Do Penis Pumps Work? Common Questions About Penis Pumps for ED

Do penis pumps work? The natural and effective penis pump has the potential to positively impact your erectile dysfunction, or ED, symptoms before your very eyes. It’s easy to learn how to use, and a ED pump lacks serious adverse side effects, making it the perfect solution for ED symptoms that may be wreaking havoc on your sex life. Before you embrace this option as your ED treatment of choice, you may have basic questions about how a penis pump works and what to expect when using one. Luckily, the answers you seek lie just ahead for your convenient investigation.

How Does a Penis Pump Help Achieve an Erection?

Penis pumps gently draw blood into the erectile tissues using negative pressure, which mimics the body’s natural processes of moving blood into the penis. You simply place a cylinder and negative pressure device “also known as an ED pump” around the non-erect penis. Upon activation, the device vacates air from the cylinder which in turn pulls blood into the penis. As the blood flows into the erectile tissues, you will naturally achieve the fullest natural erection possible. A penis pump takes very little time to use and has few known side effects. You can quickly impact your erectile dysfunction symptoms in a positive way by having a penis pump readily available.

What Keeps the Blood from Flowing Out of the Erectile Tissues Prematurely?

While the penis pump draws blood flow into the erectile tissues, a very simple minimalistic device, called a tension system or ring, is required to keep the tissues engorged and to maintain an erection for the desired effect. After applying the device, you simply slide the tension ring from the base of the Ed pump cylinder to the base of your penis, where it sits snugly against your body. The tension ring remains out of the way during your sexual activities and is easily removed once you are ready to release the erection.

How Many Men are Satisfied with the Results of Penis Pumps for ED?

While it is effective for 95 percent of men who use it, up to 80 percent of men are satisfied with the results achieved while using penis pumps to resolve ED symptoms and to achieve the fullest natural erection possible. The tension system, or ring, helps maintain the erection that lasts through the duration of the intended sexual activities. Unlike other therapy options, there are no lengthy waiting periods, side effects are minimal when using a penis pump to achieve an erection on demand. It is recommended that you use the tension system to maintain the erection for no more than 30 minutes at a time, after 30 minutes you simply remove the tension system, and re-apply the ED pump if you choose.

What is the Best Way to Answer, “Do Penis Pumps Work for My ED Symptoms?”

The absolute best way to determine if a penis pump can relieve your erectile dysfunction symptoms, and allow you to achieve an erection on demand, is by speaking with your physician and trying the system for yourself. A vacuum therapy device is quite easy to acquire and learn how to use, which will undoubtedly allow you to confidently reclaim your sex life.

Whether you have a prescription or not, you can acquire a manual or battery operated SomaTherapy-ED device from Augusta Medical Systems to try out this treatment option for yourself. Of course, it is always a good idea to talk with a doctor beforehand to rule out underlying medical conditions before attempting to treat your ED symptoms yourself. Once you receive the go-ahead from your doctor, you may determine if a penis pump will work to treat your ED symptoms.

Top 3 Reasons Why an ED Pump Will Not Work

Not all ED pumps are effective


There are challenges to buying an effective, high quality ED pump.  Unlike other consumer products such as automobiles, clothing, or household appliances, it is difficult to compare one erectile dysfunction pump to another before making a purchase.  Neighbors might compare gas grills or sporting goods for product quality, but information is not openly or practically exchanged about ED pumps.  Seldom can a potential buyer physically hold an ED pump in his hands, compare it to other products in the same category, and make a sensible inspection of the device before making a purchase.  Men who have had the chance to physically inspect and evaluate different ED pumps are usually very surprised at how much the quality and value of one device can vary from another.

Many inexpensive and poorly manufactured devices are available. We are all attempting to achieve the highest value for the least amount of cost, this can be a challenge when purchasing an ED pump. Vacuum therapy is very commonly dismissed as ineffective by those who buy the least expensive device.  Too often a man will reject the entire therapy because they unintentionally purchased an ineffective product and don’t know it. Low cost and poor design may appear effective, and often it is the device not the treatment that is ineffective. The men who realize this have a common story.  They usually experience just enough of a positive result from a novelty product to then purchase a higher quality product.  These men often feel like they wasted money buying the inexpensive product first, but love the therapy when using a medical grade device.

Unrealistic expectations


erectile dysfunction pumps unrealistic expectationsWhen a man watches a 45 second video titled “how does a vacuum pump work,” purchases a device, and expects to take the device out the box and instantly achieve results, he will likely be disappointed.  Regardless of the vacuum erection device, there is a learning curve to get great results from an ED pump.  It is not uncommon to spend several days with multiple practice sessions before you can successfully use an ED pump with your partner.

Consider the time that it takes to get accustomed to your first pair of eye glasses. Don’t forget the adjustments that were necessary to get the best fit from an orthopedic brace, or even the days you spent breaking in a new pair of shoes.  Reflect upon these experiences and you will have much more realistic expectations around learning to get great results from an ED pump.  Experimentation and learning to use a ED pump is natural and necessary, don’t buy into advertisers who attempt to sell you instant gratification regarding vacuum therapy. When this is the expectation men become frustrated, then give up just before mastering the technique of using an ED pump properly. The device, like all new experiences, will seem awkward at first, and with some practice it becomes simple, and easy, to create your fullest natural erection in under 2 minutes.

Re-conditioning penile tissues for erectile function


Depending on the amount of time a man has gone without erectile function it may take several weeks of daily reconditioning to create a full erection or to create an erection without pain.  In the absence of regular erections and blood flow over several years, blood vessels, veins and tissues that facilitate blood flow in the penis can atrophy, shrink, and sometimes die.  In most cases this can be overcome. But in these cases, it requires patience, persistence, and training.  Tissue atrophy doesn’t happen overnight and reconditioning penile tissues does not happen overnight either.

Reconditioning the penile tissues is done through training sessions with an ED pump and by slowly moving blood from the body into the penis using negative pressure.  To do this, you apply the device and create vacuum. At the point in which slight discomfort is experienced, pressure should be released.  Repeat the process 3-5 times per daily session.  After time, the tolerance to negative pressure decreases and the quality of the erection increases.  Each man is different and the reconditioning process can sometimes take 2-3 weeks.  Without patience and a willingness to go through the reconditioning process some men abandon the therapy because of pain or partial erections that would have otherwise subsided with time.

Realistic expectations and training penile tissues is up to you.  If you would like to purchase the best in class vacuum therapy device which has been prescribed by over 50% of Urologist in the United States, contact Augusta Medical Systems at 1-800-827-8382.
