What Is the O-Shot?
For a number of women, a decreased libido, vaginal dryness, and similar concerns are common problems faced throughout the aging process. At Johnson Family Medical, we offer a rejuvenating solution called the O-Shot, which uses a patient's own platelet-rich blood plasma (PRP) to stimulate collagen production in vaginal tissues. The O-Shot can help counteract vaginal laxity following childbirth, enhance bladder control affected by incontinence, and increase sexual arousal in women, among providing other benefits. This PRP treatment is administered by certified nurse injector Anne Bechtold who is trained and credentialed by the Cellular Medicine Association to provide the O-Shot for Frisco, TX patients. She can review your needs and help you decide if the O-Shot is right for you.

How Does the O-Shot Procedure Work?
The O-Shot is a very quick outpatient procedure performed at Johnson Family Medical. A small sample of your blood will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, which contains potent growth factor components. These nutrients will then be carefully injected into the vaginal area, initiating the production of new collagen and healthy cells. Many Frisco, TX women who receive the O-Shot experience an improvement in vaginal laxity and enhanced sexual stimulation and sensation, along with other benefits.
Does the O-Shot® hurt?
Most patients will experience little to no discomfort during the O-Shot® injection process. Some report a slight pinch, stinging, or warming feeling. We use a numbing cream or local anesthetic on the target area to help minimize any possible discomfort you may feel.
How long does it take for the O-Shot® to start working?
It takes some time for the stem cells to grow, starting around three weeks. The full effects can be expected to be felt within two to three months.
Are there any side effects to the O-Shot®?
As with any injection, there may be some soreness at the injection site and a small amount of bleeding, but this usually lasts for only 24 hours.
Most patients will have little to no side effects from the O-Shot®, however, in some cases, there have been reported effects including spontaneous orgasm, sexual arousal during urination, ejaculatory orgasm, continuous sexual arousal, sensitivity, or a slight burning or itching sensation. Of those who reported these effects, most were temporary.
Some reported decreased sensation for a few days up to a few weeks after the procedure but these effects were also transitory.
Most patients can have intercourse 24 hours after the procedure, however, you should be aware of your body and the healing process. Your doctor will help recommend the best course of action post-procedure.
How long do the O-Shot® effects last?
Results can vary for every patient, but most report continued effects for one to three years. Many women chose to have a refresher procedure every 18 months to maintain results.
