What to Expect After the O-Shot

Due to the natural aging process, changes in our body are inevitable. Many women may begin to experience unwanted intimacy issues such as urinary incontinence, low libido, vaginal dryness, and more over time. However, there is now a solution available: the O-Shot! Read on to learn more about the benefits of this cutting-edge, minimally invasive treatment option, how it works, and what to expect after your treatment. 

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot, sometimes called the orgasm shot, is a minimally invasive treatment for women to help improve decreased libido, vaginal dryness, reduced ability to orgasm, and urinary incontinence. It is a great option for women who are looking for a solution to their intimate health issues but are not interested in invasive options that requires a great deal of downtime. At Tideline Center for Health & Aesthetics, we are proud to be able to offer this effective option to help improve our patients’ intimate health.

How Does the O-Shot Work?

The O-Shot involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from a patient’s own blood. Once blood is drawn, it is placed in a special device called a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then collected and placed into a syringe, and delivered to  the clitoris and vagina. PRP is widely used in the medical field to speed healing and stimulate new tissue growth, and these same properties improve blood flow and trigger tissue regeneration in a woman’s intimate areas.

Is the O-Shot Safe?

PRP treatments are a trusted method for stimulating new tissue growth and speeding healing. The O-Shot is considered a safe treatment option for women, and adverse side effects are rare. Overall, the best way to ensure that the O-Shot is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our office, where you can discuss your health history and symptoms with one of our skilled providers.

What to Expect After the O-Shot

Following your O-Shot treatment, PRP growth factors will start to work by activating stem cells in the treated tissues. Many patients experience improvements within the first three weeks, though full results may not  be seen for about three  months after injection. Positive results include improved sensation, decreased discomfort during intimacy, enhanced lubrication, and improvement in urinary incontinence.

There is no downtime required after your O-Shot treatment, which means that you may resume your normal activities, including intimacy, the same day. You may experience a feeling of fullness in your vagina for one to three days, which is normal. Mild vaginal swelling may also occur, which should resolve over the course of a few days. Results from the O-Shot last about 14-18 months, after which a repeat treatment can be performed.
