Here's What to Expect After Your O-Shot® Treatment
As we age, a decrease in libido, sexual satisfaction, and incontinence can become stubborn issues. Now, there’s a nonsurgical injection called the Orgasm (or “O”) Shot designed to treat sexual dysfunction and incontinence in women. It may be able to help increase sexual arousal, allowing patients to have more frequent orgasms and improved vaginal lubrication.
At Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa in Temecula, CA, medical aesthetics specialist Dr. Gloria Tumbaga can talk you through your options regarding the O-Shot and help you decide if it’s right for you.
Below, we’ll look at how this vaginal shot aims to help improve stimulation, vaginal sensitivity, and sex drive, as well as treat stress and urge incontinence.
What is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot is not an injection of a foreign substance. Instead, the procedure involves taking your own blood (from the arm) and placing it in a centrifuge to collect platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Because blood platelets contain healing growth factors, they may be able to help rebuild tissue, create new blood vessels and new nerves in the vaginal area, and increase blood circulation.
The growth factors in the O-Shot are set to work to rebuild your tissue and increase circulation, which means you can benefit from increased sensitivity and responsiveness. With renewed vaginal health, your libido typically follows suit.
The O-Shot is injected into the G-spot, labia, and clitoris. While the procedure may sound intimidating, it is made more comfortable by the use of a numbing injection and takes roughly 30 minutes.
You can return to your daily routine almost immediately after your vaginal shot. Patients near Menifee, CA, Murrieta, CA, or San Diego, CA are able to return to sexual intercourse within 1 – 2 days.
What are the benefits of the O-Shot?
Because sexual issues are so personal, there’s no guarantee the injection will be successful in all cases. However, it is designed to provide patients with the following benefits:
Increased sexual desire
Increased arousal and vaginal lubrication
Less painful sex
More intense orgasms
A reduction in symptoms of incontinence
A decrease in pain from an episiotomy
What can I expect after the O-Shot?
Following treatment, there can be mild side effects, including redness, swelling, and numbness. However, these typically subside within a week. Vaginal swelling may result in an irregular urine stream. Some of these side effects are associated with PRP treatment, regardless of where it takes place in the body.
Results can be immediate, but typically you can expect to feel heightened arousal and sexual sensations after 3 – 7 days. Full results may take three months.
If the O-Shot procedure works for you, the results can last from 1 – 2 years. After that, you can schedule a follow-up with Dr. Tumbaga to maintain your results.
If you are pregnant, nursing, or have an infection, you will need to postpone this vaginal shot.
