I’m not joking I just did this completely on a whim. Afterward I thought to myself, I might have a problem with self experimentation.
I was reading about Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for penis enhancement, and I found the following paragraph:
“PRP acts on cells to increase their numbers (mitogenesis) and stimulate vascular ingrowth (angiogenesis) and thus promote healing (16
). This is because platelets do not only have haemostatic properties, but they also contain an abundance of growth factors (GFs) and cytokines that can affect inflammation, angiogenesis, and cell proliferation (17
). These GFs and cytokines are released upon platelet activation—the most important GFs include vascular endothelial GF (VEGF), fibroblast GF (FGF), platelet-derived GF (PDGF), epidermal GF (EGF), hepatocyte GF (HGF), transforming GF beta-1 and beta-2 (TGF-b1/2), insulin-like GF (IGF−1, IGF-2), interleukin 8 and matrix metalloproteinases 2,9 (16
). Studies postulate that PRP injections may modify key pathophysiologic mechanisms leading to ED through anti- inflammatory, reparative, neuroprotective and neurotrophic effects (23
So, being the numbskull I am, I thought to myself, if GF is the reason PRP works, well I have some HGH leftover in my fridge right now, still in powder form. So I added 1 mL bac water to the 10 IU vial and then I pulled 20 units on my insulin syringe (0.2 mL, 2 IU HGH).
Based on later descriptions in paper that PRP is injected into both sides of the penis (called the corpora cavernosa) I split the dose in two, 1 IU on the right and 1 IU on the left.
The syringe felt very strange going in. Not like pinning on the flab of fat on the side of your belly. It almost hurt less than, to tell you the truth, but I did feel something like fibrous tissue after passing deeper than surface level. I’m not sure whether I made to to the corpora cavenosa entirely, but I am too afraid to try any deeper than the insulin syringe would allow.
About 15 minute have passed now. I feel some slight discomfort in my penis, similar to how your arm might feel if a buddy socked you just a little bit too hard. It might leave a bruise, but it isn’t unbearable.
Lately, I have felt that my erections just haven’t been what they were a few years ago. I don’t want to go into too much detail, and I don’t think I will measure anything, but I will monitor the subjective effects and update this post with how I feel in the next days.
Should I repeat the inject? Daily? EOD? I’m open to input, also open to being told I’m insane and shouldn’t be doing such a risky thing.
