“O” It’s About Time.
Better Sex and Vaginal Rejuvenation, Naturally.
Who doesn’t want to have great sex? As humans, it’s part of how we communicate. It’s part of our genetic wiring. Great and regular sex can squash depression and anxiety, increase immunity, and decrease stress. We all have sex, and we are meant to enjoy healthy sex. Few things are as intimate as making love to the one you love. However, things like chronic stress, medical conditions (and/or the medications used to treat them), emotional issues, and trauma can significantly impact the quality of sex we are having. This can hinder one’s ability to enjoy this special encounter. This is known as sexual dysfunction.
What Is Sexual Dysfunction Exactly?
There are several phases related to love-making, including desire, arousal, the build-up, and climax. Sexual dysfunction is characterized by problems during any stage of the sexual response cycle that prevents a person from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. Diabetes, heart disease, and neurological issues can cause this condition. Other factors can cause this condition, including hormone imbalances (like hypothyroidism or menopause), dyspareunia (painful sex), addiction, chronic antidepressant use, and well-being issues such as stress, anxiety, trauma, and depression. As many as 43% of women (and 31% of men), according to research, have some type of sexual dysfunction. Now, for the first time, women have a viable option for treating it. Enter the orgasm shot or O-Shot®.
What Is the O-Shot®?
It is an injection used to treat sexual dysfunction and female incontinence. If you have heard of the Vampire Facelift, then you may be familiar with the O-Shot® because the premise is the same. It is done by using platelets in your blood to stimulate cellular regeneration. This procedure is commonly known as PRP or platelet-rich plasma.
How Does PRP Work?
Blood is drawn from the patient and spun down to concentrate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). With a topical anesthetic, the PRP is then injected back into vaginal and clitoral arousal centers. The PRP contains the patient’s own growth factors, which stimulate collagen and blood flow. This causes a rejuvenating effect on the vagina and increases tone. In turn, it increases stimulation and pleasure. This means increased clitoral arousal, stronger vaginal orgasm, and better natural lubrication. Because the platelets come from your blood, there are no known side effects. The shot can be effective for up to two years.
Though each woman’s response to the O-Shot® can be different, here’s a list of some results that O-Shot® patients have reported:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina)
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Stronger orgasm
- More frequent orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Increased natural lubrication
- Decreased urinary incontinence
While there is no magic treatment that takes the place of all the other factors necessary for amazing sex (emotional, hormonal, relationship, and general health), the O-Shot® addresses certain physical issues that can have a profound effect on sexual function. Be sure to find a practitioner who is trained in administering the O-Shot®. Click for more info about the O-Shot® and O-Shot® Research.

Testimonial From a Patient on 10/3/14:
Dear Dr. Turner
I came to you because of a need for rejuvenation of sexual function after menopause. Sex was totally nonexistent in our marriage because of the discomfort caused by dryness, loss of elasticity, etc. After discussing the “O shot” and researching it, we decided that would be our next option. The procedure gave us back our love life, intimacy and happily pleasurable sexual function. I feel like a woman once again and the sexual well-being has had an extremely positive effect on our lives as husband and wife. Thank you Dr. Turner for your kindness and professionalism in helping us. ~PP & DP
