Erectile Dysfunction (impotence) is the inability or problem maintaining an erection long enough to perform sexual activity. Erectile Dysfunction is a rather common symptom that affects up to 52% of men in America and can be caused by several health issues such as:
- Low Testosterone
- Uncontrolled Diabetes
- Uncontrolled Hypertension
- Elevated Cholesterol
- Post-Prostate Removal
- Psychological factors such as Anxiety and Depression
- Issues Achieving/Maintaining an Erection
- Decreased Sensation
- Poor Sexual Performance
- Decreased Girth
- Decreased Sensation
The E.D. Shot
The ED Shot is a non-surgical painless injection for men that uses platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is obtained from the patient’s own blood serum to help improve erections. Small amounts of PRP are injected along both sides of the shaft of the penis. The total procedure takes less than 10 minutes to perform and results are typically immediate!
So how does PRP help with my erectile problems?
PRP provides several growth factors, which helps to improve and regenerate new blood vessels and nerve endings, leaving you with better circulation, sensation and stronger erections.
Every patient’s experience is different, but some of the common benefits you can experience include:
- Increased blood flood flow
- Increased Stamina
- Increased Pleasure and Sensation
Typically, there will be a 10% – 20% increase in length and girth.
Most men are quite comfortable during the procedure. The discomfort is often described as a mild pinch or sometimes a bit of mild pressure. The numbing feeling from the numbing medicine may last 30-60 minutes after the procedure.
There are typically no side effects or downtime. Occasionally there is a brief period of mild soreness, typically lasting less than a day. You can return to work, exercise and do any other activity you wish on the same day, including sexual activity.
After numbing, the injections take no longer than 10 minutes.
Initially, there will be a volume increase from the combination of the platelets and the serum (or water) in the blood, plus all the growth factors in the water that the activated platelets are starting to release. Some of the water is then absorbed by the body over the next three days. Then there is the growth of new tissue that continues for at least 12 weeks.
As for sexual function, some men report immediate results; however, realistically most men should expect about four weeks to pass before they notice any significant improvements. The E.D. shot will work best if a man has his hormones (particularly testosterone) well-balanced.
