in ophthalmology, facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.
In the realm of sexual wellness for women, PRP is used to rejuvenate and revitalize the clitoral and vaginal tissues helping with orgasm and incontinence.
