Penis Injections for Erectile Dysfunction

This video is very informative, but there is a disturbing message, about one of the leading new causes of Peyronie's Disease.
Injections for erectile dysfunction

I have heard a lot of advertisements about the treatment of erectile dysfunction on the radio recently.  This treatment method involves injection of a drug,  Alprostadil. One of the warnings is; do not receive injections if you have abnormal curvature or genetic penis defects. 

Alprostadil injections are self administered and effective in giving erections in over 80% of men.  Self administering an injection though, could be considered risky.  Men are given instructions by their doctor or nurse on how to inject themselves.  There is also a suppository form of the drug that is less effective, but also a drastically reduces risk of damage to the penis.

The first injection should be administered by the doctor in his office.  The following injections will be done by the patient in his home.  The problem I see with this method, is a man has to inject himself every time he is going to have intercourse.  The chances for injury and internal damage could be cumulative, and increase over time.

Injection therapy for erectile dysfunction is resorted to after oral treatment has failed, (Sildenafil, Viagra, Cialis, Levitra) or, due to preexisting medical conditions, a patient cannot take PDE5 inhibitor meds.

  1. I have been using Viagra now for a couple of months.

    I have seen on the facebook community where several men have switched from Viagra to either Cialis or Levitra. I believe most if not all have switched due to side effects of the Viagra such as headaches.

    I would like to hear from those that have tried more then one of the three if there was any change in the erectile effect.
