There are many reasons men—and their partners—like penis pumps. These devices are effective not only as a treatment for ED, but also as a way to simply make erections harder, longer, and more satisfying. Here we look at what’s involved with using vacuum therapy for ED and five reasons these tools are becoming more and more popular in helping men take back their sex lives.
First: Is it ED?
Before you explore trying a vacuum pump for ED, it’s good to know whether you indeed have erectile dysfunction. Keep in mind that an “off night” does not necessarily mean it is ED. For it to be ED it has to happen more than 75% of the time. And, it has to be purely related to your ability to get an erection, and not just your ability to be “in the mood.” For more information, explore these symptoms of ED, or visit your doctor.
How does a vacuum pump for ED work?
A penis pump or vacuum therapy device consists of an acrylic penile tube that is placed over the top of the penis. One end of the tube goes up against your body at the base of the penis, while the other end of the tube is attached to a manual or battery-operated pump. The pump produces a vacuum suction that draws blood into your penis, creating an erection. Once the erection is in place, an elastic support ring is placed around the base of the penis, sustaining the erection.
What can make a penis pump sexy is that partners can be involved in the process. They can apply lubricant to the adapter bushing, which helps secure the penile tube to the base of the penis. They can also help in operating the pump and placing the elastic support ring.
5 reasons men opt for vacuum therapy.
Once you are ready to try a penis pump, there are many reasons you’ll be glad you did.
Medical-grade devices. One of the best aspects of a penis pump—like those sold through Rejoyn Medical—is that they are not toys. They are quality medical-grade devices. They are not made from chintzy materials with sub-standard parts. The materials are first-rate and the pumps are built to be used and to last. In addition, quality pumps—like those from Rejoyn Medical—have a no-questions-asked, 30-day money-back guarantee.
Well-received. Another reason to try a vacuum pump for ED is that it works. Rejoyn Medical vacuum devices are proven effective in 90% of clinical trials. What does a penis pump do? They mimic the process the body goes through when it is aroused and eliminate the guesswork involved in whether you’re able to get an erection.
They often work when other ED treatment plans don’t. And they can be used when other treatment plans are not advised due to medical conditions or prescription medications. For example, medications for ED should not be used by men who:
- Take nitrite drugs
- Have very low blood pressure or uncontrolled high blood pressure
- Have severe liver disease
- Or have kidney disease that requires dialysis
Regardless of whether you cannot take these medications, or you’re using them and getting less than optimal results, an ED pump is a good alternative. (Learn more here about how to use a penis pump to supplement Viagra.)
Natural. Another winning feature is that penis pumps are 100% natural. It’s an external solution. There are no pills, prescriptions, medical side effects, or counterindications based on other medications you’re on. It requires no doctor’s prescriptions or appointments, or surgical intervention.
Safety. Penis pumps are also safe. Sources indicate that quality pumps have a transparent penile tube so you can monitor your penis while you’re using the pump to make sure it doesn’t become irritated or discolored. Also, quality pumps have safety release valves that automatically trigger if too much vacuum pressure is building up. Pumps sold through Rejoyn Medical have both an internal and external safety valve. This means the pump will shut off automatically if needed, and the user can shut it off as well if it begins to feel uncomfortable. These pumps are also FDA-approved.
Suited to you. A final reason to try a vacuum pump for ED is that it is individually suited to each user. Whether you want just an enhancement to your love-making or a solution to ED, your penis pump becomes your tool—an extension of you.
Pumps come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and models. They can be manual or battery-operated based entirely on preference. Pumps can be used as foreplay, or for intercourse, or they can be used on your own.
They can also be used as an integral part of the penile rehabilitation process to facilitate sex after prostate cancer. According to health experts, using a penis pump regularly after surgery—without the penis ring—can aid in the healing process. It stimulates oxygenation of the corpora, reducing or reversing the fibrotic changes that can occur after a prostatectomy. It can improve the delivery of oxygen to the penile tissues and thus minimize damage. In addition, not only does the pump promote healing, it also helps the user rebuild confidence in the ability to perform again when the rehabilitation is over.
For these and many more reasons, penis pumps are becoming the go-to solution for men experiencing erectile dysfunction. (Here are 10 undeniable reasons to love penis pumps right here.) Put simply: Do penis pumps work? Yes! Results are immediate, and they don’t require popping a pill that can mess with your health or other medications.
