ED Pumps Pros and Cons

ED pumps or penis pumps have pros and cons. ED pumps or penis pumps are used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction or impotence but are also used recreationally. Many men use ED pumps or penis pumps as a means of adding girth or length to the penis prior to sexual encounters, who do not have erectile dysfunction or impotence. Impotence or erectile dysfunction is considered the inability to get or keep an erection for a period of time. Erectile dysfunction can be a result of damage or injury to the area, surgery, medications being taken, stress, diabetes, prostate conditions, heart disease, high or low blood pressure as well as atherosclerosis or stroke. Being obese, smoking and having an unhealthy lifestyle or uncontrolled blood sugar or nerve damage are all causes of erectile dysfunction.

The pros of ED pumps or penis pumps are that you can use this in the privacy of your own home, without anyone knowing you have ED. The initial cost of the pump is the only cost ever associated with the pump, with the exception of replacement parts over the years of use. Users see immediate results with no side effects using pumps. There is no prescription needed for pumps of any kind. Pumps can be bought online so that no one knows what you are buying. There are many versions of the pump, and you can have one custom made through some companies. After the ED is no longer a problem for you, the pump can help add girth and length to your penis after use. There are no shots, suppositories or drugs to use when you have the pump. The pump can be used regardless of medical conditions or medications being taken as there are no drug interactions.

There are a few cons to having ED pumps as well. The initial cost can be high for a pump depending on where it is purchased. There are many types to choose from, and if you have never looked a pumps before you could be confused. Pumps mean that you have to use it directly prior to having sexual intercourse in order to keep the erection during sex.
