WHAT IS THE O-SHOT?
The O-Shot is not a drug or medication. It is an in-office procedure where a medical professional injects the patient’s own blood platelets into vaginal tissue. Preparing The O-Shot involves drawing blood and isolating the platelet-rich-plasma (“PRP”) using a centrifuge. Then, you would inject the PRP into the vaginal tissue. Although injecting into this area might seem to be painful, a numbing agent is used to reduce the pain, and most patients find that there is minimal discomfort. This nonsurgical procedure releases many growth factors that activate localized stem cells. For many patients, the injection rejuvenates vaginal and clitoral function to increase sensitivity and sex drive. It can also alleviate some symptoms of bladder leakage.
The O-Shot can help women suffering from:
First the doctor or nurse applies a numbing cream to the vagina. Then blood is drawn from the arm in the same was as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. The whole process of taking the blood and turning it into platelets plasma takes about 10 minutes and can be done there in the room with the patient. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected the clitoris and into the upper vagina into an area most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot®. Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, the woman feels little or no pain
There has never been even one serious reaction to PRP prepared by an FDA approved kit in any part of the body (the FDA has not evaluated the use of this kit for preparing PRP for use in the vagina…but this procedure only uses the woman’s own blood to prepare the injection).
