Erectile dysfunction is more common than you may think. In fact, 1 out of every 4 men under the age of 40 will experience some level of ED, and after the age of 50, that number doubles. Erectile dysfunction doesn’t just affect men physically; it can have a very significant impact psychologically as well as emotionally.
Commonly, when men are faced with ED issues, they are prescribed medications designed to stimulate and enhance sexual function; however, these medications have some serious drawbacks. Drugs like Viagra and Cialis are among the most popularly prescribed, and though they may appear to address the situation temporarily, they do not actually correct the source of ED and may lead to long-term side effects.
Risk of heart attacks and loss of vision or hearing are among the more severe side effects that have been reported. Fortunately there are other options available that naturally increase sexual function without the need for prescription medications.
P-Shot® for Erectile Dysfunction
The Priapus Shot®, also known as the P-Shot® is a non-surgical and stress-free treatment option for men seeking alternative erectile dysfunction solutions. The P-Shot® uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to utilize the body’s innate ability to heal and increase circulation to restore sexual function. Unlike prescription medication, the P-Shot® does not have any reported major side effects.
The procedure starts with a simple blood draw in our doctor’s office. The collected blood sample is spun through a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the rest of the sample. Once separated, a serum is formed, which contains extremely high levels of growth factors that are valuable to the healing process. This serum is then injected into areas of the penis that have been numbed for the procedure.
The plasma begins to restore and rejuvenate immediately by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and increasing circulation. Many men report stronger erections, increased pleasure, and enhanced sexual performance after receiving the P-Shot. While most patients see immediate results, keep in mind that every patient responds differently, and it may take up to 2 weeks for some.
Additional Benefits of the P-Shot®:
- Increase in stamina
- Improved sensation and pleasure
- Stronger erections
- May reduce prostate discomfort
- May reduce urinary incontinence
- Possible enhancement of girth or length of the penis
Shockwave Therapy for ED
Shockwave therapy, or acoustic wave therapy, is another effective treatment option for those struggling with erectile dysfunction. Shockwave therapy uses specifically targeted sound waves which, like the P-Shot®, help the body naturally increase blood flow and circulation while stimulating new blood vessel growth in the penile area.
This treatment has shown great promise for men who may not have shown positive results with medications or other traditional treatments. In addition, shockwave therapy offers patients additional benefits due to its lower cost, lower risk level, and little to no side effects or downtime.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Unfortunately, there is no singularly specific cause for ED, so it can be confusing and overwhelming to deal with when you’re not sure what the source is.
Common factors that may contribute to erectile dysfunction may include:
- An enlarged prostate
- Prostate Cancer
- Side effect of a surgical procedure
