What is Penile Injection Therapy?

Some men are unable or choose not to address their erectile dysfunction with oral medication. Intracavernous injections, often referred to as tri-mix injections, offer an easy and popular solution for the condition. Intracavernous injections have been used as a treatment for ED since the 1980s and provide immediate results with a sterling 95% rate of effectiveness in treating ED.

An intracavernous injection delivers a combination of medication directly into your penis. You perform the injection yourself, usually about 10-15 minutes before intercourse, and you can learn to administer these injections in as little as one office visit.

While many men don't like the thought of injections directly into the penis, the dependable results far outweigh the momentary discomfort of the injection. Furthermore, the syringe is one of the smallest used in medicine today. Most men compare the sensation of the injection to that of a mosquito bite.

FAQs About Penile Injection Therapy

Penile injections consist of a combination of medications that work together to relax smooth muscle and open the blood vessels in the penis. The tissue that causes you to gain an erection is a muscle, and delivering this medication directly into the muscle can be an effective treatment for even the most severe cases of erectile dysfunction.

The injection must be administered to a certain location on the penile shaft to be effective and to avoid damaging the nerves and blood vessels. Your provider at LaSara Medical Group will teach you exactly how to administer these injections to maximize their effectiveness and avoid any damage to the surrounding tissue.

You may also be asked to report on the injections and their effectiveness to your doctor, so they can help adjust your dosage to the perfect amount. Do not adjust your dosage without consulting your doctor, and never mix intracavernous injections with oral erectile dysfunction medication.

When performed correctly, there are few, if any, side effects to intracavernous injections. While there were once concerns that repeated injections could cause liver toxicity, retrospective studies have shown these concerns to be unfounded. Scar tissue buildup was also once a concern, as was priapism, or unwanted, long-term erections, but these issues can also be avoided by using the correct injection procedure you learn from your provider at LaSara Medical Group.
