O-Shot: Are there any side effects?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

There are no known major side effects from the use of PRP for vaginal rejuvenation. Since an injection is involved localized bleeding, swelling and pain that lingers for awhile is possible,  as well as urinary tract infections. All of which can easily be treated. Some women have reported vaginal sensitivity and  sustained and excessive  orgasms at the slightest stimulation.

Side effects are generally related to the injection which are mild pain and swelling.  It is generally very well tolerated with no downtime.

Fortunately, there have been no significant side effects reported in all the countries where the procedure is performed.  Potential side effects include temporary vaginal spotting, hypersensitivity or excessive orgasms, yeast infection and urinary tract infection. The procedure works about 80% of the time.

The O-Shot has a low incidence of side-effects

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The O-Shot involves two simple injections of your own PRP activated with natural calcium chloride.  One is given at the base of the clitoris and the other into the anterior vaginal wall.  The needles used for these injections are very small.  As such, while bleeding and bruising are possible complications, these occur rarely although patients taking anticoagulants and Omega-3 are at some degree of higher risk for bleeding.  There is also a theoretical risk of urinary tract injection although i have not yet seen one in my practice. The most likely "adverse" outcome is excessive lubrication with sexual arousal.

Since the O-Shot involves PRP injection to the vaginal area, and PRP is derived from your own blood, there are no long term ill effects or side effects of the O-Shot injection at all. It is a very safe procedure, but some immediate side effects could be pain on injection and bruising/ swelling of the area

Are there side effects from the O-Shot?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The local anesthesia protocol that we use combining topical and injected lidocaine has produced minimal discomfort for our patients.     The O-Shot uses the body's plasma rich platelets (PRP) which is your own biologics and there have been no reported complications from the O-Shot.    Hyper-libido has been reported in a young patient but it did resolve on its own.    Most of the injection site discomfort resolves in a couple of days.   After the O-Shot  patients can resume sexual activity but avoid direct clitoral stimulation until the discomfort resolves.

There is little to no downtime with the O-Shot. With any injection you are at risk for infection, bruising, bleeding and/or swelling to the site. Because the O-Shot is using your own plasma, it is very safe to inject. My patients report minimal to no discomfort following the procedure.

Cheers!

Thank you for your question.  The O-shot is a very safe procedure as you are injecting your own plasma into the vaginal area.  There are complications associated with any procedure involving a needle (bruising, swelling, possible hematoma) and associated with a lack of understanding of the underlying anatomy.  I would recommend that you visit with a surgeon who is experience with this procedure and who understands the anatomy to minimize the risk of any adverse effects.

Minimal

Since it is your own plasma, minimal to no side effects.  Complications as with any procedure include injection site irritation, infection, damage to neighboring structures, swelling, damage to urethra, etc.  Make sure you go to a certified O-shot provider!
