Sorry it didn't work the first time. I did mention it was a matter of trial and error, didn't I. I also said that you could deliberately start low and work up. Don't be discouraged, the dose you used is just a starting point. I really think you need to keep one technique going until you reach success. Jumping from cold to plumping then back to cold confuses the issue and you end up not sure of just exactly what you did, besides there's always a chance of random failure with either process. Stick with one or the other until you know what works or don't. Don't be so quick to change and don't be disappointed if it takes a few times to 'dial' it in. One thing, personally, I think the plump and prick method gives you less chance of fiberous issues and overall penile health of being injected. With it, you get a very good indicator that the needle and the drug is in the right place. That, more than any cost savings, should be worth the extra prep time that you mention. sorry you have had a first time failure, don't give up.
