P shot

Are you looking for information about medical treatment options to improve your enjoyment during intimacy?

The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot, is a medical procedure designed to address certain aspects of male sexual health, particularly erectile dysfunction (ED) and enhancement of sexual function. The procedure involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from the patient's own blood.

A man might consider having a P-Shot (Priapus Shot) for various reasons, primarily focusing on improving sexual function and addressing concerns related to erectile dysfunction (ED) or other aspects of sexual performance. Here are some reasons why a man might consider undergoing a P-Shot:


  1. Erectile Dysfunction (ED): One of the primary reasons men seek the P-Shot is to address erectile dysfunction. The P-Shot is believed to enhance blood flow and stimulate tissue regeneration in the penis, potentially improving erectile function.
  2. Enhancement of Sexual Performance: Some men may consider the P-Shot for general enhancement of sexual performance, including increased sensitivity, improved endurance, and heightened pleasure. It is often marketed as a treatment that may contribute to a more satisfying sexual experience.
  3. Increased Penile Sensitivity: The P-Shot is thought to enhance penile sensitivity by promoting the growth of new blood vessels and improving overall tissue health. This increased sensitivity may contribute to improved sexual pleasure.
  4. Potential Improvement in Size and Girth: While scientific evidence supporting the idea of the P-Shot as a method for increasing penile size is limited, some men may be attracted to the procedure based on the belief that it could lead to improvements in size and girth.
  5. Non-Invasive Nature: Compared to some surgical options for addressing sexual function concerns, the P-Shot is a non-invasive procedure. This may appeal to men who prefer a less invasive approach to improving their sexual health.
  6. Individualized Treatment: The P-Shot uses the patient's own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is thought to contain growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration. The procedure is often personalized, with the PRP prepared from the individual's blood.

It's crucial for men considering the P-Shot to approach the decision with realistic expectations and to consult with a qualified healthcare provider. While some men may experience positive outcomes, individual responses to the P-Shot can vary, and the scientific evidence supporting its efficacy is still evolving. A thorough discussion with a healthcare professional can help individuals understand the potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure, allowing them to make informed decisions based on their specific health needs and goals.

What is the procedure like?

Here's a general description of the P-Shot procedure:

  1. Blood Draw: The P-Shot begins with a small blood draw from the patient, usually from the arm. The collected blood is then processed to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from other blood components.
  2. PRP Preparation: The extracted blood is centrifuged to concentrate the platelets, which are rich in growth factors. The resulting PRP contains a higher concentration of these growth factors, which are believed to stimulate tissue regeneration and improve blood flow.
  3. Local Anesthesia: Before administering the PRP, the genital area is typically numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure the patient's comfort during the procedure.
  4. PRP Injection: The PRP is carefully injected into specific areas of the penis, including the shaft and glans. The growth factors in the PRP are thought to promote the growth of new blood vessels and improve overall tissue health.

The goal of the P-Shot is to enhance sexual performance and satisfaction by improving erectile function and potentially increasing penile sensitivity. While the P-Shot is sometimes marketed as a form of male enhancement, it's essential to note that individual responses to the treatment may vary, and scientific evidence supporting its efficacy is still a subject of ongoing research.

Men considering the P-Shot should consult with a qualified healthcare provider who can assess their individual health and discuss whether the procedure is appropriate for their specific needs. As with any medical treatment, it's crucial to have a thorough understanding of the potential risks, benefits, and expectations associated with the P-Shot.

While the procedure is generally considered safe, it's important to be aware of potential side effects. It's crucial to note that individual experiences may vary, and not everyone will experience side effects. Some potential side effects of the P-Shot may include:

  1. Discomfort or Pain: Pain or discomfort at the injection site is a common side effect. This is often temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers if needed.
  2. Swelling and Bruising: Some men may experience swelling or bruising at the injection site. This is typically mild and resolves on its own over a short period.
  3. Infection: As with any injection-based procedure, there is a potential risk of infection. It's essential to follow proper hygiene protocols during the procedure to minimize this risk.
  4. Bleeding: Minor bleeding at the injection site is possible, but this is usually minimal and resolves quickly. Individuals taking blood-thinning medications may be at a slightly higher risk of bleeding.
  5. Allergic Reaction: While rare, there is a potential for an allergic reaction to components in the PRP or other materials used during the procedure. It's crucial to inform the healthcare provider of any known allergies before undergoing the P-Shot.
  6. Numbness or Tingling: Some individuals may experience temporary numbness or tingling in the treated area. This is typically mild and resolves over time.
  7. No Improvement in Symptoms: The P-Shot may not provide the desired results for everyone. Some individuals may not experience the expected improvements in sexual function or other targeted outcomes.

It's important for individuals considering the P-Shot to discuss potential side effects and risks with their healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure. Additionally, individuals should choose a qualified and experienced healthcare professional to perform the P-Shot to ensure the procedure is conducted safely and effectively.  In our clinic, this treatment is ONLY performed by our doctor, Dr Amber Bocknek.  She has a gentle touch and will take every step to make this procedure as comfortable as possible for you.
