The O-Shot and Stress Incontinence

When Dr. Charles Runels first began using the O-Shot™ to enhance women’s sexual pleasure and their ability to have better, more powerful orgasms, his patients reported another amazing benefit. More than 90 percent of these women who previously suffered with stress incontinence reported that they completely stopped leaking urine after theO-Shot™.

Dr. Runels reports that this number is actually closer to 99.9 percent in younger, otherwise healthy women with a normal body weight (BMI below 25).

“What’s amazing to me is that approximately 40 percent of women in this country have stress urinary incontinence problems, but no one is willing to talk openly about it,” said Dr. Runels. “How many physicians can say to their patients, ‘Come to my office on your lunch break, and you’ll walk out with zero stress incontinence?’”

The O-Shot’s ability to eliminate such an embarrassing and socially debilitating condition goes beyond the cure rates of other traditional and alternative methods of treating stress incontinence: acupuncture, biofeedback training with electrical stimulation, bulking agent injections, Kegel exercises, microcurrent stimulation, pelvic floor exercises, Renessa, and others.

The O-Shot™ is also a perfect fit for Dr. Emilia Ripoll’s 25 years experience with vaginal injections.

In addition, PRP injections are “autologous” (meaning the material comes from a woman’s own body) to stimulate the production of her own tissue. To date, there has never been a report of PRP injections causing allergic reactions or urethral obstruction issues.

Unlike PRP, urethral bulking injections with such materials as Coaptite®, which are used to artificially increase the size of the vaginal wall to reduce the incidence of stress  incontinence, can cause urethral obstruction/blockage. So women can go from not being able to hold their urine to not being able to pee (out of the frying pan and into the fire).

In addition, bulking injections can also cause painful granulomas (nodules) in the vaginal tissue. There have been zero reports of granulomas forming with vaginal PRP injections.

How the O-Shot™ Works

As with all PRP procedures, the O-Shot™ begins with a couple of vials of blood being drawn. The plasma that contains the PRP is then separated from the red and white blood cells by a centrifuge. The platelets, which contain highly active glycoproteins known as growth factors (also called “chemokines” and “cytokines”), are then injected with an extremely thin needle (27 gauge) into the anesthetized areas mentioned above.

The chemokines and cytokines within the PRP stimulate the local “uni-potent” stem cells (stem cells that only produce new cells in the adjacent tissue), which in turn initiates the production of new tissue in and around the injection locations. The growth factors within PRP initiate the productions of new cells, enhance the migration of these cells in and around the injection sites, repair damaged cells, and extend the life of existing cells — all of which contribute to tissue rejuvenation.

PRP injections also enhance the proliferation of fibroblast growth factors (FGF) that direct the formation of new blood vessels and capillaries (angiogenesis) and wound healing.

As with wound healing, the rejuvenation of the roof of the vagina and the clitoris involves numerous tissue types (blood vessels, nerves, smooth muscle fibers, lymph vessels, connective tissues, endothelium and so on). So when the vagina and the clitoris receive a concentrated wave of bioactive glycoproteins and FGF from a PRP injection, they immediately begin the process of generating new tissue.

It is this new tissue in and around the clitoris that stimulates a “more amorous” sexual response, while the natural build up of tissue in the roof of the vagina virtually eliminates stress incontinence.
