O-Shot and the menopause

‘The change’, ‘the time of life’ – call it what you will, it is an unavoidable fact that almost all women go through the menopause.

However, for many women this natural process can be a time of anxiety and distress due to the various symptoms that can accompany it. The menopause is caused by a change in the balance of the body's hormones. In the UK, the average age for a woman to reach the menopause is 51. But around 1 in 100 women experience the menopause before 40 years of age. Most women will experience some symptoms during the menopause. The duration and severity of these symptoms varies from woman to woman.

Some women breeze through the whole thing and hardly notice it's happening. Four in five, however, will experience some symptoms which may include:

Hot flushes – short, sudden feelings of heat, usually in the face, neck and chest, which can make your skin red and sweaty

Night sweats – hot flushes that occur at night

Difficulty sleeping – this may make you feel tired and irritable during the day

Reduced sex drive (libido)

Problems with memory and concentration

Vaginal dryness and pain, itching or discomfort during sex

Joint stiffness, aches and pains

Reduced muscle mass

Weak bladder

After the menopause the ovaries make less oestrogen. The lack of oestrogen can lead to thinning of the tissues of the vagina and a reduction in the number of glands that make mucus. At least half of women experience vaginal dryness. The genital area may also change in appearance.

Many women have difficulty managing their symptoms and struggle to find support.

Why not consider O-Shot PRP therapy?

Quite often HRT, with all it’s known side effects, or other, less effective alternative remedies, may be offered for the relief of menopausal symptoms. Completely natural and risk free, the O-Shot could be just the answer you are looking for. The procedure is quick, (takes about 20 mins) and painless, with no negative side effects, only positives.

The procedure 

A small amount of your own blood is drawn, then using a proprietary technique, platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the blood and injected into the numbed area near the clitoris and upper vagina. There is no recovery time and results are almost immediate in some women.

What to expect after treatment

Decreased or completely resolved pain during sex

Increased ability to have vaginal orgasms

Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation

A tighter vaginal canal (if felt to be too loose prior)

A more elastic vaginal canal (if felt to be too tight prior, usually after menopause)

Younger, smoother skin externally (lips of the vagina)

Decreased or resolved overactive bladder and/or urinary incontinence

Stronger and more frequent orgasms

Increased vaginal lubrication

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for menopausal symptoms.
