Patient Comments: Penile Implants - Intercourse

Do you find sex as satisfying with the penile implant? Do you experience any problems?

I had an AMS penile implant put in 4 weeks ago and I still have swelling. When I went to see my doctor he said the implant was inflated and that was the problem and that he will see me in 12 weeks.

I had an AMS (American Medical Systems) penile implant inserted 2 months ago. Holy Moly! This thing is great. My wife and I have never had sex like this. We can go on for hours, only taking a short break to rehydrate. Yeah, there was some pain the first few days but it healed well, and if I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat! I am so glad I had it done. So is my wife.

I had an AMS 700 implant on August 4, 2015. I had much pain, and then a discharge. I went to the emergency room, doctor and urologist and 6 days later I had another major discharge and much pain. I attempted to contact my doctor and urologist, and AMS America, it is 11 weeks and I am still waiting. I went for treatment in Berlin, Germany. I was immediately sent to surgery to have the AMS device removed, and I was in the hospital 14 days. I also had a second surgery 2 days after the first surgery. Bottom line is you are on your own if you leave the country where the implant was done.

With the penile implant I am able to inflate to have satisfying sex, however am unable to obtain total deflation. Inflation is persistent with subsequent pain in the scrotum to shaft transition area. I have the pump with the bulb and relief valve configuration.

I have had the penile implant (3 piece, pump up) for 6 years and it works great. I have Peyronie's and my natural length is shortened but I can always get it up. I just wish I had done it sooner.

I had undergone penile inflatable prosthesis during 2001. Since severe infection occurred post-surgery, the prosthesis was removed after 20 days. For the last 13 years I am without sex though I have lot of sexual urge.
