Option for Women’s Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction in women is common, but the subject gets a lot less attention than men’s sexual dysfunction. There’s hope for a better sex life with the O-Shot, or Orgasm-Shot. Dr. Helliwell is a certified provider of the treatment that can remain effective for up to three years.

Causes of sexual dysfunction

Women talk with us about a variety of conditions that affect relationships due to an unsatisfying sex life:

  • Painful sex
  • Arousal issues
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Decreased desire

Sex can become so frustrating, that women start to avoid sex altogether. However, a healthy sex life is an important part of loving relationships. And a less-than-satisfying sex life creates ongoing problems. Taking steps to remedy sexual dysfunction makes life and relationships more enjoyable.

How the O-Shot works

We take a draw of the patient’s own blood (from the arm), and process the blood to create Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The PRP is injected into the vagina or clitoris, using a topical anesthetic to prevent pain from the shot. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes in our office. PRP stimulates stem cells to grow healthier and better-functioning tissue, with results effective in about a week or even less.

Results of the O-Shot

The non-surgical process is FDA-approved. Women say that the results improve sexual intensity, rejuvenating and enhancing the sexual response. Other patient experiences include:

  • Greater arousal from stimulation
  • Tighter vaginal opening
  • Increased sexual desire
  • More frequent orgasm
  • Decreased pain
  • Decreased urinary incontinence

How to Get Help for Sexual Dysfunction

Women are often hesitant to talk about sexual dysfunction with their doctor. We want to encourage you to talk with us, because we understand the condition and may be able to help you. It’s very important to only have this procedure from a doctor who is certified in the technique, and Dr. Helliwell is an official provider of the O-Shot.
