O-Shot is a type of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for your vagina. Platelet rich plasma is the portion of our blood that contains all the growth factors that help us heal ourselves.
Some women encounter sexual dysfunction such as low desire, dryness, orgasm disorder, Dyspareunia (difficult or painful intercourse).
Sexual disorders decrease the sense of well-being and lead to a lack of energy, creativity and confidence, and may affect the relationships within the couple.
Women undergo this treatment to witness dramatic improvements in sexual functions, such as:
The physician will use the patients’ blood. This procedure uses a centrifuge and isolates platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the patient blood. Platelets extracted from the blood, are placed in syringe and injected with a very tiny needle, in the area next to the clitoris, and in the upper vagina most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot. Those platelets then stimulate the growth of new cells and the regeneration of the old ones in the injected areas, making them more sensitive to the touch.
This injection will trigger the platelets to release seven growth factors that activate the stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues. This will regenerate and activate the tissue in these areas, increase the blood flood, and thus will improve the functionality and performance of the organs themselves and enhance sexual response within days of the treatment.
The Orgasm “O” Shot, is a non-surgical treatment which pledges to increase sexual arousal and rejuvenate the vagina. Patients report stronger and more frequent orgasms, increased natural lubrication and greater arousal after having the procedure.
The O-Shot is not a drug. It’s a procedure performed in a medical office in which your own blood platelets are injected into vaginal tissue. The theory proposed by the inventor, Dr. Charles Runels, is that platelets naturally attract your own stem cells to the injected area, and “generate healthier and more functional tissue in the areas of sexual response in the vagina (G-Spot, O-Spot, Skene’s Glands, urethra, and vaginal wall).”
The shot works by using “high quality” Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) produced from the patient’s own blood. The PRP contains cell regenerating growth factors which, when injected into specific areas of the vagina, trigger stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue growth as well as help improve the vascularization of the area.
The O-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the arm. This sample is then put into a special centrifuge to produce the Platelet-Rich Plasma. Once the PRP is extracted from the blood, it is injected into the numbed area near the clitoris and upper vagina.
Getting the O-Shot is usually painless. We numb the area with a gentle, cream-based product. Although every patient’s experience is different, most experience only minor discomfort. The injection feels like a slight pinch or warm sensation. There is no recovery time with this non-surgical procedure. It is quick and generally takes about 30 minutes to complete, including the numbing process.
Most patients experience minimal to no side effects after receiving the orgasm shot. However, you may experience mild redness, swelling and/or numbness for the first few days to one week.
Patients can just have one orgasm shot or come back for more, which will build on the existing results. 8 weeks is generally recommended between treatments to ensure the full effects of the first treatment have been felt. However, you can speak with a medical provider about the timeframe that works best for you.
The results can vary depending on the patient’s starting point. For example, factors such as age, medical conditions, and hormonal problems can determine the results. The injection is not a “magic stick” – 50 percent of women may experience instantaneous “wow effects” while the other half may just notice a marked improvement.
Patients have reported a range of positive effects from the shots including:
Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
You may experience an increase in sexual desire and pleasure immediately, but full results are usually enjoyed after 3 months. Generally, women will begin to experience heightened sensation in the first 3-7 days and new tissue will begin to develop over the next 3-9 weeks. This will peak around the 3-month mark.
O-Shot procedure results can vary depending on the patient, but they generally last between 14 and 18 months. On average, women repeat the procedure every 18 months.
