What is the V-Shot?
Many women suffer from decreased sexual pleasure. This can be due to multiple factors including painful intercourse, low levels of lubrication, difficulty in achieving orgasm, or discomfort based on the size of the vaginal canal.
The V-Shot also known as O-Shot (trademark owned by Dr. Charles Runels) is a life-changing non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment – that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate cellular growth and regeneration for improved sexual health. Women struggling with arousal from clitoral stimulation and urinary incontinence alike benefit from this medical procedure.
PRP injections have been doctor-approved for use in recovery in the sports medicine field before providers introduced the same shot procedure to treat pain and orgasm infrequency in women.
How Does the V-Shot Work?
The V-Shot is an exciting and innovative technology based on the body’s ability to heal its cells. Platelet-rich plasma is plasma that is separated from a blood sample and injected back into the body. This plasma is rich in growth factors and proteins that stimulate stem cell activation. These factors act upon tissue to promote growth, healing, and increased blood flow. This in turn increases sensitivity, lubrication, and nourishment resulting in the flourishing of healthy tissue.
The V-Shot is a regenerative autologous treatment, meaning the stem cells activated by the proteins and growth factors in the plasma come from the patient’s blood. These stem cells stimulate vascularization and collagen production in the clitoris and vagina and work to repair vaginal tissue and increase sensitivity.
This type of shot procedure has been FDA-approved for multiple uses outside of women’s health and is now being used to help female patients improve their sexual health without the risk of severe side effects.
What is the process like?
Patients come into the office for this non-invasive procedure. The process begins with a simple blood draw. This blood is run through a special centrifuge used to separate the platelet-rich plasma of the sample for use in the injections.
The patient is numbed with a cream applied to the clitoris and surrounding skin which has time to take effect while the blood is spun in the centrifuge. The clitoris is then injected with the plasma, and the procedure is finished!
Some women may be cautious about injections in such an area, however, because of the numbing cream and injection, there is little to no discomfort during the whole process!
Treatments like the V-Shot allow a woman’s own body to heal her cells through specific application of the nutrient-rich plasma.
What are the Benefits of the v-Shot?
Reported positive effects of the V-shot® procedure include:
- Increased clitoral stimulation
- Decreased overactive bladder
- Increased sexual arousal
- Increased lubrication
- Increased ability to orgasm
- Strong and more frequent orgasms
- Decreased pain during sex
- Smoother skin surrounding the vagina
- Tightening of loose vaginal canal
- Increase sexual desire
Results may vary, but the benefits from the shot are sometimes present to patients immediately after the office procedure within the first week. As new tissue grows in response to the injected PRP growth factors, the highest effect will be felt after 3 months.
Does the V-Shot Work for Incontinence?
Yes! The V-Shot is reported to improve issues related to incontinence in women who have undergone the procedure. The same growth factors that work to improve sexual activity can also be used by a medical provider to target tissue in the vagina involved in urinary tract health.
What Results Can I Expect?
There is no recovery time after the treatment. The patient will be able to resume all normal activities including intercourse within hours after the procedure. If there is, the length of results may vary, with some women repeating the treatments every 18 months.
You can expect a higher sex drive and a greater arousal in general from clitoral stimulation. You may also notice decreased urinary incontinence, decreased sexual dysfunction, and increased orgasm during vaginal sex. All of the results are attainable without the side effects of medication or surgery.
Are There Any V-Shot Complications?
No long term complications have been reported for the use of platelet-rich plasma in the V-Shot. Possible short term side effects may include bruising at the injection site, pain, or soreness. Because the patient’s own blood supply is used in this revolutionary procedure, there is little chance of introducing infection into the body.
