Painful intercourse. Diminished arousal and orgasm. Genital dryness. Familiar with any of these lady-wood killers? There’s a good chance many of you are. “As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in tissue diminishes, sometimes resulting in difficulty during sex,” explains aesthetic gynaecologist and endoscopic surgeon Dr Natalia Novikova from AestheticGynaecologist.com.

But there’s a solution: G-spot amplification, aka the G-Shot. “It’s an injection that enhances feeling in the G-spot, creating more fullness and allowing women to experience enhanced sexual arousal as well as more intense and deeper orgasms,” says Dr Novikova. “Women who have lost sexual sensation or vaginal orgasm or women who experience pain during intercourse and genital dryness often feel dramatically increased sensation,” explains Dr Novikova.

So, how does it work?
The procedure takes just a few minutes and the doctor will use a speculum (the instrument used during a Pap smear) to reach your G-spot. A numbing cream is applied and then hyaluronic acid is injected into the spot. Wondering what’s so special about this particular acid? “It has an exceptional ability to bind water and therefore gives structure and moisture to any damaged tissue in the G-spot area,” explains Dr Novikova.

The gynaecologist further explains that “Women who were able to experience vaginal orgasm easily, but now face difficulty with it are likely candidates for the treatment.”
If you’re interested in undergoing the procedure, it’s important to understand that it’s not a miracle cure – it’s not going to help you with sexual dysfunction or problems in your relationships. But if you’re looking to revive your sensation during sex to its former glory, it could help you reach that sweet spot.
