Shannon Beador O Shot 01

This week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County boldly went where no cameras have gone before — in between Shannon Storms Beador’s legs for an “O-Shot” into her lady parts!

Shannon told the cameras that she was curious to try it because she’s turning 55 and out on the dating scene, “so if there are non-invasive procedures on the natural side, bring it on!” She joked "You want to inject some blood into my vagina and it might help? I’ll take it!” But what exactly does this peculiar-sounding procedure do?

The O-Shot is a nonsurgical procedure that uses platelet rich plasma (PRP), from the patient’s own blood, to help stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation. “They centrifuge your blood and inject one syringe into the clitoris and the other around the edges and it helps with heightened arousal, if you have an orgasm," the mom explained in the episode. Still, we had to know more.

BravoTV.com chatted with aesthetic registered nurse Tannaz Razavi from CosmetiCare, who did the honors and is a self-proclaimed "vagina whisperer.” Read on to get all the details.

What exactly is the O shot?

Tannaz Razavi: The O-Shot, or “orgasm shot,” is a non-surgical procedure that is used to treat sexual dysfunction and stimulate the vagina in a way that positively impact orgasms. The procedure uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the patients’ drawn blood to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation. The O-Shot improves orgasm, libido, arousal, stress incontinence, and urgency (aka when you cough or jump and pee a little).
 
How does it work?

Platelets extracted from the blood, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), are placed in a syringe and injected into an area near the clitoris and an area just inside the vagina — the “o-spot.” Those platelets, rich with growth factors and pro-healing properties, are used to stimulate the growth of new cells in the injected areas, making those areas more sensitive to touch.
 
How much does it cost?

$1000-$1500.
 
How often do you need to get it?

One treatment can last up to six months and additional treatments will only improve results.
 
Are there any risks?

As long as you’re a healthy adult woman, the risks are minimal, but as with any treatment that disrupts the tissue there is a risk of infection.
 
What is the recovery time?

Results are noticed as soon as 24 hours after the treatment. The benefits from the procedure happen with new cell growth, which can take three to 12 weeks.
 
Who is a good/bad candidate?

Bad candidates would be anyone on blood thinners or anyone with a history of a blood disorder. Good candidates are all other women.
 
Why is it so controversial?

There are no FDA regulations on an individual’s own blood used for treatments, although the device and equipment used to prepare the plasma is FDA-approved. PRP has over 9,000 studies proving the efficacy of its use, but people still doubt the benefits.
