Priapism, The Never-Ending Erection | Causes, Symptoms & Treatments

The Never-ending Erection

Long lasting and strong erections are what most men are looking for and if the erection quality or duration decreases, because of what reason ever, men tend to reach out for help. Alongside prescription drugs like Viagra and co. there are tons of over the counter wonder supplements and pills which claim to improve erection in men.

In fact, many of these supplements do contain undeclared byproducts which are or resemble the ingredients in the prescription drugs and their overuse may cause serious complications.
 

Priapism 

One of the common and potentially dangerous complications associated with these supplements is priapism which is a prolonged, unwanted, painful and persistent erection which isn’t caused by sexual stimulation or arousal.
Mostly common in males between ages 5 and 10 and ages 20 and 50, priapism is a medical emergency and needs immediate medical attention with prompt treatment in order to prevent tissue damage that could result in the inability to get or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction).
