An Overview of ED - Diagnosis and Management

Erectile Dysfunction as a male sexual disorder not only reduces the quality of life of the person suffering from it but also their partners.

Although ED is associated more with increasing age, a significant number of young men experience it as well. Other factors could include depression, obesity, lack of exercise, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease and lower urinary tract symptoms related to benign prostatic hyperplasia.

The Evaluation Process of Erectile Dysfunction

A full medical history- including personally and culturally sensitive history is recorded by the urologist after a full physical and mental exam. He carries out a focused clinical examination- including physical and mental status. Questions like- how would you rate your confidence of getting and keeping erection, how often your penis is firm enough for intercourse upon sexual stimulation, how often you are able to maintain an erection during sexual intercourse and how often you find sexual intercourse satisfying among other questions. They may order tests like fasting glucose levels, a fasting lipid profile and, a total testosterone level and a prostate-specific antigen test in case the need arises. A nocturnal penile tumescence study is one such test. This is a method for determining how frequently you have erections while sleeping. A Doppler ultrasonography of the blood arteries in the penis is another test that may be performed. This test determines how well blood flows in your penis.

Your doctor may be unable to provide you with a particular cause for your impotence. However, many of the therapies are effective regardless of what created the condition. As a result, comprehensive testing may not be required.

Avenues for treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

Treatment of ED necessitates lifestyle changes, the elimination of concomitant vascular risk factors, and the treatment of biological or psychosexual dysfunction using medication alone or in conjunction with psychosexual therapy. However, with the advances in medical science, in this article we describe a solution called P-Shot®. It is available at Gousse Urology.

What is a P-Shot®?

The P-Shot® is a Priapus Shot, which is a kind of platelet-rich plasma treatment. It is a non-surgical treatment in which a urologist uses a specific centrifuge apparatus to collect platelet-rich plasma from a patient's blood. After isolating the platelet-rich plasma, it is injected into the penis.

The plasma's growth factors will stimulate the patient's stem cells, making it easier to have an erection. Before the injections, the urologist will apply a local anesthetic to the sensitive parts of the penis. As a result, the operation is a painless procedure.

What are the Benefits of a P-Shot®?

The P-Shot® is a fairly comprehensive solution to ED because it stimulates the necessary biological responses in the body to allow you to get erections again without using any artificial drugs or ingredients or even fancy devices thus eliminating the need to worry about negative side effects from unnatural treatments like Viagra or penile supports.

The biggest benefit of P-Shot, however, is after getting it done you get an enhanced ability to form a longer and harder erection. Additionally, you may also experience more sexual stamina, penis sensation, sexual pleasure, and a larger penis in general. This also results in a better self-esteem.

How Is the P-Shot® Procedure Performed?

The P-Shot® method begins with extracting a blood sample and placing it in an FDA-approved centrifuge equipment. The blood is then rotated within the device to separate the platelet-rich plasma from it. Following separation, the platelet-rich plasma is transformed into a platelet-rich plasma matrix.

The urologist will numb the parts of the penis that will be injected. The urologist will inject the platelet-rich plasma matrix solution into the sensitive parts of the penis after the penis has been numbed. The treatment is quick and painless.

There is no recovery period following the surgery. The usual patient may resume their normal daily activities as soon as they leave our Miami clinic.

How fast can I see My P-Shot® Results?

Although the results differ for different patients, most of them notice the effects soon after the P-Shot® is administered. Once enough time is given to the body to repair the tissue damage and rebuild the blood vessels, it is easy to see the results in that you feel more blood flow circulating to your penis.
