Penile Injection TherapyMiami, FL
Penile injections therapy involves injecting medicine into the penis. We often use this treatment to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Patients who struggle with ED are actually struggling with health issues that can be due to both physical and mental conditions.
Penile Injection Therapy
The muscle that causes a patient to have an erection may actually sustain damage when the individual does not use it for long periods of time. This is why many men turn to penile injection therapy. This type of therapy is quick, effective and is an action one manually takes before sex. This leads many to wonder about the exact details of this procedure and how it works.
A Different Form Of Medication
Patients may take Trimix, Bimix, or Papaverine in a penile injection. All 3 medications open the blood vessels in the penis and relax the muscle that causes erections. These medications essentially break down the walls that are causing the patient to have ED. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) can also work in an injection form.
If the luteinizing hormone (LH) is not functioning properly, it will not produce enough testosterone and cause other issues in the man’s body. These low levels can cause ED and require us to prescribe HCG, a hormone that mimics LH in the body. HCG will stimulate testosterone production and help a patient get an erection again without issue. HCG can also help the testes get back to their normal size and function.
Fortunately, penile injection therapy is a treatment that one can administer at home, when necessary. We will need to teach the patient how to administer the injection to avoid injury or other health risks. Penile injections are typically on the side and at the base of the penis. We do not recommend injections more than once within a 24 hour period.
Upon starting injections, the patient will need to closely monitor his results and keep a lookout for side effects. If the initial medication a patient takes is not effective, then we may recommend a different option. Patients will also want to take extra caution if they are on blood thinners. Potentially dangerous side effects the patient needs to look out for include:
Erectile Dysfunction Facts You Need To Know
The American Association of Retired Persons, AARP, states that one-third of men between the ages of 50 and 64 suffer from erectile dysfunction, ED. This condition can severely affect a man’s self-esteem and overall sexual wellness. ED occurs when a man cannot achieve or sustain an erection, preventing any sexual activities. Impotence is another form of dysfunction that can result from other various factors.
The most important thing is seeing a doctor who can determine the root cause and recommend proper treatment. There are multiple root causes of ED that require treatments to vary and accommodate specific issues. Lifestyle choices and mental health can all lead to ED. While oral medications are one option, they may not work for all men. Thus, alternative treatments like penile injection can be very effective.
We Take The Time To Listen To You
With a variety of treatment options for ED, including penile injection therapy, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. In many cases, what commonly works for other men may not be as effective or beneficial for the patient. Thus, we will take the time to truly understand the patient’s needs and determine the most effective form of treatment.
We will begin by conducting an examination of your current condition, medical history, lifestyle habits and any other pertinent information that we need to know. We will then go over available options and determine the option that will work best for the patient. We will also review the potential side effects and practices the patient needs to take to prevent injury or other health risks.
By reviewing the necessary instructions, we can help ensure the patient receives the effective treatment in a safe manner. It is important to note that there are no stupid questions. We encourage the patient to be open with us about his issues with impotence so we can find an effective treatment.
