O-Shot is a minimally invasive procedure that helps stimulate vaginal tissue generation and collagen production to relieve urinary continence and female sexual dysfunction.
Who is a good candidate?
You may be a good candidate if you have one or more of the following sexual concerns: Vaginal dryness, Urinary incontinence, Lack of sexual desire, Inability to become aroused, or orgasm
Pain during intercourse.
How is the treatment done?
The treatment starts by drawing a small amount of one’s blood to extract the PRP (platelet-rich plasma). The PRP is then injected directly into the vaginal area. The platelets release growth factors that help generate tissue to increase stimulation and sensitivity. 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 office. In all, the procedure should take about 30 minutes.
What are the benefits of O-Shot treatments?
This extremely safe treatment helps relieve pain and discomfort during intercourse, gain control of urinary leakage, increase clitoral sensitivity and arousal, smoother and younger skin texture of the vulva, tighter vaginal opening, increase natural lubrication, increase arousal from g-spot stimulation, and achieve more intense and more frequent orgasm during intercourse
What are the possible side effects?
The area injected might be sensitive for a few days, especially during the first void. Other than potential allergic reaction to local anesthesia given for pain control, there have not been any long term side effects noted.

There is no downtime. You may resume sexual intercourse the same night.
Is there any discomfort during and after the treatment?
Discomfort is very minimal if any during the O-shot treatment, especially in the hands of experienced providers familiar with the female genital system.

Over the counter pain medication can be taken to minimize any discomfort, although most patients do not even require such medication.
When do you see the results and how long does the results last?
Although some people start noticing results after a few weeks, most will notice its maximum benefit after 3 full months. Most people continue to note improvement at one year, but individual results vary. It is advised to repeat the O-shot yearly to maintain the health and function of the vaginal tissue.
