As women age, diminished sexual desire, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and reduced sexual responsiveness are common and unwanted symptoms. Using the power of your own platelet rich plasma (PRP), a procedure known as the O-Shot® is helping to revitalize sexual health and self-confidence for women – without surgery or downtime. In Covington, LA just outside of New Orleans, Dr. Stefanie A. Schultis is a certified physician specially trained to provide this state-of-the-art procedure that has the power to dramatically change a woman’s quality of life.

The O-Shot® for women is used to treat urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and even reduced sexual responsiveness in women, particularly those who are post-menopausal. Both safe and nonsurgical, the procedure helps stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation.

The O-Shot® uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own blood to effectively and naturally treat a variety of age-related issues that impact sexual performance and satisfaction. The platelet rich plasma is administered by injection into the vagina (after local anesthesia of course – the procedure itself is completely painless). The PRP works by stimulating stem cells, collagen, and blood vessels, effectively rejuvenating the vaginal region and making it feel and respond to stimulation the way it did when a woman was younger.

Other benefits include:

  • Relief from painful intercourse

  • Increased clitoral sensitivity and arousal

  • Improved skin texture of the vulva (vaginal lips)

  • Tighter vaginal opening for more pleasurable intercourse

  • Increased arousal from G-spot stimulation

  • More intense and more frequent orgasms

For patients wondering if the O-Shot® is right for them, Dr. Schultis recommends a consultation that includes a review of your medical history, symptoms and expected outcome. For those who are considered good candidates, the O-Shot® is performed in-office with no down time required. Most patients are in and out in as little as 30 minutes. While the time investment is short, the potentially dramatic improvement in sexual vitality and quality of life can have positive effects for years to come.

Hormone Imbalance in Men

Testosterone is very important in the physiology of numerous organ systems of the body. The serum testosterone concentration declines as part of the process of aging and even the slightest change can have a very big impact on a man's overall health and well-being. With low testosterone levels (sometimes referred to as Andropause or Low T) you may experience some of these symptoms including: Fatigue Mood Disturbances Decreased Libido Changes in erectile and ejaculatory quality Loss of Bone and Muscle Mass Loss of Body Hair Increased Body Fat Hot Flashes Hormonal imbalance can contribute to new on-set medical problems such as: Central obesity (beer belly) Elevated triglycerides/cholesterol Insulin resistance Type II diabetes Hypertension Cardiovascular disease Andropause typically occurs between the ages of 40 and 60, but, is seen in men as young as thirty. Not every man gets every symptom. Hormone replacement pellet therapy is not recommended for men who may plan on fatherhood now or in the future.

Bio-identical hormone replacement pellet therapy is an all-natural treatment that delivers a constant level of hormones which helps in alleviating many of the symptoms of Low T while helping to improve a man's overall health.
