The Fem Shot
- Are you looking for help with a decreased libido, decreased arousal, or a decreased ability to orgasm?
- Do you need relief from urinary incontinence or painful intercourse?
- Would you like to enjoy a sex life free from pain and anxiety?
You can now take control of your sexual health and well-being with the Fem Shot, the rejuvenating clitorial injection for increased vaginal health.
We are proud to be among the first practices in NW Indiana and Chicagoland to introduce this important life-changing treatment for women. Living with intimate discomfort does not simply make sex unpleasant, but affects all areas of a woman’s life. Improving the physical aspects of sex can lead to more energy, more creativity, increased confidence and self-esteem, and less depression.
This procedure provides an option to women interested in a natural, non-surgical alternative for enhancing their overall sexual function or improving stress incontinence.
“Men have been blessed with various medical breakthroughs for sexual enhancement, from Viagra to pumps, and most recently the Man Shot. Finally, we have a new, natural sexual enhancement breakthrough to benefit women who desire much-needed relief from decreased sexual response, arousal, libido, and orgasm, not to mention respite from urinary incontinence. I am so excited to be able to offer this amazing procedure to women of the Chicagoland area in an effort to increase sexual sensation and curb urinary incontinence.”

Why get a Fem Shot?
Many women decide to receive this treatment to enhance their intimate life after many years of marriage, improve orgasmic function or urinary incontinence, or simply take their orgasms to a new level. In addition, the Fem Shot can be a life-changer when it comes to post-baby stages and pre-menopause.
Who can benefit from getting the Fem Shot?
Any female who struggles with urinary incontinence, painful sex, decreased arousal, or orgasms can benefit from the Fem Shot. These are common postmenopausal conditions and are more prevalent than many realize since there is a stigma around discussing these concerns. Know that you are not alone and we are here to help.
You might consider the Fem Shot if you suffer from any of these conditions:
- Hypoactive Sexual Desire: Low desire
- Female Sexual Arousal Disorder: Sex is desired, but arousal is difficult
- Female Orgasmic Disorder: Achieving orgasm is difficult
- Dyspareunia: painful sex
- Stress urinary incontinence
What are the benefits?
Every woman’s personal outcome is different, but the following benefits have been reported:
- Improvement of urinary incontinence, dramatic in some cases
- Arousal from clitoral stimulation is greatly intensified
- Stronger, more youthful orgasm
- Younger, healthier skin of the lips of the vagina, labia minora and majora.
- More frequent orgasms
- Increased libido and sexual desire
- Return of vaginal orgasm post-childbirth
- Relief from painful sex (dyspareunia)
- Increased natural vaginal lubrication (especially when combined with Femi Lift)
- Tighter vaginal wall
Where is the Fem Shot injected?
Specific sites of the female genitalia.
Is it painful?
No, we use a local anesthetic cream and a localized lidocaine to ensure you are completely comfortable during the procedure.
How many sessions are necessary?
Most patients see results after only one treatment, but many repeat the procedure as needed.
How long does the procedure take? Is there any downtime?
The Fem Shot procedure takes about 30 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward.
How soon until results are seen?
Some patients report same-day results. However, we give everyone a few weeks to regenerate and rejuvenate at their own pace.
The Fem Shot alone will not lead to an amazing sexual experience. Other factors play a role, such as good general health, a loving relationship, a relaxed state of mind, and proper hormonal balance. We highly recommend a consultation to evaluate your personal medical history and lifestyle and to find the best ways to activate your orgasm system.
How long do results last?
Results vary anatomically and physiologically with respect to age and hormonal status.
What does the Fem Shot consist of?
Essential growth factors containing platelets, medically referred to as platelet rich plasma (PRP). This PRP is derived from a small sample of your own blood.
How does the Fem Shot help regenerate healthy tissue?
When platelets are isolated from your blood, concentrated, then activated, the end result is the release of at least seven different natural growth factors. These special growth factors stimulate your stem cells to grow younger tissue in the vaginal region.
While it appears the doctor merely injects PRP into the vaginal area, the Fem Shot is actually a precise procedure that aims to enhance blood supply that increases clitoral and vaginal sensation.
Is there a risk of adverse reaction to PRP?
To date, not a single case of PRP-related adverse reaction is reported. This is because the PRP is derived from each patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reaction.
Is lack of stimulation common?
One out of every three women struggle with sexual stimulation, and the numbers are higher among middle-to-upper-aged women. But these statistics do not account for women who stay silent out of shame. According to research, less than 14 percent of women discuss sex with their doctors. Some medical professionals estimate the number of women struggling with sexual stimulation closer to 60-70 percent.
Why do so many women suffer in silence?
- Many doctors avoid talking about it fearing it may be misconstrued as inappropriate.
- Patients and doctors feel embarrassed
- Fear of being labeled with sexually derogatory slang words.
- Many were told it’s a “psychological” problem, an imagined problem “in their head.”
- Lack of proper therapeutic options; most treated with drugs or hormones
Does the Fem Shot help lichen sclerosus et atrophicus?
Yes, this is a debilitating genital scar-forming autoimmune disease of unknown cause and no definitive cure. But PRP treatment is known to provide relief. Research in this area is very promising with regard to reducing symptoms and lesions. Please inquire with our staff for more information.
Isn’t this a gynecological treatment?
The key to treatment effectiveness is injection precision. As a Radiology Practitioner Assistant,* Ms. Parker has abundant expertise with needles and injections and significant training and experience with this procedure. As a Fem Shot provider, her precise techniques mean you’ll receive the best possible results.
What other procedures are complementary?
Femi Lift or Wing Lift help improve female vaginal laxity and looseness.
*Radiology Practitioner Assistants undergo extensive, rigorous training in the field of radiology and are highly skilled at a variety of procedures requiring injections. All providers of this treatment must undergo specialized training. This training and licensing assure safe and comfortable treatment.
