A lot of people who are not medically inclined believe that pills are the most effective erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment as seen on TV ads. Although they are effective in helping men overcome erection problems, majority who tried intracavernous pharmacotherapy (ICP) prefer to use it than ED pills. Since early 1980’s, ICP treatment has helped men achieve lasting and rigid erections and is still regarded as one of the most successful, scientifically-proven ways to help men with ED.
A comparison of intracavernous pharmacotherapy versus ED pills:
Overall Effectiveness for Erectile Dysfunction
According to studies provided by the leading manufacturer of ED pills’ website, 82% of men who use pills report erection improvements and achieve solid results. However, a study conducted by the World Journal of Urology found that intracavernous pharmacotherapy injections were even more effective ED treatment. After an ICP injection, “… erections were achieved in 97.2% of patients with neurogenic [nerve] impotence, 81.6% of those with vascular impotence [blood flow] and 100% of patients with psychogenic [psychological erectile dysfunction] and hormonal impotence.” In addition, a lot who suffer from vascular impotence are unable to take ED pills due to its counteracting effects with cardiac medications.
Almost All Men Can Use ICP
Intracavernous pharmacotherapy is locally applied and doesn’t interfere with any medications. Thus, ICP is proven best way for all men with sexual problems. Primarily, erectile dysfunction is caused by poor blood flow, hypertension and nerve or artery damage due to diabetes. A lot of men who have cardiovascular problems are on nitrate medication for chest pain that cannot be taken in conjunction with ED pills. The International Journal of Impotence Research found that ICP’s total success rate was 94.3% in helping men with cardiovascular diseases who couldn’t use oral medications.
It’s Fast Acting than any other ED treatment
More often than not, people don’t plan ahead before they have sex. Men with erectile dysfunction who take pills will have to wait 30 plus minutes for them to achieve an erection. On the other hand, those who are using intracavernous pharmacotherapy can have sex in as fast as five minutes. Also, men who use ICP don’t require any sexual stimulation to achieve an erection.
ED pills can cause poor color perception, headaches, facial flushing, priapism (an erection lasting over four hours) and even heart attacks. Unlike other ed treatment, intracavernous pharmacotherapy has relatively fewer side effects, such as priapism and potential bruising at the injection site. Although, a board certified physician in Boston Medical Group will provide trainings on the proper use of ICP injection to lessen these problems.
Long-Term Positive Effects
In a study by the Institute of Urology in the University of Tel Aviv, Israel in which men who previously could not achieve an erection without ICP used this ed treatment for three years. Some reported to have spontaneous erections again. After the study, 10.6% of men could have sex without an injection while 13.4% oftentimes perform without it.
