What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is characterized by the inability to maintain an erection that is firm enough for sex. (Mayo Clinic) It’s common to have occasional sexual problems due to stress or other factors. However, medical intervention may be necessary when it becomes a consistent issue.
Erectile dysfunction can also point to underlying health concerns, including heart disease and other serious illnesses. When should you be concerned, then?
You may have erectile dysfunction if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Inability to get an erection
- Inability to keep an erection
- Low or no desire for sex
Erectile dysfunction can stem from both physical and psychological factors. Physical and emotional changes can alter how the body naturally functions. Some causes for erectile dysfunction include, but aren’t limited to:
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Tobacco use
- Low testosterone
In some cases, there are multiple factors that cause erectile dysfunction. Our medical team at Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates takes an individualized approach to your health care needs. We will work with you closely to uncover the underlying cause of your erectile dysfunction and devise a solution that works for you.

Often, you will only need a medical exam and to answer a questionnaire to find out if you have erectile dysfunction. Our multidisciplinary approach to health focuses on the root cause of your concern, not just the symptoms.
To promote whole-body health, we may conduct additional testing to determine what’s causing the erectile problems. These tests can include a urinalysis, a physical exam, blood tests, and a psychological exam.
P-Shot® - Revolutionary ED Treatment Option in Jacksonville
Our clinic offers a revolutionary erectile dysfunction treatment option; the Priapus Shot®. The P-Shot® is a non-invasive, regenerative therapy that stimulates nerve and tissue repair. The therapy uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which increases your body’s natural supply of collagen, a structural protein responsible for a whole host of good things in the body, including tissue repair.
By treating ED at the source, the P-Shot® outperforms other invasive methods while eliminating downtime. In addition to erectile dysfunction, the P-Shot® can be used to treat other erectile issues like urinary incontinence, prostate discomfort, and Peyronie’s disease.
When you choose to use the P-Shot® to treat your erectile dysfunction, you can benefit from the following:
- Improved sensitivity
- Increased sexual stamina
- Better blood flow to the penis
- Stronger and firmer erections
- Increased girth and length of penis

The side effects of P-Shot® therapy stem from the injection itself. Patients may experience mild redness, bruising, or swelling that can last between four to six days following the appointment. Other extremely rare side effects can include pain or signs of allergic reaction. To mitigate these risks, be sure to work with a trusted healthcare provider and disclose all relevant medical information.
Is the P-Shot® Safe?
The P-Shot® is a relatively safe and effective way of treating erectile dysfunction. The treatment is formulated with the patient’s own blood, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction or other harmful side effects.
Additionally, the treatment is non-invasive, so you won’t have to worry about scarring, incisions, or a lengthy downtime. These treatments are also virtually pain-free, so you can get back to your day-to-day life as quickly as possible.
What to Expect When You Get Treatment
The P-Shot® is a relatively simple procedure and takes no more than 30 minutes to complete. There is no preparation needed beforehand, and you can go about your regular activities afterward. During treatment, our team will work to make you as comfortable as possible and do everything we can to make things go smoothly.
When you book erectile dysfunction treatment with us, you can expect the following.
- Extract Blood: We will take a sample of your blood and put it into a centrifuge machine, separating the blood cells from the plasma resulting in PRP.
- Apply Anesthetic: We will apply a local anesthetic to numb the injection site.
- Administer Injection: The physician will inject the PRP directly into the penis using a needle.
- Discuss Next Steps: We will discuss your aftercare, including any future treatment sessions, what you can expect, and set you up with additional tools to aid your treatment process.
Some patients can see positive changes immediately after their first session. Yet, in most cases, significant changes are seen after the 3rd or 4th week following treatment. In addition, some patients may require additional care, including more treatment sessions or adding a penis pump to their treatment before they see a major difference in their erectile dysfunction.
Our medical team at Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates takes the time needed to get to know you and your unique needs. We’ll work with you to create a customized plan to successfully manage your ED.
