O-Shot Procedure in Tatler Magazine
The answer to female impotence
By: Irish Tatler Staff
 
ENTER The O Zone...

What would you say if we told you there was a shot which you could get directly into your clitoris, which would increase your sexual desire, give you mind-blowing orgasms and even treat urinal incontinence... and all of this could be achieved on your lunch break with zero downtime?  You'd probably believe us more readily if we told you we'd commuted to work this morning on a purple unicorn. But the truth is that this procedure, known as the O-Shot, does exist and is about to become mainstream. In fact, you may have already heard of it in another guise - the vampire facial (made famous by Kim Kardashian, if you happened to catch that particular episode of Kim and Kourtney Take Miami). The vampire facial is the brainchild of Dr. Charles Runels, who saw that PRP (Plasma Rich Platelets) medical technology was revolutionising medicine by helping to heal musculoskeletal injuries, and that it could also be applied to the the face to encourage skin rejuvenation.

As part of the treatment, a blood sample is taken from the patient and using a centrifuge, platelet rich plasma (PRP) is isolated. This PRP is full of growth factors, which are injected into the affected area to activate stem cells. In 2010, it struck Dr Runels that this technology could be used not only in facials, but in another unlikely way. "One day a patient of mine was undergoing a facial, and asked if this procedure could, in theory, be used on her vagina. And of course I said that it could, so the idea for the O-Shot was born from this."

­Thousands Of Women Are Opting For This 'Feminine Fix'
She calls her results after several THERMIva treatments "life changing."
 
By: Wendy Suares
 

More women are taking action to change how they look and feel down below. Cosmetic tweaking to get a so-called "designer vagina" used to mean invasive surgery. But not anymore. We have learned tens of thousands of women, including right here in the metro, are turning to a groundbreaking procedure that you could get on your lunch break.

The march of time can take a toll on some of our most private body parts. But what if we could reverse the clock with something as simple as a wand?

THERMIva is one of growing number of vaginal radiofrequency treatments on the market. Physician's assistant, Tiffany Bankston performs the 30 minute procedure on women ranging from their 20's into their 70's at Genesis Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa.

"We're just kind of making general sweeping motions all throughout the canal," Bankston said. "Then we'll come on the outside and tighten up the skin if they have any skin laxity"

The makers of THERMIva claim the temperature controlled device can help everything from dryness and pain during sex, to bladder control, and can even alter the outward appearance. All of this with no pain or downtime. Some are calling it "a facelift for the vagina."

"It is not painful," says Charlene Bowen. "It's like a warm massage."

Which is the best IUD for me?
 
By: Susan Geiger, DNP, MS, WHNP-BC
 

Hormonal contraceptives offer women of all age's protection against unintended pregnancies through suppression of ovulation, thinning of the uterine endometrium, and/or inhibition of sperm motility and decreased sperm dispersion through the cervical canal and into the ovum. Many reliable, effective, and safe contraceptives are available for women, including long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) for women who are not candidates for estrogen-containing birth control or who prefer continuous protection for extended intervals.

Hormonal IUCs release progestin, a synthetic version of the hormone progesterone. The levonorgestrel impregnated IUC releases progestin into the uterine cavity, thickening cervical mucous, and causing thinning of the lining of the endometrium. We carry Liletta and Kyleena which are approved devices in the U.S. These are small, plastic, T-shaped contraceptives, that are placed inside the uterus and prevent pregnancy more than 99% of the time. The progestin IUCs start working about seven days after insertion and may be left in place, depending on the type, from three to seven years. All are inserted by a trained healthcare professional and can easily be removed at any time. 

Liletta slowly releases 52 mg of a progestin hormone called levonorgestrel. This is the same kind of hormone that is often used in birth control pills. Only a small amount of levonorgestrel enters your bloodstream. Neither the Liletta nor the Kyleena contain estrogen. Approved for use in the U.S. in 2015, it measures 32 mm x 32 mm. Kyleena, approved in 2016, contains 19.5 mg of levonorgestrel and measures 28 mm x 30 mm. It works the same way as the other progestin containing IUCs, slowly releasing levonorgestrel over time. Both are effective against unintended pregnancies for up to five years.
