It’s been an official treatment since 2013, but the O-Shot is just as innovative today as when first released. This injection can achieve many goals, including helping you enjoy stronger and more frequent orgasms. But because of its nature, it also tends to prompt a number of questions – chiefly whether or not it works. At Anazao MD in Steamboat Springs, CO, we have answers to all your queries and are happy to explain this life-changing therapy in greater detail.
How Effective Is the O-Shot?
It will come as a surprise to no one that over time, your sex drive wanes. Women are, sadly, two to three times more likely to experience this than men are. The O-Shot is intended to address this and leave you feeling hot and bothered in the best way possible.
But does it work? Studies show that between 75 and 95% of women enjoy sexual function improvements soon after treatment. Some feel a noticeable change almost immediately, while others report increased sexual arousal and orgasm intensity within days of treatment. The shot’s full effects are most likely to develop after three months, at which time you should be prepared – its effects can completely change your sexual health.
What Is This Treatment?
Also referred to as the Orgasm Shot, this therapy uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) harnessed from your very own blood. The PRP contains cell regenerating growth factors. Once injected into specific areas, such as the vagina, growth factors trigger stem cells that promote healthy tissue growth and increase blood flow in the area.
You might be wondering at this point if the treatment hurts, and we’re happy to say it does not. A topical numbing agent is placed over the injection sites – namely, the vagina and clitoris – to eliminate any potential for discomfort. The PRP is then injected directly inside the vagina and into the clitoris. We do this to encourage the formation of new nerves, blood vessels, and collagen. In turn, the injections sites become:
- More sensitive
What To Expect
Before treatment, you’ll undergo a simple blood draw just as you might at your doctor’s office. A member of our team will then spin, clean, and process your blood to obtain the PRP. How is blood different from PRP? We’re simply separating the platelets out to obtain a more concentrated formula. This is done while you wait in-office, and we then perform the injections.
The shot does not pose any downtime, meaning you’re free to continue with your daily activities immediately following your session. You can even have intercourse on the same day. Don’t be surprised if you have a far more enjoyable experience – as mentioned earlier, some effects of treatment are immediately felt by patients.
A Multi-Faceted Treatment
While many women comment on the benefits to their sex lives, the Orgasm Shot can treat a range of age-related symptoms. To illustrate, it’s proven to:
- Correct vaginal dryness
- Improve vaginal lubrication
- Increase ability to experience a G-spot orgasm
- Improve skin on the vulva
- Address stress urinary incontinence
- Correct weakness or pain in the pelvic floor
- Reverse chronic vaginal pain from childbirth or transvaginal mesh
- Relieve sexual dysfunction or painful intercourse
After treatment, you can expect better natural lubrication, improved sexual desire, and the ability to climax more often. Stronger, longer-lasting orgasms can also be accomplished. We may recommend a series of two shots to achieve maximum sexual benefits. And as a side note, no side effects have been reported with this treatment. Results can last between one to four years, and as results wane, many patients opt for a simple re-treatment.
Amplify Your Confidence and Build a Better Relationship
Many women suffering from low sex drive note their relationships suffer as well. But as the effects of the injection take hold, and a sense of passion is reginited, they enjoy better sex lives as well as increased confidence. This can come from the power of better orgasms, both in quantity and quality, and a renewed closeness to your partner. What seems like a simple injection can be a dramatic treatment with a ripple effect into everything you do.
The Science Behind the Shot
To speak plainly, the O-Shot plumps and regenerates vaginal tissues to make them more sensitive. But the science behind these vaginal injections is more complex than you probably realize.
To begin, this shot is similar to the vampire facial you’ve likely heard so much about, which also incorporates PRP. PRP treatments can be traced as far back as the 1980s, when Dr. Charles Runels started providing them to athletes with ligament and muscle injuries. He found the treatments reduced healing time by at least 50% – even for major injuries. From this discovery came the vampire facial, recognized for plumping tissues and restoring a soft, radiant glow.
Similar to the Results of a Facial
The vampire facial works – as you likely guessed – by ramping up collagen production. The O-Shot has the same effect on the vagina. You might be thinking the vagina doesn’t need collagen, but our bodies tell us otherwise. This protein is necessary for strong, elastic vaginal walls that contract and tighten as expected. In other words, vaginal tissues rely on collagen for their support.
By injecting PRP into vaginal tissues, we’re able to restore and strengthen muscles and tissues. This is how it helps solve problems with dryness, incontinence, and a lack of sensitivity. The Orgasm Shot can also eliminate the need for messy and inconvenient topical ointments and restore a sense of spontaneity to intercourse.
The Safety of Injectables
One of the greatest benefits of the Orgasm Shot is the use of your own plasma to regenerate tissues. This means no filler, no irritating creams, and no chemicals. It’s a natural treatment that works with, rather than against, your body. The Orgasm Shot is also non-surgical and completely safe – even for women who have given birth, undergone cancer treatments, or are in the midst of menopause.
Exploring Your Candidacy
If you would like to experience greater sexual pleasure, you’re likely a great candidate for the O-Shot. It doesn’t matter what stage of life you’re in (including young adults in their 20s and 30s). This treatment can help women who:
- Feel pain during sex
- Have never had an orgasm
- Cannot produce their own natural lubrication
- Have vulvar skin conditions
- Experience urinary incontinence
The key is in having that difficult first conversation with your doctor. But don’t think of it as difficult – many women experience the issues we just mentioned, meaning you’re not alone. Neither do you have to live with these painful, uncomfortable, and disruptive changes to your body. And even if you don’t fall into one of the categories above, the shot can still deliver benefits. For instance, if you simply want to ramp up your sex life, treatment may be right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some women wonder if the Orgasm Shot is complicated, and although the way it works is complex, the treatment itself is not. From the routine blood draw to quick and straightforward injections, the Orgasm Shot is quite simple to administer.
Many patients also ask how long the treatment takes. From start to finish, you can expect your session to take about an hour. This includes the blood draw and numbing process. Don’t worry – we move as quickly as possible so you can get back to your day.
Is More Than One Shot Necessary?
It’s generally a good idea to have one Orgasm Shot and then let your results develop. Eight weeks is an ideal window – if you feel you need a second shot at this milestone, we can schedule another session to ensure the treatment’s full effects are felt. We’ll discuss this in further detail during your consultation, at which time we’ll craft a complete treatment plan for you.
Does the Orgasm Shot Replace the Need for Lubrication?
Because this treatment increases sensation and ramps up your own sexual desire, it’s very probable you will no longer need supplemental lubrication. This is one of the products we mentioned earlier that is messy and inconvenient. Keep in mind, however, results from treatment will depend on the severity of your vaginal dryness. This means the decision to continue using lubrication will ultimately be yours to make.
Take Control of Your Own Sexual Health
The Orgasm Shot allows you to take control of your own sexual health. With a simple and painless treatment, you can feel closer to your partner, improve sexual pleasure, and even reduce or altogether eliminate stress urinary incontinence.
