The O-Shot® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure to restore sexual desire and enhance the female orgasm in women as they age and experience a low libido. It is estimated that about 50 percent of all women deal with a lack of sexual desire. The O-Shot® uses platelet-rich plasma injected into the vaginal wall to increase tissue growth and blood flow, which in turn improves feelings and desires.
Not only does the O-Shot® restore the female libido, it provides women with the following benefits:
- Decreases urinary incontinence
- Diminishes painful intercourse
- Increases vaginal lubrication
- Improves physical appearance
- Increases the ability to have an orgasm
- Improves the quality of an orgasm
- No downtime or recovery period
The procedure is similar to the P-Shot® for men. Blood is drawn from the patient, usually in the arm, and placed in a test tube. The test tube goes into a centrifuge that is spun at a very rapid speed to separate the plasma from the other parts of the blood. Once that is complete, a numbing cream is applied to the targeted area of the vagina, and the plasma is injected into the vaginal wall near the clitoris.
The entire procedure takes no more than an hour to complete. As the blood cells are drawn to the area of the injection site, the libido returns and sensations are heightened during intercourse.
There may be some slight spotting immediately after the procedure, but it stops within a short period of time. All activities following the procedure may be resumed with no downtime, including strenuous exercise and sex. A few women report that there are feelings of heightened hyper-sexuality, which resolves itself within a few days. The full effects of the O-Shot® are in full effect within three to four weeks as the new growth factors have to stimulate the action of stem cells to increase blood flow and build new nerve endings in the vaginal tissue. The results of the O-Shot® may last as long as two years. While one treatment is typically all that is needed, some women may choose to have a repeat procedure, which is performed no earlier than eight weeks after the first treatment.
If you have experienced a lack of desire to engage in sexual activities or experience pain that impedes your ability to perform, the O-Shot® may be right for you. Because it uses your own blood to restore the desire and ability to perform, there is no risk of reaction. A consultation with our Medical Staff is the best way to determine if the O-Shot® is the best option.
Yes. The procedure only requires a topical anesthetic.
You may notice improvements in sexual arousal and orgasm as soon as the next day. Positive results should be noticeable within 2-4 weeks and changes can continue for up to 12 weeks.
