About the Procedure
Procedures and treatments for women’s sexual health are becoming increasingly popular and readily available. From radio frequency treatments to tighten vaginal walls, to labiaplasty procedures, more and more options are accessible to treat a variety of women’s sexual health issues. Women who have difficulty achieving an orgasm may benefit from the G-Shot procedure. The G-Shot procedure injects hyaluronic acid into the Grafenberg spot, more commonly referred to as the “G-spot”. The G-spot is a sensitive area of the anterior vaginal wall that some women enjoy having stimulated during sexual activity. Injecting hyaluronic acid within the G-spot is intended to increase the sensitivity of the area, making it easier to achieve an orgasm. During treatment, the woman will lay on a table with legs in stirrups, similar to when receiving a Pap smear. The doctor, typically a gynecologist, will do a pelvic exam to determine the location of the G-spot with the patient’s assistance. A special speculum will be inserted into the vagina to inject a local anesthetic to the vaginal wall. Based on the pelvic exam, the hyaluronic acid will then be injected into the location of the G-spot. The typical products used for G-Shot include Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm. A tampon may be worn after the procedure to prevent any spot bleeding from the needle injections. Normal sexual activity can be resumed 4 hours after treatment.
The goal of the G-Shot is to stimulate the tissue around the "g-spot" and vaginal walls to increase sensitivity, improving sexual arousal and gratification.
