How Medical Penis Pumps Can Be the Solution When ED Treatments Fail

With ads for erectilehow-a-medical-penis-pump-can-be-the-solution-when-other-ed-treatments-fail dysfunction drugs such as Viagra and Cialis bombarding us everywhere, it’s natural to think medication is the only way to treat ED. The truth is ED medications are not always desired by–or advised for–everyone, and there are other solutions out there. One that is growing in popularity as more people discover its effectiveness is the medical penis pump.

Let's look at the full truth about these pumps and see how they stack up against other ED treatments.



The correct term for a medical penis pump is either Vacuum Therapy System (VTS) or Vacuum Erection Device (VED). Penis pumps have been around for a long time. The first known illustration and patent of a pump dates back to 1911 (See image.)

The pumps have come a long way in the last century improving on performance, size, and automatization. Now, if you Google the term penis pump, you might be surprised at the thousands of products that are available on the market today.

How does a medical penis pump work?

Penis pumps are very simple devices that mimic your body's natural method of creating an erection. When your body naturally creates an erection, enzymes in your brain send messages telling the veins in your penis to widen. This pulls more blood into the area causing the penis to engorge. Then the back flow values in these veins close, trapping the blood in the area.  

With a penis pump, you attach the pumphead to a cylinder and then place your flaccid penis into the cylinder. Once the pumphead and cylinder are pressed tightly against your body, the vacuum is activated and begins to draw blood into the penis, using negative vacuum pressure and thus creating an erection. A penis pump usually takes two to five minutes to form an erection. Once the erection is created, a support ring then is placed around the base of the penis to hold the erection in place.

Penis pumps for erectile dysfunction treatment

Before Viagra and other prescription drugs for ED hit the market, treatments for ED were either prescribed penis pumps or surgery to have a penile implant inserted into the shaft of the penis and testicles.

Some of the benefits of using a medical penis pump include the fact that it is:

  • A completely natural, drug-free treatment
  • Affordable when compared to the cost of prescription pills 
  • Completely external, with no surgery or needles for injections
  • Capable of producing a firm erection suitable for intercourse
  • Fast – it can work in two to five minutes

These are negative aspects of using a penis pump for erectile dysfunction treatment

  • It can cut into foreplay. This can be prevented by making the penis pump part of the foreplay process.
  • The penile temperature of the erection will be cooler than normal.

Why is a medical penis pump a good alternative?

There are many reasons vacuum therapy devices are becoming more popular. Rejoyn Medical devices, for one, are proven effective in over 90% of clinical trials. They are FDA-certified, safe, and pain-free. In addition, results when using a medical penis pump are immediate. There is no waiting time wondering when a solution is going to “kick in.” Moreover, these devices do not require doctor’s visits or prescriptions.

Another reason a medical penis pump is a good alternative is that men often don’t want another prescription to manage, the side effects of taking a pill, or the stress of wondering how one medication will react with other medications they’re on. 

At the same time, there are men who cannot be prescribed ED medications because they:

  • Are taking nitrate drugs commonly prescribed for chest pain
  • Have low blood pressure or uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • Have severe liver disease, or
  • Have kidney disease requiring dialysis

Because of these situations, an FDA-approved penis pump can be an ideal alternative to safely treat ED.

Additional benefits.

Moreover, there are other reasons to choose a medical penis pump:

  • It is less expensive over time. Medications can involve doctor co-pays, as well as costs ranging from $30 to $50 per pill. A penis pump is a one-time expense.
  • It increases confidence. Vacuum therapy allows men to achieve an erection whenever they want it. This ability to “perform” at will can go far in boosting the ego and helping men feel more assertive and self-assured.
  • It can improve relationships. Incorporating a penis pump into your love making requires communication and intimacy, which can strengthen your relationship in and out of the bedroom. A penis pump can even make sex better than ever

Here are four questions you should ask when buying a penis pump for erectile dysfunction treatment:

  1. Make sure the pump is intended for the treatment of ED. There are a lot of novelty medical penis pumps on the market and they are not designed to create enough pressure to help with ED.
  2. Understand the company that you are purchasing the pump from. Will they offer you support after buying the system? Do they offer a Money Back Guarantee? Check the company's standing with the Better Business Bureau.
  3. Make sure the penis pump has a safety release valve, which helps regulate the amount of pressure that can be created by the vacuum.  
  4. It is best to buy a pump that has been approved by the FDA. With the FDA approval, you know the system you are buying has a solid safety record.

A medical penis pump could be just what you need to return to sex and regain the life you love – all without drugs, doctor’s appointments, or side effects.  A medical penis pump provides new options – and even new excitement – to an increasing number of relationships.
