Fem Shot

Did you know that nearly 40 percent of women in the United States suffer from some form of female sexual dysfunction (FSD)? While male sexual dysfunction has been researched and addressed in a variety of ways, very little research has been done on FSD. In fact, women tend to suffer more from sexual dysfunction than men, but because there is still a stigma around female orgasms and sexual health, many women find it difficult to talk about it with their gynecologist, making it more difficult to find a way to treat and improve the female sexual experience.

At Cosmetic Gynecology and Aesthetics, our goal is to be a practice OF women, FOR women. We understand firsthand the issues you may be facing as age, hormone changes and other factors begin to contribute to a decline in intimacy. In fact, the reasons behind the decrease in sexual desire or function can be attributed to a natural decrease in hormone levels as we age, after childbirth and even when under stress. Other causes can be due to medical conditions (such as diabetes), medications, or psychological reasons (depression or anxiety) to name a few. Whatever the cause, we offer vaginal rejuvenation treatment options designed to help you get back to feeling feminine and getting more enjoyment from your sex life.

One of the treatments we offer at Cosmetic Gynecology and Aesthetics is the Fem Shot. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes growth factors from your own blood (known as platelet rich plasma therapy) to revitalize your vaginal tissue and clitoris to help alleviate female sexual dysfunction or simply to magnify your pleasure experience during intercourse.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma therapy (or PRP) is a treatment that has typically been used in sports medicine and orthopedics to promote healing, but has also been used effectively in other fields of medicine, as well as in cosmetic treatments to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Recent research has shown that PRP can now be used to stimulate the growth of vaginal tissue, reconstructing the collagen and strengthening the tissue the same way it does when used as a facial skin treatment.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Plasma is an ingredient in the blood, and is a clear, yellowish liquid consisting of about 90 percent water. Your blood volume is made up of about 55 percent plasma, and its main job is to assist the blood in moving smoothly through your body, while working to keep your blood pressure stabilized. It also transports the proteins in the blood that are vital for clotting and immune support, and monitors and balances pH levels to ensure that your cells are functioning as they should.

Platelets are cells in the blood that are responsible for clotting. They are inactive most of the time, floating around in the blood until the body detects an injury. The damaged blood vessels at the site of the injury send out a signal to call the platelets to the area, where they bind to the vessel and cause your blood to clot, stopping the bleeding.

Platelet rich plasma is formulated by drawing some of your own blood and processing it in a centrifuge, which separates the plasma and platelets from the other cells in the blood. The combination of platelets and plasma contains stimulating growth factors that can boost the regeneration of new, healthy vaginal tissue.

What to Expect from the Fem Shot Procedure

The Fem Shot is a quick, virtually painless procedure that is performed right in our office. We start by drawing a small amount of your blood, then processing it through a centrifuge. Once the PRP is extracted, it is carefully injected into areas near the clitoris and upper vagina. We use topical anesthetic cream to reduce any discomfort you may experience.

What the Fem Shot Can Treat

As we age and hormonal changes decrease the estrogen levels in our bodies, many women experience not only functional problems, but lack of sexual desire and loss of confidence in their sexuality. The Fem Shot may help if you suffer from:

  • Low sex drive
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Difficulty becoming aroused or achieving orgasm

These and other feminine sexual health issues can be addressed by the Fem Shot, including:

  • Increased sensitivity and sensation
  • Increased sexual desire
  • Stronger and more frequent orgasms
  • Increased natural lubrication
  • May decreased pain during intercourse
  • May decreased urinary incontinence<

Individual results will vary, with some women experiencing more noticeable effects than others. Some women may need more than one treatment to achieve the results they desire.

If you suffer from female sexual dysfunction in any form, and it is affecting the quality of your life and your confidence, the Fem Shot may be the answer. Call Cosmetic Gynecology and Aesthetics today at 904-384-8023 to schedule a consultation.
