What is the Fem-Shot?
The Fem-shot treatment involves injecting the clitoris, labia, and G-spot with platelets, a substance in your blood that contains healing proteins called growth factors which are extracted from your own blood.
The shot works by using “high quality” Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) produced from the patient’s own blood. The PRP contains cell regenerating growth factors which, when injected into specific areas of the vagina, trigger stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue growth as well as help improve the vascularization of the area.
What is the procedure like?
The Fem-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the arm. This sample is then put into a special centrifuge to produce the Platelet-Rich Plasma. Once the PRP is extracted from the blood, it is injected into the numbed area near the clitoris and upper vagina.
Does the Fem-Shot injection hurt? How long does the procedure take?
Getting the Fem-Shot is usually painless. We numb the area with a gentle, cream-based product. Although every patient’s experience is different, most experience only minor discomfort. The injection feels like a slight pinch or warm sensation. There is no recovery time with this non-surgical procedure. It is quick and generally takes about 30 minutes to complete, including the numbing process.
Are there Fem-Shot Complications?
Most patients experience minimal to no side effects after receiving the shot; however, you may experience mild redness, swelling and/or numbness for the first few days to one week.
Patients have reported a range of positive effects from the shot including:
- Increased sensation
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- The ability to have an orgasm from penetrative sex when previously unable
- Younger and smoother skin of the vulva
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- Improvement in urinary incontinence
- Decreased pain for those experiencing painful sex
- Increased natural lubrication
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
How long does it take before I see results from an Fem-Shot?
You may experience an increase in sexual desire and pleasure immediately, but full results are usually enjoyed after 3 months. Generally, women will begin to experience heightened sensation in the first 3-7 days and new tissue will begin to develop over the next 3-9 weeks. This will peak around the 3-month mark.
How long does the Fem-Shot last?
Fem-Shot procedure results can vary depending on the patient, but they generally last between 14 and 18 months. On average, women repeat the procedure every 18 months.
