The O-Shot on Hilton Head Island

What is the O-Shot?

If you suffer from female sexual dysfunction or other sources of vaginal discomfort or incontinence, then the O-Shot treatment may be for you.

The board-certified team at Symbios Medical is pleased to offer the Orgasm Shot (O-Shot), which uses platelet-rich plasma and concentrated growth factors to stimulate the body’s natural healing process to rejuvenate the vagina to help relieve urinary incontinence, relieve pain and discomfort, and enhance sensation.

Nearly one in two women suffer from some form of urinary incontinence.

This is because of a reduction in vaginal tightness. This can be caused by multiple things, ranging from pregnancy and childbirth to menopause. The O-Shot is a minimally invasive and nonsurgical procedure that can increase vaginal health helping to reduce the symptoms of incontinence.

Frequently Asked Questions

The O-Shot is not a drug. It’s a procedure performed in a medical office in which your own blood platelets are injected into vaginal tissue. The theory proposed by the inventor, Dr. Charles Runels, is that platelets naturally attract your own stem cells to the injected area, and generate healthier and more functional tissue in the areas of sexual response in the vagina (G-Spot, O-Spot, Skene’s Glands, urethra, and vaginal wall).

Getting the O-Shot is usually painless. We numb the area with a gentle, cream-based product. Although every patient’s experience is different, most experience only minor discomfort. The injection feels like a slight pinch or warm sensation. There is no recovery time with this non-surgical procedure. It is quick and generally takes about 30 minutes to complete, including the numbing process.

Patients can just have one orgasm shot or come back for more, which will build on the existing results. Eight weeks is generally recommended between treatments to ensure the full effects of the first treatment have been felt. However, you can speak with a Symbios medical provider about the timeframe that works best for you.

You may experience an increase in sexual desire and pleasure immediately, but full results are usually enjoyed after three months. Generally, women will begin to experience heightened sensation in the first three to seven days and new tissue will begin to develop over the next three to nine weeks. This will peak around the three-month mark.

O-Shot procedure results can vary depending on the patient, but they generally last between 14 and 18 months. On average, women repeat the procedure every 18 months.

How does the O-Shot cause vaginal rejuvenation?

The shot works by using high-quality platelet-rich plasma produced from the patient’s blood. The PRP contains cell regenerating growth factors that, when injected into specific areas of the vagina, trigger stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue growth as well as help improve the vascularization of the area.

The O-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the arm. This sample is then put into a special centrifuge to produce the platelet-rich plasma. Once the PRP is extracted from the blood, it is injected into the numbed area near the clitoris and upper vagina.
