PRP Procedures are not approved or disapproved by FDA because PRP is not a drug. The FDA has approved the PRP harvesting kits that I use. They have been deemed safe. PRP has always been shown to be safe and is being shown in many medical specialties to be effective at regeneration, healing and rejuvenation.
There is no limit to the number of O-shots a woman can have safely. Evaluation by a physician skilled in the use of PRP is necessary to determine potential risk and benefit.
Some women choose to have a 2nd O-shot for various reasons. You may have a 2nd O-shot after 8 weeks should you desire.
We would like to have a very brief phone conversation or office visit (15 minutes) at 8 weeks after your procedure. We want to know the benefits that you may have experienced from having the O-Shot. A plan for further care will be considered at that time.
There are typically no side effects or downtime. There may be a few drops of blood from the injection site. You can return to work, exercise and any other activity the same day (including sexual activity).
Most women are quite comfortable during the procedure. The discomfort is often described as a mild pinch. The numbing feeling may last 30-60 minutes after the procedure.
Dr. Hayes will quickly review your medical history. You will have an opportunity to ask questions should you have any. A topical numbing cream is applied to the injection area. Your blood is then drawn and prepared. Once your PRP is ready, Dr. Hayes will inject into two small areas of the vagina. The entire process takes approximately 30 minutes.
You may have services on the same day as a consultation as long as you make your desire for service known at the time of scheduling.
Yes. I’m specially trained, certified and licensed to administer the O-Shot.
Many women report significant improvement of stress and urge incontinence. There are also many reports of total resolution of the problem. Strengthening the pelvic floor musculature in conjunction with PRP can significantly impact urinary incontinence. We recommend using the INTENSITY vaginal device (protocol) for the best combined outcome in conjunction with the O Shot.
