Low Testosterone in Men

Testosterone is a hormone found in men and women although men have much higher levels of testosterone than women. Production of testosterone increases during puberty but starts to decrease after 30 years of age. The level of testosterone in men begins to decline at about 1 percent each year, which is a natural result of aging. Testosterone in women decrease by half from the age of 21- 40 years old.

Testosterone helps maintain several important bodily functions in men, including:

  • Sex drive
  • Erectile function
  • muscle mass/strength
  • bone density
  • red blood cell production

P-Shot for Men 

The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot) uses Platelet rich plasma (PRP) and is an office procedure developed to deliver long-term improvements in sexual performance to men, especially those who suffer from erectile dysfunction. This is often used alone or be used alongside Corewave Therapy™, Stem cells or a number of other medications for erectile dysfunction.

The P-Shot is a modern medical procedure that can effectively treat erectile dysfunction that cannot be achieved with pills, creams, or other male enhancement procedures. It is a non-surgical, pain-free treatment for ED.

O Shot for Women 

The O Shot is an all-natural, pain-free non-surgical procedure that can rejuvenate vaginal and clitoral function, which could improve sensitivity and enhance a women’s sex life and orgasms.

The O Shot also helps with urinary incontinence. Many women lose urine while coughing, laughing, sneezing, the O Shot is a procedure that does not involve invasive surgery and patients may be able to avoid a urinary sling, allowing for dryness and vaginal comfort.

 Ideal candidates for the O shot procedure are women seeking:

  • Stronger Orgasms
  • Increased Sexual Desire
  • Increased Natural Lubrication
  • Decreased Urinary Incontinence
  • More Vaginal or clitoral sensation

The O Shot® is an in-office procedure that uses a special method that isolates platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood. The PRP is placed back into the clitoris and upper vagina.

 Low Sexual Desire for Women

According to the Mayo Clinic, women's sexual desires naturally vary throughout the years. Female sexual arousal disorders usually overlap with the end of a relationship or with major life changes, such as pregnancy, or an illness. Menopause is another very common reason that women have low libido. Some medications used for mood disorders can also cause low sex drive in women.

You may have a condition called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) if your lack of interest in sex continues or returns and causes personal distress. If you're concerned with your low sex drive, there are lifestyle changes, sexual techniques and some medications that can get you in the mood more often.

Signs of low libido

  • Having no interest in any type of sexual activity, including masturbation
  • Never or only seldom having sexual fantasies or thoughts
  • Being concerned by your lack of sexual activity or fantasies

Female Sexual Dysfunction Symptoms

Let’s talk menopause. Most of us know that it is when menstruation stops for a year, but with that comes major hormonal changes. Unfortunately, these changes lead to hot flashes, low desire, vaginal dryness and painful intercourse.

The good news is that there are ways to solve this problem by using bio-identical hormones in the form of the Mona Lisa touch laser and medication. Incredibly, these solutions increase desire and decrease side effects in order to make menopause as comfortable an experience as possible.
