Learn How the P-Shot and O-Shot Can Boost Your Satisfaction in the Bedroom

If your body doesn’t function as you’d like it to in the sex and intimacy department, you’re not alone. Research shows that about 43% of women and 31% of men report some type of sexual function problem, such as vaginal pain, lack of lubrication, or erectile dysfunction. 

While sometimes these issues result from an underlying condition, such as diabetes or heart disease, they also affect otherwise healthy individuals. That’s where the O-shot and P-shot come in.

Dr. Robert Rubin, at Improving Your Health, is pleased to provide effective treatments for sexual dysfunction, including the O-shot and P-shot. These minimally invasive treatments take only minutes during an in-office appointment, with benefits that can extend well beyond the bedroom.

Effects of sexual dysfunction

If you’ve enjoyed sex, you know that the benefits are many. Pleasurable sex can help reduce stress, draw couples closer, strengthen your immune system, and even minimize pain. 

When you’re struggling with sexual dysfunction, on the other hand, multiple life areas can suffer. Sexual dysfunction can lead to reduced self-esteem, lower sexual self-confidence, hampered intimacy with a partner, and more. 

Given that sex is a qualify-of-life issue, seeking appropriate care is important. Dr. Rubin provides the O-shot and P-shot as two such options. 

P-shot basics

The P-shot contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP). When injected in the penis, these concentrated platelets stimulate natural healing and regrowth of tissue, leading to restored appearance and function. 

A small amount of your blood is extracted and then run through a centrifuge to extract the PRP. You won’t have to worry about pain, thanks to a topical anesthetic cream. 

While more research is needed, we find that this natural treatment can improve erections and sensation in the penis for 9-18 months. The P-shot may also enhance the effectiveness of other treatments, such as oral medication for erectile dysfunction.

O-shot basics

The O-shot uses PRP, too, but for different purposes and body parts. Injected into the vaginal region, this treatment aims to increase physical arousal, lubrication, and orgasmic pleasure during partner sex and masturbation. 

Some women have reported less urinary incontinence and chronic pain related to childbirth after the O-shot, too. These benefits may stem from reduced inflammation brought on by PRP and lead to increased sexual desire. This is important, given that sexual dysfunction can make sex unappealing or anxiety-inducing. 

Similar to the P-shot, the O-shot tends to be well-tolerated and brings benefits that last for months. 

Getting started with the O-shot or P-shot

If you’re interested in the O- or P- shot, Dr. Rubin will conduct an exam, during which you’ll discuss your symptoms, overall health, and treatment goals. If he feels you’re a good candidate, he’ll help determine your best treatment plan. 

While you might notice benefits after a single treatment, many people benefit from a series of treatments. To find out if the O-shot or P-shot is right for you, call one of our offices in Naples and Tampa, Florida, or request an appointment with Dr. Rubin on our website. We would love to help you regain the intimate function and pleasure you deserve.
