If poor quality erections are negatively impacting your sex life, weight loss and changes to your lifestyle, stress level, and diet might be beneficial. You can also seek professional medical assistance to help you get and keep erections that are firm and last long enough to allow for satisfying sexual intercourse. Your health care provider can offer treatment options and discuss how you can improve your erection quality.
If you are a man whose sex life is being affected by weak or poor-quality erections, you do not have to live with the interruption to your sex life. A simple, non-invasive procedure called the P-Shot® can help you return to healthy sexual function. It can allow you to have sex at your preferred frequency and limit or eliminate performance concerns or anxiety.
What Causes Poor Quality Erections?
Poor quality and ineffective erections can have multiple causes. Poor health, psychological, and emotional factors can all play a role. According to Mayo Clinic research, commonly reported causes can include:
- Heart disease
- Low testosterone
- High blood pressure
Their research also cites many psychological issues that can lead to weak erections. These can include:
- Relationship trouble
- Lack of communication
The first step toward getting effective treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) is understanding its causes and underlying factors. The best way to understand the cause of your ED and to find effective treatment options is by having a straightforward and open conversation with your health care or wellness provider.

Which Men Are Likely to Experience Low-Quality Erections?
Low quality, ineffective erections are a sign of erectile dysfunction which can affect men of any age. According to Merck Manual research, nearly half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70 will experience some form of ED during their lifetime. However, it is not an inevitable part of aging and typically responds well to treatment.
Risk factors of erectile dysfunction can include:
- Decreased blood flow
- Hardening of the arteries
- Surgical complications
- Some medications
- Blood vessel disorders
- Nervous system disorders
In addition, certain lifestyle indicators can put men at risk of ED. These can include smoking, being overweight, depression, a stressful career or relationship, anxiety, and the use of drugs and alcohol.
Peyronie’s disease — a condition that causes a curved penis — can also result in weak erections. According to Mayo Clinic research, it is caused by the formation of tough, fibrous scar tissue that can lead to erections that are uncomfortable and curved. It can curtail your sex life by making it difficult to achieve or sustain an erection long enough to have or complete having sex.
In very rare cases, Peyronie’s disease will resolve on its own without treatment. In most men, delaying or entirely avoiding treatment can cause the condition to persist or grow worse. Prompt diagnosis can lead to effective treatment that can resolve your erectile dysfunction.
Is Treatment Available for Poor Quality Erections and Peyronie’s Disease?
ED can be treated and successfully resolved in most men. That means the help you need to restore your sexual health is available. One form of treatment — the P-Shot® — is readily available. The therapy is in the form of an injection using your own concentrated platelet-rich plasma. As the P-Shot® takes effect, you may benefit from:
- Greater penis sensitivity
- An increase in stamina
- Increased blood flow
- Increased length and girth
- Better quality erections
Premature ejaculation is also a cause of ED and can be resolved with P-Shot® treatment. Your health care provider will review the treatment with you and explain more about its features and benefits.
How does P-Shot® Therapy Work?
Because the primary cause of weak or unachievable erections is diminished blood flow to the penis, the P-Shot® can offer desired relief. It uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) extracted from the plasma in your own blood. PRPs are removed from your plasma, concentrated, and reinjected into your body through your penis. Here is how it works:
- Your blood is drawn
- Platelets are extracted
- The injection site is numbed
- The P-Shot® is administered
This infusion or PRPs can help increase penile blood flow and lead to stronger, longer-lasting erections that allow you to have satisfying sexual intercourse. It is also beneficial in treating Peyronie’s disease, prostate pain, and other male sexual and urinary health care challenges. The treatment is non-invasive and can often produce results as quickly as the same-day treatment is administered.
