If you suffer from erectile dysfunction, there’s no need to be embarrassed, as you are not alone. Studies have found that approximately 50% of men suffer from some form of erectile dysfunction.
The good news is that it is treatable. If you are having trouble getting and maintaining an erection, your sex life is not doomed. Instead, you may need to explore some different treatment options to determine what will work best for you.
One of these treatments is a Priapus shot, sometimes called a p-shot.
What Is a Priapus Shot?
The Priapus shot is a shot of platelet-rich plasma (PSP) into the penis and penile area. Priapus is the Greek god of male regenerative power and sexual health.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy has been used for several different conditions, as it comes from your own blood and can stimulate the regeneration of your cells and tissues.
To perform the procedure, a small amount of your own blood is taken and then run through a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from your blood. The platelets are then injected into your penis with a tiny needle. Before the procedure, the area is numbed, so you don’t feel a thing.
Pros and Cons of Priapus Shots
There are many benefits of p-shots. The downtime is nonexistent, as the procedure is quick and painless. An anesthetic cream is used at the injection site so you don’t feel the needle. It’s also performed in a doctor’s office and is finished in less than an hour.
You can expect the following after a p-shot:
- Increased blood flow
- Stronger and firmer erections
- Easier time achieving erections
- Improvement or curing of penile curvature caused by Peyronie’s Disease
- Increased sensitivity in the penis
There are some downsides to the p-shot, however. Most insurance companies do not cover the shot, so you may have to pay several thousand dollars out of pocket for the shot. There are also only a few providers trained to provide the treatment, so you may have to travel to get the shot.
The evidence suggesting that it is effective is mostly anecdotal, as the few studies that have been done have had mixed results or had small sample sizes, making it difficult to come to any clear conclusions about the procedure.
If you’d like to take a chance on an experimental procedure, a p-shot could be right for you. If it doesn’t work, there is no real danger to it, so you’re not at risk.
