Penile injection for erectile dysfunction

Penile injection is another form of urethral medication. Instead of a pellet, it uses a tiny needle that injects the medication into the side of the penis.

  • Other considerations, such as:
    • Side effects, including priapism, hypotension, and scarring
    • Cost
    • Injection frequency and how it will affect how often you can have sexual intercourse
