A big road block in modern day ED treatment is the emphasis on medication-based treatments. For example, men who experience erectile dysfunction are quick to look for a pill to fix the issue, but don't always realize that there are safe, natural, and more effective solutions available.
Not only that, but some men either can't or don't want to take medication for their ED. If you are dealing with diabetes and already have a lot pills to take, or if you just lead a more natural lifestyle by choice, taking a pill isn't always an option.
The vacuum therapy solution for ED is a completely natural solution. It works entirely on physics, with no chemicals entering your body.
Here's How it Works
The vacuum therapy system starts with a simple penile tube. Using a lubricated loading cone and specialized pushing device, an elastic support ring is placed around the tube. The penile tube with the support ring are then placed over the penis and a pump creates a vacuum in the tube. The vacuum draws blood into the penis, creating an erection. The support ring is then moved to the base of the penis to hold the blood in and the device is removed. The support ring can remain on the penis for up to 30 minutes.
Advantages of Vacuum Therapy
Vacuum therapy has several advantages over other erectile dysfunction treatments. Perhaps the biggest advantage is that there are no drugs involved. This means that there is no chance of interactions with other medications the patient may be taking.
It also means that vacuum therapy can be used in combination with other erectile dysfunction solutions, such as medication. The FDA has approved the Rejoyn vacuum therapy system for use without a prescription, allowing the system to be purchased over the counter.
Some doctors will prescribe vacuum therapy to patients who have recently had radical prostatectomy surgery as a way to regain penile length after the surgery.
Results will vary based on the patient and the frequency of use, but many men have reported an increase in both length and circumference after using vacuum therapy systems.
Vacuum Therapy VS Other Solutions
Other solutions to erectile dysfunction that don’t involve medications are surgical implants. Stiff, malleable rods can be inserted into the penis to allow for sexual intercourse, or inflatable tubes can be inserted and filled with pressurized fluid from a pump that is often located in the scrotum. Many people prefer the non-invasive nature of vacuum therapy devices.
Vacuum therapy solutions allow for more spontaneity than medications. Medications must be absorbed by the body before they can take effect, which means they must be taken some time prior to intercourse. Vacuum therapy is done immediately prior to intercourse, so there is no need to plan far in advance.
Almost 90 percent of men who use vacuum therapy devices report being satisfied with their experience. This makes vacuum therapy one of the most reliable treatments of erectile dysfunction available.
Side Effects of Vacuum Therapy
Some side effects include a cooler penis temperature, which some couples find off-putting. Some men also experience bruising or a decrease in the force of their ejaculation due to the support ring. This does not have an effect on the sensation of orgasm.
