Erectile Dysfunction Treatment: FAQs About the P-Shot

Written By West Georgia Regenerative Medicine on August 23, 2018

If your doctor has recommended the P-Shot (Priapus Shot) as an effective erectile dysfunction treatment, you’ll no doubt have a lot of questions you want answering before you go ahead. 

From how much it will hurt to what you can expect from your treatment, there are a lot of things to cover. 

Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions our patients ask, helping put your mind at ease as you embark on this treatment process. 

What’s Involved in This Erectile Dysfunction Treatment? 

To start, your doctor will take a sample of blood so they can obtain the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that’s at the heart of this treatment. The PRP is spun in a centrifuge, extracted, and prepared for injection.

In total, this entire procedure shouldn’t take much longer than half an hour. Most of the time you’ll spend in the clinic will be taken up processing your details and waiting for the blood. 

Once done, you’ll walk straight out of the clinic. All you have to do when you get home is use a pump twice a day for six weeks. This helps exercise and stimulate the penis to help it heal and may also help increase its girth and length. 

Will It Hurt? 

For many, the thought of having the injection is far worse than the actual injection itself. Prior to the injection, a strong topical anesthetic is applied. This helps numb the area so you may only feel a slight pinching sensation when the needle’s inserted, or you might not feel a thing. 

Does the P-Shot Increase Your Penis Size? 

If the fact that the P-Shot is an effective erectile dysfunction treatment isn’t enough, most men also note some increase in their girth post-procedure. Some may also notice an increase in length, and this is due to the stimulation of new tissues in the area.

Further studies also suggest that due to the way they facilitate new nerve growth, PRP-based injections may also improve function and sensation. 

Are There Any Side Effects to the P-Shot? 

In most cases, there is no need for downtime after the injection nor should you experience any side effects. Some may note a brief period of mild tenderness that lasts several hours and there may be a few drops of blood where the injection was administered.

However, you are able to return to exercise, work, and other day-to-day activities as soon as you leave the clinic – this includes having sex!
