Frequently Asked Questions

What is the P-Shot?

The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot, is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) into the penis to treat erectile dysfunction, improve sexual function and enhance penis size.

How does the P-Shot work?
The P-Shot works by injecting PRP into the penis, which contains highly concentrated growth factors that promote tissue regeneration, stimulates new blood vessel formation and increases blood flow. The procedure triggers a natural healing process, while in-turn stimulating the surrounding tissue of the penis and ultimately leads to improved penile function and growth.
Is the P-Shot safe?

The P-Shot is considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced provider. PRP is a natural substance derived from your own blood, which reduces the risk of any adverse reactions such as allergies.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure is performed in the clinic under local anaesthetic and takes 30 minutes to complete.

Is there a recovery period or downtime required after the procedure?

No, there is no recovery period or downtime required after the procedure and patients can typically continue normal lifestyle activities from the next day.

What results can I expect from the P-Shot?

You can expect improved sexual function, increased penis size, and enhanced overall performance after the P-Shot. The results can last for several months, depending on the individual’s metabolism and lifestyle.

When will I see results from the P-Shot?

Results from the P-Shot may vary from person to person, but most patients start to notice improvements in their sexual function within a few days to a few weeks after the procedure. The full effects of the P-Shot can typically be seen within 4 to 6 weeks. The duration of the results can vary based on individual’s medical history, metabolism and lifestyle, but most patients can expect the effects to last for several months depending on the severity of erectile dysfunction.

Patients with moderate to severe dysfunction will have more benefit from multiple sessions. Current research suggests a total of 3 sessions spaced four weeks apart to yield the most satisfying results. 

It’s important to have realistic expectations and discuss the results you can expect with your provider before the procedure.

Are there any side effects associated with the P-Shot?

The P-Shot is considered to be a safe and natural treatment for erectile dysfunction as PRP is derived from one’s own blood, therefore reducing the risk of any adverse effects. Like any procedure, there may be some side effects associated with the P-Shot. These may include bruising, swelling, redness, and discomfort at the injection site, which typically resolve on their own within a day.

Is this procedure covered by medical aid?

At present, this procedure is not covered by medical insurance as it is considered cosmetic.
