The O-Shot®: A Treatment for Increased Sexual Response and Incontinence

Many women want to be able to bond with their partners through sexual intimacy. However, problems such as pain during intercourse, vaginal dryness, stress incontinence, and the inability to achieve orgasm can make this bonding difficult. For many years, women did not have many options for solving problems with painful intercourse and lack of clitoral sensitivity. Many people even chose to put up with these symptoms rather than seek help because of the limited options. But with the discovery and subsequent use of PLP therapies, women have been given a new option: the O-Shot®. 


At Radiant Divine Medical Spa, we are a certified O-Shot provider. We help many women regain their sex lives, reduce pain during intercourse, and help stimulate the tissue in the vagina, labia, and clitoris. This fast and painless procedure can address many of your concerns without drugs or surgery.


What Is The O-Shot? 


The O-Shot, or the Orgasm Shot, is an injection of PRP or platelet-rich plasma next to the clitoris and on the front of the vaginal wall. The intent of the treatment is to help stimulate the rejuvenation of the tissues in the area. 


What Is the Science Behind the O-Shot? 


Platelet-rich plasma is a substance that is taken from the patient’s own blood. The blood is placed into an FDA-approved device called a centrifuge which spins the blood and separates the components. After the blood is spun in the centrifuge, the red blood cells sink to the bottom and the plasma, which is a gold color, rises to the top. This is what is taken and injected into the body. PRP has already been widely used in a variety of medical settings from wound care to helping athletes recover from injury. 


With the O-Shot, the PRP is used to stimulate stem cells in the area and encourage new growth. It can also increase blood flow to the area and cause it to become more sensitive to stimulation. 


What Can the O-Shot Help Treat? 


Urinary Incontinence


The O-Shot may help women with their urinary urge incontinence and stress incontinence. Urge incontinence is when you suddenly feel the need to urinate and involuntarily lose urine. It can come with the frequent need to urinate. Stress incontinence is often experienced by older women or women after childbirth. It is the loss of urine when laughing, coughing, or exercising. An injection of PRP into the vaginal wall may help to restore the tissue and nerves and decrease urinary incontinence. 


Vaginal Dryness


The O-Shot can also help your body to naturally produce more vaginal lubrication. Vaginal dryness is common during menopause when estrogen levels are lower or during other times of hormone change such as during breastfeeding. Vaginal dryness can cause intercourse to be painful even while using lubrication. Schedule a consultation with us to determine if the O-Shot is a good option for your symptoms. 


Female Orgasmic Dysfunction 


Female Orgasmic Dysfunction is a term that is used to describe the inability of a woman to reach orgasm, even when aroused. This can be distressing for a woman and have a negative impact on her relationship with her partner and on the way she feels about herself. 


Studies show that 10% or more of women have never experienced an orgasm, and many more experience infrequent orgasms. There are many factors that can contribute to problems in the bedroom including medical and phycological reasons, so it’s always important to have a consultation with us to determine if the O-shot could help in your situation. 


What Are the Benefits of the O-Shot? 


It Does Not Require Surgery


The O-Shot is a non-surgical treatment that takes 45 minutes to complete. After the treatment, there is no downtime or scarring. 


It Is Drug-Free


Besides an optional topical numbing cream during the procedure, The O-Shot is drug-free. The PRP is taken from your own body so there is no risk of a bad reaction. No serious side effects from the treatment have been reported from PRP treatments, but you can always talk to your doctor to discuss any concerns that you may have.  


You Can Return to Sexual Intercourse the Same Day


While it may take a few days or weeks to begin seeing results from your treatment, you can resume sexual intimacy on the same day as your treatment. Most providers recommend waiting 4 hours to allow the injection area time to heal.


Why You Should Talk to Your Doctor About Sexual Problems


Many women feel uncomfortable talking to their doctor about sexual problems such as the inability to orgasm or low sexual desire. In fact, the majority of women have never even discussed it once with their doctor. While much of the blame is on doctors who do not take the lead with discussions about sexual satisfaction, the availability of the O-Shot can help to increase these conversations. If you have trouble achieving an orgasm, you have pain during sex, or even if you have never had an orgasm, there are options for you. 


Why You Should Seek a Certified O-Shot Provider


Because the O-Shot is a precise treatment, it should only be done by a provider who is a certified member of the Cellular Medicine Association and has been through the proper training on the procedure. We are proud to belong to this directory of providers.
