There are different opinions on this, but I'd give injections a try.
They aren't as bad as they sound.
I used them for over 4 years without side effects until they too stopped working.

I too was diagnosed with severe venous leakage in my late 20's. The doctor at the time prescribed injections due to Viagra was not approved. I have used it all, including pumps, injections, and the last, GainsWave therapy. The thought of an implant at such a young age and going back every approximately 10 years is a downside. However, now that I have an implant, I certainly do not regret it. With pills and injections, there is that waiting period "hoping" they will work. And even if it does work, the mood by then has tremendously diminished! Implants are not natural by no means, but the mental aspects, cost over the long run, and confidence you gain is priceless, at least for me.

One thing I would get after being unable to preform is "it's ok"! But after my implant and really opening up with my partner, it was not ok. She questioned my attraction to her, interest, etc. Implant was the best answer for me, and looking hindsight, doing it in my 20's would not be a deterrent. As so many others have said, my only regret is I didn't do it sooner. This is just my take, an ED sufferer for over 30 years!

Yep, women put a lot of stock in their partner's demonstrations of affection and desire (the prime one being an erection!), but almost universally deny it. (Probably in an effort to spare their lover's feelings, is my guess.) But in addition to making her feel like you are not attracted to her, many women I have known get insecure and feel as if they are undesirable, especially as a relationship gets into its middle years.

I think that I am not going to try the injections. I am a young guy and I cannot be planning my sexual relationships every time, I need spontaneity. However, I appreciate your suggestions. Lost sheep, I think I should make a decision as soon as possible in order not to experiment too much atrophy. I have not considered the vaccum device since I do not know if it would help me but I am going to ask doctor Rosello about the need of using it (to see if he recommends it to me before the procedure) during my appointment with him on Saturday. I am going to tell him about my situation and see what he suggests but I have almost decided getting the implant, it is a matter of time and I don't think that postponing this situation will be benefitial for me (because in addition to the negative psychological consequences of not solving the problem now, the likeliness of suffering atrophy scares me).
