Urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and other concerns can cause difficulties for women and impact their sexual wellness. These issues are a common part of aging and can be particularly troublesome after childbirth. 

Dr. Glat provides the Love Shot for women to enhance sexual wellness and the health of the female intimate tissues.

What is the Love Shot for women?

Also called the O Shot, the Love Shot for women is a procedure that is done in the office using your own healing and rejuvenating cells to help restore and improve the health of your intimate tissues.  

The Love Shot uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) dervived from your own blood to regenerate, stimulate and heal the vaginal tissues. A small amount of blood is taken from a vein in your arm, then processed in a centrifuge in order to extract and pack the platelets in the blood plasma together to focus and intensify the healing with their proteins and growth factors. These stimulate your body’s healing and regenerative abilities. 

This substance is injected precisely into specific areas of the vaginal tissues, where it helps to restore the blood circulation, health and firmness in the vaginal tissues and heighten sensation. The vaginal tissues are stimulated and rejuvenated. This treatment can also help to rejuvenate the appearance of the vaginal area.

What sexual wellness concerns can be improved with the Love Shot for women?

  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal dryness
    Painful intercourse 
  • Inability to orgasm
    Diminished sexual sensation
  • Lowered libido 
  • Lichen sclerosis–a skin/auto-immune condition that can occur in women’s private areas 
  • Inability to become aroused

What should I expect during my Love Shot treatment?

Your vaginal area will then be numbed with a local anesthetic. The PRP derived from your blood is then injected into your vaginal tissues inside the vaginal walls and in the upper vagina to  trigger cellular regeneration and tissue restoration, and increase blood flow to the area.

After your Love Shot treatment, collagen and tissue growth help to restore vaginal function and tissues. The regenerative effects of the Love Shot are particularly effective for menopausal and post-menopausal women.

Your treatment will take about one hour.


PRP is derived from your own blood, and thus there is no risk of allergic reaction or other major side effects. Women may experience mild, temporary spotting, swelling or hypersensitivity in the area, which will fade within a couple of days.

You will be able to return to your usual activities after your Love Shot treatment, as there is no downtime or recovery period. Patients may have sexual intercourse on the same day as their treatment.
