Yes, the “O” stands for orgasm, here’s why. The O-Shot® is an ingeniously simple solution to an impressive range of vaginal health issues including, but not limited to, difficulty reaching orgasm, low libido (decreased desire), vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse as well as urinary leakage and lichen sclerosus. Many of these conditions are not uncommon, particularly in maturing women or women who have had children.
What is the O-Shot?
The orgasmic shot is a non-invasive form of sexual rejuvenation therapy. It was brought to us by the creator of the popular vampire facial, Dr. Charles Runels, M.D., and it harnesses the same powerful active ingredient: platelet-rich plasma (PRP). In the same way PRP regenerates the skin of the face by boosting collagen and elastin production, PRP regenerates the vaginal tissue by activating growth stem cells that multiply and grow new tissue throughout the week following the procedure. The immediate result is the enlarging and lifting of the clitoris. The final result is increased sensitivity, tighter vaginal tissue, increased sex drive, and better sex. Just one shot can yield long-term results! According to Dr. Sam Wood, M.D., clinical trial patients continued to experience amazing results 14 months after a single injection.
The entire procedure takes under an hour from start to finish and uses advanced technology to facilitate the process. It begins with a simple blood draw. Then the patient’s blood is spun on a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells so the growth factors can be easily extracted. Prior to the injection a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the injection sites, directly under the clitoris and between the top of the vagina and the urethra. Patients should anticipate experiencing little to no pain during the injection process.
Is the O-Shot Approved by the FDA?
Growth factor injections are neither approved nor forbidden by the FDA, as they consist of the patient’s own blood rather than a drug. This eliminates any chance of an allergic reaction to the injection. While the O-Shot and other growth factor injections are not FDA-approved, they are well-known and well-documented techniques used in a variety of fields for their remarkable effectiveness. The FDA has approved growth factor harvesting kits, which are used in the O-Shot procedure.
Is the O-Shot Accessible?
The O-Shot is delightfully accessible. Most women can expect to pay from $1,500 to $2,000 for their individual O-Shot. Please keep in mind that the only way to know what the final cost will be is to undergo a consultation to discuss your specific desires and medical history. Slight variances in how the shot is prepared and injected can change the final cost. Patients are usually able to receive their O-Shot during the same visit, which saves both time and money. And what’s more, Dr. Bhatia offers an O-Shot package that even further reduces the price of an O-Shot.
Oh! Girls Just Want to Have Fun (and Be Heard)
Historically women have been excluded from sexual health research. Today the treatment for sexual dysfunction is no longer viewed as an exclusively male issue. Better late than never; however, the gender gap in sexual health research has propagated stigma around the conversation of women’s sexual health and satisfaction. Up to 75 million women in the US alone suffer mentally and physically from sexual problems. Yet, only an estimated 14% of women with symptoms of sexual orgasmic dysfunction actually discuss it with their physician. Ladies, it is vital for you to accept nothing less than full support from your provider. It is their responsibility to provide you with a safe space to discuss any health-related issue. If you feel like your gynecologist is not listening to you, it is time to look elsewhere, because you deserve to have some fun and be heard!
