In this article, you’ll learn and discover about treatment for impotence called Medicated urethral system for erection (MUSE®)
What is a medicated urethral system for erection (MUSE®)?
This is an erectile dysfunction treatment that was invented by the Vivus company in California in 1997, which consists of using a specially designed plunger to insert a tiny pellet directly into the tube through which both urine and sperm pass, the urethra.
This pellet is loaded with alprostadil. This drug is used in impotence injections.
How does a medicated urethral system for erection (MUSE®) work?
The drug works from the inside to dilate the blood capillaries of the penis. An erection will begin within 5 to 15 minutes and can last for up to 60 minutes.
Precautions to consider
- Because you are using the same pharmaceutical chemical that you would when injecting into your penis, the risks are very similar. People who suffer from penile deformities, sickle cell anemia, or leukemia should not consider using MUSE.
- Also, the drug is inserted into the urethra, it is essential that any man who indulges in intercourse with a woman after using the treatment makes sure they wear a condom.
- It is recommended that anyone using this particular impotence treatment does not consider driving a car for a least one hour afterward using the treatment.
- This process involves pharmaceutical drugs. It is not be viewed as a natural treatment for impotence. In addition, this is another reason why you may want to postpone trying this treatment.
Success Rate for the medicated urethral system for erection (MUSE®)
This form of treatment has only a success rate of 30% to 60% of cases. Those numbers do not compare particularly favorably with many other impotence treatments that were mentioned in previous articles that I posted in this series.
The impotence vacuum pump method is still the most popular of the methods I mentioned. It has some disadvantages, however, it does not require anything surgery or pharmaceutical drugs.
