The Feminine Shot Burlingame

What is The Feminine Shot (Feminine Shot)?

The Feminine Shot (also known as the Feminine Shot) is a procedure that involves injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into areas of the vagina as a way of treating sexual dysfunction or stress incontinence. PRP injections work to stimulate cell growth inside of the vagina and near the clitoris to make it more sensitive and allow orgasms to be achieved easily. The Feminine Shot can also help cure urinary incontinence, which is defined as involuntary urine leakage.


Why Would A Woman Get An Feminine Shot?

An Feminine Shot can have several benefits for women. However, age and traumatic incidents are some of the more common reasons for women to lose sensation in and around the vagina. Along with age, menopause becomes more prevalent, which means that urinary incontinence also becomes an issue. “In young women, the prevalence of incontinence is usually low, but prevalence peaks around menopause, with a steady rise there-after into later life” (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, 2001).

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) can disrupt women’s lives. In the United States, HSDD affects “26.7% among premenopausal women to 52.4% among naturally menopausal women,” and this condition is experienced at a higher rate for menopausal women who undergo surgery to induce menopause, according to the National Institutes of Health (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, 2008).

Reasons to receive an Feminine Shot include:

  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Sexual disorders such as:
  • Female Sexual Arousal Disorder
  • Female Orgasmic Disorder
  • Dyspareunia
