The O-Shot

At Wellness by Design, we offer The O-Shot®, a cutting-edge injection that can help improve your sexual health and wellness. This minimally-invasive treatment involves injecting your own blood's platelets into the vaginal area to stimulate the growth of new tissue and blood vessels. Your blood's platelets contain growth factors that promote collagen formation, tissue scaffolding, and neovascularization.


The O-Shot can dramatically improve symptoms associated with urinary incontinence. Additionally, the O-Shot® can help increase intercourse, and sexual desire, enhance orgasm intensity and frequency, improve vaginal lubrication, and reduce pain during intercourse. Our team of experts can help you determine if The O-Shot® is right for you and create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.


Whether you're looking to improve your sexual health or address specific concerns, The O-Shot® can help you reclaim your confidence and enjoy a healthier, more satisfying sex life.

55-Year-Old Woman, Shelby, NC

"I hope it lasts FOREVER! Let me begin by telling you the reason I wanted the O Shot. 

I am 55 years old, and I've been experiencing vaginal dryness, painful intercourse (which I had no desire), and bladder leakage for some time. I have a history of Uterine fibroids, so I am not a candidate for hormone replacement therapy, which would have been the perfect solution for my women's health issues. 


Currently, I am three weeks post O Shot, and I'm already seeing results. 


Day 1: The procedure day, I was nervous, as if I were going to have a pap smear. Mind over matter, right? I knew I had a lot to gain in the coming weeks if this shot really works. 


The nerves started to go away, and I felt more relaxed as the nurse and Dr. Zuniga explained everything, step by step, as the procedure began. First, the numbing, and then I just laid back and relaxed until the platelet rich plasma was ready to be injected. Next, was the dreaded shot, that I never even felt. Just like they had explained, I didn't feel a thing, and in my opinion, that was success. Immediately, I experienced more vaginal moisture that I had not had in a few years, and I was one happy lady. I couldn't wait to see what was next. 


Week 2: At the end of week two, the incontinence seemed to be getting better. Hallelujah, I sneezed several times, and I did not dribble at all. Wow, I was so excited because I wasn't supposed to see results for this until the sixth or eighth week. Once again, I was one happy lady. 


Week 3: Oh my goodness, I feel like I am in my prime again. I have had no sexual desire (because of the dryness, and pain) in several years, and I just can't believe the difference. Let's just say,  my husband is one happy man. 


So far, my results have been better than I expected, and yes, I would definitely do it again. Thank you, Dr. Zuniga!"


Urinary Incontinence

It is extremely common for women to experience urinary incontinence after experiencing childbirth. It is even more common when a woman loses internal vaginal wall collagen support as they age. While some women have extreme symptoms requiring surgery, medications or other treatments, many more women have mild to moderate symptoms. These mild to moderate symptoms can be treated with the O-Shot® in Shelby!

Sexual Satisfaction

Approximately 43% of women have difficulty achieving and orgasm. Another study found almost 89% of women fake an orgasm. That shouldn’t be you. With the O-Shot® in Cincinnati, you can use the power of platelet-rich plasma to safely and naturally make your genitalia more sensitive to the touch and improve your sexual satisfaction and change the “Oh no, into OMG!”.

Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness is present when the tissues of the vagina are no longer well-lubricated. This can be related to the hormonal shifts associated with menopause and peri-menopause, or can be something women notice after childbirth. When these symptoms are caused by a decreased amount of estrogen in a woman’s body, this problem is called atrophic vaginitis. Not only does the vaginal tissue feel dry, but it also looses its elasticity, thus resulting in painful intercourse. The O-Shot® increases your natural vaginal lubrication.

Process & Results

Step 1: Draw a Blood Sample

First, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm.


Step 2: Prepare the PRP

Using a centrifuge, platelet rich plasma (or PRP) is isolated from the blood sample, all within about 15 minutes in the office. The platelets are then “activated” to release at least eight growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.


Step 3: Inject the PRP

After numbing cream is applied to the vaginal area, the doctor uses a small needle anesthetize the nerves leading to the clitoris. Then, a small needle is used to carefully and gently place precise amounts of PRP in the structures responsible for the female orgasm and pleasure. Patients report that they feel no pain during the O-Shot® in Shelby, NC!

Step 4: Vaginal Tissues are Regenerated

The healing and growth factors cause new cell growth and vascularization to occur over several months. Tissues become more supple, sensitive and elastic. They thicken and produce more lubrication when stimulated.


Step 5: Results

60% of women improve after the first O-Shot® and approximately 85% are thrilled after their second O-Shot®. It typically takes about 12 weeks to see the full effect, and some women may require a series of two or three O-Shot® treatments, spaced 8 to 12 weeks in between, to reach their desired potential. After about 8-12 weeks, you’ll notice an improvement in stress urinary incontinence and enhanced pleasure during intercourse. The effects of the O-Shot® last about 12-18 months. Some women combine the O-Shot® with Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy for enhanced results.
