Woman shares discovery for revitalised sex life: ‘It’s just amazing’

The quest for a fulfilling sex life is a journey to embark on, and it's a path filled with challenges. For women, the changes brought on by peri-menopause can often lead to a decline in sexual satisfaction and desire.

But what if there was a way to turn back the clock, to rediscover the passion and pleasure of your youth?

This is the story of how one woman found her answer in a groundbreaking treatment dubbed 'female Viagra'.

Roxanne Merchant, a 44-year-old marketing professional from England, found herself grappling with the unwelcome symptoms of peri-menopause.

The physical changes she experienced, such as vaginal dryness and decreased sensation, made sex more of a chore than a pleasure. It was a reality that many women silently endured, but Roxanne was determined to find a solution.

Her search led her to the O-Shot, a procedure that has been likened to a 'vampire facial' for the vagina.

Roxanne came across this after searching for peri-menopause treatments, and some of her friends also had the same procedure in the United States.

Dr Farzana Khan was the only doctor in Roxanne’s area offering the treatment.

'I was a little nervous at first and didn’t know what to expect but the first part of the treatment was a consultation on what to expect,’ Roxanne said.

She claimed the treatment was painless with 'not even a mild discomfort' and no downtime was needed.

This innovative treatment involves the injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) a component of one's own blood that is rich in healing factors—directly into the vaginal tissue.

The idea is that these platelets can stimulate tissue regeneration and repair, leading to improved sexual function and enjoyment.

A similar treatment is also used for the face to banish wrinkles, which was also popularised by Hollywood icons like Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow.

The O-Shot is part of a growing trend of PRP therapies that have been used in various medical fields, from orthopedics to dermatology.

According to Pain Specialists Australia, PRP treatment is especially useful for chronic tendon injuries that result in hip pain, such as that of the gluteus medius tendon, knee pain, such as that of the patellar tendon, or elbow pain (tennis elbow).

Now, some private clinics have been using it as a libido booster.

After one shot of the O-Shot, Roxanne noticed an improvement in her sex life.

‘I am having sex like I am 20 again and having to catch my breath after orgasms–even my partner was like "wow”,’ she said.

'[Prior to this], every time I had sex, I needed to use lubricant more and more. If I used anything like bath bombs, even organic ones, they made everything worse.’

'It got to the stage where I was having to wear granny pants, so I wouldn’t be as irritated and sore, but I [still] would notice small scratches or rips or tears down below because of the dryness.'

Praising the O-Shot, Roxanne said, ‘A course of three treatments was recommended to me, and now the sensation and hydration is just amazing, and this really changed my life.’

'It’s like the female version of Viagra.’

'Women should not suffer in silence and have to use things like lube when we know it’s sticky and just adds to the problem.’

Her confidence in the bedroom was ‘through the roof’ because she didn’t have to worry about how she would feel after sex. She also didn’t need to rush to the bathroom to shower.

Aside from her sex life, the O-Shot also improved the appearance of her vagina, saying, ‘It looks more rejuvenated and youthful.’

A happy love life is a key ingredient to having a fulfilling and healthy lifestyle. But how do couples enhance their sex life and overall being?

Sounds like it would be a painful procedure. Probably expensive as well. Not sure there would be too many women willing to have this. It would probably be a short term fix as well if its use in other areas of the body is anything to go by.
This guy has been in trouble with the FDA , not a reliable "medical breakthrough" More research should be done if anyone is thinking about this treatment.
Just remember the old joke.
The doctor tells the husband; "your wife will die if she has sex"
They go home and it is decided the husband should sleep on the couch.
In the middle of the night they meet one another on the stairs, the husband says; "I was just coming up to kill you".
And the wife replies, "I was just coming down to commit suicide."
