LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Using growth factors derived from a woman's own blood, physician researchers Drs. Samuel Wood and Charles Runels have developed a simple, office-based procedure that appears to markedly improve the quality of a woman's sexual response. The preliminary results of this procedure, which involves the injection of platelet-derived growth factors (PDGFs) into a specific area on the upper wall of the vagina and the clitoris, were recently presented at the annual meeting of the A4M, the largest regenerative biomedicine convention in the country.
"The most important factor in the success of this procedure is the correct placement of the injections. When these same growth factors were injected into the putative 'G-Spot,' we saw minimal or no improvement in sexual function, but when injected into an area distinct from the traditionally defined G-Spot, the response has been surprising, robust and consistent," said Dr. Wood.
"This area of responsiveness is distinct enough from the ill-defined 'G-Spot' that we felt it deserved its own name. The name we chose is the 'O-Spot™' ("Orgasm Spot™') and we have termed the procedure involving the injection of growth factors into this area the 'O-Shot™' (Orgasm Shot™). This area appears to be critical in determining whether a woman is able to achieve a vaginal orgasm, something experienced consistently by fewer than 20% of women," explained Dr. Runels.
"It is important to note that there are many potential causes of sexual dysfunction, which affects an estimated 40% of all women, and so all patients should receive a complete evaluation prior to receiving this or any other treatment. Based on over 20 years of research on the use of PDGFs for other medical conditions, the administration of PDGFs appear to safe, and with the use of a local anesthetic the O-Shot™ itself is associated with
