Injections techniques

User
Posted 07 Apr 2019 at 22:16

My husband has suffered from ED-problems since surgery last October.

Cialis did'nt work, and he has now tried injections a couple of times. The result is "some" change of size, far from a full erection. There is a change, so obviously he is not missing the right area completely.
The interesting thing is that he got a full erection when the consultant set the first injection - a couple of months ago.

Could this be due to wrong technique?  Or could his ability somehow have been reduced since then.

The product is Androskat (Papaverine and phentolamin).

It will work in the area where the injection has delivered the compound - if injected at the wrong angle then the compound does not reach the corpora cavernosa (the spongy tissue that engorges with blood).

He shouldn’t lie down for 15 mins after injecting - standing or walking is better for blood flow.

NICE guideline is a maximum of 4 injections per month or 4 Viagra or 4 muse pellets etc. Basically, the NHS thinks you should be limited to sex once per week.

Some GPs and ED nurses are a bit more generous - John managed to get agreement for 4 injections plus 4 Viagra, and then when the injections stopped working, he was allowed 4 viagra + 4 levitra each month (but don’t anyone tell the CCG)

If it worked for the consultant and the dose is the same it sounds like a technique issue..

Interesting - which country are you in as Androsjat isn't approved in many nations?

Technique is everything with the injectables - getting the needle in at just slightly the wrong angle will prevent it from working properly. Other possibilities are storing it at the wrong temperature or not standing up for long enough after injecting. Walking around can help as well.

I am in one of the Scandinavian countries - and the product is not officially "being marketing", but is allowed by the consultants application. The clinique has very good experience with it.

I thought it was strange that it worked just a little, I would have expected either full effect or not at all - since it worked so well at the consultant's office.

This should be stored in room temperature - so the storage should not have anything to do with it.

It should give effect already after 10 minutes. Do you mean that he should not lie down in that period?

I’ve used loads of injectables , some to poor effect and some to amazing effect. It’s hard to explain on a forum and I’m not good at links. I’ve used Invicorp25 to great success. I suggest you google the patient leaflet for this product which has a great injection technique explanation. It made no difference to me whether stood or not. Just the thought of some jiggy was enough to get the blood pumping. Do please try adding a jelly cock ring also. It can have a remarkable effect. Good luck

Like Chris, I use Invicorp 25.  Have had no problems with it.  Some men in the UK have problems getting it.  I'm lucky in that I get it on the NHS.  It's manufactured by a Swedish company, Evolan Pharma AB, so if the product you're using proves to be problematic in the long term, this might be worth considering.

I use caverject dual chamber ....

My GP prescribes 4 a month... but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t realise there are 2 injections per box.. 

So in effect I get 8 injections per month .... I hope he’s not reading this!  😄
