Dr. John Hettiarachchi is one of a few physicians specially trained, certified and licensed to administer this revolutionary new treatment. The O-Shot uses the patient’s own blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate the female orgasm system. This allows more blood flow to the organ, enhancing sensitivity and delivering dramatic improvement in sexual function.

Dr. Hetttiarachchi will work with you and design a treatment plan that delivers results and lasting benefits. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Hettiarachchi to find out if the O-Shot is right for you!

Frequently Asked Questions About the O-shot

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot®™ or orgasm shot is a simple, nonsurgical procedure that uses the growth factors each woman has in her own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the Orgasm System. Female sexual dysfunction is not a small problem: 50% of women experience some degree of low libido and dysfunction.

The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets are separated and concentrated. The Platelet Rich Plasma containing growth factors extracted from your blood is then injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for the sexual response (the “o-spot”). These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection, causing patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure.

How is O-Shot different than the G-Shot?

The G-Shot involves injecting hyaluronic acid (foreign material) directly into the Grafenberg spot (G-Spot) in the vaginal wall. This increases friction and stimulation to the G-Spot thereby enhancing sexual response to those who are able to achieve orgasm by vaginal stimulation.

The O-Shot, on the other hand, utilizes your bodies own PRP (platelet rich plasma) which is injected, painlessly, into your anterior vaginal wall and the clitoris which also enhances clitoral stimulation and response. PRP allows for rejuvenation of your tissues, nerves and vascular structures which in turn improve sensation and strengthen orgasmic response.  Additional reported benefits include improvement in painful intercourse and urinary symptoms including urinary incontinence. Complimentary benefit can be obtained by combining laser vaginal resurfacing and PRP therapy for maximal rejuvenation of urinary, vaginal and orgasmic function.

How Does the O-Shot® Work?

The doctor injects the PRP into an area called the “O-Spot” –a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. The process of injecting trigger the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the unipotent stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become “younger” with improved functional potential.

Women often enjoy some effects of the O-Shot® almost immediately, as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response. Women receiving O-Shot® procedure have reported an increase in their sexual response within days and weeks of the treatment – and for many, the increase is dramatic.

Is it still possible to receive the O-Shot while menstruating?

During the menstrual cycle, as long as they are not heavy or especially sensitive, the O-shot can be administered. It should be avoided if there is a vaginal or bladder infection.

What would you suggest for stress urinary incontinence in my case - O-shot, FemiLift or other?

Unfortunately your vagina tissue/ pelvic area is probably very thin and damaged from the radiation/ surgery. In your case, the cystocele repair may possibly be repaired vaginally with your own tissue or using augmentation (support) with Cadaveric dermis.

The stress urinary incontinence probably will not improve with another urethral bulking agent. I suggest considering a pubovaginal sling which uses your fascia for support of the mid urethra. I have seen great results with our radiation patients who have had this surgery.

I have also treated complicated radiation patients with the MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser with significant improvement in vaginal lubrication and incontinence. If you are considering laser technology, it is important to find a Physician who has extensive experience in the laser technology so that energy and depth can be titrated to your particular tissue needs. The radiofrequency (THERMva) is another option which may help improve some of your incontinence.

As a urologist with subspecialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstruction Surgery I recommend finding a physician who has this experience and all the technologies available.
