URINARY INCONTINENCE

PENILE ENHANCEMENT

 

URINARY INCONTINENCE

- THE LOSS OF BLADDER CONTROL -  is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong you don't get to a toilet in time.

Though it occurs more often as people get older, urinary incontinence isn't an inevitable consequence of aging. If urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don't hesitate to see your doctor. For most people, simple lifestyle changes or medical treatment can ease discomfort or stop urinary incontinence.

SYMPTOMS

Many people experience occasional, minor leaks of urine. Others may lose small to moderate amounts of urine more frequently.

Types of urinary incontinence include:

 

  • Stress incontinence. Urine leaks when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.

  • Urge incontinence. You have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. You may need to urinate often, including throughout the night. Urge incontinence may be caused by a minor condition, such as infection, or a more-severe condition such as a neurologic disorder or diabetes.

  • Overflow incontinence. You experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn't empty completely.

  • Functional incontinence. A physical or mental impairment keeps you from making it to the toilet in time. For example, if you have severe arthritis, you may not be able to unbutton your pants quickly enough.

  • Mixed incontinence. You experience more than one type of urinary incontinence.

 

When to see a doctor

 

You may feel uncomfortable discussing incontinence with your doctor. But if incontinence is frequent or is affecting your quality of life, it's important to seek medical advice because urinary incontinence may:

 

  • Indicate a more-serious underlying condition

  • Cause you to restrict your activities and limit your social interactions

  • Increase the risk of falls in older adults as they rush to the toilet

CAUSES

Urinary incontinence isn't a disease, it's a symptom. It can be caused by everyday habits, underlying medical conditions or physical problems. A thorough evaluation by your doctor can help determine what's behind your incontinence.

Temporary urinary incontinence

 

Certain drinks, foods, and medications may act as diuretics — stimulating your bladder and increasing your volume of urine. They include:

  • Alcohol

  • Caffeine

  • Carbonated drinks and sparkling water

  • Artificial sweeteners

  • Chocolate

  • Chili peppers

  • Foods that are high in spice, sugar or acid, especially citrus fruits

  • Heart and blood pressure medications, sedatives, and muscle relaxants

  • Large doses of vitamin C

 

Urinary incontinence may also be caused by an easily treatable medical condition, such as:

  • Urinary tract infection. Infections can irritate your bladder, causing you to have strong urges to urinate, and sometimes incontinence.

  • Constipation. The rectum is located near the bladder and shares many of the same nerves. Hard, compacted stool in your rectum causes these nerves to be overactive and increase urinary frequency.​

 

Persistent urinary incontinence

 

Urinary incontinence can also be a persistent condition caused by underlying physical problems or changes, including:

  • Pregnancy. Hormonal changes and the increased weight of the fetus can lead to stress incontinence.

  • Childbirth. Vaginal delivery can weaken muscles needed for bladder control and also damage bladder nerves and supportive tissue, leading to a dropped (prolapsed) pelvic floor. With prolapse, the bladder, uterus, rectum or small intestine can get pushed down from the usual position and protrude into the vagina. Such protrusions can be associated with incontinence.

  • Changes with age. Aging of the bladder muscle can decrease the bladder's capacity to store urine. Also, involuntary bladder contractions become more frequent as you get older.

  • Menopause. After menopause women produce less estrogen, a hormone that helps keep the lining of the bladder and urethra healthy. Deterioration of these tissues can aggravate incontinence.

  • Hysterectomy. In women, the bladder and uterus are supported by many of the same muscles and ligaments. Any surgery that involves a woman's reproductive system, including removal of the uterus, may damage the supporting pelvic floor muscles, which can lead to incontinence.

  • Enlarged prostate. Especially in older men, incontinence often stems from enlargement of the prostate gland, a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia.

  • Prostate cancer. In men, stress incontinence or urge incontinence can be associated with untreated prostate cancer. But more often, incontinence is a side effect of treatments for prostate cancer.

  • Obstruction. A tumor anywhere along your urinary tract can block the normal flow of urine, leading to overflow incontinence. Urinary stones — hard, stone-like masses that form in the bladder — sometimes cause urine leakage.

  • Neurological disorders. Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, a stroke, a brain tumor or a spinal injury can interfere with nerve signals involved in bladder control, causing urinary incontinence.

RISK FACTORS

Factors that increase your risk of developing urinary incontinence include:

  • Gender. Women are more likely to have stress incontinence. Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and normal female anatomy account for this difference. However, men with prostate gland problems are at increased risk of urge and overflow incontinence.

  • Age. As you get older, the muscles in your bladder and urethra lose some of their strength. Changes with age reduce how much your bladder can hold and increase the chances of involuntary urine release.

  • Being overweight. Extra weight increases pressure on your bladder and surrounding muscles, which weakens them and allows urine to leak out when you cough or sneeze.

  • Smoking. Tobacco use may increase your risk of urinary incontinence.

  • Family history. If a close family member has urinary incontinence, especially urge incontinence, your risk of developing the condition is higher.

  • Other diseases. Neurological disease or diabetes may increase your risk of incontinence.

COMPLICATIONS

Complications of chronic urinary incontinence include:

  • Skin problems. Rashes, skin infections and sores can develop from constantly wet skin.

  • Urinary tract infections. Incontinence increases your risk of repeated urinary tract infections.

  • Impacts on your personal life. Urinary incontinence can affect your social, work and personal relationships.

 

PRP | Priapus Shot (P Shot)

The name ‘Priapus’ came from Greek mythology, indicating a Greek and Roman god of gardens and male regenerative power.  The Priapus Shot indicates a specific procedure for treating a penis with blood-derived growth factors:  specifically platelet-rich plasma or PRP.

Multiple studies have demonstrated improvement in erectile function, size, and correction of Peyronie ’s disease with the use of PRP.  One of the growth factors found in PRP includes vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which provides an improvement in the health, circulation, and strength (density) of penile tissue.

When the Priapus Shot does what it should, using it on the penis will result in all of the followings:

 

  • Immediately larger, strengthen and straighten the penis

  • Increase size by design

 (can place more in a base or in the head or wherever makes for best result)

  • Increase circulation within the penis for a healthier organ

  • Increase sensation and pleasure

(helps correct the damage from diabetes)

  • Make other therapies work better

(if you still need Viagra or Cialis, then it will work better for you)

  • No allergic reactions

  • Minimal pain

The steps of the Priapus Shot includes:

  1. Numbing lidocaine cream or local anesthetic injection is administered to the penis.

  2. Blood is drawn from the arm and is put in a centrifuge.

  3. The platelets are mixed with a few drops of Calcium chloride to help platelets release growth factors

  4. This PRP solution is injected into the penis using a tiny needle and in a way that distributes the growth factors in a proper way.

 

The complete Priapus Shot protocol also includes the use of a penis pump, which has been demonstrated to improve erection as a part of a penile rehabilitation program. 

 

Priapus Shot does not intend to make any particular therapy obsolete but rather offer a protocol for enhancing an overall, synergistic approach to the health and function of the penis.

 

Overall, it has been shown that blood-driven growth factors (when prepared in a proper way using a kit approved by the FDA for the preparation of PRP) can improve erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, and postop. prostate surgery as part of a penile rehabilitation and successful treatment leads to better function, better relationships, and more pleasure in life.

Priapus Shot FAQ

> How does P Shot work?

 

The Priapus Shot procedure is a quick, usually painless, 40minute, non-surgical procedure.  The P Shot procedure begins with numbing the penis and then a simple blood draw.  Then, using a proprietary technique, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted from the blood and then injected into the shaft and into the head of the penis.  There is no recovery time and the results are almost immediate in some men.  Full results appear in 2-3 months.

 

 

> When can I consider having a Priapus Shot procedure?

 

If you suffer with decrease sensation and pleasure, inability to achieve firmness during relations, difficulty maintaining firmness until your partner is satisfied, decrease in size (often seen with normal aging), an angle that causes pain or inability to have relations (Peyronie’s disease) or family relations strained because of any of the previously mentioned problems.

 

 

> Who can get the P Shot?

 

Your doctor or nurse will help determine if this procedure could work for you and your family.  Men both on and off testosterone replacement, those with diabetes, young and old can often benefit from the P Shot.  The procedure could lead to lower doses of erectile meds but may not always allow their discontinuation.  Smokers may get less results and size improvements occur less reliably.

 

 

> What are the benefits of the Priapus Shot procedure?

 

      ▪    Non-surgical

      ▪    Drug-free

      ▪    Enjoy sexual relations on the day of a procedure

      ▪    Increased sensitivity

      ▪    Increased desire

      ▪    Larger girth and length

      ▪    Fast and relatively painless

      ▪    Better, healthier sex

      ▪    Improved relation and stronger family

 

 

> Does Priapus Shot benefit Peyronie’s disease?

 

Research showed that Priapus Shot protocol can often lead to dramatic improvement with a straighter and firmer erection for treating Peyronie’s disease.

The Priapus Shot procedure uses science shown by research to (1) decrease inflammation, (2) increase circulation & (3) remodel scar tissue.  Your provider can tailor make this protocol for you.

 

 

> Why do I need to use a penis pump after the procedure?

 

The complete Priapus Shot protocol includes the use of a penis pump, which as a stand-alone therapy, has been demonstrated to improve erection both as part of a penile rehabilitation program as well as an adjunct to other therapies.  The penis pump strategy, even without the PRP,  has been demonstrated to increase penis size by 2-3cm.  Adding PRP to the penis pump shows improved results according to data collected by urologists currently utilizing the Priapus Shot protocol.

 

 

> Does Priapus Shot work for everyone?

 

The results can vary from person to person and no procedure works for all people.
