What is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot®, or Orgasm Shot® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily augment and rejuvenate the Grafenburg spot (G-Spot), clitoris, and labia. It is a sexual and cosmetic rejuvenation procedure for the vagina using the preparation and injection of blood-derived growth factors derived from a patient’s own blood (the growth factors must be used in the specific way specified by the trademarked procedure to constitute the Orgasm Shot®/O Shot®).
If you are one of the 25% of women experience orgasmic dysfunction — the persistent or recurrent delay or absence of orgasm following a normal sexual excitement phase, you are not alone. Factors such as medications, hormone issues, neurochemical imbalances, decreased blood flow and nerve conduction, and other medical/physiological problems or relationship issues can all contribute to a decreased ability to reach orgasm. Thankfully, there may be a natural solution using your body’s own PRP.
The O-Shot is an in-office procedure performed where your own blood platelets are injected into vaginal tissue and the “Orgasm System” of women to improve function. The mechanisms allow plasma-rich platelets to naturally attract your own stem cells to the injected area. According to Dr. Charles Runels, the procedure can “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 O-Shot® injects the individual’s own PRP into the target area using a very specific method of amplifying or augmenting the vaginal tissues.
Using your own growth factors, PRP has a record of thousands of injections with the face with not one incidence of fibrosis, infection, or allergic reaction (as can be seen with collagen in other G-spot injection procedures). Collagen and collagen-like materials have been used for years to inject the vagina for help with urinary incontinence and to augment the G-spot, yet collagen has more potential side effects than does PRP.
The effect can last for up to 6 months or longer — but will vary based on the patient’s health status.
The O-shot can improve sexual function and have other benefits which include:
- Heightened clitoral arousal
- Stronger orgasm
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Decreased pain during sex
- Tightened vaginal canal
- Improved elasticity of the vaginal canal
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (vaginal lips)
- Increased lubrication
- Decreased urinary incontinence (when you accidentally leak when laughing, coughing or exercising). It’s true that many of the same women who have difficulty achieving orgasm also have problems with involuntary loss of urine, since weak pelvic floor muscles can be responsible for both problems)
- Decreased overactive bladder
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
How the O-Shot Works:
First the doctor or nurse applies a numbing cream to the vagina and the arm. Then blood is drawn from the arm in the same way as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet-rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. The whole process takes about 10 minutes and can be done there in the room with the patient. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected into the clitoris and into the upper vagina into an area most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot. Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, the woman feels little or no pain.
Higher concentrations of calcium chloride can usually be found in the tissue than in the blood, so when the doctor adds calcium chloride to the PRP, then the platelets think that tissue injury released the calcium into the bloodstream.
PRP has been used effectively for a variety of treatments for more than 20 years. Over 500,000 procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no significant side effects or complications reported (unlike the granuloma formation that happens with other accepted procedures).
