From puberty to pregnancy to menopause, your body goes through countless changes. So with all your body endures, it’s no wonder that 75% of us struggle to achieve consistent orgasms or have to deal with the embarrassment that comes with age-related changes.
Dr. Rawan Abu-Zeitoon and her team at Chrysolite Aesthetics in Houston, Texas, understand the frustration these conditions bring. The good news? A new treatment with promising results could mean the end of your frustrating symptoms: The revolutionary new O-Shot®.
We know you have questions, so we put our heads together to give you everything you want to know about the O-Shot. Keep reading to get the information you need about this innovative women’s treatment.
1. Just what is the O-Shot?
The Orgasm Shot® (or O-Shot) was developed by a doctor, and it’s not a drug. Instead of medications, the O-Shot uses your blood, obtained by a simple blood draw, to create a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) solution.
Your platelets contain growth factors that stimulate the repair and regeneration of your bodily tissues. The PRP solution in the O-Shot has a high concentration of these factors, and it stimulates cellular and functional tissue growth, increasing blood flow.
2. What problems does the O-Shot help resolve?
The O-Shot helps improve a variety of women’s health problems, including:
- Vaginal dryness
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Trouble or Inability in achieving orgasm
- Sexual dysfunction or painful intercourse
- Weakness or pain in the pelvic floor
- Ongoing vaginal pain from childbirth
- Pain from transvaginal mesh
- Nerve regeneration
This nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatment improves your sexual health while minimizing the frustrating symptoms associated with advanced age, hormone imbalances, and menopause — without drugs or side effects!
3. Where will I get my O-Shot injection and how long does it take?
The team at Chrysolite Aesthetics creates a customized plan based on your specific needs. However, most patients receive two injections: One in the wall of the vagina, and one in the clitoris. Your treatment session is fairly short, usually lasting less than an hour.
4. Is the O-Shot very painful?
It’s true that these injections are in highly sensitive areas. But Dr. Abu-Zeitoon and the team apply a topical anesthetic to help numb the area and reduce any discomfort you may experience. Our patients generally report little to no pain during and after the O-Shot injections.
5. Is the O-Shot safe for me to use?
Yes! The O-Shot is extremely safe since it’s made from your own blood using sterile medical equipment. There’s little risk of infection, and most patients don’t experience any side effects. When they do occur, side effects include mild irritations, discoloration, and/or bruising at the injection site. Less commonly, some women experience mild itching or discomfort the day of treatment.
6. How long does it take to recover from getting the O-Shot?
No time at all! The O-Shot doesn’t require any type of special recovery. You can immediately resume your normal activities — including sexual intercourse.
7. How fast will I see results from the O-Shot?
How quickly you see results depends on your body and the symptoms for which you were seeking treatment. For example, women receiving the O-Shot to help with stress incontinence usually notice an improvement faster than women who need help with achieving orgasm.
The growth factors in the PRP solution take about two weeks to engage fully and create a noticeable change. Expect to enjoy maximum benefits in about three to four months after your initial treatment.
8. How long will the effects of the O-Shot last?
Although individual results vary, most of our patients report enjoying the benefits of a single O-Shot for one to two years. You’ll enjoy even better results by scheduling a follow-up injection about 6-12 months after your initial O-Shot. The Chrysolite Aesthetics team recommends annual O-Shot injections to maintain optimal results.
9. Who can get the O-Shot?
There’s no right or wrong age for getting the O-Shot. Urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction happen at all ages, so the O-Shot helps younger women who struggle to orgasm consistently as well as older women dealing with the frustrating side effects of menopause. After giving birth, some women lose sensation and vaginal tightness. The O-Shot helps address these conditions, too.
10. Will I still need lube after the O-Shot?
The O-Shot increases sensation in the vagina, so you can expect to experience greater arousal more quickly after your treatment. As a result of increased arousal, many women find their natural lubrication increases and they don’t need supplemental lube. Keep in mind that results vary depending on many factors.
