P-Shot injections are also known as the Priapus Shot and help men achieve stronger, firmer, longer-lasting erections. The P-Shot treats Erectile Dysfunction by using Platelet-Rich Plasma from your own blood to help increase pleasure and sensitivity. 

In this article you’ll learn about the benefits of P-Shot, how it works, and what to expect.

What is the P-Shot?

The key ingredient in the P-Shot is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which contains platelets and plasma from your own blood. These proteins release growth factors and promote blood flow, both of which are highly effective at triggering regeneration at a cellular level.

While PRP injections have been used for years to increase recovery rates from muscle and tendon injuries, it’s also known for being effective at treating Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.

It’s common for men as they age to experience Erectile Dysfunction as a result of restricted blood vessels and aging tissue, which can reduce blood flow to the penis. However, good blood flow is crucial for experiencing erections, which is where Platelet Rich Plasma injections can help.

When PRP is injected into the penis, it encourages proteins to nourish blood flow to that area, triggering specific therapeutic properties to increase penile blood flow and promote the formation of healthier penile tissue. The result is enhanced sensitivity, stronger erections, and improved overall sexual performance.

How Does the P-Shot Work?

By recruiting naturally occurring growth factors and proteins from within your own blood, the P-Shot can treat your Erectile Dysfunction and improve your sexual performance. The P-Shot works in five simple steps:

Step 1

To obtain the PRP and inject it into your penis, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm.

Step 2

Your blood sample is placed into a centrifuge. This spins your blood at high speeds to separate out the platelets from the plasma. This takes approximately 15 minutes.

Step 3

After the centrifuge has completed spinning your blood sample, a layer of PRP remains. The PRP is extracted into a syringe.

Step 4

A numbing agent is applied to your penis to ensure you are pain-free.

Step 5

The PRP is injected into multiple locations throughout your penis.

Since the P-Shot uses your own blood plasma, your body is more likely to utilize it and benefit from it rather than using foreign substances. 

This is an outpatient procedure that takes approximately 30 minutes.

What are the Benefits of P-Shot Treatment?

The P-Shot can help treat a variety of issues, including Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronies disease (a condition where scar tissue forces the penis to curve when erect). Men might experience the following benefits with the P-Shot:

  • Penile enhancement
  • Enhanced penile sensitivity
  • Stronger erections
  • Longer lasting erections
  • Increased pleasure
  • Improved sexual stamina
  • Elimination of pain during intercourse
  • Increased blood flow to the penis

You’ll also save money when receiving P-Shot treatments since it is an outpatient procedure and there is no medication or surgery needed.

How is the P-Shot Effective for Treating Erectile Dysfunction?

The P-Shot can address the symptoms of ED by improving blood flow, promoting tissue growth and regeneration, and increasing penile sensitivity. Each of these factors can lead to increased sexual performance, longer-lasting erections, more firm erections, and overall improved erectile function.

How is the P-Shot Effective for Treating Peyronie’s Disease?

Peyronie’s disease involves the development of fibrous scar tissue, known as plaque. This can cause a curvature of the penis, making intercourse and erections difficult and painful. The P-Shot can potentially introduce growth factors to the area, breaking down the scar tissue and leading to the development of healthier tissue that reduces symptoms.

What To Expect

During Your Consultation

During your consultation, a specialist will review your symptoms and medical history to ensure you are a candidate for P-Shot treatment. They might also conduct a blood test to check your testosterone levels. If you are found to be a candidate for treatment, a second appointment will be scheduled for the P-Shot injection. 

During Your P-Shot Treatment Appointment

A small amount of blood will be taken from your arm and placed in the centrifuge. This device separates approximately 99 percent of your red blood cells from your platelets, enhancing the regenerative benefits of PRP.

Once the centrifuge cycle is complete, a numbing agent is applied to your penis, and the PRP is injected in multiple locations.

After Your P-Shot Injection

While there is minimal downtime following your P-Shot treatment, it is recommended you use a Vacuum Erection Device (VED), also known as a penis pump. You’ll need to use the VED twice per day for a few minutes and continue for 2 weeks. Using the VED increases the amount of blood flow to the penis and helps increase the outcomes of your P-shot injection.

You can resume sexual activity that same day, within 24 hours after the treatment.

What are the Potential Side Effects and Risks From the P-Shot?

While side effects can vary from person to person, they tend to be minimal (since PRP is taken from your own blood). Side effects, while rare, can include bruising, swelling at the injection site, and bleeding.

While the exact timeframe will vary from person to person, many men experience the benefits of P-Shot injections for several months to a year. Additionally, it’s common for men to begin noticing the results from treatment within a few weeks after the first injection. The timing and number of injections you need will vary based on your overall health and additional factors affecting your sexual function.

Does P-Shot Treatment Hurt?

No, most men report that P-Shot treatment does not hurt since a numbing agent is applied to the penis before the injection.
