The cylinder tube is situated over the penis and a band or ring is placed at the base of the penis. The pump and tube create an erection while the band or ring helps maintain an erection. But, how well do they work?

Myth: Erectile dysfunction pumps increase the size of a man’s penis.

Truth: While ED pumps work effectively as an erectile dysfunction treatment, a pump will not, according to a number of studies, actually increase the size of your penis. By all initial appearances, the penis may look larger; however, when used on a long-term basis, size does not increase.

Myth: There are no side effects caused by the use of erectile dysfunction pumps.

Fact: From a common understanding of side effects, ED pumps do not cause side effects from an internal standpoint. However, they can cause bruising along with black and blue marks along the penis’ shaft. Typically, there is no pain associated with the marks, and they will dissipate in a couple of days.

Erectile dysfunction pumps may also have a negative effect on ejaculation force since the bands tend to restrict or trap semen when orgasm occurs. This situation is not considered dangerous, is usually painless and any remaining semen will seep out when the band or ring is eliminated. One last potential side effect is discoloration or numbness.

Fact: Most erectile dysfunction pumps range between $300 to $500 and the cost is generally dependent on the type of pump and which brand you choose. Battery operated pumps are slightly more expensive, but they work quickly and are helpful for individuals suffering from conditions such as arthritis or poor hand strength. If the condition has been documented by a physician most insurance companies will pay for part, if not all, of the cost.

Fact: Anytime you or your partner is in the mood, erectile dysfunction pumps can be used. They are relatively easy to carry and can be used at any time, in any location.

Fact: This is not an internal medication; therefore virtually anyone can use a pump. However, depending on your health conditions it would be prudent to check with your physician. But, chances are good that you will have the ability to make use of erectile dysfunction pumps.

Myth: Parts of erectile dysfunction pumps are surgically implanted.

Fact: No surgical procedures are needed to use erectile dysfunction pumps. This ED aid is considered non-invasive.

Applying too much force can be a cause of permanent or serious injury to the penis and surrounding arteries. If the particular pump you have selected has several settings begin with the lowest setting first and then increase it gradually.

The best light at the end of the tunnel for the younger generation continues to be this: erectile dysfunction is in no way unavoidable. On the contrary, many millions of men go through their lives without ever having a soft spot in the bedroom.

For those who suffer from ED or are struck with some of the more relevant causes, such as diabetes, there’s a bright light there as well. Science improves every day, and there are always scientists on the lookout for the next best thing.
