How a Penis Pump Works

How a Penis Pump Works

A vacuum constriction device or VCD, commonly called a penis pump, is often used as a natural form of treatment for Erectile Dysfunction or ED. It is a device commonly referred by doctors for medical use, not just male enhancement. But perhaps you’re wondering how a penis pump works?

The pump is for external use, meaning there are no oral supplements or invasive procedures involved.  The VCD consists of an acrylic cylinder with a pump to be attached directly to the end of the penis. It also comes with a constriction ring or band to be placed on the base of the penis. These two pieces work together.  While the cylinder and pump are used to create a vacuum and help the penis become erect, the constriction ring is used to help maintain the erection.

Aeroflow Healthcare offers a few different types of pumps to treat erectile dysfunction. Some penis pumps are available without a prescription, but talk to your doctor before purchasing one. Your doctor may recommend or prescribe a specific model, and it is always a good idea to keep your health provider in the loop with any medical device you may be using.  There are models that offer both battery and manual pumping options.  However, whichever model you choose, make sure it has a vacuum limiter which keeps pressure from getting too high and injuring your penis.

For discrete answers to any other questions you may have about VCD’s, including requests for a penis pump through insurance, contact us here at Aeroflow Healthcare today.
