“My erections were always painful, and Peyronie’s was an issue I just gotten used to in the bedroom. Now that’s completely changed.”


PRP is in the category of regenerative autologous treatments, which means it comes from your own blood and can stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Platelets are one of the cells in our blood and when activated, they can release growth factors and other proteins.

PRP Shots involve taking platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your penis. This means your doctor takes your own cells and tissues and injects them into your penile tissues to promote tissue growth and purportedly give you better erections.

Benefits of PRP Shots

  • Stronger, firmer erections
  • Easier to achieve and maintain erections
  • Increased penile length and girth
  • Improvement in or resolution of penile curvature from Peyronie’s Disease
  • Resolution of penile pain with erection
  • Increased sensitivity in the penis
  • Better overall blood flow to the penis

What to expect during your appointment

The PRP-Shot is an outpatient procedure, so you can go in, have it done, and be out later that day. You may want to take a day off work or other responsibilities to allow yourself enough time to get it done, but this isn’t necessary.

When you arrive at the facility, you’ll likely be asked to lie down on a table and wait for the doctor to begin. Once the procedure begins, the doctor or assistant will:

  1. Apply a cream or ointment that numbs the genital area and give you a local anesthetic that numbs the area around it, too.
  2. Take a blood sample from your body, usually from your arm or somewhere non-invasive, into a testing tube.
  3. Put the testing tube in a centrifuge for a few minutes to separate the components of your blood and isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
  4. Extract PRP from the testing tube fluid and put them into two separate syringes for injection.
  5. Inject PRP into the penile shaft.
  6. Give a penis pump to people who received an injection into the penile shaft. This helps draw blood into the penis and ensure the PRP is working as intended. You will be asked to use the penis pump on yourself for 10 minutes daily for a few weeks.

Potential side effects and complications

You’ll probably have some minor side effects from the injection that should go away in about four to six days, including:

  • swelling
  • redness
  • bruises

Some rare complications may include:

  • infection
  • scarring
  • outbreaks of cold sores if you have a history of herpes simplex virus

What to expect during recovery

Recovery is quick. You should be able to resume normal activities, like work or school, the same day or the next.

Avoid having sexual intercourse for a couple of days after the procedure to avoid infecting the injection sites. Try to limit intense physical activity for a couple days, too, so that sweating or chafing doesn’t irritate the area.

When should you see results?

Your results can vary widely based on your overall health as well as other factors that may be contributing to your sexual function. Some people see results right away after one treatment. Others may not experience results for several months or until they’ve received multiple treatments.
