Let’s talk about sex. Or, at least, the controversial O-Shot injection that promises explosive orgasms. Whether you’re sexually active or between partners, sex plays a big role in our society and it’s time to get comfortable talking about it.
Did you know it’s estimated that 37% of women are unable to orgasm from penetration alone? This can make sex feel isolating, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Here’s what you need to know about how The O-Shot can help you have better sex. (You’re welcome.)
What is it?
The O-Shot is a non-surgical injection that is touted to increase sexual arousal and rejuvenate the vagina.
Okay, but how does the O-Shot work?
The injection works by triggering stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue growth.
Let’s explore a bit further: During the procedure your injector will start by taking blood from your arm. The blood is then converted into platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — this just means that a machine called the centrifuge separates the PRP from the rest of the blood. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that’s mostly made of water and protein. It lets red and white blood cells and platelets move through your bloodstream and is known for triggering healing in areas where it’s injected.
Once the PRP has been successfully extracted, it’s time to inject it into the vaginal wall and near the clitoris. Admittedly, this is the uncomfortable part: however, the area is properly numbed prior to the shot, so the pain is relatively minor with some patients describing the injection as a sharp pinch. AKA, If you’ve dabbled in other fillers, you’ll be a pro.
From the initial blood draw through the injection, the O-Shot procedure takes only 45 minutes.
What happens after the O-Shot?
Following the procedure you’ll have to wait two weeks before you can have intercourse. Technically speaking there may be swelling or numbness following the shot, but this will subside within a week and is nothing to worry about.
Expect to feel an increase in sensation starting one week after the injection, with results developing over the next few weeks, and peak results appearing at three months.
How long does it last?
The O-Shot injections lasts up to 18 months, so you’re all set to have better sex for more than a year. Additionally, if you love your first injection, you can build upon it after eight weeks for heightened sensitivity.
What exactly does it do?
Following the procedure you can expect a range of results including increased sensation, stronger and more frequent orgasms, ability to have a vaginal orgasm, and greater arousal.
If that doesn’t sell you on the O-Shot, nothing will.
