The P-shot is a treatment that tackles erectile dysfunction by improving blood flow in the penis and stimulating new tissue and nerve cell growth.
Changes to a man’s hormones, muscles, and mental health can lead to erectile dysfunction, but regardless of the cause, it almost always results in reduced blood flow in the penis. As for damaged tissues or nerve cells, they can limit firmness, shape, and erectile longevity in the penis.
Although there are different types of erectile dysfunction treatments, few address blood flow and tissue growth simultaneously. The P-shot looks to improve both of these problems while providing men with an erectile dysfunction treatment that is quick, non-invasive, and completely natural.
How Erections Work
To understand why the P-shot works, we must first look at how erections work.
The penis contains two muscle tissues called the corpus cavernosum chambers. When aroused, these muscle tissues relax as a significant amount of blood travels from the body and into the penis. The two relaxed muscle tissues trap blood cells in the chambers, and the pressure from all the trapped blood causes the penis to grow and stiffen.
Men cannot achieve erections if enough blood does not flow into the penis. Likewise, if there is any damage to the corpus cavernosum chambers or other muscle groups in the penis, the man may also have problems keeping an erection.
How P-Shot Treatment Works
With P-shot treatments, the patient’s platelets are injected directly into the penis. Platelets are blood cells that help the body form clots. When you are injured and bleeding, the platelets are the cells that stop further blood loss by binding together, forming a clot, and then healing the wound.
Direct injection of blood cells into the penis achieves three things:
- Increases blood flow into the penis
- Stimulates tissue growth in the penis
- Stimulates nerve cell regeneration
By increasing the blood flow, the pressure is allowed to build up in the corpus cavernosum chambers to achieve an erection. The healing properties of the new blood cells also increase penis size and renew any damaged muscle tissues.
What to Expect During and After P-Shot Treatment
P-shot treatment is quick and easy. First, a small blood sample is taken from the patient’s arm and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the plasma (which has an abundance of platelets) from the other elements in the blood. Once the platelets are activated with calcium chloride, the plasma is injected into the patient’s penis.
Local anaesthesia is used to numb the penis in preparation for the injections. The injections themselves are done with a very thin needle, so there is very little pain involved. The injection of the plasma is done on various parts of the penis, including the sides of the penis and along the base of the head.
The entire process takes 30 to 60 minutes. Almost immediately, the patient will notice an increase in penis length and width, though this initial growth is temporary. The penis goes back to its original size after a few hours, but over the next few weeks, there is a gradual increase in size as the platelets work their magic by stimulating tissue growth.
The patient is free to go on the same day as the treatment. Depending on recommendations from urologists, the patient may also need to use a penis pump or medication alongside P-shot treatment.
P-Shot Treatment Benefits
In comparison to other treatment methods for erectile dysfunction, the P-shot has many benefits, including:
- Low recovery time
- Non-surgical procedure
- Uses natural materials
- Low risk of infection
- Low pain and discomfort during the procedure
- No risk of scarring
- Less expensive than other methods (if only one session is needed)
- Increased penis size
- Little to no side effects
- Enhances orgasms
- Increase in sensation
- Can be used as treatment for Peyronie’s Disease
The P-Shot Compared to Other Treatments
The P-shot is a great option for those that want non-surgical treatment for erectile dysfunction. Not only do patients walk out of the clinic the same day as the procedure, but they can also have sex the same day. The results are immediate and non-invasive, unlike penile implants.
Depending on the results of the first session, patients may only need to go through the procedure once. Though yearly P-shot sessions may be recommended, the patient does not need to inject, ingest, or apply anything before having sex. Medical treatments like Viagra need to be taken continuously, so P-shots end up being the less expensive treatment for many patients.
Last but not least, one of the many benefits P-shots have over other medical treatments is the long-lasting physiological effects. For example, penis pumps temporarily increase blood flow into the penis. However, neither penis pumps nor Viagra alone directly address blood flow problems, nerve cell regeneration, or tissue regrowth.
The P-shot alone may not work for many patients. Some may need to pair it with another kind of treatment. With that said, P-shots can reduce the dependence on other treatments the patient may find uncomfortable.
P-Shot Treatment Side Effects
Some side effects of P-shot treatment include:
- Minor bleeding
- Minor bruising
- Mild soreness
Almost all patients that have undergone P-shot treatment show no long-lasting side effects. The side effects seen above are typically gone either within a few hours or days after treatment.
Because the procedure uses the patient’s own blood, there is little risk of infection. Any infection seen will have been a result of unhygienic practices by the administrating doctor or nurse. The fact that the injected material is part of the patient’s blood also means that the body will neither reject it, nor trigger the patient’s allergies.
Who Is The P-Shot For?
P-shots are recommended for any man that struggles with erectile dysfunction, lichen sclerosus, or Peyronie’s disease. It can also be used to enhance sexual performance, increase penis size, and intensify orgasms.
P-shot treatment may not be the best medical option for you if you are undergoing treatment for a blood-related issue. Treatment results may be poor if you are a smoker since nicotine constricts blood flow. Speak to your general doctor or urologist to determine whether P-shot treatment is right for you.
