The O-Shot (also known as Orgasm Shot) is a minimally invasive vaginal rejuvenating treatment for women who are experiencing low libido, difficulty achieving orgasm, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse or urinary incontinence.
The O-Shot® uses growth factors from a woman’s own blood plasma to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation and can help improve conditions such as:
The O-Shot® is a dose of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injected directly into a woman’s clitoris and vagina, under local anesthesia. PRP is widely used to speed healing and new tissue growth, and these same properties stimulate healthy tissue regeneration and improved blood flow in the clitoris and vagina. These rejuvenated tissues offer women the opportunity to experience a heightened orgasmic response and can also mean an improvement in urinary incontinence symptoms.
Sexual and health benefits of O-Shot®:
The PRP growth factors begin to work immediately by plumping the treated areas and by activating the stem cells in the vaginal and clitoral tissues for new growth and regeneration. Many patients experience noticeable improvements within the first three weeks following treatment, but the full regrowth of tissue is not complete until approximately three months after the injection. On average, the O-Shot® lasts about 12-18 months.
Women who have had the O-Shot® report more frequent and more intense orgasms. Those who have had difficulty achieving orgasm now find it easier and more satisfying. Women who were happy with their orgasms before treatment upgrade their experience to "mind-blowing." Less vaginal and vulvar pain, including pain during intercourse – Women who experience pain caused by scarring or damaged tissues can often find relief with O-Shot®. As the tissues are rejuvenated, they become more resilient and elastic and damaged nerves are helped to heal by the increased blood flow and new tissue growth.
It's easy for libido to be low if you aren't getting any satisfaction out of sex. O-Shot® not only improves sensitivity and sexual response, but it also helps heal the pain that may make women willing to ignore or forgo sex out of fear. A healthier, more responsive vagina and clitoris paired with better response mean more enthusiasm surrounding sexual activity.
The O-Shot® injection has proven to be 90% effective in treating urinary stress incontinence and is also effective in treating urge incontinence. Just as the PRP helps rejuvenate vaginal and clitoral tissues, it can encourage the tissues that help support the bladder and control urination to regenerate, strengthen and “bulk up” to help decrease the symptoms of stress incontinence. PRP can also improve blood flow and improve the health of the nerves and tissues responsible for controlling urge incontinence.
When O-Shot® is used for lichen sclerosus, many women see improvements after their initial treatment, but it is safe to repeat treatments until the desired level of healing is achieved. O-Shot® treatment often means women with lichen sclerosus can then go without other treatments such as steroids and simply repeat O-Shot® as needed.
Most women have minor blood spotting following O-Shot treatment as would happen with any injection. However, there is no downtime after O-Shot® treatment. Women may resume normal activities, including sex, that same day. Women may notice a full feeling in the vagina for one to three days, which is safe and normal. Vaginal swelling may cause an irregular urine stream, which is not dangerous and should resolve itself after a few days.
The beginnings of those effects from the actual PRP-triggered improvements usually start at about three weeks and are fully realized in two to three months.
It may take up to 12 weeks for the full effects of O-Shot® to be experienced and recognized. Women who want an added boost or who want to repeat treatments when the results begin to fade will find that the impact of O-Shot® is cumulative, building improvements with each treatment. Because the PRP is created with the woman’s own blood, repeat treatments are safe.
