Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®): A SPECIFIC Method using blood-derived growth factors to rejuvenate the penis
Most men will tell you that their penis is the most important organ in his body. Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection and/or concerns about penile size, shape and curvature, with or without pain, can affect self-esteem and create stress between partners.
Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells, or PRF. PRF uses concentrated platelets, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair.
PRF is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular repair AND rejuvenation throughout the body.
What Benefits Can a Man Have from the P-Shot®?
- Stronger, firmer erections
- Easier to achieve and maintain erections (i.e., improved sexual stamina)
- Increased penile length and girth
- Improvement in or resolution of penile curvature from Peyronie’s Disease
- Resolution of penile pain with erection
- Increased sensitivity in the penis
- Better overall blood flow to the penis
What Does PRF Stand For?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin
Is the P-Shot® the Same Thing as Trimix Injections?
No. TriMix is a shot to produce an erection for a brief period of time and must be given every time you wish to have an erection; however, the P-Shot® is a treatment that revives and enhances your natural erections. TriMix injections are a treatment option and can be used before and after a P-Shot®.
How Is PRF for the P-Shot® Acquired?
A small amount of blood is drawn in the office at the time of the procedure. Your blood is then spun to separate the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood. The platelets are isolated and then injected back into the body wherever their benefits are needed. Along with numbing cream on the skin, a block is performed on the penis, so there is no pain.
How Long Does the P-Shot® Procedure Take to Perform?
The PRF injection is performed in our office by a Doctor of Nursing who is trained and certified. It should take about 60 minutes.
You should stop any NSAIDS 4 days prior and blood thinners about 1 week prior and 2 weeks after treatment (consult with your doctor before stopping any medication) to maximize the PRF, and reduce the chance of bruising.
Is There Anything Else That I Will Need to Do After the Procedure?
Yes. Using a VED, or Vacuum Erection Device (pump) is essential for achieving optimal success from the procedure. This is usually done twice daily. It requires only a few minutes of your time and without it, success rates are usually lower. We will walk you through it the first time.

When Can I Resume Sexual Activity After the P-Shot® Procedure?
You may resume sexual activity about 4 hours after procedure on the same day.
What Are the Potential Side Effects of the P-Shot®?
Since PRF is extracted from your own blood, there are few and only minor potential side effects. These include minor bleeding or bruising, swelling, and very rarely infection.
When do I see results?
Often results will be immediate, although it may take 3-6 weeks to start seeing changes and 3-6 months to reach full effect.
How many of these treatments can I have? Will my penis get better and bigger with every treatment?
We usually see good results with 1-2 treatments. You may have your second treatment within 6 months.
What If the P-Shot® doesn’t work for me?
The P-Shot® has seen good results for 68-80% of men. If it does not seem to be effective for you, there may be other factors that can cause erectile or arousal concerns. Many times, it is related to Low-T, unbalanced hormones, stress, or other lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise.
There are multiple other options for men who would like a stronger, longer erection, including:
to make an appointment
for a men’s health consult or exam
