The O-Shot: All Your Questions Answered

With about 80 percent of women reporting they have faked orgasm during intercourse at one point, it is about time for women’s sexual health and pleasure to be given thorough consideration. One increasingly popular solution to issues such as vaginal dryness and lack of libido is the orgasm shot, or “O-shot,” a non-surgical procedure that changes the game for women.

Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is fairly common among women of all ages. A large percentage – as high as 40 percent, according to some surveys – experience difficulty orgasming. In other studies, about 80 percent of women acknowledged they have pretended to orgasm at least once while having sex with a partner.

So, what can be done to assist all these women faking their way through sexual encounters instead of reaching actual climax and experiencing the pleasure they deserve? In 2011, reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Samuel Wood and other co-developers began clinical trials of what they anticipated would be the best treatment for alleviating female sexual dysfunction: the O-Shot.

What Exactly Is the O-Shot?

Before receiving any treatments, it’s a good idea to get informed. Here’s what we know: The O-Shot is a type of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) known for using the natural growth factors in your own blood to stimulate cell growth and promote rejuvenation in the treated area. As a non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical, the O-Shot naturally boosts collagen production using the healing factors already in your body, which helps build firmer vaginal tissue and improves blood circulation with mitigated risks and no side effects.

How Does It Work?

During the procedure, the caregiver will draw your blood and extract platelets, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which are then injected into the vagina. The platelets encourage new cell growth in the vaginal walls and clitoris, which makes them more sensitive to the touch, and thus leads to improved arousal and libido. The in-office procedure only takes about 20 minutes, and it is performed by a certified doctor or nurse-practitioner.

Because of how recent the O-Shot became a widely offered medical service, there are few formal, peer-reviewed studies on the long-term benefits of the procedure. Many women who receive the O-Shot, however, report increased vaginal sensation before and during sex and stronger orgasms as a result of the treatment. It can also increase vaginal lubrication and create firmer, tighter vaginal tissue.

The best part? While the procedure takes a short amount of time, the results build over a year or more. The O-Shot stimulates stem cells, collagen and blood vessels during a period of at least 18 months.
