Since a lot of ED treatment drugs on the market, like Viagra, have some serious marketing money behind them, people are inclined to believe that pills are a simple, quick fix for ED. It’s one of the biggest misconceptions out there.
The truth is, independent studies show that these drugs tend to work only about 50-60% of the time. If it does work, it often stops working after a while since the body often builds up a resistance to its effectiveness.
And that effectiveness is a pretty relative term here. Even when the pills do work, they don’t always work as well as you’d like. They might slightly improve your erection—but that erection isn’t going to be enough for real penetration.
Many people expect Viagra or one of these drugs to be a quick fix but in reality, it’s not always that easy. Sometimes a man’s body just doesn’t respond to the meds. Other times, it doesn’t actually treat the real problem. Viagra, for example, doesn’t affect the lack of sexual desire or interest (if that’s the issue, testosterone might be the problem), which can often mask itself as a symptom of ED.
Men are often surprised to find that they actually prefer the alternatives to Viagra.
Some might cringe at the thought of injecting their penis with a medicine, but many men find this painless and extremely effective. For example, Trimix is administered via injection about 15 minutes before you have sex and works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the penis and opening the blood vessels to cause an erection.
The success rate on these injections is extremely high, reaching almost 90%.
If this sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. You’ll perform this a few times under supervision of a nurse or doctor a few times before you’re on your own so by the time you’re ready for action, you’ll be confident and fully prepared.
If giving yourself an injection sounds almost as bad as ED itself, TriMix also has a gel that is an excellent alternative to the injection. It works almost instantly and lasts for up to an hour. The only real downside to the gel is that the success rate is much lower than the injection.
