Most men experiencing Erectile Dysfunction (ED) may be treated with penile injection therapy. You may see this also referred to as “intracavernosal injection therapy.” This treatment refers to an injection of a single or combination of medications that increases the blood flow to the penis (vasodilation).
The injection is placed into the side of the penis shaft by using a syringe with an extremely thin needle. The shot is done when a person wants to engage in sexual activity with the onset of the erection seen usually between 5-10 minutes and the duration of the erection ranging from 30 minutes to two hours.
There are several medications that are included in the shot. Various combinations may be custom blended to create the right dose for the degree of ED severity. Hence, there are "Bimix" injections that include two drugs as well as "Trimix" dosing with three medications and even "QuadMix" mixtures available as well.
Broward Urology Center works with several national and local compound pharmacies that create these custom medication blends for our patients at competitive prices and convenient home delivery to ensure discreteness and privacy. These medications have been used for many years by urologists and are still readily available by prescription from numerous compounding pharmacies. There is no need to join an expensive "Men’s Club" or have a "package deal" at a clinic posing to be urologists who treat ED.
We recommend doing the injection close to the base of the penis shaft most of the time. The injection must be done at about the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock locations (see diagram). Do NOT inject directly at the top of the penis (12 o’clock) because you may cause injury to the nerves or veins that are located there. Also do NOT inject on the bottom of the penis (6 o’clock) as this may lead to some bleeding form the urethra (pee tube).
Injections are rotated within that area and the side of the injection is alternated with each injection. Please avoid injecting the same spot each and every time as this may increase the chances of scarring and penile curvature.
