Rock hard, hang a towel results are what I seek!!!
Had a downer experience today. Used the most I have used so far, 0.3ml, and had the worst results. Had much better results at 0.2ml.
However, I think I hit a vein because I noticed redness and some temporary swelling of a blood vessel, so maybe that screwed things up some.
Have had difficulty hitting the right spot a couple of times now....not getting into the cavernous area properly...can tell because there is resistance when I push the plunger to inject the medication. Both times that happened my erection was less than the times when the plunger depressed easiy....some of the meds are probably not reaching the target area when the resistance is encountered.
Might try a 1/2 inch needle next time. The autoinjector does not insert the needles all the way...maybe 1/8 or 1/16 inch less than the actual needle length, so that might also be contributing to my inconsistent results.
I think I will try 1/2 inch needle but use a 1/4 inch spacer. Result should be close to same as if I injected 5/16 manually.
