O-shot® Frequently Asked Questions
The O-shot PRP injection is a single, easy treatment that allows women to experience improved orgasm response. Additionally, the safe, virtually painless O-shot treatment can also help treat vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence.
In this article, board-certified OBGYN Dr. Vikas Merchia answers questions asked most frequently by his some of his Brockton, Boston & Quincy MA patients before undergoing the O-shot.
What Does an O-shot® Treatment Entail?
The O-shot uses the same PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) technology that has been used to regenerate joints in sports medicine for over a decade.
The procedure begins with board-certified OBGYN Dr. Merchia drawing a sample of blood. Then, through the use of centrifuge, he will isolate the blood’s platelet rich plasma (PRP), a process that takes roughly 10 minutes or so. During this time, the injection sight will be treated with a numbing agent. Once the treatment area is numb and the PRP is ready, the PRP is injected into the clitoris and upper vagina through a very thin needle.
Is the O-shot® Painful?
Almost none of the patients who visit our practice report any pain or discomfort during their O-shot procedure. To ensure maximum comfort, the O-shot treatment area is anesthetized with a topical numbing cream. That said, a very small percentage of our O-shot patients claim to experience a slight stinging or pinching sensation during the procedure.
In any case, O-shot patients are able to resume sexual activity, as well as other physical activities such as exercise, immediately after their O-shot treatment.
What Kind of Results Does the O-shot® Produce?
Most O-shot patients begin to notice results from their treatment almost immediately. Our Brockton, Boston & Quincy MA patients of all ages report increased sensitivity in the clitoris and g-spot area, stronger orgasms – and even multiple orgasms have been reported by O-shot patients (including patients who have never experienced this before).
Full effects from the O-shot usually take between three and four weeks to develop – as the PRP stimulates the tissue to regenerate. There have been some extremely rare cases of women reporting that they did not notice an improvement in sexual experience following their first O-shot. While this is not a common occurrence, an additional O-shot injection may be needed for a small number of patients once eight weeks have passed.
How Long Will an O-shot® Remain Effective?
Generally, results from the O-shot last as long as three years – with some women’s results lasting even longer. Nonetheless, in order to maintain these life changing results, many women will choose to repeat the O-shot every 18 months to 2 years.
Does the O-shot® Have Side Effects?
Because the O-shot is 100% natural – using the patient’s own cells to be injected back into their body – no side effects have been reported. There is no risk of an allergic reaction, and no risk of a transmissible infection as long as standard clinical sterile procedures are followed.
Patients who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, or nursing should not undergo the O-shot. People who have severe allergies, have a history of hyper sensitivity, or have an active infection should also refrain from the O-shot treatment. Women experiencing any medical issues with their vaginal health, such as a yeast infection or UTI, should also wait to get the O-shot until such issues have been resolved.
Some women report experiencing some mild soreness after their O-shot, which should subside in less than 24 hours. As is the case with all injections, there are rare cases of O-shot patients experiencing an extremely small amount of bleeding from the injection site.
because it is just a simple injections – like a flu shot – O-shot patients are able to return to work, as well as resume all normal daily activities (including sexual activity) the same day as their treatment.
Can I Get More Than One O-shot® Treatment?
A single O-shot injection is enough to provide most women with significantly improved sexual function and satisfaction. That said, many women have reported experiencing additional benefits from undergoing multiple O-shots. In some cases, women may partake in an ongoing series of O-shot treatments to renew or adjust their results. Patients who wish to undergo an additional injection must wait at least eight weeks after their initial O-shot.
Is the O-shot® Approved by the FDA?
Since PRP is simply derived from the patient’s own cells, it not considered to be a drug and therefore does not require approval by the FDA. However, methods we use of harvesting PRP have been granted FDA approval.
