P-Shot Q & A
What is the P-Shot?
The P-shot is a nonsurgical, groundbreaking treatment for erectile dysfunction that improves your sex life through the power of your own blood. The P-Shot is based on highly effective platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy. Sports medicine physicians and surgeons have used PRP for more than a decade to accelerate wound healing and promote new tissue growth.
What is PRP?
Dr. Lasater creates PRP by withdrawing a small amount of blood from your arm and separating out the liquid and solid components. This process creates a high concentration of the blood solids known as platelets, which are full of stem cells, growth factors, and other substances the body uses to heal wounds and create healthy new tissue.
How can I tell if I need a P-Shot?
When you consult with Dr. Lasater, he asks you to fill out a five-question erectile dysfunction intensity scale questionnaire. You may benefit from the P-Shot if you rarely, sometimes, or always:
- Have trouble achieving an erection
- Don’t get hard enough to penetrate
- Can’t penetrate
- Have trouble maintaining an erection
- Can’t finish the sexual act
The P-Shot should result in at least a 1-point improvement on all five questions.
What happens when I get a P-Shot?
First, you apply numbing cream to your penis. Then Dr. Lasater injects PRP into either side of the shaft, either side of the head, and in the glans.
How many treatments do I need?
You may need up to two P-Shots, spaced at least eight weeks apart. To maintain your benefits, you may wish to get a P-Shot every six months to a year.
Does the P-Shot cure erectile dysfunction?
The P-shot doesn’t completely resolve all erectile issues. You may still have times when achieving or maintaining a full erection is an issue. However, most men can decrease their reliance on erectile dysfunction drugs, such as Viagra.
Can I use the P-shot even if I don’t have erectile dysfunction?
The P-shot is a medical therapy for erectile dysfunction. You shouldn’t use the P-shot to try to enlarge the size of your penis or to increase potency.
