Sexual dysfunction or lack of sexual desire can hit women of all ages. They experience an inability to reach climax and pain during intercourse A rough estimation shows that approx 43% of women reported poor sexual function. The situation becomes worse for women facing menopause or post-menopausal symptoms. This is the point where women want to improve sexual health, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse.
To resolve these issues, A new technique namely O-shot is designed. The prime objective of this technique is to treat issues related to women’s sexual health and give a better experience of sex life.
Do You Know About O-shot?
Orgasm shot or O-shot is a type of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for your vagina. It is a non-surgical technique that helps women to improve their sexual health, increase pleasure and also rejuvenate their vagina.
This technique was discovered by Charles Runels, M.D., an internist, medical researcher, and former chemist from Alabama. He strongly believes that women definitely need more scientific solutions to their sexual problems. Therefore he comes up with this idea in 2011. He claims that this technique boosts womens’ sex drive and ability to reach climax.
How O-shot Works?
The O-shot technique utilizes the own blood plasma of a woman for herself. Platelet-rich plasma is a magical portion of our blood that has all the growth factors required to stimulate and produce new cells and heal the damage. O-shot involves the collection of blood and injecting it into the vagina for healthy productions of new cells, blood vessels, enhanced sensitivity, and improved vaginal health.

- Gently apply numbing cream to your clit, labia, and/or G-spot.
- Collect your blood and rotate it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma (liquid) from the platelets (the tissue that will be injected into your vagina).
- Administer a local anesthetic to your clit, labia, and/or G-spot through injection.
- Inject platelets of your own blood plasma into your clit, labia, and/or G-spot.
Possible Side Effects
Runel after his small pilot study, mention that two women who participated in the study experienced the following side effects
- continuous sexual arousal
- ejaculatory orgasm
- sexual arousal with urination
- spontaneous orgasm
The side effects of PRP injections in the vaginal area have not been studies. However, alternative investigations on PRP injected elsewhere in the body suggest the following possible side effects:
- Numbness at the injection site
- Buzzing vaginal sensation
- Allergic reactions
- Bruising at the injection site
How long does the Result of the O-shot Last?
The Durability of O-shot results highly depends on the patient. Generally, the effects last between 14 and 18 months, and women can repeat the procedure after every 18 months.
In conclusion. O-shot for vaginal rejuvenation is the newest innovation in the cosmetic and medical fields. But it lacks enough research and studies to explore its effects on other body areas. Therefore more search is needed to claim O-shot benefits with scientific evidence. The historical success of PRP treatment for cosmetic and skin rejuvenation gives hope that in the future, it will prove to be good for vaginal health also.
