Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as a man not being able to achieve or maintain an erection. The condition affects over 30 million men in the United States. ED can contribute to a lack of self-confidence and relationship problems. ED can be caused by physical or psychological problems.
Metabolic syndrome (combination of increased abdominal girth, insulin resistance, hypertension, and high cholesterol)
Prostate conditions and treatments (radiation, surgery, medications)
Hormonal: low testosterone, high estradiol, high prolactin, low GH
Psychological causes of ED:
Medication Treatment Options:
These medications all work by enhancing the effects of nitric oxide, which is a natural body chemical that causes relaxation of penile muscles and increases blood flow. Sexual stimulation is still required to release nitric oxide from penile nerves. The drugs vary in how long they work and potential side effects (flushing, headaches, visual alterations, upset stomach, back pain, and nasal congestion). Additionally, the drugs may be less effective if you have diabetes or an underlying heart condition. If you take nitrates for chest pain, have heart disease, congestive heart failure, or low blood pressure, these medications would not be recommended.
P-shot® vs. The Mojo Shot™️
After a thorough evaluation, the Mojo Shot™️ may be recommended. The Mojo Shot™️ differs from the P-shot® in that platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is used and not platelet rich plasma (PRP).
PRF has 3X more growth factors from white blood cells as well as platelets
PRF growth factors are released more gradually, being expressed more strongly, and have a more durable effect on cell growth and differentiation
The slower release allows the body to take greater advantage of the growth factors. The analogy that we like to use is that you can build a stronger and more durable structure if you have a sound foundation upon which to build
PRF is also 100% natural as it avoids the use of additives
PRF is also preferred as it contains stem cells and PRP does not contain stem cells
The Mojo Shot™️ is obtained by drawing your blood and, through a special centrifuge spin process, a layer containing white blood cells, fibrin, platelets, and stems cells is isolated.
The Mojo Shot™️ is not a medication, but instead is a form of advanced stem cell therapy. Stem cells have the wonderful capacity to develop into specialized cell types, from muscle cells to brain cells, depending on where they are injected. By using your undifferentiated stem cells to stimulate your body’s natural production process, new cells in and around the injection sites are produced. This platelet matrix contains numerous growth factors that result in cell division, collagen production, new blood flow, and cell differentiation.
Local anesthetic is applied along with a dorsal nerve penile block. The PRF is injected into the corpora cavernosa (erectile bodies) of the penis and also into the glans. There is no down time after the injection. There may be temporary bruising from the injection.
It is possible that The Mojo Shot™️ will lead to an increase in length and girth of the penis (one half inch or more). One of the several growth factors thought to be responsible for this is IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor or somatomedin C).
Additionally, over 50% of men may experience a firmer and more durable erection. Results may vary and results cannot be guaranteed as there will be individual variation in responses. Sexual function is complex and involves hormones, good blood flow, healthy nerve supply in addition to the psychological and social factors. A healthy lifestyle is important as obesity, smoking, marijuana use, poor nutrition and excessive alcohol consumption can have detrimental effects on sexual function.
Use of a penile vacuum pump after injection is recommended along with other supplements to improve circulation.
