ED Pumps – How do i use it?


What is an ED Pump & how is it used?

The ED Pump is a plastic cylinder with a battery or manual pump, the open end is slid directly over the penis. The cylinder and pump are then used to create a vacuum to help the penis become erect. When erect: a constriction ring or band is slid off the cylinder and onto the erect penis. The constriction ring or band, helps maintain the erection during intercourse.

I see that you sell different models, what is the difference?

Offered are battery and manual pumps. Its user preference on the selection. New users tend to find the battery models easier, while more advance users like the ability of control, offered by the manual models. A number of kits are offered like the Encore Deluxe Ed Pump, this kit offers both a manual and battery pump in its kits.

How Well Do ED Pumps Work?

Recent studies suggest that about 50%-80% of men are satisfied with the results of ED Pumps. As with any other method of treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), satisfaction rates may decrease with time.

There are drugs  like Viagra on the market today, Why use an ED Pump?

There are a number of reasons not to take Viagra or the other medications for ED. I have listed a number of reasons below.

1. Single tablets can cost 18.00 – 25.00 each. Insurance companys have placed restrictions on the units allowed and a growing number do not cover the cost at all. An ED pump is a one time cost from 100-400 depending on model.

2. Don’t take Viagra if you’re taking nitrate drugs for chest pain or heart problems.¬† This mix can cause a sudden and serious drop in blood pressure, making you feel dizzy and faint, and possibly bring on a heart attack or stroke.

3. In addition, for men who’ve had prostate surgery, a regimen of vacuum device usage is recommended – four or five times daily — to help increase the blood flow to the penis. It may take several months to work.

4. Taking is medication, as listed below for a another treatment.

Do not take Viagra if you are taking other drugs for erectile dysfunction, such as Stendra, Cialis, or Levitra.

Using these drugs with sildenafil is not recommended:

  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)
  • Bosentan (Tracleer)
  • Imatinib (Gleevec)
  • Nefazodone (Serzone)
  • St. John’s wort
  • Antibiotics: such as clarithromycin (Biaxin), erythromycin (EryPed 200, EryPed 400)
  • Antifungal medications: fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox)
  • Heart or blood pressure medications: amlodipine (Norvasc), amiodarone (Cordarone, Nexterone, Pacerone)
  • Hepatitis C medications: boceprevir (Victrelis)
  • HIV/AIDS medications: ritonavir (Norvir), amprenavir (Agenerase), atazanavir (Reyataz)
  • Seizure medications: carbamazepine (Tegretol), fosphenytoin (Cerebyx)
  • Tuberculosis medications: isoniazid (Isoniazid)

Viagra and Grapefruit

Avoid consuming grapefruit and grapefruit juice while taking sildenafil.

Grapefruit products can hinder the breakdown of sildenafil, causing it to be absorbed in larger quantities that can reach toxic levels.
