What Is the P-Shot?

If you’ve heard about the Priapus Shot®, sometimes called the P-shot, and you’re intrigued, Dr. Fadi Bacha can help satisfy your curiosity — and perhaps solve an embarrassing or uncomfortable problem. The P-shot helps men regain sexual function. Whether you’re looking to increase your size, endurance, or to heighten sensation, the Priapus shot may be right for you.

The P-Shot contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a substance that’s been used for many years to treat soft tissue injuries. It’s extracted from your own blood, and is filled with proteins and growth factors that stimulate tissue repair.

Your own body manufactures the ingredients

In order to get PRP, Dr. Bacha draws a small amount of blood from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge, separating its components into layers. The platelet-rich plasma is retrieved and then injected into the penis.

A very low risk procedure

Because the PRP in the P-shot is extracted from your own blood, there is almost no chance of you being allergic to it, or your body reacting badly to it. Any injection or procedure inherently carries some small risk — an injection is an opening and germs or bacteria could conceivably enter such an opening.

However, in a medical setting such as the Anti-Aging Institute, the risks that do exist are reduced even further. Compared to other ED treatments, such as a drug or an implanted device, the P-shot has the least risk.

It’s more than one shot, but don’t worry

If the idea of a shot in your penis is disturbing, you’re not going to like the next sentence: Usually the P-shot consists of about five injections.

But no worries, because the needles Dr. Bacha uses to administer the P-shot are very fine, and before you get the first one, he treats the area with a numbing cream. In addition to the numbing cream, Dr. Bacha offers PRO-NOX, which is a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen that provides exceptional relief from pain and anxiety.

Some patients have gotten the P-shot without any anesthesia at all, and say it’s similar to having blood drawn. Getting the P-shot, even if it’s five injections, shouldn’t hurt.

Return to normal activity immediately

You won’t need a long recovery period -- or really any recovery period at all -- after your appointment. You may have some mild bruising, but it shouldn’t stop you from doing whatever you want to do, even if what you want to do is have sex.

When you’ll see results

The lack of side effects is nice, but you’re probably wondering when you’ll see the results you’re expecting. The answer is right away. According to the researcher who developed the P-shot, your penis will immediately be larger, have improved circulation, and more strength.

Most men report that the effects of the P-shot last about a year, but some find that it works for as long as 18 months. You may find that an annual P-shot keeps you in good working order.
