Trouble in Bed: Can the “O-Shot” Rescue Your Orgasm?

Women deserve better sex. But what can the “O-Shot” do about it?

The “O-Shot” or “Orgasm Shot” is a simple, non-surgical injection designed to improve the quality of sex for women. The injection uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to sensitize the vaginal area and alleviate physical dysfunction. 

Across the world, over 10,000 O-Shot procedures have been completed in over 17 countries. The O-Shot has been featured in major publications for its rejuvenating properties. Why do so many women seek out O-Shot for their sexual issues?  

Here are 5 thought-provoking facts about sexual dysfunction and the O-Shot.

1. Female Orgasm Is Less Common Than You Think

Women’s Day magazine says that 1 in 3 women have difficulty reaching orgasm, with 10% unable to reach climax. “The inability to orgasm, is very common-- as high as 43 percent, according to some surveys,” says nurse Lisa Stern in the magazine. A 2011 study found that 8 out of 10 American women fake orgasm during intercourse. Of the participants, 1 in 4 faked their orgasms 90% of the time.  Female sexual dysfunction, including arousal and orgasm, affects millions of women.

2. The O-Shot Affects Sex In Several Ways

The O-Shot enhances the quality of sex through targeted injection. The O-Shot delivers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the clitoris and the “O-Spot” within the vagina. Healthy and responsive tissue is created by growth factors released from the platelets. A majority of women experience increased sensitivity, a stronger sex drive, and consistent arousal from this invigorated tissue. From the increased blood flow and nerve growth, vaginal and clitorial orgasms become more intense and frequent after a single treatment.  

3. The O-Shot Is For More Than Sex

The O-Shot procedure can treat both stress and urge urinary incontinence for 90% of women, while increasing lubrication in the vagina. Many women experience uncomfortable vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence caused by aging, pregnancy, menopause and other medical conditions. Urinary incontinence can affect women of all ages, but the issue is most prevalent among older women. Another benefit of these injections are more youthful and smoother looking vaginal lips.

4. The “Magic” Is In Your Blood

Where does the PRP in an O-Shot injection come from? Your own blood. Studies in the Advances in Skin & Wound Care and Journal of Drugs in Dermatology show that when PRP is injected into the body, stem cells multiply and grow new tissue. In the same way PRP is used to regenerate facial skin, it can regenerates healthy vaginal tissue. Similar treatments are used in sports medicine to treat aid in injury recovery for athletes.  

5. It’s Fast, Painless and Non-Surgical

There’s little pain or discomfort during a 30-60 minute procedure. Injection areas are given topical anesthesia with the clitoris numbed with lidocaine. Using an FDA-approved process, PRP is separated from blood (taken from the arm).  Once PRP is injected into the clitoris and the upper vagina the procedure is complete. Effects of the O-Shot, such as increased arousal, is often felt days after application; with the full effects of the shot developing in 3 weeks. O-Shot benefits may last as long as 2 years.

The O-Shot requires a licensed and certified physician to administer. To find out more about the O-Shot and other advanced Vaginal Rejuvenation techniques, you can contact Dr. Usha Rajagopal in her San Francisco office at (415) 392-3333.
