An Introduction to P-Shot
A sexual enhancement treatment for men, the Priapus Shot (P shot) is named after the Greek god of fertility. As a result of its painless, noninvasive, and drug-free nature, the treatment has helped thousands of men improve their sexual health over the past decade. In the field of male enhancement, it has proven to be a game-changer.
The P-shot in San Diego is the placement of PR in the penile shaft and glans to treat a multitude of concerns.
Platelet-rich fibrin has been the subject of more than 800 scientific papers. More than 75% of patients report effectiveness, and none report any significant side effects. It is a safe and easy procedure for the treatment of erectile dysfunction among other indications.
Benefits of P-Shot

What to Expect in a P-Shot Procedure:
In the Pre-treatment phase:
- To find out whether you would benefit from a P shot, you need to come in for a consultation with one of our providers.
- We will discuss your options for anesthesia and numbing. Our doctors will take every precaution to ensure you won’t feel a thing. It’s understandable if you are nervous, but the procedure is completely pain free with the correct numbing process.
- We may also recommend simple modifications to your diet and activity prior to the procedure to ensure high quality fibrin.
- Your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to your penis. You also have the option of a nerve block.
- We will draw your blood and process it at the bedside to get the concentrated PRF.
- While the PRF is being made, you can receive a local penile nerve block if you need additional anesthesia.
- Once the PRF is prepared in a centrifuge, usually 5 minutes or less, it is loaded into a syringe and prepared for injection. In a few short injections, the PRF is placed into the shaft and glans of the penis, typically with no discomfort.
- The whole procedure takes less than 30 min and could not be easier.
There is no down-time and you can resume all activities immediately, including sexual activity.
- After 6-8 weeks, your physician will want to see you again to make sure you are satisfied with your treatment, and deliver a second treatment as indicated.
- Depending on what we are treating, you may need 1-3 treatments at 6-8 week intervals and then maintain every 6 months for achieving optimal benefits. Treatment without downtime and without invasive procedures.
- You can resume your normal activities following your shot. There is no need for downtime. You can even have sexual relations the same day you get your shot!
