Do you wish your sex life was better? Do you worry about urinary incontinence? Has aging, menopause, or childbirth caused a change in your vaginal confidence? Dr. Eliezer J. Livnat is an experienced, compassionate doctor of cosmetic gynecology who provides procedures such as the O-Shot® to women living in and around Boca Raton, FL to help them find sexual confidence through vaginal rejuvenation.
What is the O-Shot®?
The O-Shot® or “orgasm shot”, is a 20-minute office procedure that rejuvenates the tissue in the vagina and clitoris. Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood and then injected into the vagina at the G-spot and the clitoris. The platelets contain growth factors that stimulate the growth of new cells in the injected areas, which improves the nerve and blood supply to the area. It also improves stimulation, sensitivity, arousal, libido, lubrication, and orgasms.
Benefits of the O-Shot®
In addition to the improvement in sexual pleasure, prolonged or multiple orgasmic ability, increased sensitivity, and better lubrication, the O-Shot® helps control stress urinary incontinence (leakage of urine upon sneezing, coughing or jumping). The medical literature to date contains no reports of serious side effects from injecting platelet-rich plasma processed with an approved FDA kit. Since the PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, the chance of allergic reactions is eliminated.
Women who receive the O-Shot say that they have:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Younger, smoother looking labial skin
- A tighter vaginal opening
- Stronger, more frequent, and easier to achieve orgasms
- Increased sexual desire and lubrication
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Decreased urinary incontinence
Is the O-Shot® Right for Me?
If you are among the 30 to 50 percent of women who experience some form of sexual dysfunction, the O-Shot® could be right for you. Ask for a consultation if you:
- Have persistent vaginal dryness
- Experience pain or discomfort during sex
- Notice unwelcome changes in your vagina since childbirth or menopause
- Struggle with occasional urinary incontinence when you sneeze or cough
- Have one or more of the following diagnoses:
Fifty million women in the U.S. alone suffer from sexual problems that are often ignored by modern medicine or offered hormone therapy as the only possible treatment. The O-Shot® for women can remedy many issues, restoring confidence and the enjoyment of sex and orgasmic pleasure.
- Female Sexual Arousal Disorder, a diagnosis given to women who wish to have sex but find little or no pleasure or arousal in it.
- Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, a diagnosis given to women who experience low libido and insufficient sexual desire despite wanting to have sex.
- Female Orgasmic Disorder, a diagnosis to given to women who can become aroused, but find it difficult to orgasm.
- Dyspareunia, a diagnosis given to women who suffer with real pain during sex (not from decreased lubrication or vaginal spasm).
How Involved is the O-Shot® Treatment?
Before the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to both the vagina and the arm. Blood is drawn from the arm as with any blood test, then a centrifuge and special method is implemented to isolate growth factors in platelet-rich plasma. Using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected into the clitoris and the upper vagina, then into an area important for the sexual response, known as the O-Spot. The procedure is associated with minimal or no discomfort, thanks to the numbing cream and ice that may be applied to the injected area. Most women feel only a slight pinching sensation during the procedure.
Research shows that when platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected, stem cells multiply and grow new, younger tissue. In the same way that PRP can regenerate the skin of the face, PRP also regenerates healthy vaginal tissue. The O-Shot® procedure works by using PRP to stimulate stem cells to grow healthier vaginal tissue. The entire procedure takes less than 10 minutes.
The doctor injects the PRP into an area called the O-Spot: a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. Women usually enjoy the effects of the O-Shot® almost immediately as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response. The O-Shot® (or Orgasm Shot®) is the perfect nonsurgical procedure since it uses growth factors already in the body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation, increasing orgasmic ability.
How is the Recovery from the O-Shot® Treatment?
Patients typically immediately return to normal activity after this procedure, although some women may not feel comfortable having sexual intercourse for several days. Over the weeks following the procedure, most women report a gradual but significant change in their ability to become aroused, self-lubricated, ability to reach orgasm, and experience less incidence of urinary incontinence.
How Much Does the O-Shot® Cost?
The O-SHOT cost may vary, as it may be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as ThermiVa or vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. Livnat will discuss cost and payment options during your consultation.
