For four years now, I have been working on issues of increasing penis size and improving erection quality. I recently had the chance to try some prescription nitroglycerin ointment. From my experience, I have found some answers as to what effects nitroglycerin ointment (nitroglycerin gel) has on penis enlargement and erection quality.
I found that Nitroglycerin ointment will not permanently increase the size of the erect penis. This prescription ointment is not FDA approved as a treatment for erectile dysfunction but did increase erectile function in my case. Nitroglycerin Ointment will increase the penis size in that you will go from flaccid to erect but it does not make the erection bigger than any other firm erection. Research is continuing in regards to the safe use and effectiveness of nitroglycerin gel as an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction.
In this article we will look into my experience with nitroglycerine ointment, research into nitroglycerin ointment as used for erectile dysfunction, nitroglycerin as compared to other erection quality treatments, the effectiveness of nitroglycerin ointment as part of a penis enlargement program, and what alternatives are out there for penis enlargement and erection quality.
My Experience With Nitroglycerin Ointment
First of all, I am not a doctor. Nitroglycerin ointment is a prescription medicine that should only be prescribed by your doctor or urologist. I have had experience using Nitroglycerin ointment that may be helpful for you but this is not a substitute for the advice and care of a physician. This section is just a basic overview of my experience using Nitroglycerin ointment.
My prescription for nitroglycerin ointment was for the brand Nitro-Bid Nitroglycerin Ointment USP, 2%. The prescribed amount was to apply no more than an amount equal to a grain of rice per day to the skin of the penis. I was careful not exceed the prescribed amount because I already have excellent erection quality and I did not want to cause a priapism situation.
I used this ointment every night for over a month. When I used the ointment, my penis would become engorged but not completely erect within 5-10 minutes. With minimal stimulation, I would develop a very firm erection. During the night while using the ointment, I would have frequent firm nocturnal erections.
I took measurements of my penis both before and after 30 days of use. I found that there was no difference in the size of my penis from the before and after. The only possible difference would be that the nitroglycerin ointment caused extremely firm erections that may be larger than a softer erection.
Research into Nitroglycerin Ointment
We all know that there is very little official research into anything for penis enlargement so there is no research into the effects of nitroglycerin ointment on penis size. However, there has been some research into the effectiveness of nitroglycerin ointment on erectile dysfunction.
Most research involves a low concentration nitroglycerin gel of 0.2%. This would be placed onto the head of the penis in a pea sized amount. Even in this low dosage, approximately 25% of men reported improved erection quality. This represented a statistically significant improvement rate over the control placebo group. Most men got this erection improvement within 10 minutes of applying the treatment.
Nitroglycerin works by:
1. It widens blood vessels helps blood flow.
2. It relaxes penile smooth muscle, which in turn compresses penile veins and impedes blood flow out of the penis, which causes rigidity.https://www.healthline.com/health/mens-health/where-to-buy-nitroglycerin-gel-for-ed#about
This treatment remains unapproved by the FDA and does carry some significant risks.
Like any med, the gels have their share of side effects. “Nitroglycerin medications can result in a sudden and serious loss of blood pressure,” says Adam B. Murphy, MD, a professor of urology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Men with heart disease or low-blood pressure shouldn’t use them. Other serious side effects include methemoglobinemia, which can lead to seizures, cyanosis, and heart arrythmias, as well as bleeding and dermatitis on the penis. And because nitroglycerin gels are applied topically, the side effects may be transferred to your partner, too.https://www.menshealth.com/health/a19546293/nitroglycerin-gel-for-erectile-dysfunction/

Nitroglycerin Ointment vs Other ED Treatments
If approved by the FDA, nitroglycerine ointment could be of great benefit as an ED treatment. First of all, it is effective in as little as five minutes so would allow for much more spontaneity than the oral ED medications which usually take at least a half hour to work. The benefits of being able to keep a tube by the bedside that would work in minutes would be immeasurable to men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
This medication is available as a generic which would have benefits. Nitroglycerin Ointment may be cheaper per dose than the oral erectile dysfunction medicines.
Nitroglycerin Ointment as Part of a Penis Enlargement Program
If nitroglycerin ointment is ever approved by the FDA, it could be an excellent addition to a penis enlargement program. While the use of this ointment does not cause the penis to enlarge, it could play an important role in conjunction with proven penis enlargement methods like penis traction devices. The long lasting and firm erections from this treatment would be an excellent way to cement the gains from such a program.
Alternatives for Erection Quality
Since nitroglycerin ointment has not been approved for treating erectile dysfunction, we have to look for other treatment methods. I have found that the most effective treatment for erectile dysfunction to be acoustic wave therapy. This treatment (also known as shock wave therapy) involves the use of acoustic waves to cause neovascularization inside the penis. This is the formation of new blood vessels to promote erectile function (source).
This type of treatment has been in wide use in other fields like sports medicine for a long time and is gaining traction in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. I have personally used acoustic wave therapy to treat my erectile dysfunction with great success. With the help of these treatments, I no longer have any need for any oral ED medicine or medication like nitroglycerine ointment.
TheMonsterSite has complete reviews of two major types of acoustic wave therapy for erectile dysfunction. The first type is the Gainswave system. Gainswave is a professionally administered type of acoustic wave therapy. It is very effective but is can be very costly. You can read the full review here.
The second type of acoustic wave therapy is the Phoenix device. This is an at home system that can save you a lot of money over the in office treatments. It is extremely effective and is the system that I currently use. You can read the full review here.
Alternatives for Penis Enlargement
While nitroglycerine ointment will not enlarge your penis, there are other alternatives out there. The most proven and effective way to enlarge the penis is through the use of traction devices. Penis traction devices are the enlargement method with the most scientific research behind them. They are considered by many to be the most effective or only effective method of penis enlargement.
The most important thing to remember about using traction devices to increase penis size is to find a quality device that can be worn safely and comfortably for hours at a time. You can read my complete review of penis traction devices including my personal results here.
Another major option is the surgical route such as suspensory ligament surgery. Keep in mind that you will still need to use an effective traction device in conjunction with the surgery. Other surgical and dermal filler options are available throughout the country. You can check our list of penis enlargement providers by states here.
Nitroglycerin ointments (gel) may someday play an important role in penis enlargement programs and erection quality. Unfortunately, there is not enough research at this time to get FDA approval for this type of treatment. There can be significant health risks from the use of this treatment and it is not recommended at this time.
