According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 27% of premenopausal women and over 50% of menopausal women experience symptoms of sexual dysfunction such as vaginal dryness, low libido, or even painful sex.
These uncomfortable symptoms can affect women of all ages, but the O-Shot, also known as the Orgasm Shot, is a quick and virtually painless injection that uses your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to increase your sexual pleasure and confidence.
Dr. Channell draws a sample of your blood and places it in a centrifuge, which separates out the platelets, the components of your blood that contain growth factor proteins. The high concentration of platelets is recombined with your blood plasma to create PRP.
Dr. Channell then applies a numbing cream around the vaginal area to ensure your comfort during the treatment. He injects the PRP solution, and the platelets go to work healing any damaged tissue and stimulating the production of collagen. The treatment also regenerates your vaginal tissue by forming new healthy blood vessels.
The O-Shot is popular among women seeking to enhance their sexual pleasure and experience stronger orgasms. After the treatment, you can also expect greater clitoral stimulation and increased vaginal lubrication. The O-Shot can also help with urinary incontinence.
While some women report an increased libido shortly after the injection, most women can expect to see full results after about three months. The effects can last up to three years, but most women repeat the injection every 12-18 months for maximum results.
Because the O-Shot is a nonsurgical treatment and requires no downtime, you do not have to wait to have sex following the injection. While side effects are uncommon, they may include numbness, redness, or mild swelling for a few days, but these should subside on their own.
