The O-Shot®, or Orgasm Shot®, is best known for improving your sex life by rejuvenating erogenous areas, such as your clitoris. The active ingredient in the O-Shot, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is safe because it uses proteins called growth factors from your own blood. It’s effective because these hard-working proteins stimulate cellular growth, leading to new blood vessels, collagen, and other tissues.
You may not know, however, that the O-Shot’s benefits go beyond improving orgasms. When Dr. Mustafa Ahmed at Las Vegas Body Sculpting and Aesthetic, located in Las Vegas, NV, injects PRP in your clitoris and vagina, the growth factors in PRP have a broad impact on your urogenital health, creating five advantages you may not expect from the O-Shot.
The O-Shot can*:
1. Rejuvenate vaginal health
As you get older, and especially after menopause when estrogen levels drop, the tissues inside your vagina begin to atrophy, because estrogen is needed to keep them healthy. As a result, your vaginal lining becomes dry, less elastic, and susceptible to irritation and inflammation.
Many women believe these vaginal changes are a normal part of aging that must be endured, but that’s not the case. While vaginal atrophy does develop from age-related menopausal changes, you don’t have to put up with the symptoms, because the O-Shot can safely and effectively alleviate the problem.
When PRP is injected into your vagina, the natural growth factors stimulate the synthesis of substances that rejuvenate vaginal tissues, such as collagen and blood vessels. As new tissues replace old tissues, the vaginal lining regains strength and elasticity. PRP may also help reduce inflammation.
2. Enhance your sexual experience
One of the main reasons women decide to have an O-Shot is to improve orgasms by injecting PRP into the clitoris. PRP stimulates cellular growth, developing new tissues such as blood vessels and collagen that help you have orgasms by restoring and improving clitoral response.
The O-Shot may improve your sexual experience a second way. When PRP is injected inside your vagina, it can restore tissues in the Grafenberg spot, or G-spot. The G-spot is an erogenous area on the front wall of your vagina, about two to three inches inside the vaginal canal. When it’s stimulated, it leads to orgasm.
3. Alleviate painful sex
Painful intercourse, called dyspareunia, can affect women at any time during their lives. In early adulthood, it may be a sign of a gynecologic problem like ovarian cysts or endometriosis.
After menopause, painful sex develops in more than three-quarters of women due to vaginal dryness and loss of normal lubrication. Pain during intercourse may be relieved as PRP from an O-Shot restores the health of your vaginal lining by regenerating blood vessels, collagen, and elastin.
4. Improve urinary incontinence
The tissues that line your urinary tract also depend on estrogen to stay healthy. When estrogen levels drop, urinary symptoms develop, such as incontinence and urinary tract infections. It’s estimated that more than a third of postmenopausal women have pain while urinating or have a hard time urinating. When an O-Shot is injected in your vagina, it regenerates tissues in your urinary tract, which in turn helps relieve urinary incontinence.
5. Treat sexual dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is more common than you may realize, affecting 30-50% of all women. It has many possible causes, from emotional issues to physical problems like painful intercourse, inadequate lubrication, and not being able to achieve orgasm.
The O-Shot helps relieve the physical causes of sexual dysfunction. As the physical problems contributing to uncomfortable sex improve, so does another challenge — lack of desire. Not wanting to have sex is the most common type of female sexual dysfunction, affecting 5-14% of women.
Although women’s sexual desire depends on many factors that affect intimacy, an O-Shot may help you regain a satisfying sex life, if your loss of desire is due to the physical problems treated with a PRP-containing O-Shot.
