Symptoms of ED

You may notice changes in your sexual drive throughout your life. Those changes or changes in your erections come and go. However, ED comes when a person chronically experiences difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection and a generally reduced libido (sex drive). As men age, parts of their bodies, including the penile area weakens. PRP therapy can combat this effect. 

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves injections that reduce inflammation and lead to healing in the target area. Researchers have used PRP to increase cell development and regeneration. PRP has been used by athletes to heal injuries and people struggling with osteoarthritis to experience less joint pain. 

Platelets and ED Therapy

According to the International Society for Sexual Health (ISSH), for treating ED, men receive PRP therapy through a “Priapus shot” or “P shot” to improve their erections. Of the many therapies available for men experiencing ED, PRP might be one of the most natural as it uses your own platelets.

When someone gets a cut, their platelets stop the bleeding. These small blood cells help clot the blood to stop the flow. Platelets also help the injured area begin to heal. In PRP therapy, medical professionals isolate these platelets from a patient’s blood then add them to an area to encourage development.

Patients who receive PRP therapy report having an uptick in their self-confidence, added sensation and sexual pleasure while bringing back intimacy in their relationships.
