Women come to The Guyer Institute to restore and re-experience how they felt and looked when they were younger. That includes sexual energy and satisfaction. While we generally help to achieve this with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), some women still need an extra boost. This boost comes in the form of the revolutionary new O-Shot ® procedure.
We offer this procedure our office using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to rejuvenate vaginal tissue and enhance sexual response. This procedure may also help with mild incontinence.
PRP includes blood plasma with a concentration of platelets and other growth factors. To prepare PRP, we take blood from a patient and spin it in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components. Then, we retrieve these platelets and re-inject them into the selected areas of the patient.
This procedure offers a simple, quick, and relatively painless process. Some women achieve instantaneous results, but for the majority of women, it takes several weeks to achieve the full effects. After the procedure, you can immediately resume normal activities, including your preferred sexual activities.
Although each woman’s experience varies, we have included a list of some things that patients experience after having vaginal rejuvenation injections:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Younger, smoother skin around the vagina
- A tighter vaginal opening
- Stronger orgasm
- More frequent orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Increased natural lubrication
- Decreased urinary incontinence

The Woman’s 4 “Sex-Pleasure Problems” the Sad Reason Doctors Stay Silent
- Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (usually but not always accompanies Sexual Desire Disorder). Women who suffer with this may want to have sex but have much difficulty finding the pleasure of arousal. The 5% incidence doesn’t sound like much until you think about it–that’s the same as one in 20!
- Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (Low desire). Remember, that unless it’s disrupting the woman’s life doesn’t count as a disorder. Around 10% of women suffer with this problem. Important: Suffering with a sexual disorder does not simply make sex not fun. Better sex leads to more energy, more creativity, increased confidence, less depression, and improved overall health.
- Female Orgasmic Disorder: Again around 1 in 20 (or 5%). Here women can become aroused but have much difficulty with orgasm. This becomes so frustrating that sex becomes a frustration that they avoid.
- Dyspareunia: Here the woman suffers real pain with sex (not from decreased lubrication or vaginal spasm). The incidence occurs in around 1 in 10 to 1 in 5 women. (The above shocking statistics came from Obstetrics & Gynecology April 2011)
- Genital Mismatch contributes to both Female Orgasmic Disorder & to Dyspareunia
According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, an estimated 50 million American women suffer from decreased libido or other sexual health issues.
For years, most of these women suffered in silence, either because they were too embarrassed to speak to their doctors, or because they found no help available.
The O-Shot changed all of that.
The O-Shot: an all-natural, safe and effective treatment, uses your own blood and your body’s own natural healing ability to improve sexual satisfaction.
With the O-Shot, you can expect:
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- Increased lubrication
- Increased sexual desire, and improved stimulation
- A tighter vaginal opening
The O-Shot uses a revolutionary, clinically proven medical technique known as Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy – or PRP.
What does the Procedure Entail?
The O-Shot injection starts with drawing a few vials of blood. We separate the plasma containing the PRP from the red and white blood cells using a centrifuge. Then, we inject the O-Shot into the areas involved with sensitivity, stimulation, and obtaining and maintaining an orgasm. Since a local anesthetic is applied first, the series of injections are given with little or no discomfort.
The growth factors within the O-shot get right to work to increase blood flow to the vaginal area, resulting in smoother, heathier, skin on the lips of the vagina, a tighter vaginal opening, increased natural lubrication, improved libido, and an overall more youthful appearance.
Soon after their first O-Shot treatment, patients have reported:
- Increased sensitivity
- Improved ability to reach orgasm
- Longer and more orgasms
- Reduced vaginal dryness
- An end to pain with intercourse
- Increased sexual desire
- A “feeling of being young again”
O-Shot Frequently Asked Questions
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP Therapy, a revolutionary technique, uses the healing and growth factors in your own blood to reduce pain and inflammation, and to heal and rejuvenate.
What is the O-Shot?
The O-Shot is a proprietary PRP procedure designed to improve sexual wellness and sexual dysfunction for women.
Do the injections hurt?
We use both a topical and injectable local anesthetic at the O-Shot injection sites, so any discomfort is kept to a minimum.
How long do the effects of the O-Shot® last?
Individual results can vary, as do the results for different treatments, however O-Shot patients have had effects that last for a year or more. The treatment may be repeated as needed got each individual patient’s needs.
Is the O-Shot® safe?
Absolutely! Since the O-Shot uses the patient’s own blood, it is one of the safest, and most side-effect free medical procedures ever to be developed.
Other Sexual Health Options for Women Compared to The O-SHOT
O-Shot Vs. Addyi
While Addyi received approval, it currently holds many restrictions. Similar to men’s pharmaceutical options, Addyi can produce numerous dangerous side effects and was currently released with the agency’s “boxed warning,” its most serious precaution.
The side effects of Addyi include:
- Potential dangerous drops in blood pressure
Because the O-Shot is made from your own blood, it has no known side-effects.
With Addyi, you need to remember to take pills, while the O-Shot’s effect can last for up to a year or more. Individual results may vary.
Addyi allegedly works by increasing a women’s desire to engage in sexual activity. It does nothing for vaginal dryness, lack of sensitivity, or painful intercourse. The O-Shot can cure all of these things, and so much more!
Additional Information about PRP and the Science behind it:

“During the past several years, much has been written about a preparation called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and its potential effectiveness in the treatment of injuries.
Many famous athletes — Tiger Woods, tennis star Rafael Nadal, and several others — received PRP for various problems, such as sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. These types of conditions have typically been treated with medications, physical therapy, or even surgery. Some athletes have credited PRP with their being able to return more quickly to competition.
Even though PRP has received extensive publicity, there are still lingering questions about it, such as:
- What exactly is platelet-rich plasma?
- How does it work?
- What conditions are being treated with PRP?
- Is PRP treatment effective?
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)?
Although blood mainly contains liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which play an important role in the healing of injuries.
PRP essentially means plasma with many more platelets than what we typically find in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — may include 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
To develop a PRP preparation, we must first draw blood from a patient. Next, we separate platelets from other blood cells and increase their concentration during a process called centrifugation. Finally, we combone the increased concentration of platelets with the remaining blood.
How Does PRP Work?
Although we are not exactly clear how PRP works, laboratory studies show that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP potentially speeds up the healing process.
In order to speed healing, we treat the injury site with the PRP preparation. We can do this in one of two ways:
- We can carefully inject PRP into the injured area. For example, in Achilles tendonitis, a condition commonly seen in runners and tennis players, the heel cord can become swollen, inflamed, and painful. We can inject a mixture of PRP and local anesthetic directly into this inflamed tissue. Afterwards, the pain at the area of injection may actually increase for the first week or two. It may be several weeks before the patient feels a beneficial effect.
- In addition, we can also use PRP to improve healing after surgery for some injuries. For example, an athlete with a completely torn heel cord may require surgery to repair the tendon. We can possibly improve healing of the torn tendon by treating the injured area with PRP during surgery. We do this by preparing the PRP in a special way that allows us to actually stitch it into torn tissues.
What Conditions can you Treat with PRP Effectively?
Scientists continue to conduct research to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP treatment. At this time, the results of these studies remain inconclusive because the effectiveness of PRP therapy can vary. Factors influencing the effectiveness of PRP treatment include:
- The area of the body being treated
- The overall health of the patient
- Whether the injury is acute (such as from a fall) or chronic (an injury developing over time)
Chronic Tendon Injuries
According to the research studies currently reported, PRP is most effective in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries, especially tennis elbow, a very common injury of the tendons on the outside of the elbow.
The use of PRP for other chronic tendon injuries — such as chronic Achilles tendonitis or inflammation of the patellar tendon at the knee (jumper’s knee) remains promising. However, it is difficult to say at this time that PRP therapy offers more effectiveness than traditional treatment of these problems.
Acute Ligament and Muscle Injuries
Much of the publicity around PRP therapy involves the treatment of acute sports injuries, such as ligament and muscle injuries. Phsycians have been using PRP to treat professional athletes with common sports injuries like pulled hamstring muscles in the thigh and knee sprains. No definitive scientific evidence, however, proves that PRP therapy actually improves the healing process in these types of injuries.
Scientists continue to conduct research to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP in the treatment of the arthritic knee. However, it remains too soon to determine if this form of treatment offers any further effectiveness than current treatment methods.
Treatment with PRP could hold promise. However, few current research studies back up the claims in the media. Although PRP does appear effective in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries about the elbow, the medical community needs more scientific evidence before it can determine whether PRP therapy remains truly effective in other conditions.
Even though the success of PRP therapy stands questionable, it involves minimal risks. These include increased pain at the injection site, but the incidence of other problems — infection, tissue damage, nerve injuries — may offer no difference from symptoms associated with cortisone injections.
