Questions about the O-Shot® Procedure (and on-going research)

1. Does the PRP always come from the patient's own blood?

Always Always ALWAYS the PRP comes from the patient’s own blood.  And the FDA approved kits are disposable, so we are always using a new kit to prepare the blood and then throw that kit away before we treat the next woman. Most of us even process the blood in the same room with the patient so that they can see that it’s always their blood.  Hence, there is zero chance of them catching something from another person.


2. What year did the O-Shot originate and how many professionals have been trained to give it in the US?

Dr. Runels did the first O-Shot alone with his lover in early 2011 (after first treating many faces and treating his own penis (with the Priapus Shot® procedure) and the penis of other men—the anatomy and cell biology of the penis mirror the clitoris). Since then, over 1,000 physicians in the US alone representing most states (and other providers in over 50 countries) have been trained, and he's trained faculty from 5 different medical schools in the US alone.

Faculty of the Cellular Medicine Association (click to see) have trained many more physicians world-wide.

3. I've read about complications if PRP in general isn't prepared correctly, but what are the potential side-effects related to the O-Shot?

2 Parts to this answer.

1. Serious side effects (infection, granuloma, scaring, death) do NOT happen (at least none reported after MILLIONS of PRP injections). 

Anything can happen anytime. And no procedure is perfect (even antibiotics fail 1 in 5 times for those hospitalized with pneumonia). Also, the most simple of procedures can lead to complications. Patients can crash their car driving to the office…so just driving to the doctor’s office has a risk. But, if someone saw a life-threatening reaction to PRP—anywhere it may be injected other than the eye—it would be the first reported case.
Another important point...we are creating a "hematoma" of sorts by injecting blood into an area. This is not a drug, like morphine where the cells of the body start reacting differently, This procedure encourages healthy tissue growth.
During the first phase there can be side effects (good and bad) from the fluid injected and the resultant vasodilitation etc.
The actual benefits from the procedure happen with new cell growth which takes 3 to 12 WEEKS or more (in orthopedic procedures the full effects can be 6 to 12 MONTHS).
So, both side effects and benefits are likely to be temporary until the 12 week mark, then you have a better idea of the effects of the procedure. Even after that, there can be continued changed due to remodeling of the tissue prompted by the PRP.
Any benefits, problems, or side-effects seen in the first 3 weeks, are likely to be from the PRP injected ---which all goes away!  It's the effects of the new cell growth that provide the lasting effects.
.
Of the over 9,000 research papers published on PubMed (click to see) about PRP, there has been no serious life-threatening side effects in any of those papers, which makes sense because you’re injecting the blood component that’s normally made to repair tissue. So, we are injecting what the body would normally make to recover from surgery. Regen alone (one of the suppliers of FDA-approved PRP prep kits) sells over one MILLION kits per year—so the number of procedures being done in general number in the millions.
With the numbers of procedures being done, the safety profile is shockingly very very good.  For example, in comparison with PRP, three THOUSAND people per year die from bleeding from aspirin (click).
2. We have seen a variety of less serious (nonlife threatening) side effects with the O-Shot® [Orgasm Shot®] procedure.
a. Women with recurrent vaginal herpes see the frequency and severity of recurrence go DOWN (they suffer less). The "side effect' here is a GOOD effect. This decrease in outbreaks makes sense because PRP enhances the body’s immune system against foreign pathogens. The platelet activation is normally a part of the wound healing process, so it makes sense that there’s intelligence about the response (not a simple-minded growth of whatever’s there like if you throw fertilizer on your lawn).  This goes along with the fact that those with acromegaly and abnormally high levels of growth hormone have 25% less cancer than the general population. There are healing effects in the growth factors that make the results good from normal tissue and detrimental to pathogens and abnormal tissue (hence the effect of helping scars go away by remodeling the tissue back to a more normal configuration click).
b. Some women see hyper-sexuality that can be very very intense requiring almost constant sexual activity and not relieved well by orgasm. This happens in less than 1% and has never persisted more than a few days.
c. We’ve seen 6 or so reported cases (in over 50,000 procedures) of decreased ability to have and orgasm. We think this is happening from the effects of the edema caused by the injection. PRP has been shown to heal nerve tissue (click to read), so the PRP should not be damaging to the sensation. Is there micro damage in these women from the needle? Possibly, but not likely since there are multiple small nerve fibers, not one main nerve in the area we inject.  Could the decreased sensation in these six women be related to something else going on with the woman? For example, one woman said the procedure caused back pain, but on a closer interview, it turns out that she and her husband were having such vigorous sex after the shot from her improved libido that she had a muscle injury that got better with a few days rest.  Another woman thought the procedure CAUSED urinary incontinence, but on a closer interview, she simply had ejaculation with orgasm for the first time.  Still, for some reason, we’ve seen sensation go DOWN instead of up in 6 reported cases, In all cases except one, the sensation came back to normal after 3-12 weeks.
d. The development of ejaculation with some orgasms.
e. Urgency, and frequency of urination for a few days.
f. Pain during injection. Usually, we can keep the pain at or near zero, but sometimes, just like at the dentist, the anesthetic may not be perfect.
g. Spotting after the injection. It IS and injection in the vaginal opening—where there’s much blood flow—so we she may see a few spots of blood.
h. Sexual arousal with urination for a few days.
i. There can be a change in the relationship. When a woman’s libido goes up, if her partner is not healthy, there can become a mismatch in sexual libido. If she now wants to have sex more than her partner, that can cause some tension. Better sex does not always mean a more peaceful relationship, though with most couples it does help.
j. There may be something unexpected happen that we’ve not yet seen. So, we have a consent form that includes mostly possible side effects that we’ve not seen.
k. If the woman is being treated for sexual problems and suffers with urinary incontinence, she will often see the "side effect" of the urinary incontinence going away.
l. If a woman receives the O-Shot® for treatment of urinary incontinence, she will often see the side effect of increased sex drive and increased intensity and increased frequency of orgasm (unlike a mid-urethral sling which can sometimes damage the nerves and decrease orgasmic ability and intensity).

Research

Not all women will qualify for this research project. Please consider helping if you do qualify.

Filling out the following form applies you for the option to participate in a double blind placebo controlled study of the use of the O-Shot® for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction. Your treatment, should you be accepted, will be free. Your information will never be shared. If you qualify, you may be contacted by text message or by phone.

This previous pilot study showed benefit (click to see) but we need more detailed data with a placebo-controlled study (which is the purpose of the present study).

We need more research to help women cure sexual dysfunction. There will be other projects; filling out this form tells us that you may be interested in participating (not all will qualify for this study but we will notify you of future studies). Become a hero to your daughters and nieces and to all women of future generations by helping us with this research.

  1. I am a very sexual female. My partner and I have sex more often than most younger couples. I enjoy it tremendously but never have a sexual orgasm and rarely have a manual orgasm which is frustrating and leaves me wondering what is wrong with me. Of course it also leaves my partner wondering why he can’t satisfy me. I would love any help that you can provide. Thank you in advance for for your response.
