New shot helps women achieve orgasms

New Shot Helps Women Achieve Orgasms

'Good Morning America' reports that 50 million American women are having trouble between the sheets -- but a a new shot might be able to help.

'Good Morning America's ays that while men have 24 FDA approved medications for sexual dysfunction, women have a whopping zero.

Called the O-shot, the injection is filled with calcium-enriched platelets that are injected into the vagina to stimulate the growth of new cells.

One doctor says it's improved the sex lives of 85 percent of the 80 women to whom he has given the injection.

The inventor of the O-shot, Dr. Charles Runels, talked to WCMH about how it works: 'Remember when you scuffed your knee as a child and there's a scab there and that yellow goo there? That yellow goo is what caused the skin to regrow, and there's a way to make that in about 10 minutes while drawing your blood.'

Basically, once your blood is drawn, the platelets are injected with some calcium and form that yellow substance. It is then injected into the vagina to rejuvenate and create more cells.

Marcia, 64, said that after about 3 weeks of treatments, the results were like 'fireworks.'

'It has enhanced my response and my enjoyment more than I ever enjoyed it.'

As for safety, one urologist and expert in women's health issues told ABC News:

'Injecting growth factors into the genital tract of a woman has risks associated with it and the benefits have not been teased out.'

The shot costs roughly $1,500 and is not covered by insurance.

What do you think? Is that too much to spend, or is a satisfying sex life priceless?

I agree, John. Too many other things to spend $1500 on.

This just makes me laugh. There are drugs that are needed, really needed by many people. The side effects of any drug you take can and often are more severe than the conditions they treat. Taking or using drugs for non medical reasons is just plain stupid. The amount of chemicals in the air we breathe and the food we eat, along with the meds we take is proving to be a major cause of the diseases we suffer from. Why would anyone want to add more chemicals to their bodies that only make big pharma richer.

Todays paper copied from the Los Angeles Times (liberal land)
"Obamacare enrolles hit snags in doctors' office"
"are having trouble finding doctors" , "getting false informationon which ones are covered" , "To hold downpremiums under the health care law, major insurers have sharply cut the number of doctors and hospitals available to patientsin the states newhealth insurance market"

Where have I heard all of this before? Another great move by the "progressives" that affects us all.

It should be covered by insurance, if women are more content & happy via orgasms they are less prone to get sick which in turn saves insurance companies money. Is Viagra covered by insurance?

The risks have not been "teased out"? When will the commercials hit TV for the class action lawsuits on this?

Price is prohibitive for sure but did everyone miss the fact that you have to have injections in your vagina???!!! Really !!!! Men get a little blue pill and we have to endure a shot! I've had shots in my knees that were very painful. I don't think I want them in my genitals! I'll wait for the pill version by then the cost should be down and hopefully it will be covered.

If I had an extra 1500 for shots like that, I would get a face lift and fake the O's. LOL

They should do an honest poll and ask how many 64 year old women want fireworks anymore!

There's one doctor who advertises on the local news station who makes custom meds for men with ED. I hate that ad.

why do you hate that?? Theres a totally different physical(and mental) cause for male problems..it`s one thing that can be helped...Women have a totally different body type for sex--They don`t have to get it hard..Sure women have problems but it isn`t as easily treated..Give them time and something will become available...I guess research and treatment for all the other women problems should be stopped and all the power of research should be directed to women`s climaxes..Stop the research for breast cancer-ovarian cancer-heart disease-diabetes-and all the other problems the women`s bodies have...

With all the options out there for men, I feel this is something that is great for women. I do feel if a woman has insurance, it should be covered. It would be more comforting if this option came in a pill form, as do men's options, rather a shot in the vagina!

Mary---some men have to have the shot in the penis too...You forget the male body part is totally relying on blood supply to it--something that finally can be addressed..Your a woman--what is the cause of a woman`s problem...Enlighten us all with your female knowledge...
