Step by Step on How to Do Self Intra Cavernous Injection

Penile Injection Therapy Diagrams

1. Hold the medication bottle so that your fingers do not touch the rubber stopper through which the needle is inserted. Check expiration date of medication.
2. Using a circular motion, wipe off the top of the vial with an alcohol swab.
3. Remove the needle cover. Do not allow the needle to touch anything prior to drawing the medication or before injecting the medication.
4. Draw an amount of air equal to the amount of medication to be injected into the syringe. Push the needle through the center of the stopper. Push the air into the bottle.
5. Turn the bottle and syringe upside down. Slowly draw the medication into the syringe. Tap the syringe gentle to remove the bubbles.
6. Move the plunger in and out several times while tapping the syringe, thus removing all air bubbles.
7. Gently remove the needle from the vial and replace the cap. Remove the drawing needle and replace with the 30g injecting needle. Loosen the protective cap and place the filled syringe within easy reach prior to injection.
8. Use injection site as illustrated. This area is designated on the drawing with crosshatch marks.
9. Locate the area of injection. Wipe off with an alcohol swab. Grasp the head of the penis, not the skin. Position the penis along your inner thigh. Maintain traction on the head after cleaning the side of the penis.
10. Grasp the syringe between the thumb and middle finger like a pen. Place the needle on the site of injection at a 90° angle. Push the needle in, gently but firmly, all the way to the brown hub.
11. Shift your finger so that your index finger or your thumb can push in the plunger. Push the medication in slowly – over 8 to 10 seconds.
12. Remove the needle. Apply pressure with your index finger on the injection site and your thumb on the opposite side of the penis. Apply pressure for two minutes

The worst possible scenario for penile injection is Priapism. Priapism is a persistent, usually painful, erection that lasts for more than four hours and occurs without sexual stimulation. The condition develops when blood in the penis becomes trapped and unable to drain. If the condition is not treated immediately, it can lead to scarring and permanent erectile dysfunction.
