If the pills don’t work, another very effective treatment is penile injection therapy. This involves injecting the erection chamber of the penis with the drug alprostadil five to 10 minutes before sexual activity. The medication helps its user achieve an erection for about 30 minutes. It may seem like a severe option but many men rave about this therapy. Too many, as it turns out. “That type of treatment is overused because there are men who don’t have erectile dysfunction but want to have a prolonged erection or sex for a long period of time,” says Sharlip. Using this therapy unnecessarily can put a man at risk for prolonged erection, which can permanently damage his penis. This treatment should be used only for significant ED and under the supervision of a physician.
