Is sex not what it used to be? Are you having trouble with orgasms or no longer enjoy sex? Or is sex just painful now? For women who think this is just them, they are not alone. Female sexual dysfunction is more common than most people realize, affecting up to 25% of women. There is a long list of reasons why this can occur including aging, hormonal changes, medical problems, psychiatric problems, and relationship issues. These can all lead to problems with arousal and lubrication, or even painful sex, a condition known as dyspareunia. There are no FDA-approved treatments for women with sexual arousal difficulties, like Viagra for men. The Orgasm Shot is now an option for women.
O Shot, also known as the Orgasm Shot, is a non-surgical treatment that treats sexual dysfunction in women by stimulating both the clitoris and vagina with PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the patient's blood and is full of growth factors and the goal is to stimulate the growth of new cells and make the injected areas more sensitive.
The O Shot at Jandali Plastic Surgery in Connecticut can help:
Dr. Jandali and his physician assistants have undergone special training by Dr. Runels, the inventor of the Vampire FaceLift ® and the O-Shot ®. Both of these procedures use the power of the patient’s own blood and stem cells to release growth factors to stimulate rejuvenation.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) platelet growth factors are released for up to seven days, supporting collagen production and increased vascularization, which results in overall skin improvements.
The PRP is injected into two areas: clitoris and vagina.
Clitoris: The first area is just to the side of the clitoris and the PRP spreads under the skin to have effects on the entire clitoris, most of which is buried under the skin but plays an important part in sexual stimulation and clitoral orgasms.
Vagina: The second area is just within the vagina, along the front side. PRP injected in this area stimulates some of the glands that lubricate the vagina. The PRP also spreads to the G spot, which is responsible for vaginal orgasms.
The entire O Shot treatment takes about 30-40 minutes to draw the patient’s blood, numb the area, and perform the PRP injection.
The O Shot is quick with minimal pain. We use a strong topical numbing medication before we then inject some lidocaine under the clitoris. An ice pack is then used on the clitoris just before the PRP is injected.
There is minimal recovery or limitations after the O Shot. The clitoral and labial area can be numb for a few hours after treatment from the lidocaine. Expect mild inflammation, redness, and swelling for a few days. Bruising may last a couple of weeks. You can resume normal physical activity and exercise the day after the treatment. We advise patients to avoid manipulating or pressing on the treated area for 48 hours. We also ask that patients wait 48 hours after treatment to resume sexual activity or use tampons. There are no restrictions on showering, bathing, or swimming.
The effects from the O Shot lasts between 1 year and 18 months, but varies from patient to patient.
The O shot is very safe since it contains no chemicals, medications, or synthetic substances, just your body’s own plasma and growth factors in a concentrated injection. The most common side effects are mild swelling and bruising.
We use the Selphyl® System for PRP preparation and activation. This system is designed for the safe preparation of Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) from a small sample of blood. Selphyl removes virtually all contaminating cells. PRP is converted to PRFM, creating a scaffold that serves to protect and preserve platelets so their release of growth factors is sustained where it is injected.
