If you’re experiencing sexual dysfunction, there’s a medical treatment you can try that’s gained popularity over the past several years called the O-Shot. It uses your own blood to help improve your ability to achieve quality orgasms.
What is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot is a vaginal platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. The O-Shot involves injecting platelets into your clitoris, G spot, and/or labia. Platelet-rich plasma is a component of your blood. It contains growth factors and proteins that stimulate cell growth, healing, and rejuvenation, and has been used for years to speed the healing of wounds and injuries.
PRP helps create new nerves and blood vessels in virtually anywhere it’s injected, including the vagina. This helps encourage healthy tissue growth, tightening, and increased sensation due to the gradual development of new nerve endings.
The platelets seem to have restorative qualities to them and release up to 35 various healing substances when injected into an area of the body.
Who Created the O-Shot?
Dr. Charles Runels created the O Shot. He conducted various studies showing female sexual function improvement from the shot. One study involving 11 women participants showed that seven of the women experienced improvement in their sex lives following this treatment.
Benefits of the O-Shot
Some benefits of the O-Shot might include:
- Increased arousal
- Increased sexual desire
- Heightened orgasm
- Increased lubrication
- Ease of certain conditions (i.e. urinary incontinence, lichen planus)
How the O-Shot Process Works
You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Cela Doppelt to learn more about the benefits and side effects of the O-Shot. She’ll begin by asking you about your medical and sexual health. Then she’ll provide you with the O-Shot, if she feels you are a good candidate for the procedure.
First, Dr. Doppelt will use a numbing cream to numb your clitoris, G-spot and labia. Then she draws your blood and separates the plasma from your platelets by spinning your sample in a centrifuge. Once that’s complete, you’ll receive painless injections of a local anesthetic and the platelet-rich plasma.
You should experience the results in three different phases.
- You’ll experience heightened sensation within your first three to seven days in the treated area.
- You’ll have new tissue developing within around three weeks of the injection which will continue for another nine weeks.
- This tissue will reach peak development in approximately three months.
You should experience these results for a minimum of one year.
If you decide you would like to try the O-Shot, be sure you follow all aftercare instructions provided to you by Dr. Doppelt. You’ll also want to contact us right away if you start experiencing negative effects like severe swelling and/or redness, fever, bleeding, or pus, as these indicate adverse reaction or infection.
There’s generally a quick recovery from the O Shot. You might experience a little local sensitivity for a couple of days, but that should be it. You might even be able to have intercourse the same day you receive the treatment. Dr. Doppelt will provide you with specific recovery expectations before and after the treatment.
