Prolonged Erection (Priapism)

Men who experience an erection lasting more than four hours should seek help in the emergency room. Treatment needs to occur within eight hours of the start of an erection to avoid permanent damage to the penis.

One cause of prolonged erections is medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. This is a rare side effect of pills like Viagra, but occurs more frequently when this type of drug is injected directly into the penis.

Treatment options include draining excess blood from the penis with a needle, medication to limit blood flow into the penis, or surgery.
