What is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot® (also known as the Orgasm Shot) is a non-surgical treatment that uses a patient’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help rejuvenate the vaginal area. It stimulates the growth of new cells and boosts blood flow to the clitoris and vagina for enhanced sensation and improved sexual wellness.
The O-Shot relies on PRP from the patient’s own blood. The body uses these growth factor-rich platelets to initiate cellular repair and specific types of tissue growth, including new collagen and blood vessels. This process is designed to increase sensitivity of clitoral stimulation by improving cell function and increasing blood flow to the vaginal area.
Regenerative Medicine procedures, including stem cell therapy and PRP therapy, have been used successfully for years in many fields of medicine such as Orthopedic and Sports Medicine to help restore injured muscles and tendons. Platelet Rich Plasma is used extensively in Oral & Dental Surgery as well as Aesthetic Medicine including, Hair restoration, and Vampire Face procedures.
After receiving the shot treatment, many patients report stronger orgasms, increased natural lubrication, enhanced arousal, and reduced urinary incontinence.
Dr. Hernberg, Medical Director of Tomorrow’s Wellness Center and a Certified O-Shot® Provider, is pleased to offer this game-changing service for women of all ages. Request an appointment to learn more.
Everyone deserves to feel the most pleasure possible when they’re with their partner; however, sometimes, especially if you are experiencing menopause, our bodies aren’t as cooperative as we’d like. Some women may endure varying degrees of sexual dysfunction that get in the way of feeling pleasure and being in the moment with their partner. If you are searching for a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to make sex more pleasurable then an O-Shot® treatment may help.
Many patients enjoy the following benefits from the O-Shot treatment:
- Increased Libido (sex drive)
- Improves Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
- Improves Female Sexual Arousal Disorder
- Heightened Ability to Achieve Orgasm
- Improves Female Orgasmic Disorder
- Stronger & More Frequent Orgasm
- Increased Vaginal Lubrication & Sensation
- Decrease in Painful Intercourse (Dyspareunia)
- Tightening of Vaginal Opening
- Reduction in Stress Urinary Incontinence and/or Urge Incontinence
How is the O-Shot Performed?
The O-Shot starts with a simple blood draw that is performed in the same way as a typical blood test. Next, using a centrifuge and a special process, platelet-rich plasma is separated from the patient’s own blood. Preparation for this process takes about 20 minutes and can be done in the treatment room with only topical anesthetic numbing cream.
A single O-Shot treatment can last for up to 1 year
Then a very thin needle is used to inject the growth factors into the clitoris and upper vaginal area. Because these areas have been previously numbed with the anesthetic cream, the patient typically experiences only minimal discomfort from the procedure.
Worried about your relationship?
Consider the O-Shot treatment if you have any of these issues:
- Decreased libido (sex drive)
- Urinary incontinence
- Vaginal dryness (with resulting painful intercourse) from Menopause or from Breast Cancer Treatment
- Decreased ability to orgasm
- Postpartum sexual health concerns
- Chronic pain from trauma from child birth (episiotomy scars)
- Chronic pain from mesh
- Chronic interstitial cystitis
- Lichen sclerosis
- Lichen planus
What happens when I get an O-Shot?
When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into an area of treatment, the platelets release chemical mediators including growth factors and bioactive proteins to stimulate rejuvenation. This process begins with the formation of new blood vessels carrying vital nutrients for cells and by attracting Stem Cells to repair tissues and nerves.
Multiple studies have shown that PRP can be used to improve blood flow, increase collagen production, regenerate nerve, and remodel scars into more normal tissue
O-Shot Frequently Asked Questions
Before deciding if O-Shot® is right for you, you may have some questions.
Below are answers to some frequently asked questions. We highly suggest that you schedule a consultation with an experienced provider at Tomorrow’s Wellness Center. Every patient is unique and our providers take that into consideration before recommending any treatment option.
What are Female Sexual Dysfunction Classifications?
- Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) – lack of interest in sex.
- Sexual arousal disorder – the inability to maintain sexual excitement, which includes diminished vaginal lubrication, decreased sensation, decreased blood flow, and decreased vaginal relaxation.
- Orgasmic disorder – difficulty, delay, or absence of orgasm after sufficient stimulation and arousal.
- Sexual pain disorders, including painful sex and vaginal muscle spasm, that interferes with vaginal penetration.
Does the O-Shot Procedure Hurt?
A topical anesthetic is applied to the Clitoral area for 45 minutes prior to the procedure to reduce discomfort. The injection procedure usually takes approximately 15 minutes. The injection procedure is well tolerated and is less painful than a typical facial injection.
When Will I Notice Results?
You may experience an increase in vaginal and clitoral sensitivity during the first week. It may take up to 3 months to notice the full effects of the procedure, but many women report an increase in lubrication, and libido after just a few weeks.
By combining this procedure with the femiWave treatment individuals may notice a more rapid onset of improvement. Depending on the underlying cause(s) for the sexual health issues Bio Identical Hormonal Therapy may also be helpful to achieve optimal results.
Are there any Restrictions after an O-Shot?
A great benefit to this procedure is the lack of downtime. Once the numbing medicine wears off in about an hour, there are no restrictions on anything. The main side effect women experience is a small degree of sensitivity in the treated area, which goes away within a day or two. As can be the case with any injection, there can be a tiny amount of bleeding in the treatment area which generally resolves within 24 hrs.
How Long Will the O-Shot Last?
Results can last for up to a year before a maintenance treatment is needed but some women experience added benefits from additional treatments. Individual responses vary and some women may be non-responders.
Can the O-Shot be Combined with other Therapies?
Yes, there are several additional therapies that have been shown to help to improve a women’s sexual health. The femiWave, a non-invasive painless therapy, utilizes Low-Intensity Shock Wave Therapy to improve the blood supply and rejuvenate the clitoral and vagina tissues.
Emsella, a non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence also has a beneficial effect on women’s sexual health.
Bio Identical Hormonal therapy, administered either topically or with pellets, is often helpful to revitalize vaginal tissues and improve libido.
