29 Male, took Accutane at age 15, have had mild-moderate ED ever since along with lowered sexual desire. ED characterized by difficulty maintaining erection and glans never fills up like it used to. Reduced spontaneous erections.
Has anyone had success with Shockwave therapy?
I just saw Dr. Irwin Goldstein at San Diego Sexual Medicine, and I think he is a good guy and he has a lot of knowledge about finasteride and accutane sexual effects. He recommended I take Vyleesi and Addyi, as well as topical DHT to the penis (if I am able to get my hands on any). He also recommended shockwave therapy and platelet-rich plasma was also on the table, as he said I have a lot of scarring obstructing the function of the smooth muscle of my penis.
I completed 5 treatments of shockwave about 3 days ago and I haven’t seen any effect so far. I know it can take the tissues time to heal.
I also just bought “The Phoenix” shockwave device. We’ll see if it has any effect when it comes.
