With ageing, certain processes and symptoms are inevitable, including those related to the vagina. To improve this, some patients may choose to try the O-Shot (also known as the Orgasm-Shot), a non-invasive method for vaginal and sexual rejuvenation.
Here to provide an expert insight into the O-Shot is Dr Nadia Yousri, highly esteemed OB-GYN surgeon, aesthetic gynaecology and sexual medicine specialist consultant, and regenerative cosmetic specialist.
What is the O-Shot and how does it work?
The O-Shot is a non-surgical rejuvenation procedure for the vagina that uses injections of platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood.
This platelet-rich-plasma contains natural growth factors that, when injected into the clitoris and upper vagina with a very thin needle, trigger builder cells (like stem cells and fibroblasts) to increase blood flow and stimulate the growth of new tissue, producing a rejuvenating effect in the vagina.
What symptoms can the O-Shot treat?
The O-Shot is a natural method that can treat various gynaecological symptoms, including urine leakage, diminished sensation and vaginal laxity, that commonly arise after vaginal childbirth or during the menopause.
These symptoms could only be treated with traditional treatment choices in the past, such as surgery, conservative measures or hormonal therapy. Now, there is a new way to treat all of these symptoms.
Who is a good candidate for the O-Shot?
The O-Shot is available to anyone over the age of 25.
Women go through many different stages during their lifetime and thus, there might come a stage when vaginal surgery is required. This can be performed for various reasons, starting from childbirth that mechanically changes the anatomy and the stability of the vaginal tissue, all the way to the menopause, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and even, skin diseases in the area. All of these can have an effect on the normal appearance and strength of the vagina, that the O-Shot can treat.
As well as a treatment option, the O-Shot can also be used as a prevention method against ageing, maintaining the strength, stability and functionality of the vaginal tissues.
What results can patients expect after the O-Shot? Are they long-lasting?
Patients will definitely benefit from the O-Shot, but results are variable and will depend on the individual, the duration of the gynaecological symptom(s) and the individual’s overall medical condition. Depending on the symptom(s) to treat, patients may also need more than one treatment session.
These variables, as well as patient expectations, will be discussed during the initial gynaecological assessment for the O-Shot.
Are there any disadvantages?
Allergic reactions to the O-Shot are very rare, because the patient’s own blood is used for the procedure.
However, both the case selection and the procedure need to be performed by a specialist to maximise the success rate and guarantee the safety of the O-Shot.
