I have been treating men and women with PRP Therapy for several years. This is a great article from describing prp therapy. You can also watch my video.

The human body has the exceptional magnitude to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP presents patients with a long lasting, permanent solution involving the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP was originally used for sports injuries, dentistry, and would healing, but now has recently evolved into improving physiological dysfunction and aesthetic concerns. Platelet Rich Plasma is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.

PRP Therapy Men


To develop a PRP treatment, first, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, just like a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The highly concentrated platelets are injected back into your tissues to stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue. The plasma can be injected into your face, scalp, muscles and joints, and even sex organs. The PRP procedure utilizes what your body has already produced, so your body willingly accepts the treatment without rejection or any reactions. PRP treatments are minimally invasive, typically patients experience little to no discomfort with a very short healing period, all done within an hour. It’s like reversing your clock and what was aged or damaged is brand new.


Since PRP is withdrawn from your own blood, it minimizes the risk of allergic reaction, skin sensitivity or rejection. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is rapidly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic concerns including:

◆ Sexual Issues in men and women

◆ Acne or sagging skin ◆ Rosacea ◆ Urinary Incontinence ◆ Frown lines, crow’s feet ◆ Scarring

Many women are reluctant to bring up intimate concerns with their doctors. These concerns are very common. Symptoms may be decreased sexual pleasure due to poor lubrication, pain with intercourse, vaginal canal might feel too loose (less sensation) or too tight (discomfort), and difficulty or inability achieving an orgasm. Low sex drive or libido may also occur affecting self-esteem resulting in significant stress between partners.

The O-Shot®️, using your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), may be an option for you.

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled growth on the inside or outer surface of one of a woman’s ovaries. Many women develop ovarian cysts. The majority of these growths are harmless, cause only very minor discomfort or no ovarian cyst symptoms at all, and disappear without treatment in just a few months. However, some cysts can cause severe symptoms and require urgent treatment.

Ovarian Cysts Dr Schultis Covington

Common Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts

Most ovarian cysts do not cause any symptoms, and often these cysts disappear without treatment. However, larger ovarian cysts can cause symptoms including:

Pelvic Pain: Sharp or dull ache in the lower abdominal area on the side of the body where the cyst is located.

Abdominal Discomfort: Sensation of heaviness or fullness in the abdomen.

Bloating: A bloated sensation.

Severe Symptoms Need Urgent Medical Attention

  • Sudden severe pelvic or abdominal pain.

  • Pain and vomiting or fever.

  • Signs of shock, such as cold, damp skin, rapid breathing, weakness, light-headedness.

Functional Cysts

Each month, a woman’s ovaries develop follicles, which are cyst-like structures. The follicles generate the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, and they release an egg during ovulation.

When a normally occurring monthly follicle continues growing (either before or after releasing the egg)

it becomes a functional cyst. This type of ovarian cyst is usually harmless, does not cause pain, and often goes away on their own.

Risk Factors for Ovarian Cysts

Hormone Problems


Pelvic Infection


History of Ovarian Cyst

Ovarian Cyst Complications

Less common kinds of ovarian cysts sometimes develop in women after menopause and may be cancerous. Post-menopausal women should maintain regular exams to help ensure early detection and timely ovarian cyst removal, if needed.

Ovarian Cyst Prevention

Ovarian cysts are not preventable but having routine pelvic examinations by your gyn can help ensure that any changes are detected as early as possible.
