Some men find it difficult to achieve and maintain an erection as they age. This condition is known as erectile dysfunction (ED), and it can negatively impact a man’s intimate relationships and self-esteem. But the p-shot is now available for assisting men experiencing ED, but will it also help to give them a stronger erection.

What is the P-Shot?

The p-shot or Priapus Shot is an injectable treatment for ED. The p-shot consists of PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) that is derived from the patient’s own blood. The concentrated platelets contain growth factors that initiate cellular regeneration and tissue repair.

Will the p-shot give me a stronger erection?

When PRP is injected into the penis, the growth factors that are released rejuvenate the erectile tissue, resulting in the formation of new blood vessels, and the growth of new cells. The rejuvenation of the erectile tissue increases sensitivity in the penis, and leads to stronger erections.

How the p-shot works

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and is then spun in a centrifuge, to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. A numbing cream is applied to the penis to make the treatment more comfortable, and the PRP is then injected into targeted areas.

Are there any side–effects

Since the p-shot contains the patient’s own plasma there is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. However, after treatment there may be some tenderness at the injection site, but this should resolve within a few hours.
