What You Need to Know About Penile Injections
Penile injections are a virtually painless and highly successful treatment for ED.
At first, the thought of plunging a needle into your penis might seem like an automatic nonstarter. However, once you overcome this initial squeamishness you will realize that penile injections can provide a highly successful—and virtually painless—treatment for erectile dysfunction. If you are among the roughly 30 million American men dealing with some degree of ED, don’t hesitate to reach out to Renew Man™ to learn about your treatment options.
Who Should Consider Penile Injections?
Penile injections are recommended for the man who has already tried more natural methods of treating ED, such as testosterone replacement therapy, but still struggles with the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Often, testosterone replacement therapy and penile injections are used together as a one-two punch to combat both low sex drive and erectile problems. Boosting testosterone helps restore sexual desire, and penile injections provide the ability to act on that desire.
How Do Penile Injections Work?
Penile injections deliver medication directly into the side of the penis, dilating the arteries and allowing blood to flow in and create an erection. Several different types of medications are in common use today. These medications act on the muscle cells in the arterial walls in slightly different ways but the end result is the same—a firm erection within 10 to 20 minutes that may last anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Penile injections are considered very safe, and some medications have been in use since the 1980s with very good results. The needle used to inject the medication is very fine and most men report being surprised by how painless the injection feels. There is very little risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site because the needle is so small. Some medications may carry a small risk of rare side effects such as dizziness and headache. An overdose of the medication could cause priapism.
How Often Can I Have Sex?
Penile injections can be used 10 times per month or as recommended by your doctor.
Will I Have an Orgasm?
Penile injections do not improve the ability to have an orgasm, but only the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. If you have issues with orgasm you would need specific treatment to address this symptom.
Will Penile Injections Work for Me?
In clinical trials, 80 percent of men were able to achieve firm erections using penile injections. This ED treatment works for a broad range of men, and it is highly likely that penile injections will work for you if our Renew Man™ doctors approve you for this treatment.
