O-Shot and G-Shot

What to Know About the O-Shot and the G-Shot

The O-Shot and the G-Shot are an injected medical procedure to enhance your ability to orgasm and the quality of your orgasm.

O-Shot and G-Shot are a type of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for your clitoris, labia and vagina.

About PRP

PRP treatments have most often been used to treat injuries in athletes.

PRP has been used extensively to treat sports injuries, aid in recovery from surgery, and even to treat medical conditions like  hair loss.

It involves drawing blood from a patient, isolating the platelet-rich plasma from the blood, and reinjecting the platelet-rich plasma into a part of the body that needs healing.

The platelets have healing and restorative properties when injected into an injured part of the body by releasing up to 35 different healing and growth factors.

The O-Shot / G-Shot treatment involves injecting the clitoris, labia, and G-spot with your own blood serum and platelets.  This component of your blood contains proteins called growth factors — extracted from your own blood.  They stimulate the production of new blood vessels, improved tissue circulation and creation of healthier tissue.  This treatment is known as PRP (platelet rich plasma).

Sexual function

The O-Shot was created by Dr. Charles Runels in Fairhope, Alabama. The original studies showed that there was a significant improvement in the female sexual function index. This is a questionnaire that is handed out to patients and they are able to answer it before and after the procedure.

Drs Runels, DeLucia, and other healthcare providers who offer the O-Shot find that it can improve vaginal sensation, sexual function, and a lot more.

Some reported benefits include:

  • increased sexual desire
  • increased arousal
  • increased lubrication
  • a heightened orgasm during sex or masturbation

How do you prepare for the procedure?

If you check out as healthy, your O-Shot provider will, in the following order:

  • Provide you with privacy to disrobe your lower
  • Have you (or assist you if needed) apply numbing cream to your clitoris and labia
  • Draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma (liquid) from the platelets (the tissue that will be injected into your tissue).
  • Inject local anesthetic to your clitoral area
  • Inject your platelets into your clitoral area and/or G-spot.

After this, you’re all done and ready to get dressed and leave the office. In all, the procedure should take about 30 minutes.

With the combination of topical and injected freezing, the O-Shot is generally comfortable. The scary part is just thinking about putting a needle ‘down there.’ When our patients are asked to quantify their discomfort level between 0 and 10 the discomfort the average answer is 2 out of 10.

Potential side effects and complications

According to the studies on PRP injected the following side effects are possible (but very uncommon):

  • allergic reaction
  • bruising at the injection site
  • dermatitis
  • infection
  • numbness at the injection site
  • pain and soreness at the injection site
  • redness at the injection site
  • scar tissue
  • swelling at the injection site
  • vaginal sensitivity, including a “buzzing” sensation

To date, there have been no long-term complications reported worldwide with the use of PRP in the O-Shot.”

What to expect during recovery

The recovery from the O-Shot is very quick. You may experience a small amount of local sensitivity for a day or two. It is ENCOURAGED to have intercourse the same day as treatment to assist in the distribution of the injected PRP.  For those individuals without a partner, “quality time” alone is another option

When should you see the results?

There are phases to the development of the effect:

Days 3 to 7 days you will experience heightened sensation in the area treated due to the actual fluid injection.

At approximately 3 weeks new tissue will begin to develop and will continue for the next 9 weeks, which then at 3 months will reach its peak development. These results will last out to at least a year.”

Who administers the O-shot?

In our office, only our physician, Dr Amber Bocknek administers the treatment directly.  She has her Diploma in Non-Surgical Cosmetic Gynecology from the Canadian Board of Aesthetic Medicine

What should you watch out for after the O-Shot?

These issues are uncommon, but it is important to seek urgent medical attention if you develop:

  • fever
  • severe redness
  • severe swelling
  • pus
  • bleeding

These are signs of infection or adverse reaction.

Steps to take

  • Screen and have a consultation with Dr Amber. To make sure the O-Shot is right for you, first schedule a consultation with our doctor.
  • Ask questions. Discuss the procedure — who and what is involved — expectations, results, risks, benefits, and its costs.
  • Talk separately with your family doctor. If you can, talk to a doctor who’s independent of the O-Shot provider, like your own general physician or a reproductive health doctor. There may alternatives to try first.
