Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, can be injected around the clitoris and within the vaginal walls to increase sensitivity and sexual pleasure in a procedure called the O-Shot. PRP is rich in growth platelets which helps to stimulate blood flow and cell growth where injected.

About the Procedure
Platelet rich plasma is derived from patient blood and is rich in growth platelets. PRP has been used to treat a variety of issues including hair loss, acne scarring, wrinkles, as well as sexual health issues. The O-Shot is an injection of PRP into the vaginal walls, clitoris, or clitoral hood. The PRP injection encourages blood flow and cell growth to the area and can increase sensitivity during sex. Before treatment, blood will be drawn from the patient’s arm and placed within a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the red blood cells. Once prepared, the PRP will be injected around various erogenous zones such as the clitoris and inner vaginal walls. Once the injection is complete, the patient will be able to resume all normal activity, including sexual intercourse. There may be a feeling of fullness within the vagina which should gradually resolve over the course of 1-3 days. Although PRP is approved by the FDA for certain uses, PRP is not approved for use in improving sexual health.
The goal of the O-Shot is to stimulate growth of new tissue and blood flow around the clitoris and vaginal walls to increase sensitivity.
What to Expect
The O-Shot is an injection of platelet rich plasma in and around erogenous zones of the vagina to improve sexual arousal and orgasm. Here is a quick guide for what to expect before, during, and after an O-Shot treatment.
No special measures need to be taken before treatment with the O-Shot.
- Blood will be drawn from the patient’s arm
- Blood placed in centrifuge to separate the PRP
- PRP injected around various erogenous zones
Following an O-Shot procedure there is no downtime for the patient. All normal activities, including sex, can be resumed the same day. Patients may feel a sense of fullness within the vagina which will subside over 1-3 days. While the vagina is swollen, the urine stream may spray, which will resolve once the swelling is gone. Minor bleeding may occur for 1-2 days.
The ideal candidates for the O-Shot are women who experience difficulty achieving sexual climax and/or have urinary incontinence.
Not Recommended For
O-Shot is not recommended for patients who are seeking to treat pyschosexual dysfunctions such as inability to achieve orgasm or low sex drive.
Side effects of the O-Shot can include bleeding, constant awareness of injection sites, a sensation of always being sexually aroused, constant vaginal wetness, hematoma or bruising, hematuria, alteration of vaginal sensations, hypersexuality (over active sex drive), and overall varied results.
