Penile Injection Therapy

Penile Injection Therapy is regarded as the most effective method for men with erectile dysfunction to obtain an erection. This injection therapy has been in practice for a long time, for more than 30 years. In this technique, the medicine will be injected directly into the side of the penis, and an erection occurs with the help of the medicine that dilates the blood flow to the penis, thus helping you achieve an erection. It is recommended to be used 5-15 minutes before you want the erection to occur. Moreover, the erection lasts 30 minutes to an hour or until orgasm is achieved.

The first injection in Penile Injection Therapy is usually given by the doctor and is usually used for both diagnosis and medication to determine the medicine required for each patient. In other words, the drug dose for each individual required for the erectile response is unique and will be recommended after gathering the insights from the first injection. Most patients find that over time, they gradually become accustomed to the sensation of tiny needles.

Penile Injection Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction

Penis injection therapy or Penile Injection Therapy is a treatment option for erectile dysfunction (ED). This treatment has been used in male patients with ED for more than 25 years and has been approved by the FDA.

Penis injection therapy is an excellent choice considering the following factors:

  • Lack of improvement with oral medications
  • Significant side effects of oral medications
  • Contraindicated oral medications, such as nitroglycerin products for the heart.

In our practice, more than 80% of men with ED have achieved gratifying results through this treatment. The treatment plan could also require trial injections in some cases. In this treatment, the medicine will be directly injected onto the side of the penis, which is painless. The further treatments will be based on the results received during this first injection of the medicine.

Another method that can administer locally is via suppositories or intraurethral agents, which will dissolve and dilate the blood vessels in the penis.

For many people, a physical examination and answering questions (medical history) are everything a doctor needs to diagnose erectile dysfunction and recommend treatment. If you have a chronic disease, or your doctor suspects that an underlying disease may be involved, you may need further examination or consultation with an andrology specialist.

How penile injection therapy works the best for you?

All self-injections should be performed in a sitting or lying position and in a sterile manner. You will be given all information about the technique. It is natural to be a little worried at first, but becoming familiar with the technology will become easier. Only when you have satisfactorily demonstrated that you can safely draw and inject the correct dose of medicine will you be provided with the necessary medicines, syringes, and needles for using the medication at home. You may need 2 to 6 visits to reach this stage.
