Erectile Dysfunction and Penis Pumps

Erectile dysfunction or impotence is a condition where the blood vessels in the penis either do not constrict to keep blood in the engorged penis, or stays constricted so blood cannot pass into the penis. Either way, erectile dysfunction or impotence is a treatable condition. Impotence or erectile dysfunction can be caused by many things including uncontrolled diabetes, stress, obesity, high or low blood pressure and many other conditions. Damage or injury to the underlying tissues is another reason for erectile dysfunction, and some injuries may not alert a man by pain. Therefore if erectile dysfunction is experienced, it is best to seek out a professional.

Erectile dysfunction is the lack of ability to get or continue to have an erection. Men of all ages have erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. Whether this is due to underlying physical conditions or stress, there are treatment options other than drugs or surgery. Penis pumps or ED pumps are commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction. Penis pumps or ED pumps can be purchased from many online retailers and there is no prescription required. Many men who do not have erectile dysfunction use penis pumps or ED pumps as a means of adding length or girth to their penis prior to sexual encounters. Pumps have been used for many years as a treatment, and show immediate results to those who use it regularly.

There are many types of pumps available. A basic pump is made of a tube, pump and constriction bands. The bands are placed on the penis and then the penis is inserted into the tube. The pump is then engaged and removes the air from the tube. This action makes the blood flow to the penis and then causes the blood vessels to constrict to cause an erection. There are many online stores that offer a full line of pumps for a varying cost. The initial cost of your pump is much less than the overall cost of any medication or other treatment associated with erectile dysfunction.
