Priapus shots, or p-shots, help restore healthy tissue in the penis through the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This treatment can treat erectile dysfunction by improving blood flow to the penis. It can also treat Peyronie’s disease by breaking up fibrous scar tissue. Additionally, p-shots offer the following benefits:

  • Improved libido
  • Increased girth and length
  • Heightened sexual pleasure
  • Better erection quality

Are P-Shots Right for You?

P-shots are designed for individuals who have been struggling to get or maintain an erection, and is well-suited for those who have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction or Peyronie’s disease. Compared to other erectile dysfunction treatments, P-shots offer a safe, non-invasive approach with little to no side effects.

What to Expect:

P-shots can safely be completed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you will be able to leave once the procedure is over. When having a P-shot, you can first expect your doctor to apply a numbing cream and local anesthetic to the genital area. While this starts to take effect, a traditional blood draw will be performed to obtain a blood sample from your arm.

This blood sample will be placed into a centrifuge for a few minutes. The centrifuge will spin the blood in order to separate the blood into layers composed of red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) will then be extracted from the sample and placed into injection syringes.

Next, the PRP will be injected into the penile shaft. In most cases, around 4-5 separate injections are used. Once the PRP has been injected, your doctor will instruct you to use a penis pump to draw blood into the penile shaft and circulate the PRP. As you recover, you may need to continue to use the penis pump for no more than 10 minutes a day.

Once the procedure is over, you will be able to return home. In most cases, you should be able to resume your normal activities that same day or the next day. However, it is recommended to avoid sexual intercourse for a couple days to prevent infection of the injection sites. As you recover, it is normal to experience some swelling, redness, and bruising around the injection sites. In most cases, these side effects will fade within 4-6 days. Most people notice results after about 3-6 treatments, however some people notice them as soon as 24 hours after the first procedure. Others don’t notice results until 3-4 months after the procedure.
