Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the O-Shot®

Looking for vaginal rejuvenation to stop embarrasing urine leaks, kickstart your sex life, or help cure itching on or around your vaginal tissues? While the O-Shot® has been touted by celebrities mainly as the way to better orgasms for women, this treatment can positively impact many other areas of your sexual and reproductive health.

At the Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine in Dothan, Alabama, Dr. Gregory Thompson provides the O-Shot as a rejuvenation and restorative treatment for women with a wide range of urogynecological symptoms or vaginal issues.

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is an injection into the vaginal tissue of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP contains a concentrated amount of platelets obtained by centrifuging a vial of your own blood. PRP can boost healing and is used for many medical purposes, particularly for sports injuries or joint pain.

When injected into the vaginal tissues, PRP can stimulate healing and enhance blood flow to the affected areas. Since it’s made from your own blood, there are no side effects and your body won’t reject the injection. Women who get the O-Shot can benefit in many ways.

Enhanced ability to orgasm

Many women find that they orgasm more easily and have stronger, longer-lasting orgasms after an O-Shot. This can lead to an increased libido, better sex life, and improved self-confidence. 

Faster healing of the urinary tract

If you have undergone urethral surgery or urinary tract reconstruction, PRP can help speed healing and relieve pain. Many women can regain strength in the pelvic ligaments, reducing urinary incontinence. If you leak a little when you laugh, sneeze, or cough, PRP can help you regain control. 

Treatment for lichen sclerosus

The O-Shot has proven particularly helpful for women with lichen sclerosus, a condition that causes white, flaky, thinner skin in lesions on the vulvar and vaginal tissues. This can lead to itching, redness, tearing of the weakened skin, and painful sex.

After O-Shot treatment with PRP, many women find their lesions to be significantly reduced. Almost one fourth of women in one study saw their lesions disappear completely. In another study, 62% of women saw significant improvement in their quality of life after the O-Shot.

It’s time to take back control

If you have lichen sclerosus, urinary incontinence, or sexual dissatisfaction, the O-Shot could be just what you need to take back control over your body.
