Myths and truths about the penile injection aka P-Shot

Advances in technology and the introduction of the P-Shot® (aka penile injection) have made it easier than ever to enjoy a truly fulfilling and satisfactory sexual life. As men and women get older, they want to keep up their sexual vitality and energy.

Until now, medication has been the primary route to treat sexual dysfunction, but in recent years the use of regenerative injections have been at the top of the research showing significant progress. The P-Shot has been shown to treat sexual dysfunction in men and even medical conditions like Peyronie’s disease.  

How does the P-Shot work for erectile dysfunction?

An erection requires blood flow. A pharmacological solution like Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, etc., works by temporarily increasing the blood flow to the penis, therefore enabling an erection for a short period of time.

Regenerative injections likewise increase blood flow to the penis but have a longer-term effect: they are able to strengthen the physical mechanisms involved in blood circulation to the penis and even repair weak blood vessels. This provides a lasting solution to weak erections and Peyronie’s disease by directly addressing the physiological cause of the dysfunction.

Regenerative injections can provide a much more lasting and powerful solution by working in synergy with your own body without the risk of potentially dangerous medications .

With few to no side effects and virtually no down time, regenerative injections have become the preferred treatment over expensive and potentially dangerous prescription pills.

What are some of the most common misconceptions and ideas about the P-Shot?

  • The P-Shot hurts.

False. The pain of the P-Shot is very well tolerated. The treatment area is numbed. Then a very small needle is used for the injections. The whole procedure takes no longer than 20 minutes, and residual soreness (if any) will resolve within a couple of hours.

  • The procedure will leave a scar.

False. The injection site will heal without any visible marks within 2 weeks, leaving absolutely no marks or scars.

  • Is the P-Shot is a safe procedure?

Yes. Regenerative injections use biological substances and proteins found in your own blood plasma plus stem cells to activate the body’s healing mechanisms. Since these substances are organic and usually come from your own body, there is little to NO RISK of rejection. This is one of the reasons injections are the preferred solution; conventional medications usually come with a plethora of unwanted side effects. 

  • Am I in for a long recovery?

No. The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes to perform using a tiny needle. It is performed in the comfort of our offices, and you can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.

  1. For an introduction my name Brad Brian, my daughter, Erin Rutland was your patient and so is my friend Wayne Tipton.
    My question is that I had my prostate removed 9 years ago and tried pills, pump etc to get an erection since my surgery. The only thing that works is an injection 15 minutes prior to having sex. It really works but would the P-shot be a more permanent answer? Also, I have the condition Peyronie Disease. Will the P-shot help this as well?
