About the treatment

Female sexual dysfunction is a broad term that includes painful sex (also known as dysparaeunia), difficulty in achieving orgasm, vaginal dryness, reduced sexual arousal and low sexual desire. All of these are considered sexual dysfunction especially when they are associated with distress.

Causes of sexual dysfunction can be physical and/or mental in nature. Sexual function tends to decline with age, often due to menopause. Hormonal changes can result in shrinking of the vagina and vulva resulting in vaginal bleeding, vaginal burning, irritation, and pain and discomfort with sex. Urinary incontinence, weakening of pelvic muscles, prolapse and vaginal dryness can significantly affect sexual satisfaction. Multiple medical problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure and endometriosis also impact on sexual function.

What is the O-Shot®?

The O-Shot® is a non-invasive treatment used to help improve your sexual function. This is achieved by directly treating the clitoris and vaginal walls. The O-Shot® can result in increased arousal from clitoral stimulation, increased natural lubrication, a tighter vaginal opening, stronger and more frequent orgasms, decreased pain for those suffering with dyspareunia, improved urinary incontinence and a smoother rejuvenated looking vulva.

How does the O-Shot® work?

The O-Shot® was first described by Charles Runnels. It involves treating the clitoris and vaginal walls as well as the vulva with platelet rich plasma (PRP). Platelets are components of blood that help with healing wounds. When separated from blood and concentrated – platelet rich plasma – they can result in the release of large amounts of growth factors and stem cells. Areas treated with PRP get flooded with growth factors and stem cells and this results in the formation of collagen, nerve regeneration and new blood vessels. In the case of the clitoris and vagina, there is improved sensation, thicker vaginal walls and better functioning cells.
