Orgasm may become more difficult to achieve as a woman ages, or they may experience less frequent or muted orgasms during intimacy. This can be the result of tissue aging in the vagina, around the O-spot, and around the clitoris, all of which can lead to decreased sexual sensation.
The O-Shot® is a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to helping women have orgasms more easily and more often. Dr Michael Reed provides this treatment to his patients who are sexually healthy and who want to reclaim the sensation and drive of their younger years.
It starts with a simple blood draw. Using an FDA approved kit, platelets are separated and concentrated. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) containing growth factors extracted from your blood is then injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for the sexual response (the “O-spot”). These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection, causing patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure.
How Does The O-Shot Work?
The doctor injects the PRP into an area called the “O-Spot” –a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. The process of injecting triggers the platelets to release several different growth factors that then activate stem cells located in the vagina and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become “younger” with improved function.
Women often enjoy some effects of the O-Shot almost immediately, as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response.
Women who have undergone the O-Shot procedure have reported an increase in their sexual response within days and weeks of the treatment – and for many, the increase is dramatic.
What Can The O-Shot Do For You?
Although each woman’s experience may differ in some ways, many patients report:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina)
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Stronger orgasm
- More frequent orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Increased natural lubrication
- Decreased or resolved urinary incontinence (both urge and stress problems)
Common Questions About the O-Shot
Am I a good candidate for the O-Shot?
In general, women who are sexually healthy but who want to improve their ability to climax and the frequency at which they experience an orgasm are good candidates for the O-Shot.
Does getting the O-Shot hurt?
Getting the O-Shot is, surprisingly, not painful. The blood draw that we perform is a standard draw, no different than most women have experienced many times in their lives. Dr Reed uses a powerful numbing ointment in every area where a woman will receive an injection. Most patients tell us that they don’t even feel the vaginal injections, and they are surprised by how little they feel the injection around the clitoris.
How long will the effects last?
The duration and derived benefits that a patient receives from the O-Shot depends a lot on her body. We find that the more treatment a woman receives in a given area, the healthier the tissue becomes. Repeated treatment over time will help patients learn the duration that they can expect.
