Priapus Shot Q & A

What is the Priapus Shot®?

The Priapus Shot is a type of regenerative medicine that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve the stiffness and girth of your erections while boosting overall sexual function. The procedure is named for the Greek god of sexual health, Priapus.

Getting a Priapus Shot is a quick, outpatient procedure. There’s no downtime, so you can return to work or other routine activities immediately following your appointment.


What conditions can the Priapus Shot treat?

At Optimal Men’s Center, Mr. Knight uses the Priapus Shot to treat various men’s sexual health problems, including:

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Skin-related conditions that affect the genitals like lichen sclerosus
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Poor sexual function or performance

You might also benefit from the Priapus Shot if you’re unhappy with the size or appearance of your erections. A growing body of research suggests the Priapus Shot can enhance the girth of your penis and orgasms.


What happens during a Priapus Shot appointment?

A Priapus Shot appointment begins with a comprehensive physical exam, a discussion of your lifestyle and goals for treatment, and a review of your medical history. Mr. Knight then draws a sample of your blood and puts it into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins at a rapid pace, separating the platelets from the rest of your blood.

Mr. Knight applies a topical numbing cream to your penis, transfers your platelets into a syringe, and administers several quick injections. The entire procedure lasts about an hour and results in no pain or discomfort. 

The high concentration of platelets increases blood flow to your penis, repairs damaged nerves and tissue cells, and creates new neural pathways to increase sensitivity and pleasure. 


Is the Priapus Shot painful?

The Priapus Shot is safe and usually well-tolerated. Following your injections, it’s normal to experience mild side-effects for a day or two, including swelling, redness, and bruises. As your body heals, avoid having sexual intercourse for at least a couple of days. You should also avoid strenuous exercise or physically demanding activities like bending and lifting.


When will I experience results from my Priapus Shot?

The results of the Priapus Shot vary depending on your health history and the cause of your erectile dysfunction. Many men experience a significant improvement in their symptoms after just one shot. Other men require several Priapus Shot injections over several months.

Be patient and follow Mr. Knight’s instructions carefully. It can take up to three or four months to achieve your desired outcomes, but the wait is well worth it.
