It is not unusual for a woman to lose the ability to enjoy an orgasm. While hardly dangerous, such a problem can lead to embarrassment and problems with a relationship. Good sexual health is important for many women, and that’s why the ‘O-shot’ procedure is becoming more popular.
What is the O-shot, does it work, and is it something you should consider? Furthermore, what are the benefits and potential risks of this procedure? We’re going to explain in simple terms what it’s all about, so let’s begin by talking about what the O-shot is.
What is the O-Shot?
The O-shot procedure consists of a couple of injections that insert a substance known as Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the clitoris, labia, and potentially other areas that may benefit. We’ll explain what PRP is in a moment, but for the record the O-shot is designed to rejuvenate the woman’s sexual organs and allow her to enjoy better and more impressive orgasms. It is a safe procedure and as there is a local anaesthetic is practically painless. So, what is PRP, and why is it central to the O-shot procedure?
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich Plasma is a substance that exists within our blood. Blood is made up of red and white cells, plus plasma and platelets. The latter two are known to be growth and regeneration agents and play a large part in the encouragement of cell growth. PRP has been used in many instances where athletes have suffered injury, for example, and is also used in hair restoration treatments, plus the male version of the O-shot which is the ‘P-shot.’
PRP is effectively created by extracting some of the patient’s blood in the normal manner. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge where the white and red cells are separated from the platelets and the plasma. The PRP is then injected back into the vaginal area.
How does this work? Imagine you have a set number of platelets and plasma in the blood. Yet the cells needed for orgasm – for instance – are not being encouraged enough. By adding PRP you are enhancing the growth agents in that area. PRP encourages new cells, rejuvenates the area, repairs blood vessels, and helps the patient get back to a level of sexual ability they aim for. Are you a candidate for the O-shot?
Who Has the O-Shot?
A woman’s sexual health is a complex and personal area and one that differs between each. However, becoming unable to enjoy sex to the full can lead to depression, problems with relationships, and a life that is not as enjoyable. Candidates for the O-shot include women who have reached menopause – perhaps prematurely – or, for whatever reason, are having problems reaching orgasm.
Your first step is to see a doctor or make an appointment at a Dallas clinic that provides this procedure and undergo an initial consultation. Now to the subject in the title – what are the benefits of the O-shot?
What are the Benefits of the O-Shot?
Quite simply, should the O-shot procedure be successful, it will restore your ability to enjoy a healthy sex life whether you are partnered or not! However, that’s not all, as the following have all been reported as benefits of the O-shot:
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased Arousal
- Increased lubrication
- A heightened orgasm during sex or masturbation
- Eases urinary incontinence
- Treat lichen sclerosis
- Treats lichen planus
- Treat chronic pain from childbirth and mesh.
Not every woman will experience all of the above but the first four on the list are those that the patient is clearly aiming at. Is the O-shot safe? Let’s talk about safety briefly.
Is the O-Shot Safe?
One aspect of the O-shot that enhances safety is that it uses the PRP process. PRP is inherently safe as the PRP is taken from the patient’s own blood. This means there is no risk of contamination, so that potential problem is eliminated. Furthermore, the procedure will be carried out by trained and qualified professionals who will do all they can to make the patient comfortable.
Recent research among women who have had the O-shot showed that there are a few potential side-effects, yet the following curious after-effects were reported by a few women out of a survey of many O-shot patients:
- continuous sexual arousal
- ejaculatory orgasm
- sexual arousal with urination
- spontaneous orgasm
The above are therefore rare and the following are the more commonly reported aftereffects:
- allergic reaction
- bruising at the injection site
- numbness at the injection site
- pain and soreness at the injection site
- redness at the injection site
- scar tissue
- swelling at the injection site
- vaginal sensitivity, including a “buzzing” sensation
There have been no reports of long-term complications with the O-shot procedure. Let’s move on and look at what you should expect when you undergo the Orgasm-shot.
What to Expect During the O-Shot Procedure?
As we have already said there is virtually no pain as a local anaesthetic is administered – in fact, a survey at one clinic asked for a measure of pain during the procedure on a scale of one to 10 with 10 being highest, and no scores of more than two were reported. The professionally trained and experienced practitioner will go through the following stages when providing the O-shot:
- 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 anaesthetic to your clit, labia and/or G-spot.
- Inject your platelets into your clit, labia and/or G-spot.
That’s it, and you’re ready to get dressed and go back to work! You can expect to feel heightened sensations in a few days, and in a little as a few weeks will be back to enjoying sex and orgasms as you used to. Talk to a consultant at a Dallas clinic if you think the O-shot can help you.
