When Dr. Charles Runels first began using the O-Shot to enhance women’s sexual pleasure, his patients reported another amazing benefit. More than 90 percent of Dr. Runels’ patients who previously suffered with some level of stress urinary incontinence told him that they had completely stopped leaking urine.
Dr. Runels reports that this number is actually closer to 99.9 percent for younger, otherwise healthy women with a normal body weight (BMI below 25).
What’s amazing to me is that approximately 40 percent of women in this country have stress urinary incontinence problems, but no one is willing to talk openly about it,” said Dr. Runels. “How many physicians can say to their patients, ‘Come to my office on your lunch break, and you’ll walk out with zero stress incontinence?’ ~ Dr. Ripoll
The O-Shot’s high cure rate for such an embarrassing and socially debilitating condition goes beyond what other methods of treating stress incontinence can offer: acupuncture, biofeedback training, electrical stimulation, bulking agent injections, Kegel exercises, pelvic floor exercises, Renessa, and others.
Dr. Emilia Ripoll’s 25 years experience of doing vaginal injections made The O-Shot a natural extension of the services she already offers her urology patients.
In addition, PRP injections are “autologous” (meaning the material comes from a woman’s own body).
To date, there has never been a report of PRP injections causing allergic reactions or urethral obstruction issues.
Unlike PRP, urethral bulking injections with materials such as Coaptite can cause urethral obstruction/blockage. So women can go from not being able to hold their urine to not being able to pee (out of the frying pan and into the fire). In addition, bulking injections can also cause painful granulomas (nodules) to form in the vaginal tissue. There have been zero reports of granulomas forming with vaginal PRP injections.
How the O-Shot Cures Stress Incontinence
As with all PRP procedures, the O-Shot begins with a couple of vials of blood being drawn. The plasma that contains the PRP is then separated from the red and white blood cells by a centrifuge. The platelets that contain highly active growth factors (glycoproteins called “chemokines” and “cytokines“) are then injected with an extremely thin needle (27 gauge) into anesthetized areas of the vagina.
The chemokines and cytokines within the PRP stimulate the local “uni-potent” stem cells (stem cells that only produce new cells in the adjacent tissue), which in turn triggers the growth of new tissue in and around the injection locations. The growth factors within PRP stimulate the production of new cells, enhance the migration of these cells in and around the injection sites, repair damaged cells, and extend the life of existing cells — all of which contribute to tissue rejuvenation.
PRP injections also enhance the proliferation of fibroblast growth factors (FGF) that direct the formation of new blood vessels and capillaries (angiogenesis) and wound healing.
As with wound healing, the rejuvenation of the injection areas in roof of the vagina and in/around the clitoris involves numerous tissue types (blood vessels, nerves, smooth muscle fibers, lymph vessels, connective tissues, endothelium and so on). So when the vagina and the clitoris receive a concentrated wave of bioactive glycoproteins and FGF from a PRP injection, they immediately begin the process of generating new tissue.
It is this new tissue in and around the clitoris that stimulates a “more amorous” sexual response, while the natural build up of tissue in the roof of the vagina virtually eliminates stress incontinence.
