What is the O-shot?

The O-shot, or orgasm-shot, is an injection that rejuvenates your libido (sex drive) and improves orgasms by enhancing the erogenous area of your clitoris. The active ingredient in the O-shot isn’t a new, miracle drug; it’s platelet-rich plasma obtained from your blood.

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

Your blood naturally contains cells, or platelets, that are rich sources of proteins called growth factors. Any time you’re injured, platelets release growth factors that promote healing by triggering new tissue growth.

PRP is developed in the office during your appointment. Some of your blood is drawn then placed in a centrifuge that separates PRP from other blood components. Then, Dr. Starke uses your PRP for your O-shot.

What should you expect during the O-shot?

Dr. Starke applies a topical numbing cream, then injects your O-shot into an area near the clitoris, just inside your vagina. After the injection is inserted, growth factors go to work, encouraging surrounding cells to grow.

It takes a little time to produce new tissues, so you’ll begin noticing increased sensitivity and a better sex drive over the span of three weeks or so.

What benefits are gained from the O-shot?

Although each woman has a different experience, most gain the following benefits:

Better sexual experience

The O-shot is a perfect solution for women with a decreased libido and infrequent orgasms. As PRP stimulates the growth of nerves, blood vessels, and collagen, the increased sensitivity improves clitoral response, which in turn gives you better orgasms and boosts your desire for sex.

Relieves painful sex

Painful intercourse affects women of all ages for various gynecologic reasons. After menopause, this symptom starts to develop as low estrogen causes loss of lubrication and changes in vaginal tissues. You may find relief with the PRP in your O-shot, as it regenerates your vaginal lining.

Improved urinary incontinence

When an O-shot is injected into your vagina, it can also help restore thin or dry tissues in your urinary tract. As these tissues regenerate, the urinary tract regains strength, which alleviates urinary incontinence.

Many of Dr. Starke’s patients also report experiencing the following changes after an O-shot:

  • Improved vaginal lubrication
  • Tighter vaginal opening
  • Smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina)
  • Improvement of lichen sclerosis (a vulvar skin condition)
