While male enhancement pills may come with a host of side effects, alternative treatments for obtaining male sexual enhancement have provided another option for those seeking therapy. Two non-pill therapies include:
- The Priapus Shot, known commonly as P-Shot®
- GAINSWave® Therapy
In order to avoid side effects that come with traditional male enhancement methods, some men are seeking alternatives to male enhancement pills with these treatments.
The Risks Associated With Male Enhancement Pills
Men seeking male enhancement deserve to experience the benefits of those treatments without suffering from a slew of side effects shortly after.
According to an academic article published by the National Institutes of Health, some of the side effects listed for male enhancement pills include:
- Back pain
- Blurred vision
- A blue tinge to vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Sinus irritation
Making matters worse, some male enhancement pills may contain counterfeit ingredients, making it impossible to say for certain whether they are safe for consumption, according to the same study. These serious side effects are among the reasons why men across the world are trying relatively new treatments for improving their sexual performance.
GAINSWave and the P-Shot Provide Another Option For Male Enhancement
The emergence of stem cells and the various forms of treatment that rely on them have opened new doors to therapies aimed at improving sexual performance. Two treatments that are being administered with regularity are the Priapus Shot (P-Shot) and a particular brand of low-intensity shockwave therapy known as GAINSWave Therapy.
The P-Shot May Promote Tissue Growth and Improved Sexual Function
The Priapus Shot, known to most as the P-Shot, requires the injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the penis, with numbing cream playing a central role in the process. Plasma in our blood promotes cell growth. Increasing the amount of plasma in a man’s penis may increase blood flow, and by extension, the quality of his erections, according to the Journal of Sexual Medicine. A study published in that journal examined the effectiveness of injecting subjects experiencing erectile dysfunction with platelet-rich plasma—the same procedure administered under the name ‘The P-Shot’. Some subjects in the study experienced “significant recovery” of erectile function during the observed period.
Another study published in European Urology Focus found that injecting bone-marrow-derived stem cells into the penis may improve erectile function. This injection of growth cells mirrors the process that is completed when men receive a P-Shot injection. The subjects in both of these studies experienced no serious side effects.
Platelet-rich plasma is not a brand-new treatment. It has been applied for years to treat various deficiencies, by:
- Reducing knee pain and helping restore healthy function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee joint
- Helping grow hair in those who suffer from androgenic alopecia
- Helping various other parts of the body recover after surgery
Everybody who uses the P-Shot is a unique biological being, and results may vary accordingly.
GAINSWave Therapy Provides Another Alternative For Male Enhancement
GAINSWave therapy is a form of low-intensity shockwave therapy (LIST), and along with the P-Shot, it is another way that men may be able to achieve male sexual enhancement without taking a single pill.
GAINSWave therapy entails low-intensity sound waves passing through the tissue in a man’s penis. The desired outcome is the removal of plaque in his blood vessels, the promotion of blood flow, and the establishment of new blood cells to his penis.
Sexual Medicine reported that the majority of patients suffering from erectile dysfunction in one study that implemented low-intensity shockwave therapy saw an improvement in sexual health that lasted up to 12 months. In another study published in Therapeutic Advances in Urology, patients with erectile dysfunction experienced improved blood flow and penile function after undergoing low-intensity shockwave therapy, the general term that includes GAINSWave therapy.
