Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

Minimally Invasive Options

As women go through childbearing, hormonal changes and aging, they can experience changes in their genitalia. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help to reverse these changes.

What are the 'O' and the 'G' shots?

The term "O-Shot" is a registered trademark that is short for "Orgasm" shot. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which is taken from your own blood, is injected in the clitoris and in the vagina in the area of the Grafenburg spot, or "G-Spot," the erotic zone within the vagina in the proximity of the urethra. It is repeated annually. The "G-Shot" is another trademarked term that refers to the injection of filler into the G-Spot, repeated every three to five months. With usage of the names of these treatments restricted, physicians may refer to these or similar treatments under different terminology.

Are these shots done with anesthesia?

Topical anesthesia and ice are typically used to numb the area, and injections can contain local anesthesia.

Is pain medication necessary after the injection?

Patients typically do not experience pain afterward.

Do these shots enhance sexual pleasure?

The preliminary evidence indicates that these shots can enhance the orgasms of some women. However, in the woman who has never achieved orgasm, they are unlikely to help. As with many treatments in the growing field of female genital procedures, we will have a greater understanding of their effectiveness when we have rigorous scientific studies.
