If you could, would you seek medical treatment to improve your ability to orgasm and the quality of your orgasms?
For many women who experience sexual dysfunction — and even those without — the answer is yes. But is there an actual treatment that could do this for you… using your own blood as medicine?
Call it the shot heard round the world—only this time the revolution is on behalf of modern women. The O-Shot, a new, non-invasive treatment that aims to alleviate female sexual dysfunction and pledges to increase sexual arousal and rejuvenate the vagina by extracting PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, from a woman’s own blood and injecting it directly into the vaginal area. Marketed as the orgasm shot, or O-Shot, treatment involves injecting the clitoris, labia, and G-spot with platelets — a substance in your blood that contains healing proteins called growth factors — extracted from your own blood.

How does the O-Shot cause vaginal rejuvenation?
The shot works by using “high quality” Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) produced from the patient’s own blood. The PRP contains cell regenerating growth factors which, when injected into specific areas of the vagina, trigger stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue growth as well as help improve the vascularization of the area.
The theory proposed by the inventor, Dr. Charles Runels, is that platelets naturally attract your own stem cells to the injected area, and “generate healthier and more functional tissue in the areas of sexual response in the vagina (G-Spot, O-Spot, Skene’s Glands, urethra, and vaginal wall).”
Patients have reported a range of positive effects from the shots including:
- Increased sensation
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- The ability to have an orgasm from penetrative sex when previously unable
- Younger and smoother skin of the vulva
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- Improvement in urinary incontinence
- Decreased pain for those experiencing painful sex
- Increased natural lubrication
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
It helps with Incontinence and other conditions too!
The PRP shots can help with :
- ease urinary incontinence
- treat lichen sclerosus
- treat lichen planus
- treat chronic pain from childbirth and mesh, as well as interstitial cystitis
Some women claim the treatment has improved their orgasm experience greatly and has even helped treat incontinence.
What to expect during an O-Shot?
If you check out as healthy, your doctor will, in the following order:
- 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).
- Ask you to remove your pants and underwear.
- Apply numbing cream to your clit, labia, and/or G-spot.
- Inject local anaesthetic to your clit, labia and/or G-spot.
- Inject your platelets into your clit, labia and/or G-spot.
After this, you’re all done and ready to get dressed and leave the office. In all, the procedure should take about 30 minutes.
What to expect during recovery?
Recovery from the O-Shot is very quick. You may experience a small amount of local sensitivity for a day or two. That is all. You may even have intercourse the same day as treatment.
Do I need more than one O-Shot?
Patients can just have one orgasm shot or come back for more, which will build on the existing results. 8 weeks is generally recommended between treatments to ensure the full effects of the first treatment have been felt.
You may experience an increase in sexual desire and pleasure immediately, but full results are usually enjoyed after 3 months. Generally, women will begin to experience heightened sensation in the first 3-7 days and new tissue will begin to develop over the next 3-9 weeks. This will peak around the 3-month mark.
The results can vary depending on the patient’s starting point. For example, factors such as age, medical conditions, and hormonal problems can determine the results. The injection is not a “magic stick” – 50 percent of women may experience instantaneous “wow effects” while the other half may just notice a marked improvement.
O-Shot procedure results can vary depending on the patient, but they generally last between 14 and 18 months. On average, women repeat the procedure every 18 months.
Are there O Shot Complications?
Most patients experience minimal to no side effects after receiving the orgasm shot. However, you may experience mild redness, swelling and/or numbness for the first few days to one week.
Considering O-shots are so revolutionary, the number of research articles or clinical studies to support its overwhelming clinical efficacy is still sparse but ever so increasing. While scientists don’t yet fully understand how it works, it appears that the platelets may have some kind of healing and restorative properties when injected into an injured part of the body by releasing up to 35 different healing substances or growth factors.
If you are one of the many women who suffer from low sexual desire and loss of vaginal sensitivity along with other sexual dysfunction symptoms, the O- Shot may be just the thing you need. The best way is to schedule a consultation with a medical provider to ask questions and see if it is the right fit for you.
