The Ultimate Guide to The P-Shot®: Everything Doctors & Nurses Need to Know
While most of the procedures we cover are more focused on aesthetic improvement, The P-Shot is geared more toward sexual performance in men. If you’re a physician, nurse practitioners, or sex educator, you’ll need to learn more about The Priapus Shot to see if it’s a procedure you’ll recommend, or add as a treatment option in your practice.
So, what IS The P-Shot?
The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot, is a treatment for improved sexual performance in mem, and also for men who have Peyronie’s disease. It is especially beneficial to those who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, diabetes, drug side effects or other issues. The P-Shot is a modern medical procedure that is relatively pain-free and provides long-lasting results such as improved erection, performance and even increasing penis size.
How Much Does The P-Shot Cost?
The exact cost will vary from facility to facility and may be less if the patient pays cash or credit card up front for the service. On average, it is expected that the P-shot, and additional follow-up/equipment, will cost between $1800 and $2200, as of mid-2018.
Does The P-Shot Work?
Yes. Results have been very positive. But, it is important to realize that everyone will not have the exact same results. For most patients, the result is an increase in length, girth and ability to hold an erection. Sensitivity is also often improved. It may take a few weeks to reach full benefit.
How Long Does The P-Shot Last?
There is no specific protocol in place for how often the treatment must be done. However, most patients find that it provides good results for eight to twelve months. Depending on the patient’s specific case, you may want to schedule follow up treatments.
Who Is A Good Candidate for The P-Shot?
Nearly any man who feels that they are not able to perform as well sexually as they would like to would benefit from The P-Shot. Those who have erectile dysfunction, whether from prostate cancer or another cause, are very good candidates for this treatment. It’s important for the patient to have a thorough consultation to determine if they would be a good candidate for the treatment.
How Does The P-Shot Work?
The P-Shot is a PRP treatment much like the renowned Vampire treatments. The patient’s own blood is drawn like it would be for any other procedure and the plasma-enriched growth factors are harvested and turned into a shot that can be given for improved sexual performance.
What Are The Side Effects of The P-Shot?
The side effects of the P-shot are very minimal. However, you may wish to consider the following:
- Slight Bruising
- Sensitivity (generally a positive)
In most cases, this is all you’ll need to look out for. When compared to medications and other treatments for erectile dysfunction, the side effects are almost non-existent.
Is The P-Shot Safe?
Because the shot uses the patient’s own platelets, there is little chance of rejection or irritation. The P-shot is a very safe procedure and has had few problems reported. Safety is of paramount importance, so it is vital that providers go through the proper training and certification program in order to complete the process safely and effectively.
Does The P-Shot Hurt?
Pain is always a concern with any medical procedure, and with good reason. A local anesthetic is used before the shot is given, so there should be very little pain. Afterward, there may be some slight bruising and tenderness, as you would expect from any shot. However, this is quite minimal and most patients will not expect any lingering issues.
How Much Down Time Can I Expect After The P-Shot?
Most patients will not expect any downtime from The P-Shot procedure. In most cases, a patient can expect to get back to work and normal activities right away. A patient may choose to relax and not undergo any strenuous exercises that day to rest up and avoid any irritation from the shot itself.
Is The P-Shot Covered By Insurance?
The P-shot is not covered by insurance. However, many providers may offer Care Credit or another form of payment plan to make payment easier.
