My husband (63) has perscription induced ED AND NEEDS HELP GETTING HARD ENOUGH FOR PENETRATION. He has pills - they take too long to work. He has a pump, but cock rings to maintain the erection must be removed within 30 minutes - not long enough for us. He is considering the injections, but the thought of the potential pain kinda makes him and I wince. Are the shots really painfull ?? What can you tell us about the suppositories placed in the ureatha? My husband says that sounds better than needles to him - how long does it last? Are they painful? Thanks for any advice you may have for us.

The injection is virtually painless. If rating from 1-10 I rate it less than one half of one.It works very well ( 90% ) and last for about two hours. There is some penile pain with it but is very minimal. I love it . it works very well for me. I was skeptical of the injections at first but it`s nothing if you do it right. Your Dr will instruct you whats best for you

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Everyone responds differently to different type of treatments. He will need to discuss with his doctor, so he can help him in choosing the right treatment for him.
