P-Shot or E-shot for ED
An increasingly talked about and, popular treatment for men with mild erectile dysfunction and early stage Peyronie’s disease is the injection of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the penis to aid in restoring and correcting sexual function.
The treatment is advertised under a number of different names, the two most popular are marketed with the names E-shot and P-Shot; both are based on the same medical principles. The treatments are often confused with ED shots used to temporarily increase a man’s libido or provide temporary erections and are prescribed by a GP.
So, what are the main difference between the E-shot and the P-Shot?
The P-Shot or Priapus shot (Priapus named after the Greek god of procreation) was first developed in America by Dr Charles Runel and is a well-established medical procedure in the USA. The P-Shot and E-shot both follow the same principles of extracting a patient’s blood into a specialist tube and then putting it though a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood at 2400 reps per minute for 10 minutes. The centrifuging separates the blood into different layers of white blood cells, red blood cells and a 1% layer which is the Platelet Rich Plasma. This Platelet Rich Plasma is the most powerful natural material from your ‘life blood’. When injected in any area of your body that is injured or nonperforming, it will immediately accelerate the regenerative and healing process.
