The O-Shot® may be for you! This revolutionary, non-surgical treatment uses your own concentrated platelets, called platelet rich plasma (PRP), to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation, enhancing women’s sexual function. It is also being used to significantly improve stress and urge incontinence. The PRP comes from a simple blood draw and is then injected back into the targeted areas. (Read more about PRP.)
At least 40% of women suffer from female sexual dysfunction (FSD). Common symptoms of FSD are decreased vaginal lubrication, pain and discomfort with intercourse (dyspareunia), decreased arousal, lack of libido (sex drive), weak orgasm, or difficulty achieving orgasm. Although causes can include psychological and medical reasons, many are related to atrophy, decreased blood flow, and other changes or trauma to the female anatomy.
FSD is more common than you think. Only 57% of women (versus 95% of men) are able to achieve an orgasm. Only 14% of women discuss their sexual difficulties with their doctors, due to lack of treatment options as well as embarrassment. For many years, most research and treatments for sexual dysfunction have been focused solely on men. There have been few SAFE and effective treatment options for women – until now! The O-Shot® may be the answer for many women!
The O-Shot® is not just for women who feel they have sexual difficulties, but it can also enhance sexual experiences for women with normal sexual function! And if you have ever experienced urinary accidents when you cough, sneeze, or try to work out, the O-Shot® could be for you. It has been highly successful in treating women’s stress and urge incontinence issues. Growth factors within the PRP rejuvenate and restore weakened muscular/erectile tissue near the urethra, allowing improved ability to retain urine. If not treated, urinary incontinence can worsen with age. The O-Shot® can help prevent further embarrassing accidents and allow you to live life to the fullest.

How is the O-Shot® performed?
A simple blood draw is done to obtain your plasma, and the platelets are isolated from that mixture using an FDA-approved system and centrifuge. During the preparation of the PRP, a small amount of topical numbing medication is applied to the clitoris and vaginal wall as well as a lidocaine block. These medications are used to add greater anesthetic relief for your comfort, making this procedure virtually pain free! The PRP is then injected into specific regions of the clitoris and vaginal wall where women experience sexual response.
What else can the O-Shot® treat?
Stress urinary incontinence
Vaginal scarring from trauma, episiotomy scars, past surgeries
In addition to the above, it can also enhance sexual pleasure in those with normal sexual function.
The amazing thing about PRP and the O-Shot® is that there is now hope for women who have suffered with pain from the above conditions. Treatments are safe compared with alternative treatments like medications that can cause multiple side effects. Although nothing works 100% of the time, these treatments are a safe and natural alternative, with no reported side effects in their applications, that have helped many women regain their quality of life!
How does the O-Shot® treat stress urinary incontinence?
Stress incontinence is very common in women of all ages and can occur for a variety of reasons and not just after having kids. Weakened pelvic floor muscles can occur over time with age, and many women, young or old, may find they have difficulty holding their urine when they sneeze, exercise, cough, or even in normal daily situations. Lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, and Kegel exercises along with medications have been usual treatments for stress and urge incontinence, but still many women continue to suffer from urinary accidents. The O-Shot® can be your solution to regaining confidence in your everyday activities without having to worry about embarrassing accidents.
When will I see results?
Some women having the O-Shot® for sexual health reasons see an immediate increase in sexual desire and pleasure; however, typically it may take up to 12 weeks to notice the biggest difference. Some women also notice immediate relief from stress and urge incontinence.
Results can typically last an average of 12-18 months or more with one treatment, but some women decide to have treatments done more often.
For women seeking treatment for lichen sclerosis or more severe issues, more than one treatment may be needed to have greatest relief. However, many women have noticed significant relief from pain and itching after the first treatment. Dr. Moon will recommend a certain number of treatments, but most patients typically require no more than 3 treatments in a series a few weeks apart. Many women have noticed that if symptoms return, they are less severe and more manageable, and they opt to repeat treatments as needed.
What is the difference between the O-Shot® and other PRP or stem cell injections?
The O-Shot® is a specific technique created by Dr. Charles Runels, and only those providers specifically trained in Vampire Treatments are using these techniques. PRP injected in the wrong way could result in ineffectiveness or worse. The name O-Shot® is protected by US Patent & Trademark Law, and only physicians who are members of the O-Shot® provider group are licensed to use the name and trusted to perform the procedure.
What is the difference between the O-Shot® and the G-Shot®?
The G-Shot® attempts to inject non-FDA approved filler into the G-spot to try to increase its size in an effort to enhance sensitivity and increase sexual friction. The G-Shot® can come with significant complications like granuloma, urethral stricture, bladder occlusion, and other structural damage. Also, since the G-spot may be different in each woman, accuracy of the injection may be difficult.
This is not to be confused with the O-Shot®, which uses your own PRP (growth factors) to increase blood flow to the clitoris and vaginal area and returning your tissue involved in sexual pleasure back to normal, healthy function. With the O-Shot®, we are just making your orgasm system naturally work better. There has never been a documented complication from the O-Shot®.
Is the O-Shot® Safe?
Absolutely! PRP is natural and comes from your own blood, allowing growth factors to rejuvenate and restore tissue and blood vessels. There is no chance of foreign body reaction, and therefore the procedure has no real risk of side effects or complications. Since the start of its use, there has never been a documented complication of this procedure in any medical literature.
