A: The O-Shot procedure is relatively quick, typically taking about 30 minutes from start to finish, including the preparation of the PRP.
A: Most patients report minimal discomfort during the O-Shot procedure due to the application of a numbing cream to the injection area. Any discomfort felt is typically brief.

A: While the O-Shot has been effective for many in reducing or eliminating symptoms of SUI, it is not guaranteed to be a cure. The results can vary from person to person.
A: The use of PRP in medical treatments, including for SUI, is an area of active research. Many patients report positive outcomes, and ongoing studies are assessing the long-term effectiveness and mechanisms of action.
A: Unfortunately, we find that most insurance companies do not cover the O-Shot® procedure as a treatment for stress urinary incontinence, chronic vaginal pain, or sexual health. Although we do not file insurance claims, we are happy to provide our patients with the necessary paperwork to file their own claims. Alternatively, we offer several easy and convenient financing options.
