The world of erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment isn’t just about popping pills anymore. In this blog, Charleston Men’s Clinic will discuss the ED treatments we offer, so you have a better idea of your treatment options.

Traditional ED Medications

Traditional medications are the tried and true solution for erectile dysfunction. phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, also known as PDEIs, make it much easier to get an erection by dilating the arteries in the penis. You’ve probably heard of the “big three” oral ED medications: Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra.


It’s important to note that oral ED medications do not cause erections—they only make it much easier to get an erection. It still takes sexual stimulation from the brain for an erection to occur. Fortunately, PDEIs are a highly effective (if not slightly inconvenient) method to achieve stronger, firmer erections.

Priapus Shot®

Most men have never heard of the Priapus Shot—and to be fair, the words “shot” and “penis” in the same sentence will send most men running for the hills. But rest assured—because of the application of a local anesthetic, the Priapus Shot is completely painless can can improve your erectile function by up to 90 percent!


A Priapus Shot essentially injects your own blood into the parts of your penis that are responsible for strong erections and sexual arousal, giving you stronger, firmer erections and enhanced sexual sensitivity and arousal. The effects of the treatment often last up to 18 months, and in some cases, can even be permanent. Physicians at Charleston Men’s Clinic can help you find the right Priapus Shot treatment plan for you, so you can have a healthy and fruitful sex life.

GAINSWave™ Therapy

GAINSWave Therapy has been popular in Europe for over a decade, and it has finally made its way to the states—and for good reason. GAINSWave is a drug-free, surgery-free, pain-free, side effect-free therapy that uses acoustic pulses to improve the quality of erections as well as sexual stamina and sensitivity.


This therapy is formally known as low intensity, high frequency extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), which sends acoustic waves into penile tissues and breaks up micro-plaque that prevents quality erections from occurring. This instantly improves blood flow to the penis, leading to stronger and firmer erections—and it can even increase the overall size of the penis in some cases.


According to medical surveys, 80 percent of men with ED who received GAINSWave treatments saw full reversal of their ED condition and stopped taking ED drugs entirely, and 90 percent of men who received treatment experienced positive results and improved sexual performance.


The best part? The effects of GAINSWave last two to three years, and only cost around $500 dollars per treatment—a small price to pay when compared with two to three years of purchasing ED medication. Plus, there have been no adverse side effects reported from GAINSwave treatments!
