E.D. Pumps Have Many Uses

Erectile dysfunction and impotence are interrelated terms. Erectile dysfunction is a clinical term used to describe the physical disorder of impotence. ED pumps are a way of helping to counteract the physical effects of erectile dysfunction. Impotence is common in men who also suffer from diabetes, as well as those over 55 years of age.

ED pumps are commonly suggested by doctors for those men who suffer from impotence. ED pumps also known as penis pumps can be bought over the counter and do not require a prescription for use. Penis pumps and impotence go hand in hand for most men along with medication for the erectile dysfunction.

Impotence or erectile dysfunction is described as the inability to begin or keep an erection. Penis pumps are also called vacuum constriction devices and vacuum pumps as well as ED pumps. The pumps are a means of helping with impotence when medications do not work or the penile implant surgery is not an option. Penis pumps can help to maintain penis size as well as help to regain function after prostate surgery in many cases. The pumps offer less chances of problems for many men, as there are no side effects.

After the initial cost to purchase the pump, this option is less expensive that all other erectile dysfunction treatments. The pumps are also noninvasive meaning there is no injection or surgery required for it to work. The pump can be used with any other treatments including penile implant and medications, whereas other options have restrictions on using them with other treatment options. After prostate surgery when erectile dysfunction is seen, the pump can help to regain regular function sexually. Using a pump also has other options including helping to maintain the girth and length of the penis after surgery or without surgery.
