Sexual Health

For many men and women, intimacy and having fun in the bedroom isn’t always fun and cause a strain on a relationship. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, up to 30 percent of men and 40 percent of women experience some type of sexual dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the most widely discussed form of sexual problems, but women also experience issues related to sex, such as vaginal dryness or loss of sensitivity. Both men and women can suffer from low libido and causing a loss of self-esteem. For these and other symptoms, there may be a treatment method available in the form of platelet-rich plasma therapy known as PRP therapy.

Symptoms of Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction can result from any number of physiological or psychological conditions. Trauma, for instance, can greatly reduce your desire for sex as can lower hormone levels due to aging. Regardless of the cause, some people suffer in silence when it comes to sexual dysfunction because it’s not an easy topic to bring up with a doctor – or even your partner. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, then you may have a health condition that could be remedied with proper treatment:

  • Loss of Desire for Sex
  • Inability to Achieve Orgasm
  • Erectile Dysfunction or Premature Ejaculation
  • Loss of Vaginal Sensation (Frigidity)
  • Incontinence or Lower Urinary Tract Issues
  • Vaginal Dryness or Pain during Sex

You may also gain or lose weight, feel depressed or suffer from other symptoms as a result of your reduced sex drive. Hormone imbalance can account for some sexual issues in both men and women, but there may be purely physical reasons affecting your sexual performance. Platelet-rich plasma offers one solution to this common problem.

How PRP Works

Platelet-rich plasma is plasma that has been enriched with platelets. The platelets contain growth factors that signal stem cells to start doing what they should be doing on their own. In turn, your reproductive organs and sex drive get a much-needed boost. Treating certain medical conditions with platelet-rich plasma isn’t a new concept, but recent developments have made it a much more viable option for sexual therapy, particularly for women. 

The treatment for women is called an O-shot®, which stands for orgasm-shot. Women could benefit from decreased pain during sex (known as Dyspareunia), added natural lubrication and increased arousal from clitoris stimulation.

For men, the treatment is called a Priapus-shot® or P-shot, and improvements could include more durable erections, girth, and longer penile length.

PRP therapy works by using your own blood to stimulate natural processes that may have shut down for various reasons. In one method, a local anesthetic gets applied to specifically targeted injection sites. A topical numbing cream which numbs the surface area. Once the PRP is injected, the stem cells go to work. Your body creates new blood vessels and sensory cells to aid in sexual function. It’s a quick procedure with fast results. Many patients see improvement within a week but results can vary from patient to patient. You may experience a heightened arousal with better sensitivity during sex.
