Everything You Want to Know About the P-Shot

Dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a frustrating experience for any man. Not only can it stifle your sex life and cause low self-esteem, but it can also place stress on your relationship with your partner and make intimate situations less satisfying for both of you. ED is not something you have to live with—and because of the P-Shot, you have an opportunity to take advantage of a discrete, more natural, and overall low-maintenance approach to treatment.
To help you learn about the P-Shot and its benefits, we have compiled everything you want to know about the P-Shot. We hope that this information will be a valuable resource to you as you consider how the P-Shot can help improve and enhance your sex life with your partner.


What is the P-Shot?

The P-Shot, known by its formal name as the Priapus Shot, is a treatment that helps men improve the frequency, stamina, and sensation associated with their erections. The shot uses Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy and is a non-invasive ED treatment that uses a patient’s own blood. A high-speed centrifuge separates the growth factor, and then your doctor re-injects the plasma back into your body.
Originally developed to help athletes recover more efficiently and naturally from sports injuries, it has become an effective alternative to assist men who deal with ED in their intimate lives.


What is PRP?

PRP is a regenerative therapy that involves collecting a concentration of platelets from a patient’s blood and injecting them back into the body. Platelets are naturally involved in healing processes within the body and can stimulate cell regeneration and repair tissues by releasing growth factors as well as other key proteins.
When a patient gets the P-Shot, the PRP will be acquired by drawing a small amount of blood from one’s own arm during the time of the procedure.


How Does the P-Shot Work?

PRP will be injected directly into a patient’s penis using a tiny needle. By doing this, healthy tissue, such as muscles and blood vessels, will be regenerated and restored which will result in the following benefits:

  • More sensation and increased pleasure during intimate moments
  • Better stamina and improved ability to keep and maintain an erection
  • Increased strength and intensity during orgasm
  • Superior quality and firmness alongside the potential of improved length and girth of the penis
  • Reduced chance of premature ejaculation
  • The potential to experience enhanced efficacy associated with pharmaceutical therapies like Cialis® or Viagra®

Additionally, while the P-Shot is most often used to improve a man’s sex life, it can also be a form of treatment to address sexual dysfunction that may present after prostate cancer surgery. It can also treat other problems such as urinary incontinence and prostate discomfort.


Does the P-Shot Hurt?

It is natural to feel a bit intimidated and worried by the thought of getting an injection in the penis. However, we can assure you that this non-surgical procedure has been designed with your comfort and well-being in mind. The entire procedure takes only about 60 minutes from start to finish, and a numbing agent is used prior to the injection itself.
The majority of men will feel something when the penis is moved to ensure proper positioning for the injection to take place. Some men feel a bit of pressure as the PRP is injected, but this has never been reported to be intolerable by a patient of Sugar Land Medical Spa.


Is the P-Shot Safe?

Since this ED treatment depends upon the use of a patient’s own plasma and blood, there is no risk of an adverse reaction or allergic response. It is completely natural, unlike that of ED pharmaceutical medications as well as cosmetic fillers.
The P-Shot is a popular and safe treatment that has been used by countless men to treat ED. It is widely recognized as a natural alternative when compared to the use of drugs or pursuing surgical remedies.


How Quick Are Results?

While every man is different and responds to varied treatment at separate intervals, some men, widely recognized as early responders, experience results from the P-Shot within as little as 24 hours. In most normal cases, men will begin to experience the benefits of the treatment within a few weeks of treatment.
Treatment results will usually peak within three to four months.


How Long Will the Results Last?

On average, most men’s results last between a year and 18 months. Results may last longer if a patient also makes healthy lifestyle choices while responding well to treatment.


How Many P-Shot Treatments Are Required?

This can also vary from person to person, and a treatment regimen will be determined by your doctor. Individuals who are suffering from a more severe case of ED or other circumstances may require additional treatments.
On average, a man should expect to receive one to two treatments in order for the desired results to be achieved. Treatments will be spaced a few months apart to accommodate monitoring of your condition and ensure alignment with your treatment plan and overall needs.


When Can Sexual Activity Be Resumed?

A patient can engage in sexual activity in as little as four hours after the P-Shot procedure has been completed.


Are There Any Side Effects?

The chance of any side effects is quite minimal and is usually related to minor bleeding or bruising as well as swelling. Infection at the injection site is rare.
