The O Shot has been an official treatment approved by the FDA since 2013. In that time, it’s helped many thousands of women to achieve their goals, including enjoying stronger and more frequent orgasms. It’s still not well known, though: certainly not as well-known as the P-Shot for men. It’s time that changed, and it starts with getting answers about this treatment from Dr. DeGraaff and the professionals here at Advanced Life Clinic in Huntsville,
All About the O-Shot
How Long Does the O-Shot Last?
If a treatment doesn’t last very long, you have to ask if it’s worth the hassle of constantly getting maintenance treatments, but the good news is that this is an enduring treatment. Since this treatment has only been FDA approved for about nine years, we actually don’t know the upper limit of how long it has the potential to last. That said, the evidence we have so far seems to show that most women can expect results that last at least one to three years.
What Is the O-Shot Exactly?
The Orgasm Shot is just the latest application of cutting-edge platelet-rich plasma therapy, which uses the growth and healing factors of your own blood to stimulate cellular renewal and regeneration where it’s applied. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is injected into the vaginal area, where the regenerating growth factors it contains get to work increasing blood flow to the area and promoting healthy cellular turnover.
The result of this injection is the formation of new blood vessels, more collagen, and more sensitive nerves. You can expect the treatment area to be stronger, plumper, more sensitive, and better lubricated. And if you’re worried about pain, don’t be. We put a topical numbing cream on the skin at the injection site to ensure you don’t experience discomfort.
What Should I Expect?
The first step will be a consultation with us, where we’ll discuss your concerns in complete privacy and find out if this treatment is right for you and likely to help you reach your goals. On the day of treatment, the first thing that happens is a simple blood draw, much as you have experienced many times before at a doctor’s office. We will then use a centrifuge to spin your blood separating out the PRP. This is cleaned and processed so what you’re left with is a concentrated formula of regrowth factors taken from your own body and thus safe and natural.
While your blood is being processed, we’ll apply a numbing cream so it has time to take effect. Then we will administer the PRP via injection to a few key areas, and you can leave immediately afterward. You’re free to return to all your normal activities, and many women happily enjoy intercourse on the same day as treatment. In fact, don’t be surprised if you find it more enjoyable right away!
When Will I See Results?
You’ll likely notice the heightened sensation in the area immediately or over the course of a day or two, and that’s usually due to the actual injection of fluid. About three weeks out, you’ll be developing new tissue, and this process will continue for a few more weeks until your final results peak about three months after treatment.
What Can This Treat?
As you can already see, the O Shot can do a lot to improve a woman’s sex life, but that’s not all it treats. Increasing blood flow, tissue development, and collagen in any area of the body tends to improve the skin, muscles, and nerves in ways that can help you with age-related issues. This treatment is helpful to:
- Improve vulva skin texture
- Correct weakness and pain of the pelvic floor
- Improve vaginal lubrication and correct dryness
- Improve stress urinary incontinence issues
- Make intercourse less painful
- Decrease or even reverse chronic vaginal pain
Specific to your sex life, you can expect better natural lubrication, more interest in sex, and stronger orgasms that are easier to achieve. No serious side effects have been reported with this treatment.
Enjoy an Intimate Relationship and Better Confidence
There’s a particular benefit to this treatment that we need to discuss, and it’s not easy for some women to talk about. As we age and life intervenes, many women find they suffer from a low sex drive. This decreased interest in sex, especially if sex has become painful due to aging issues like dryness, can negatively impact a woman’s confidence and even her most intimate of relationships.
This treatment can restore interest in sex via multiple means, and this simple change can make all the difference. It has a ripple effect, allowing you to feel more confident in yourself, more interested in sex again, and thus more interested in your partner in ways that improve the overall health of your relationship.
What’s the Science Behind This Treatment?
The science behind the O-Shot starts with Dr. Charles Runels and his discovery in the 1980s that using PRP could help athletes recover from difficult injuries, particularly to ligaments and joints. A ligament does not have nearly as much blood flow as, say, a muscle, so it takes a lot more time to get the body’s natural regenerative factors to the area. By directly applying those factors to the injured area, Dr. Runels saw much faster and more comprehensive healing.
Since then, PRP has been used in a variety of ways. If there’s an area of the body that can benefit from a healthier rate of cellular repair and growth, PRP can help. In fact, this shot works much the same way as the vampire facial you’ve likely heard about. It’s also widely used to treat certain kinds of hair loss, in recovery from surgery and injury, and in the P-Shot for men.
In What Way Is this Similar to the Vampire Facial?
The vampire facial works by increasing collagen production, and this is also one of the best benefits of the O-Shot. The skin on our bodies needs collagen: even the skin of the vagina. This essential protein makes our skin strong and elastic, and as our natural production of collagen wanes with age, the vaginal tissues tend to become lax, wrinkled, and less responsive to stimulation. The Orgasm Shot can help with all of this.
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 who are in the midst of menopause.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Any woman who wants to experience greater pleasure from sex or correct age-related issues to the vagina is likely a candidate. Even younger adults in their 20s and 30s can enjoy better sex after this treatment. It’s great for those who are suffering pain with sex, who have urinary incontinence, experience skin conditions in the area, struggle to produce enough of their own natural lubrication, or who have never had an orgasm.
If you’re suffering from any of these types of issues, come talk to us. It might seem hard to talk over these private issues, but many women experience all the things we’ve just mentioned. You’re not alone, and we offer a safe, discreet, and private environment for any woman to get the help she needs. There are only a few things that could make you a poor candidate for this treatment, and we’ll go over everything with you when you come to see us.
Will I Need More Than One Shot?
Most women need either one or two shots. In most cases, we find that women do best when they have one shot and then give it time to work. At about eight weeks from your treatment, you’ll have a good idea of whether one shot is right for you. If you’re not yet seeing the results you’re hoping for, a second shot will get you there. We’ll talk about this with you further when you come see us, and we’ll craft a treatment plan that’s personal to your needs and situation.
