Penile Implant vs Medication: Making The Right Call

When a man begins to grapple with the possibility of losing the ability to achieve an erection, he can get desperate. Sure, pills seem like a good option, but he may opt for a more extreme measure such as a penile implant. Invasive surgery is required, but it allows the wearer the ability to achieve an erection whenever they want. However, a penile implant should be considered a last ditch solution to any erection health problem.

When considering a penile implant, it is advised that you first speak with a doctor about whether or not the implant is right for you. While it can be tempting to sidestep the hassle of taking medication, penile implants are only recommended for men who have no other options. A penile implant is usually used when there is a clear medical cause for the erection problems and when the problem is unlikely to resolve or improve naturally or with other medical treatments

When considering a penile implant, keep these facts in mind:

-Surgery for the procedure can be very expensive

-The implant is only good for 10 years. When it’s time is up, you’ll have to do it all over again.

-Penile implants can encounter mechanical difficulties, which will require surgery to repair

If you have a serious medical problem causing erectile issues and you’ve run out of options, look into a penile implant. Otherwise, it would be advisable to stick to medication.
