Curious About the O-Shot? All Your Questions Answered

Try the O-Shot

Between 30% and 50% of women experience sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives. These problems can vary from painful intercourse, lack of sexual desire, and reduced sensation to difficulty having an orgasm. When ignored, these issues can cause many women to lose interest in sex or enjoy it less, and can even affect their relationships. But there are solutions available.

At Pacific Wellness of Ventura, Dr. Cedric Emery and our team bring the most cutting-edge treatments to men and women in Ventura, California. And that includes the O-Shot® for women.

Today we’re here to provide answers to all of your questions about this amazing treatment that can improve or restore your sexual function.

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is a nonsurgical therapy designed to help women grow and regenerate healthier vaginal tissue. During your appointment, we inject platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the tissue surrounding your clitoris and G-spot. Your G-spot is inside your upper vagina and associated with sexual excitement.

What is PRP?

PRP is a regenerative medicine that leverages your body’s vital growth factors to rejuvenate and heal your tissue. To prepare your O-Shot injection, we draw your blood and concentrate the platelet-rich plasma in your blood by spinning it in a centrifuge.

How does the O-Shot work?

By injecting concentrated amounts of your blood’s growth factors into your vaginal tissue, the O-Shot triggers healing in the area. This reaction makes your tissue healthier, stronger, and more responsive.

What does the O-Shot treat?

We recommend the O-Shot for a range of vaginal issues, including:

The O-Shot can also improve urinary incontinence symptoms and painful intercourse in many women.

Does the O-Shot hurt?

Getting the O-Shot is relatively painless. You may experience mild discomfort when we draw your blood, but we numb the area surrounding your clitoris and inside your vagina before administering your PRP injection. After your procedure, you may experience minor vaginal bleeding or discomfort, but this fades quickly as the healing process gets underway.

How long until I see results from the O-Shot?

Most women begin seeing results in approximately three weeks as healthy, new tissue regenerates in the area. In most cases, you achieve maximum benefits within 2-3 months. For some women, we recommend 2-3 treatments approximately 6-12 weeks apart to get the best results.

Does the O-Shot work for everyone?

While the O-Shot can do wonders for a woman’s sexual function, it isn’t right for everyone.

Understanding the problems associated with your libido and orgasm are crucial to finding the most effective treatment. So, you may not see optimal results from the O-Shot if your sexual problems are because of your emotions, problems with your partner, or extensive scarring or nerve damage in the area.

To see if the O-Shot is right for you, call Pacific Wellness of Ventura today to schedule an appointment.
