Do Penis Pumps Work?

Penis pumps are male enhancement products that have been on the market for many decades and their uses are quite varied. Some men purchase the pumps to treat issues with weak erections. Others purchase the pumps for the purpose of increasing size. A lot has been written and studied about these pumps over the years and the results are positive. Someone considering purchasing a penis pump should review a few basic points to understand what to expect from the device.

The Concept of the Pump

penis pump is, essentially, a tube in which the organ is inserted into. A ring is present at the base of the tube to seal the tube and make it airtight. A pump is used to remove the air from the tube forcing the penis to react to the lack of air inside the tube. The way the penis reacts is it enlarges.

The notion the pump can be used to treat impotency is not mere wishful thinking. The U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved these pumps to treat erectile dysfunction issues. That is a strong endorsement for the devices.

Using the pump to engorge the penis with blood while erect (per MayoClinic.org) is done as a erectile dysfunction treatment. Those using the pump for enlargement purposes use the pump in a similar manner although for a different purpose.

The pressure the penis experiencing in the pump tube is going to have a reaction. The reaction is a similar one to what is common with penis extenders. The cells in the tissue of the penis end up dividing, which leads to the penis becoming larger in length and thickness. Pressure on the ligaments connecting the penis to the pubic bone may cause the ligaments to extend. As a result, the “inner penis” inside the body could become exposed leading to greater length.

There is a good reason why the pump shares a similarity with penis extenders. The only way the penis can be enlarged is if the tissue divides or more of the inner penis is exposed.

Time Is Required

No one should be of the impression that a penis pump can enlarge the penis in a short period of time. Consistent use of the pump for a recommended amount of time per week is necessary for any permanent results to be experienced.

Modern Advancements

The original version of the penis pump strictly utilized a hand pump designed to manually suction out the air. These particular pumps are still available on the market. They are effective and come with reasonable prices. New versions of the pump are a bit more expensive, but they come with added features that make the expense worth it.

Newer versions of the penis pump are electric models. Simply turning a switch engages the vacuum/suction process. Reportedly, the suction is going to be more intense with the electric version of the pump.

A bath pump is designed to be used when bathing. The pump utilizing water to add to the vacuuming power. Many feel these particular pumps are the most superior. Of course, opinions are going to vary about which types of pumps are better than others.

Medical Warnings

Consumers should only buy a penis pump that was made by a reputable manufacturer. Also, it goes without saying the pump should only be used in the proper manner. Additionally, there are certain medical warnings that do apply. A person who has had a penile implant should not use the pump. Anyone who has undergone penis enlargement surgery should not use a pump without a doctor’s okay. Those with blood clots, blood disorders, or who are using blood-thinning medication – prescription or over-the-counter – should not use a pump.

The best advice that could be given here is, when in doubt, seek a medical professionals advice on how to use the pump.
