I'll come straight to the question: Has anyone explored of alternative treatments to counter venous leaks? I mean something besides viagra (& its various forms), rings, pumps, implants et al.
1. I've heard (might be hearsay) that doing pelvic floor exercises/kegels can sometimes 'plug-up' leaks. Sounds corny but do any of you out there think there's any merit in this? There are a few white papers floating around on this topic. I don't have access to them but if anyone does, please shed some light.
2. Has anyone thought of acupuncture or pranic breathing? There are documented cases of Pranayam (Indian yoga of breathing) dissolving ovarian cysts, knots and tangles in any part of the body. There might be a posiibility of curing venous leaks with this....I'm just surmising.
Any thoughts people?

My Dr. suggested tesoterone because there was a case study done on that proved it was successful on a group of men that were over weight and diabetic. It has not yet worked with me but I am only on my 1st month of treatment. I am 49 not overweight or diabetic but I do have very low testoserone.
This may or maynot work for you.
Honestly I am leaning toward a implant and that is why I am here.
I am looking fo answers.
I posted my story a few months ago. I'm 22 with a diagnosed venous leak. My ability to maintain an erection began to decline at age 13. I can achieve and maintain a pretty decent erection with the use of a medical grade constriction ring. Without using the ring, however, I lose my erection in seconds.
There have been at least 10 girls in my life who I've become very close to only to break the forming relationship the moment the girl tries initiating sexual contact. I'm writing this post because I've recently met another girl who I'm on the brink of intimacy with. I don't think I have it in me to tell the girl about my ED. I've been in this position before and if the pattern holds true, I will break this bond I have with the girl in a few days.
Of these girls that I've "broken up" with, this new girl is probably the one I like the most. So, I guess I have two options here--tell her about my ED (a fact that only my urologist knows about) or "break up" with her.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. How would I go about telling her? Just come out with it? Or just answer her when she sees me putting on the ring? How will I be able to escape the embarrassment?
Chad - I am 36 and I have had venous Leakage all my life, I have never seen my Penis 100% errect at best I seen it 70%. I didnt know what was wrong untill 4 years ago I had an ultra sound and found I had Venous Leakage, full story here--.> http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=716367
Here is what I suggest since you are young and know you have Venous Leakage.
Exhaust all you options, Vigra, Trimix, Vacum Pumps, **** rings, Hormone shots etc
Then take a serious look into Penis implant. I used all my options and when they all failed I got an AMS Implant. I'm currently @ my 2 Weeks Post OP 2day and I can say My mental state has Change Drastically. I had no idea how much weight I was carrying until I had my surgery. As a man this diseases affect you physically and mentally and affect you in life. You may also want to look into antidepressant Trazdone to help deal with ED and hoping the side effect Prolong erection would help with Leakage.
But the short answer is tell her you was Born with Venous Leakage and You hoping she can help you get threw it, explain to her what it is and how it works so she can have some understanding. Some women will understand and sympathies and work with you some will get frustrated or blame them selfs and will not help. In the end whats important is you working to solve your issue so you can have peace of mine. Because when they dont understand out there you have us, and we understand and relate.
