    Intracavernous pharmacotherapy (ICP) is a treatment for premature ejaculation (PE) advocated by the Boston Medical Group, an official-sounding contingent of 23 medical groups in North America. With ICP, you must inject a vasodilator drug into your penis, which results in increased blood flow to the organ. According to the Boston Medical Group, this procedure causes an erection that lasts about an hour, even after you ejaculate.
    The bottom line: Aside from the unpleasantness of injecting something into your penis, ICP can have several side effects, including pain or tenderness, bruising, scarring, and prolonged, painful erections. Worse, the approach can be dangerous: In 2009, a former patient successfully sued the company for permanent damage to his penis caused by ICP.
