The O-Shot or “Orgasm Shot,” is a simple, nonsurgical, injection-based treatment to help restore sexual function in women, and has been successfully used by thousands of patients worldwide. It was developed in 2011 by the same physician who also developed the P-Shot for erectile dysfunction, Dr. Charles Runels MD.
How does the O-Shot work?
The treatment is typically given to women experiencing sexual dysfunction such as difficulty achieving orgasm, or who experience pain during sex (Dysareunia.) The O-Shot procedure uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which is derived from the patient’s own blood. PRP is a concentration of platelets that are rich in growth factors and cytokines and can help promote blood flow, tissue regeneration and healing.
How soon can you have sex after the O-Shot?
There is no definitive answer to this question as everyone experiences the O-Shot differently. We sometimes recommend avoiding sexual activity for a few days after the procedure to allow the tissue to heal. Many women report feeling an increase in sensitivity and lubrication within 24 hours of receiving the injection, so for some this may mean that they are able to have sex soon after the procedure. Although it is important to remember that everyone’s body heals at different rates. So it’s best to listen to your body and wait until you are completely comfortable before engaging in sexual activity.
Does the O-Shot really work?
In a recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, 85% of women who received the O-Shot reported an improvement in their sexual function. Other studies have also found similar results, with 60% or more of women reporting an improvement in sexual function after receiving the treatment. It’s also important to note that the success rates for other common treatments, such as prescription medication, are typically much lower.
Am I a candidate for the O-Shot?
The O-Shot is performed by our licensed physician who has completed the necessary training under the inventor of the procedure. During your consultation, we will review your medical history and discuss your goals for the procedure in order to determine whether or not you are a candidate for the O-Shot.
