The O Shot® (Orgasm Shot®) is the first treatment designed to enhance a woman’s enjoyment of sex.
If “KY Gel, a Vibrator, and better communication with your partner” feels like outdated advice, it’s because they are! The sexual revolution is here – and it’s time women felt empowered to enjoy sex beyond their twenties, after childbirth, and even after menopause.
There are so many treatments that have become available in recent years that tackle female sexual health and performance, including ThermiVa, Exilis Ultra Femme, Emsella, and the DiVa laser, but the O-Shot is the only treatment that addresses the woman’s pleasure and enjoyment, as opposed to physical function. For the many women who find that they can have sex, but don’t really want to or enjoy it (like they used to), this procedure can offer a healthy way to return to positive sexual function and enjoyment.
“My orgasms are better, longer, and honestly, I can’t get enough of my husband — I can’t recommend it enough.”
The O-Shot helps restore and renew the cells in the most important parts of the vagina and vulva for sexual pleasure, by both creating new cell growth and enhancing blood flow to these tissues, which increases sensitivity.
Benefits of the O-Shot Include:
- Increased sexual desire and libido improvement (often called “sex drive”)
- Increased intensity of Orgasms
- Much easier time reaching orgasm – including the ability to reach orgasm without clitoral stimulation (vaginal orgasm through the g-spot)
- Greater physical arousal and an easier time becoming aroused
- Increased vaginal lubrication – and a decrease in painful intercourse for those experiencing that
- Improved Appearance of skin surrounding the clitoris
Gail, 53, has been married for 20 years and had resigned herself to lackluster, once-a-month lovemaking. “I wasn’t really aroused no matter what we did,” she says… The result? She noticed an immediate effect, and she returned home from work that day ready to go. Whereas before, she’d fake orgasms and felt “inadequate,” she now looks forward to sex.2
How long does it take for O shot to work?
Because the O-Shot includes direct injection of very sensitive areas, these tissues will experience increase sensation right away. You may or may not like this, but that swelling tends to resolve within 1-3 days afterward. Then things feel as if they’ve gone back to normal – but beneath the surface your body is hard at work building new cells and increasing blood flow. This process of building new tissues will be done around 8-12 weeks later, when the full results are realized.
The O-Shot makes use of your own growth factors and healing factors, extracted and concentrated down from your own blood.
This is then injected by a highly skilled physician into 2 locations:
- Into and around the clitoris – the most sensitive part of the vulva outside of the vagina, that most women achieve the most pleasure from
- Into and around the “g-shot” – a sensitive part of the inside of the vagina believed to be very important to climax during sexual intercourse with a male
It is believed these injections help to build new tissues, such as blood vessels, as well as to repair the vaginal tissue that already exists in these areas.
By her late 30s, getting to that same level of arousal “required so much foreplay, I was ready to give up,” say Nadia, age 39. When she heard about the O-Shot, she decided to give it a try. She says she now has an orgasm every time she has sex, “stronger ones than I used to have when I was younger.2“
The O-Shot price at our office is $1200 per session or procedure.
For a limited time, we will be offering the O-Shot at $1000 per treatment as an introductory incentive to encourage our patients to try this life-changing treatment. Call us now to take advantage!
O-Shot Treatment: What is the procedure like?
After meeting with your female physician for an in-depth consultation, including your medical history and clearance for the procedure, we follow these steps to perform the O-Shot Injections:
Step 1: Your blood is drawn and taken to our in-house lab to be transformed into the Vampire plasma and drawn up into 2 syringes
Step 2: Numbing cream is applied to the outside of the vagina, while you lay comfortably. it takes about 15 to 20 minutes for this to “kick in.”
Step 3: Numbing injections are given for the areas to be injected inside the vagina. These take immediate effect.
Step 4: The 2 sets of injections in the clitoris and G-spot are given by a doctor, in the now-numbed areas, taking about 10 minutes in total.
“Overall, I’m about twice as likely to feel stimulated during sex and achieve orgasm, and those orgasms are stronger and better every time.”
– Emil McCombs3
Downtime After the O-Shot
There’s no real “downtime” after the O-Shot. You can return to work, social activities, and working out immediately, though sex and intimate touching must wait 24 hours. Your doctor will discuss these restrictions and instructions for your post-procedure actions in detail and you will be given written instructions to take with you as well, so that you don’t need to worry about remembering all the details.
O-Shot Risks & Side Effects
There are some rare complications since a needle is being used, such as bruising, infection, granuloma, urethral injury, or nerve damage.
One might experience spotting (light bleeding at the injection sites), hypersexuality, or no effect at all.
But the vast majority of patients report these side effects:
- Swelling that lasts 24-72 hours
- Heightened awarenes of the area injected
- Improved sexual function that continues to improve over the first 8 weeks and then maintains for up to a year
Frequently Asked Questions About the O-Shot
Is the O-Shot the same as the Vampire O-Shot, G-Shot, and P-Shot?
Yes, the O-Shot is sometimes referred to as the Vampire O-Shot or G-Shot, because we are using your own blood (vampire) and one of the two places we inject is the “g-spot” (G-shot).nThe P-Shot is the O-Shot version for males, which we don’t perform at this time. It’s a very similar procedure with different injection points.
Who performs the O-Shot at Reflections?
Dr. Joni Jefferson, the cosmetic physician who also provides our vaginal rejuvenation treatments, provides the O-Shot at our offices. It’s important to have a physician performing these injections because a deep understanding of the anatomy involved and safety protocols is important. Dr. Jefferson was trained and certified by Dr. Charles Runnel, the creator of the O-Shot, as a certified provider of this unique technique.
Does the O-Shot help with urinary incontinence?
We are unconvinced that the O-Shot helps with urinary incontinence, but we do offer 2 treatments that have been shown to help with urinary incontinence: ThermiVa and Exilis Ultra Femme.
Can I have Thermiva or Exilis Ultra Femme the same day as my O-Shot?
Yes, you can have ThermiVa or Exilis Ultra Femme on the same day as your O-Shot.nMany patients who have both functional issues, such as looseness and urinary incontinence, in addition to a lack of sensitivity, will choose to have both the O-Shot and either ThermiVa or Exilis Ultra Femme.
Can I have the O-Shot the same day as my consult?
Yes, you can have your O-Shot treatment right after your consultation, provided you are a candidate. Please let us know if you wish to treat the same day so that we can block out more time with our physician for your appointment.
How do I prepare for my O-Shot treatment?
The O-Shot requires drawing your blood, for which we recommend you eat normally and hydrate. Those who are dehydrated may find the blood draw portion more difficult.nYou may also want to bring a panty liner with you to wear after your treatment, as some women do have spotting (light bleeding) at the injection sites.
How soon after having the O-Shot can I have sex again?
You must abstain from sexual activity for at least 24 hours after treatment. This is a precaution against bacteria entering your injection sites and creating an infection.
Do I need to take off time from work or working out in order to have the O-Shot?
You don’t have to take time off from work or working out after having the O-Shot. You will have blood drawn for the procedure, but it is a small amount that should not leave you feeling weak, or unable to work out, provided that you eat and hydrate normally.nnSome patients prefer to take the day off from work. You should expect to be numb for several hours, and some patients report an awareness of sensation when the numbing wears off that is distracting or possibly uncomfortable.
What if the O-Shot doesnu2019t work for me?
Sexual enjoyment requires a complex combination of varying factors, including sexual function, desire, relationship health, hormones, and overall health of the individual. To think there is 1 treatment that can solve all of that is foolish. Certainly Cialis and Viagra don’t claim they can solve all of those things either.nnBut the O-Shot does work for those who are looking for increased sensitivity, which is often the biggest problem facing women.nnIf the O-Shot doesn’t work for you, you may be referred to other treatments or physicians. The good news is there is very little risk of a bad outcome.
Is the O-Shot painful?
Of course, everyone has a different pain tolerance, but the O-Shot without numbing would be uncomfortable.nnWe do 2 types of numbing for the O-Shot: numbing cream applied topically and injection numbing using lidocaine (this is very similar to what the dentist gives you before they fill a cavity). This means patients are comfortably numb during the procedure and for a little while afterward.
Is the O shot permanent?
The results from the O-Shot are not permanent, but are thought to last up to 1 year. A few select patients have reported they felt their results lasted as long as 2 years.
Does the O shot work for incontinence?
The O-Shot doesn't work for incontinence, but ThermiVa and Exillis Ultra, 2 different vaginal rejuvenation treatments we offer at our New Jersey practices, do! Your private consultation with the doctor is the best time to talk about all of your concerns, and which treatment(s) will best for you.
How long does the O shot last for?
Patients typically experience results for a year, though some find they want a boost around the 6 month mark, especially for those who had more severe symptoms before treatment.
