What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control. It is an extremely common problem that can be embarrassing. This disorder can range in severity from occasional leaking when you cough to an urge to urinate so strong you cannot reach a bathroom in time. In women, urinary incontinence can be caused by a multitude of things, including:

  • Pregnancy

  • Age-related changes

  • Menopause

  • Childbirth

  • Obstruction

  • Neurological disorders

The O-Shot may be able to help prevent a leaky bladder by tightening vaginal laxity. The muscles of your bladder and urethra become stretched, but this may be treated by the O-Shot.

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot, or the Orgasm Shot, is performed using platelet-rich plasma to improve the production of collagen in your vaginal tissue. This procedure can treat many things, including:

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Pain during sex

  • Dryness

  • Decreased libido

  • Lack of sensation

  • Elasticity

During your appointment, our team will draw a small amount of your blood to make your unique O-Shot solution. The blood is placed in a machine where it is separated into plasma and red blood cells. When your treatment is ready, it is placed in a needle and injected carefully into your upper vaginal area. Numbing cream is used to reduce any discomfort you may feel. If you think the O-Shot may be the option for you, contact Dr. Barker and our offices at Integrative Pain and Wellness Center in Southlake, TX to see how we can help you with your urinary incontinence.

What happens after my procedure?

Many people can feel their results after only one treatment. For those who do not, it might be recommended to get more than one round of shots. You may also see more improvement over time, but your results will depend on your individual conditions. Your recovery can be extremely quick. You may have some local sensitivity for a few days. You can have sexual intercourse the same day as the treatment. You may also resume normal daily activities right after your treatment is over. Your treatment may last up to two years, but results can vary from patient to patient.
