How Effective are Penis Pumps in Treating Erectile Dysfunction?

Although popularly known as “penis pumps,” vacuum pumps are essentially plastic cylinder devices used by men to obtain erections. Vacuum pumps work by placing the device over the penis and sucking out the air from the tube. This removal of air from the tube creates vacuum pressure and blood is forced rapidly into the penis.

A ring is then applied temporarily to the base of the penis to stop the blood draining away too quickly. Ultimately this device can help to sustain an erection for a period of time adequate for sexual intercourse.

Studies have found that vacuum pumps are just as effective to other methods of treating Erectile Dysfunction (E.D.).  According to reports done by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, between 56% and 67% of men using a penis pump reported the device to be effective.

In one study of men who had used the vacuum device for many years, almost 79% reported improvement in their relationships with their sexual partners, and 83.5% said they had intercourse whenever they chose. Nevertheless, one should be fully aware of the proper use of such devices and be sure to always follow the instructions.
