What is O shot?
The O-Shot (also known as the Orgasm Shot or G spot shot) is a nonsurgical treatment that uses a patient’s own blood-derived platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to theoretically stimulate the growth of new cells and promote the formation of better blood supply in the vaginal walls and clitoris.
The growth-factor-rich platelets, which the body utilizes to naturally generate new tissue, increase not only the number of cells but sensitivity to vaginal and clitoral stimulation (mainly by improving cell functioning and boosting blood flow to the area).
What is it used for?
The O-Shot was created by Dr. Charles Runels in Fairhope, Alabama,” DeLucia wrote to Healthline in an email. His original studies showed that there was a significant improvement in the female sexual function index. This is a questionnaire that is handed out to patients and they are able to answer it before and after the procedure. In addition to clinical trial there are several anecdotal reports of the procedure being very effective.”
Runels, DeLucia, and other healthcare providers who offer the O-Shot claim it improves vaginal sensation, sexual function, and a lot more.
Some supposed benefits include:
- increased sexual desire
- increased arousal
- increased lubrication
- a heightened orgasm during sex or masturbation
Incontinence and other conditions
- ease urinary incontinence
- treat lichen sclerosus
- treat lichen planus
- treat chronic pain from childbirth and mesh, as well as interstitial cystitis
Women claim the treatment has improved their orgasm experience greatly and has even helped treat incontinence.
How do you prepare for the procedure?
The medical professional will start out by asking you general questions about your health, so have information about your sexual and general health history on hand.
What to expect during an O-Shot
If you check out as healthy, your O-Shot provider will, in the following order:
- Ask you to remove your pants and underwear.
- Apply numbing cream to your clit, labia, and/or G-spot.
- Draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma (liquid) from the platelets (the tissue that will be injected into your vagina).
- Inject local anesthetic to your clit, labia and/or G-spot.
- Inject your platelets into your clit, labia and/or G-spot.
After this, you’re all done and ready to get dressed and leave the clinic. In all, the procedure should take about 30 minutes.
What to expect during recovery
Recovery from the O-Shot is very quick. You may experience a small amount of local sensitivity for a day or two. That is all. You may even have intercourse the same day as treatment.
Go over recovery expectations with your provider both before and after the procedure.
When should you see the results?
I like to describe the results as three different time frames. Within the first 3 to 7 days, you will experience heightened sensation in the area treated due to the actual fluid injection,” says DeLucia.
“At approximately 3 weeks new tissue will begin to develop and will continue for the next 9 weeks, which then at 3 months will reach its peak development,” she says. “These results will last out to at least a year.”
Again, there’s no scientific research on when results start and how long the results of the O-Shot last, so evidence is anecdotal based on experience.
