WHAT IS ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION & WHAT CAUSES IT?
Having a satisfactory sex life is a key component to a healthy, long lasting relationship. However, based on several studies by the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, erectile dysfunction has been found to affect 52% of men, and the number increases significantly with the increase of age group. Among the 52%, 40% are affected at the age of 40 and at the age of 70, 70% men experience total erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is the medical condition where the penis fails to have an erection even when you’re sexually aroused. As a result, most partners with ED patients would feel disappointed and left sexually frustrated due to the inability to perform in the bedroom. Age is a big factor, a lead cause, if you would say in having erectile dysfunction. As erectile dysfunction is a product of combination of poor physical and mental health, aging process contributes to it by weaken the body from day to day.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS FOR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
To help mending the situation, men usually rely to pills and other alternatives such as pumps and fillers. Besides that, there is also a popular FDA-approved medication that is safe and effective that is Caverject. Caverject is a brand of alprostadil, which is a solution to help widen the blood vessels and improve vascular flow into the penile shaft. As a result, you’ll be able to experience a full-on erection for a good 1 hour without having to compromise your safety and health.
Caverject differs from other treatments in its approach (by injection) and the immediate effect of just 5-10 minutes after the injection.
HOW TO USE CAVERJECT?
Caverject can be used by injecting the solution to the blood-filled area of the penis. During your consultation session with one of our expert doctor, you will be given an exact dose of Caverject needed based on your condition. The dose is advised to be increased over time until you have found the most appropriate dose for your erection.
A single vial of Caverject should be used for only 1 dose. 1 dose would suffice for a good 1 hour of satisfying sexual experience. Should the erection lasts longer than 2 hours, you may reduce the dose slowly as suggested by the doctor. However, you are recommended to get doctor’s help should the erection last longer than 3 hours and above.
WHAT I SHOULDN’T DO DURING/AFTER THE TREATMENT?
First of all, it is highly advisable to NOT inject the Caverject during an already aroused erection.
However, please note than you are not encouraged to go for this treatment if you have a penile implant or possess any deformations on the penis such as angulation, fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease. It is also important to remember that a patient who has any condition that would possibly increase the risk of priapism would not be suitable for this treatment.
An instruction kit will be provided in the package to help you with any necessary information with the treatment including how to mix the medication and how to inject it properly. Please not that once the solution is mixed, it must be injected immediately. Should there are any remaining solution, it must be disposed accordingly. Besides that, any unused vials should be stored between 2°C and 30°C without freezing.
Kindly visit our doctor every 3 months after your first visit so we may examine if the medication works properly for you.
