What Is ED Injection Therapy?

Q:
What is ED injection therapy

A:
Intracavernous injection therapy is the process whereby a small amount of a chemical is injected directly into the corpora cavernosa. These chemicals are smooth muscle relaxants and thus help increase blood flow into the penis.

The advantage of injection therapy is that it does not depend on oral absorption, as pills do, and does not depend on absorption through the tissues, as with MUSE. The disadvantage is that it requires a small injection.

Most men are anxious when they initially start with injection therapy but find that the procedure itself is usually not that uncomfortable. In most patients who do not respond to first-line, oral therapy or who are not candidates for oral therapy, injection therapy provides satisfactory erections.
