Everything You Need to Know about the Groundbreaking O-Shot®

Because it’s a topic many women are hesitant to discuss, you might think you’re alone in experiencing painful sex either post-pregnancy or as you approach menopause. However, research reveals that sexual dysfunction is common, affecting 43% of women in the United States. If you regularly experience low sexual desire, difficulty achieving orgasm, or a lack of sufficient lubrication, the groundbreaking O-Shot® may help rejuvenate your intimate life. 

At Ego medical spa in Modesto, California, our medical professionals, treat sexual concerns holistically and as naturally as possible. That’s why we proudly offer the O-Shot, or Orgasm Shot® to help you reclaim your sex life. For some women, the O-Shot helps improve symptoms of mild urinary incontinence, too. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the revolutionary O-Shot to help decide if it may be right for you.

Potential causes of female sexual problems

Sexual issues occur for a variety of different reasons in a woman’s life. For example, you may have a lower libido when your hormones fluctuate after pregnancy, and as you’re going through menopause. Both age and hormone fluctuations may lead to decreased vaginal lubrication, so sex becomes uncomfortable or even painful. 

Medical conditions and chronic illnesses can lead to problems with sexual function, and stress, depression, and your emotional health may be contributing factors. You might find yourself unable to become aroused, unable to orgasm or feel less sensation in your vagina than when you were younger or healthier.

Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer through these issues and simply “endure” sex with your partner. The O-Shot is an innovative way to improve your sex life with the use of your body’s own proteins and growth factors. Here’s how it works. 

The role of platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma is a form of regenerative medicine that has been used to treat injuries in athletes, to improve orthopedic conditions, and to treat joint diseases such as osteoarthritis. PRP contains proteins and growth factors that are essential in helping you heal after you scrape your knee or cut your finger. When we take a small sample of blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood components, we get a concentrated solution of PRP that contains up to five times more growth factors than what’s found in your normal blood. 

That’s the first part of the O-Shot procedure. Next, we numb every area of your vagina that’s going to receive the PRP so you don’t feel any pain. Based on your consultation and how we determine you can most benefit from the O-Shot, we then inject the PRP into your vagina, clitoris, labia, and/or G-spot, depending on your individual needs. 

The whole process takes only about 30 minutes, and you’re free to resume your daily activities afterward. You may even be able to have sex later that same day. 

The many benefits of the O-Shot

In addition to the O-Shot is a fairly simple, easy, in-office procedure, there are many other amazing benefits that you may experience after receiving it, including:

Some effects are noticeable very quickly, with heightened sensation in the treated areas within the first 37 days after receiving the O-Shot. Over the next few weeks, new, rejuvenated tissue develops and continues to replenish itself for about nine weeks. By three months, you should be enjoying all the benefits of the O-Shot, and results can last up to a year or longer. 

There’s no need to feel embarrassed about these very real and common sexual health concerns. Our medical professionals make it easy for you to speak to her about all your concerns and have extensive experience treating women and men to improve their sexual health.
