Even in a time when discussions of sexuality have become more widely accepted, women still hesitate to broach this personal subject. Instead, they live with symptoms like poor lubrication, difficulty reaching orgasm, and low sex drive. But at Soza Clinic in Richardson, TX, we encourage you to speak up, especially because the O-Shot can provide relief from these symptoms and transform your sexual well-being.
What Can You Expect From an O Shot?
We could answer this question in a number of different ways: increased lubrication, greater sexual arousal, and stronger and more frequent orgasms. But even this multi-faceted answer doesn’t encompass all the benefits this treatment offers.
The decision to have the O-Shot is about more than symptom relief. It’s about enjoying a fulfilling life born of increased intimacy with your partner and greater confidence in your body. What you can therefore expect is a turn from thinking something is wrong with your body to feeling sexy, strong, and self-assured.
What Exactly Is This Treatment?
For some patients, it’s a revolution, but scientifically speaking, it’s a non-surgical therapy that rejuvenates vaginal tissues. We use your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), derived from a simple blood draw, and inject it into the vaginal area. This immediately activates local stem cells to remodel vaginal tissues for improved strength and function. Ultimately, women experience orgasms with increased frequency and intensity.
You might be wondering how such a treatment came into being. Dr. Charles Runels is the mind behind the Orgasm Shot and developed it in response to the more than 40% of American women who suffer from sexual dysfunction. For years, men have had their choice of treatments for correcting sexual problems, from penile implants to oral medications. But women have had very limited options, primarily messy lubricants, that work only temporarily.
How It Works
The driving force behind the treatment is the PRP we obtain from your own blood. Plasma is a yellowish liquid comprised of nearly all water; its job is to help blood flow smoothly throughout the body and keep your blood pressure stabilized. It also carries proteins in the blood vital to supporting immune functions and blood clotting.
Platelets, meanwhile, are cells contained within the blood that stop bleeding. They’re also packed with growth and healing factors to initiate tissue repair. Finally, they attract localized stem cells, from which all other cells with specialized functions are created. We use PRP to provide the body with a higher concentration of platelets to, in turn, intensify the body’s natural healing processes.
All the Details
We get the PRP we need by placing a small amount of your blood into a centrifuge. This separates the platelets and plasma from other blood cells so we can inject them into your vaginal tissues. Before we go further, let’s focus for a moment on how the vagina changes with time. Just like other body parts start to sag and droop, vaginal tissues also lose tone and volume.
Hormonal changes can also lead to a lack of interest in sexual intercourse, vaginal dryness, and even painful sex. For other women, times of intimacy produce no sensation at all, certainly not pleasure, and become moments they dread rather than enjoy. And this is a cycle in which a lack of desire and vaginal dryness feed into each other so that as one amplifies, so does the other.
PRP and Vaginal Rejuvenation
Before you know it, you’re avoiding sex altogether, which can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. This is where PRP can be extremely beneficial. Platelets are responsible for aiding the healing process and constructing new tissues. Applying this treatment to the vagina – including near the G-spot, urethra, and clitoris – can lead to the formation of:
- Healthy, supple tissues
- Improved nerve responses
- Increased blood flow
- Enhanced natural lubrication
Treatments take less than one hour to complete and are virtually painless. We start by applying an anesthetic cream in and around the vagina. We’ll also ask questions about your sensitivity level in these areas to understand your individual anatomy; treatment isn’t intended to be a one-size-fits-all approach. Once you’re ready, and the PRP is prepared, we’ll use a very fine needle to make strategic injections.
What to Expect
Now is a good time to mention the Orgasm Shot does not pose side effects. In addition, some women report immediate improvements because of the volumizing effect treatment produces. But the real payoff shows in the coming months as PRP stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, collagen, and stem cells. You can think of it as fertilizer to replenish and revitalize tissues.
Why do the benefits of treatment take time to develop? Because we’re relying on your body’s natural processes to create new tissues, and this process doesn’t happen overnight. The good news, however, is that improvements will build upon each other in a way that may start with increased sexual desire, followed by heightened sensation, greater pleasure, and then lead into benefits like improved bladder control (we’ll discuss this more in a moment).
Most patients only need one treatment to correct their vaginal issues. Results typically last between 14 and 18 months, with most women choosing to repeat therapy every 16 to 18 months. Although not a permanent solution, the O-Shot is a way to gently and naturally create more functional tissues in those areas responsible for sexual stimulation.
What are those areas? We touched on them a moment ago, but here we’ll address each in greater detail, starting with the G-spot. This elusive, mysterious spot is said to give women extra pleasure when stimulated during intercourse. But a few problems stand in the way:
- It’s hard to reach (find)
- Most women don’t know where it’s located
- Different women like to be stimulated in different ways
Enhancing Your Sexual Pleasure
The first two points can be eased with the O-Shot. A study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that PRP can increase collagen formation in the vagina’s anterior wall, precisely where the G-spot is located.
By nourishing this locale’s surrounding tissues, treatment essentially makes the G-spot easier to find and therefore easier to stimulate. And science confirms both points; after treatment, female patients who participated in the NIH study reported a much higher degree of sexual satisfaction.
Other Areas We Can Treat
The clitoris is known as the most sensitive part of a woman’s body. With treatment, we can increase blood flow to this organ to further improve sexual function. PRP is also proven to increase connective tissues, an effect that can enlarge the clitoris and bring it closer to the vaginal wall for improved orgasms.
Likewise, we can also target the area of the Skene’s glands to improve sexual arousal, lubrication, and response. Studies confirm these glands secrete fluids when they become stimulated, such as during arousal, to improve the overall sexual experience for women.
And, last but not least, treating vaginal walls helps strengthen these tissues to alleviate the pain that sometimes accompanies sex. In total, the positive effects of treatment can include:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Overall increased sensation
- Younger and smoother skin of the vulva
- Ability to reach orgasm from sex when previously unable
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- Improved lubrication
- Greater ability to have a vaginal orgasm
This frustrating concern faces many women after childbirth or simply with age. Few women talk about it because they’re embarrassed and believe it has to be accepted. But that’s not true. First, we need to understand the underlying cause of urinary incontinence, which is a weakness of pelvic floor muscles. These control the flow of urine, and as their integrity is compromised, many women experience leaks when they cough, laugh, or even sneeze.
PRP can restore urine control by tightening vaginal tissues and encouraging collagen synthesis. This sounds simple, and it is. But it’s also a highly effective way to stop leakage. And we can administer treatment for incontinence at the same time we treat your other concerns, including vaginal laxity and dryness.
When Healing Begins
Around the four-week mark, you should begin to notice significant improvements in your bladder control. This is the point at which tissue elasticity and tone both improve. You’ll additionally notice a tighter vagina internally, which comes as a relief to many women who feared the passing of youth also meant a loss of vaginal strength.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some women want to move forward with treatment but don’t because they fear pain. We want to reiterate the O-Shot causes no pain – you’ll feel nothing more than a slight, warm pinch. Equally important, you don’t have to endure any recovery period. Many women even choose to have intercourse after treatment because they feel, for the first time in a long time, “in the mood.”
Can I Have More Than One Shot?
We generally recommend you wait eight weeks after treatment before choosing to have a second round. This gives you time to realize the full effects of your first treatment. But, if this timeframe passes and you feel further rejuvenation could be beneficial, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can develop a new treatment plan to deliver the results you seek.
Do All Women Experience Treatment the Same Way?
In a word, no. Results vary depending on your starting point, and additional factors like age and hormonal levels can also influence results. You will likely notice significant improvements, but don’t think of this shot as a “magic stick.” Instead, consider it a way to improve upon what you already have.
Do I Need to Do Anything After Treatment?
Although no recovery is involved with this shot, you can choose to use a pelvic floor muscle stimulation device to further strengthen your muscles. These are easy to use, require only a few minutes of time, and can improve your treatment results. If you have questions, ask our office.
How Do I Know If I’m a Candidate for This Shot?
If you suffer from any of the symptoms we’ve discussed here – including pain during or after sex, difficulty achieving orgasm, or urinary incontinence – this shot may be able to help. It’s safe and well-tolerated by most women, and we’ll determine during your consultation if it’s right for you.
The Path to Pleasure
The Orgasm Shot is designed specifically for women to correct the uncomfortable and often embarrassing symptoms of sexual dysfunction.
