Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a breakthrough medical procedure for men with Peyronie’s Disease and erectile dysfunction.
Men with Peyronie’s Disease have a curved penis. In some men, the curve does not present any problems. Sometimes their partners even find their curved penis oddly attractive and exciting. However, Peyronie’s disease can also cause ED, or erectile dysfunction.
For these men with Peyronie’s and ED, they sometimes turn to Viagra, or similar oral ED medications for help. But, is taking Viagra a good idea for men with Peyronie’s?
Let’s take a closer look.
Peyronie’s Disease and Viagra
Peyronie’s disease is characterized by fibrous scar tissue that forms beneath the surface of the penis. This scar tissue can often make it difficult or impossible to have a normal erection. The number of men with Peyronie’s who also have ED is quite high, with nearly 80% of men with Peyronie’s disease also reporting some degree of ED.
Interestingly enough, doctors who treat men with Peyronie’s disease, think that the increased public awareness of ED that drugs like Viagra created, also led to more men seeking treatment for Peyronie’s. However, Viagra is not a preferred ED treatment for men with Peyronie’s and ED.
In fact, Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra warns, “Viagra should be used with caution in patients with anatomical deformation of the penis (such as angulation, cavernosal fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease).”
I treat men with Peyronie’s, and I treat men with ED. I can assure you, that warning is valid. It can be painful and dangerous for men with Peyronie’s disease to take Viagra. The problem is, the way Viagra works. Viagra increases blood flow to the penis, but it cannot do anything to lessen the scar tissue causing Peyronie’s. In a way, ED in men with Peyronie’s is a kind of defense mechanism. Not being able to get an erection, prevents you from further damaging the penis. Taking an Oral ED medication like Viagra, can force a man with Peyronie’s to get a painful erection. That forced erection can even create more scarring and make the Peyronie’s worse!
PRP the Alternative to Conventional Treatments for Peyronie’s
Platelet Rich Plasma is an ideal alternative for men seeking an all-natural, drug-free and surgery free alternative treatment for Peyronie’s.
PRP for Peyronie’s Disease does not require taking potentially dangerous drugs, or having invasive surgery. PRP was a procedure that was originally developed as a drug-free treatment for any man with ED. As it turns out, it is also the ideal treatment for men with Peyronie’s disease and ED.
The Gains Enhancement® or the P-shot for Peyronie’s disease both use PRP to treat men with ED and Peyronie’s. Instead of using drugs or complicated surgeries, these clinically proven medical procedures use your own blood!
The key is something know as Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP is created by separating stem cells, and healing proteins from the red and white blood cells normally found in a sample of your blood.
When painlessly injected into the penis, PRP increases blood flow, and restores your ability to get an erection. However, unlike Viagra, it not only increases blood flow, it stimulates the healing and regrowth of erectile tissue damaged by Peyronie’s Disease.
PRP for Peyronie’s has been shown to restore normal erectile function, and also straighten out the curve typical of the disease. This makes the Gains Enhancement® an effective treatment for Peyronie’s disease, even in men with the condition who do not have erectile dysfunction.
