How does the O-Shot differ from the G-Shot?

Do either of these procedures address Stress Urinary Incontinence in addition to potentially increasing sexual pleasure? How long do the effects of these treatments last? Thank you :))

O-Shot vs. G-Shot and Treatments for Stress Incontinence

The G-Shot uses hyaluronic acid injected directly into the area of the G-Spot to "amplify" it, which can improve sensation and make it easier to achieve orgasm.

The O-Shot uses PRP (platelet rich plasma), which is derived from the patients blood. Blood is drawn (just like any blood draw) and the blood is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. This PRP contains several natural growth factors and cytokines that can help to stimulate collagen production and restore tissue to a more youthful state. With the O-Shot, the PRP is injected into the clitoris and the anterior wall of the vagina. There can be some benefit for incontinence, lubrication, and sensation with this procedure, however I strongly feel there are better options for this.

It is my opinion that the best combination for addressing both increased sexual satisfaction with improvements in stress urinary incontinence is the Fotona Incontilase procedure (instead of O-Shot) combined with the G-Shot. The Incontilase Procedure uses short laser pulses create photo-thermal stimulation, resulting in tightening of the connective tissue around the vagina wall, urethral orifice, vestibule and anterior bladder wall. The shrinking and tightening of the vaginal and pelvic floor tissues results in greater support to the bladder and urethra, and the return of normal continence function. The Incontilase procedure has the added benefit of some tightening of the vaginal canal, but if you want to further tighten the vaginal canal you could also look into the Intimalase procedure, which uses the same laser but in a different manner that is specifically designed to tighten the vagina by an average of 17%. The G-Shot is a great accompaniment to these laser treatments and can yield the results I think you are looking for.

So in summary...
G-Shot: Heightened G-Spot Sensation
Incontilase: Treatment for Urinary Stress Incontinence
Intimalase: Vaginal Tightening (avg of 17%) and Increased Vaginal Sensation

Hope this helps.

O-Shot and G-Shot very different

The G-shot is a trademarked name by Dr. David Matlock in Beverly Hills for a specific type of collagen filler injected into the g-spot area. It only takes a few minutes in the office and it's specific purpose is to enhance orgasms by making it easier to hit that enlarged g-spot during intercourse.  The trademarked G-shot lasts about 4 months.

The O-Shot on the other hand is a completely different type of shot. It is an office procedure made of platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood. The O-Shot is injected into several areas both outside and inside the vagina and the prp starts to rejuvenate and regenerate the tissue (takes about 2-3 weeks to start working). Women that have had the O-Shot do report some improvement of their stress urinary incontinence as well as enhanced orgasm, vaginal pain, increased natural lubrication and libido. The O-Shot is also a trademarked name by Dr. Runels and a doctor must be trained to administer this shot and use the name.

I have been offering the G-Shot for 7 years and the O-Shot for over a year with great results. We also offer a GO-Shot which is a combination of both.

G-shot vs. O-Shot explained

The G-Shot involves injecting hyaluronic acid (foreign material) directly into in a highly sensitive zone in the vaginal wall or the G-Spot (yes it does exist). By plumping up this area, it 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 is obtained from your own blood through a very specific process. Injection of PRP delivers growth factors that allow 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.

O shot

Thank you for sharing.  We started performing the O Shot in our practice a few months ago and are loving the results our patients are getting.
The O Shot uses your bodies own rejuvenating factors called platelets.  These cells are powerful rejuvenating cells which contain growth factors that help to rejuvenate tissue and increase blood flow.
The O Shot helps to improve the symptoms of urinary stress Incontinence, vaginal atrophy and heightened orgasms.

Best of luck:)

O-shot vs G-shot

The O-shot is a procedure that uses your own platelets to help with symptoms of urinary incontinence and sexual function.  It is injected around the clitoris and around the urethra.  The G-shot uses dermal fillers (e.g. Voluma, Juvederm) to enhance the sensitivity of the G-spot region and may also have similar effects on enhancing sensitivity during sex.  If you are considering a procedure for the Stress Urinary Incontinence, then I would recommend that you consider the O-shot.

Different injections

The O-shot uses a proprietary method to inject into clitoris and certain point around the vagina.  It uses PRP or your own plasma.  The G-shot is inside the vagina and usually uses filler.  I do the O-shot in my practice.

The O-Shot Uses PRP

The G-Shot™ injection was developed by using a filler (hyaluronic acid) injected to the area of the vagina known as the “G-spot” to enhance sexual satisfaction. This worked for many women, but requires touch-up treatments, as the body naturally breaks down the product.


The O-Shot ™ was developed by using your own PRP (Platelet rich plasma) to help regenerate and stimulate the structures in and around the vagina. While this is also injected, treatments are in the external glans area and the vaginal wall. This treatment will usually help treat incontinence-related issues and will also increase pleasure with intimacy and typically only requires 1 or 2 treatments!   

Historically, our practice likes to use the benefits of ThermiVa (temperature controlled radiofrequency) with the O-Shot™ to maximize the results for our patients.  This combination procedure, Thermi-O, has offered our patients amazing results without the risks or downtime associated with lasers and surgery.

Gshot vs Oshot- do they work for leakage??

The Gshot is an injection of a filler (similar to Juvaderm) into the Gspot inside the vagina. It plumps the area up and makes it easier to find for and more sensitive. The Oshot utilizes PRP (from your own blood) and is injected into the Gspot and under the clitoris itself... For the same reasons as above, however since the Oshot also treats the clitoral area, clitoral sensation may also improve. NEITHER treatment will address SUI (even if they make claims as such) and depending on the severity of your urinary leakage you will need additional treatment with either a surgical procedure (such as a non-mesh laparoscopic Burch) or if more mild ThermiVa nonsurgical rejuvenation may be an excellent option and boost the sexual benefits of the Oshot!!

The G-shot does not address urinary incontinence

The G-shot does not provide control of urinary incontinence. Certain types of incontinence are treated by filler injections designed to compress the bladder neck, but they are injected deeper and do not create the same effect. You can certainly have a G-shot after an incontinence procedure, but should avoid doing it soon beforehand because it may interfere with the procedure.

Neither help incontinence

As a gynecologist and urogynecologist, there are myriad other treatments, often covered by insurance, which are specifically designed for stress urinary incontinence which we perform.  I recommend a consultation with a gyne who may recommend urodynamics studies and a detailed analysis of the vagina with POP-Q to determine the best course of action for your care.  The G and O shots are specifically designed to enhance sexual gratification, nothing more.  Hope you've found some answers here!
