Everything You Need to Know About the O-Shot and M-Shot
Did you know that 10-15% of women have never had an orgasm…ever? And close to 50% of women are dissatisfied with the frequency of their orgasms. (MedlinePlus) Furthermore, studies demonstrate that 52% of men experience some form of ED (erectile dysfunction) throughout their lives. ED increases from 5%-15% from age 40 to 70. Although the risk of ED increases with age, it can occur in men at any age. (Healthline)
When sex isn’t enjoyable for partners, it can seem like more of a chore or stressor than something to strengthen a relationship. Intimacy is a vital part of life. Men and women shouldn’t have to deal with ED or OD. Fortunately, there are solutions available: The O-Shot® and M-Shot.
Orgasmic Dysfunction (OD)
Orgasmic dysfunction is when a woman either cannot reach orgasm or has trouble reaching orgasm when she is sexually excited. Sexual response involves the mind and body working together in a complex way, and both need to function well for an orgasm to happen.
Many factors can lead to problems reaching orgasm:
- A history of sexual abuse or rape
- Boredom in sexual activity or a relationship
- Fatigue and stress or depression
- Lack of knowledge about sexual function
- Negative feelings about sex
- Shyness or embarrassment
- Issues within the partnership
Health problems that can cause problems reaching orgasm include:
- Certain prescription drugs
- Hormonal disorders or changes, such as menopause
- Chronic illnesses that affect health and sexual interest
- Chronic pelvic pain, such as from endometriosis
- Damage to the nerves that supply the pelvis due to conditions such as multiple sclerosis, diabetic nerve damage, and spinal cord injury
- Spasm of the muscles surrounding the vagina that occurs against your will
- Vaginal dryness
If you are one of the many women who struggle with achieving orgasm, consider the benefits of O-Shot®.
The O-Shot® uses PRP (platelet-rich plasma) harnessed from the patient’s blood. The injection has been widely successful in treating a range of age-related symptoms. This PRP shot is inserted into the vagina and clitoris while the patient is under local anesthesia. The process is simple and virtually painless.
This treatment uses platelets from the blood that are nutrient-rich and have medically proven enhancement abilities. Besides treating vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence, the treatment also stimulates tissue growth and improves the health of sexual organs, and this contributes to a better orgasm.
What to Expect with the O-Shot
About 6-8 ccs of your blood will be drawn during your session. The blood is processed via spinning using a centrifuge and designated FDA-approved tubes. The PRP in the blood is enhanced and then extracted into a syringe.
Your practitioner will then numb the vaginal and clitoral region (numbing cream and local anesthesia) and inject a portion of the spun PRP into your clitoral glans.
The remaining ccs are injected under the vaginal skin around the G-spot area. The treatment only lasts for about 1 minute. More than one injection can be administered if the practitioner deems it necessary for your symptoms. Patients report either no pain or just a quick pricking sensation that subsides quickly.
The Benefits of the O-Shot
Patients have reported the following post-treatment benefits:
- Enhancement in libido and sexual desire
- Heightened vaginal and clitoral sensitivity contributes to stronger orgasms
- Decreased urinary incontinence
- Improved vaginal lubrication
- Reduction in pain during intercourse
- Increased ability to experience a G-Spot orgasm
- Enhancement of skin on the vulva
Sexual function improvements from the O-Shot® have been estimated in 75-95% of women! Within days after the treatment, most women report a noticeable improvement in their sexual arousal and orgasm intensity. The full effects of the treatment will most likely manifest after three months. Your doctor may suggest re-treatment if the initial results aren’t as pronounced.
The effects of the treatment last for anywhere between 1 to 4 years, and when this wanes, many patients opt for re-treatments.
Are Their Side Effects?
Since this treatment focuses on injecting the patient’s own PRP back into their system, complications, if any, are rare. However, since the PRP has to be processed after extraction, a sterile environment must be maintained throughout the procedure. The PRP cannot be contaminated, or it will be compromised.
These procedures are highly sensitive, so visit a trusted and licensed practitioner.
At this time, insurance does not cover the O-Shot® in most cases.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to maintain an erection firm enough for satisfying sexual activity. While occasionally having difficulty maintaining an erection is normal, your doctor may diagnose you with ED if it happens frequently and consistently disrupts your sex life.
Experts widely agree that ED is common and that the risk of developing ED increases with age. Some studies cite that ED is the most common form of sexual dysfunction that affects men.
Occasionally experiencing erection problems isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. And it doesn’t necessarily mean you have ED. The Cleveland Clinic estimates that having trouble getting or keeping an erection for up to 20 percent of sexual encounters is normal. Having trouble getting an erection more than 50 percent of the time can indicate a medical issue.
When a man becomes sexually excited, the muscles in the penis relax, and blood flow to the penis increases. Blood fills two chambers of spongy tissue that run along the length of the penis. ED occurs when there’s a problem with this process.
According to the Mayo Clinic, causes can be physical or mental and can include:
- alcohol use
- illicit drug use
- High cholesterol
- Heart disease
- Blocked blood vessel
- Some medications
- Sleep disorders
- Scar tissue inside the penis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Anxiety, stress, depression
- Issues within the partnership
Age is one of the primary risk factors for ED. While estimates vary, ED is generally more common among older men than younger men.
The M-Shot is a regenerative therapy that uses growth factors in the blood to stimulate the healing process in the penis. During this treatment, a sample of the patient’s blood will be drawn and spun in a centrifuge machine. This process concentrates the healing components in your blood into platelet-rich plasma (PRP). When injected into an area with dysfunction, PRP encourages the natural healing process to begin.
The M-Shot is natural since it’s the patient’s own cells. The body responds to the injections by treating it as a wound and goes to work repairing the tissue. Patients who receive the M-Shot can experience up to a 10-20 percent increase in girth and length. This procedure is done in the office and is relatively painless.
What to Expect with the M-Shot
The M-Shot begins with drawing a small amount of your blood, usually only about as much blood as you would give for a simple blood test. Then, using a specialized centrifuge, the stem cells and growth factors are separated from the red and white blood cells. What is left is the super-concentrated, super-healing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) that is the basis of this shot. PRP is a kind of stem cell therapy. It uses the healing power of stem cells to enhance your sexual performance. The M-Shot injects PRP directly into your penis using a tiny needle to regenerate muscle tissue and blood vessels.
The Benefits of the M-Shot
As healthy tissue returns to your penis, you can experience several benefits, including:
- Enhanced sensitivity
- Improved blood flow to the area
- Increased sexual stamina
- Stronger and firmer erections
- Increased length and girth of your penis
- Fewer chances of premature ejaculation
Although some men notice immediate benefits after having the shot, it usually takes at least three to four weeks to see changes, with maximum results around three months as healthy tissue returns to the area.
Are Their Side Effects?
No major adverse effects have been found. However, there have been few clinical trials, and the sample sizes have been small.
PRP is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction since the substance injected comes from your body. However, as with any injection, there’s always a risk of complications, such as:
- Nerve damage
- Pain, including at the injection site
- tissue damage
Most insurance companies don’t cover this procedure.
