There is now a non-surgical way to rejuvenate your vagina, increase sexual pleasure and reduce stress urinary incontinence. The O-Shot, short for Orgasm Shot, has shown promising results.
How Does the O-Shot Work?
Your OBGYN will draw blood from your arm and run it through a special centrifuge to produce platelet rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is then injected into vaginal tissues, such as the anterior vaginal wall and clitoris. PRP has cell regenerating qualities that can trigger increased blood flow, new cell growth and greater sensitivity.
The Orgasm Shot Procedure
Your OBGYN will begin with reviewing your medical history to determine if you are a candidate to receive the O-Shot. Then, you will be asked to sign a consent form. After drawing blood and spinning it down to produce PRP, your OBGYN will apply a topical numbing ointment. You may feel a slight pinch from the injection. The entire procedure generally takes less than an hour.
After Receiving the O-Shot
There is no post-procedure recovery from the Orgasm Shot. Your OBGYN may recommend you use an intensity device daily for a couple of weeks following the O-Shot to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
Typically, the effects of the O-Shot last up to 18 months, and a second O-Shot may be administered after three months. There is no limit to the number of injections you may receive, but your OBGYN will evaluate the risks and benefits.
Risks Associated with the O-Shot
The O-Shot is not administered by the FDA, since it is not a drug.It was introduced in 2010 as an elective procedure. While it has only been available for a short period of time, there have not been any significant side effects reported. You may experience some mild soreness for a few days following the injection. The O-Shot is not for women who are pregnant or lactating.
Urinary Incontinence and the O-Shot
The O-Shot induces collagen and elastin production- which bulks your vaginal wall and can decrease urinary incontinence. Many women suffering from mild stress or urge incontinence have reported partial or complete resolution of the problem when combined with pelvic floor strengthening.
If you have questions about the O-Shot, or Orgasm Shot, contact your OBGYN.
