Impotence Doesn't Have To Be An Embarrassing Problem

May 31, 2008
I began having trouble maintaining an erection so I went to the doctor for a check up. She told me I had ED commonly know as erectile dysfunction or impotence. I'm not going to lie to you, I felt devastated. This was primarily due to my pre conceived notions and misconceptions about impotence.

It was only after a few more visits to the doctor and hours of internet research that I breathed a sigh of relief. What I thought I knew about impotence and what was actually true were two completely different things.

My life wasn't over after all! To my surprise there were plenty of treatment options at my disposal. One being prescription pills such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra that I could get from my local pharmacy. Another option was a vacuum constriction device that I could get over the counter from my local drugstore. After careful consideration I decided to try the vacuum method.

Before I go any further please let me explain what a vacuum constriction device is and how it works. You may be more familiar with the term penis pump in regards to a vacuum constriction device. It isn't a vacuum in the home cleaning sense of the word.

It is just a cylinder you place your penis into that you hand pump to create a vacuum suction effect. However there are motorized versions on the market as well. When using this device the penis is pumped in an erect state. They are very inexpensive and easy to find at any drugstore usually in the health care section. There was an assortment to choose from and some even vibrated and came in different colors.

After about half an hour of browsing I chose one standard size model with basic functions. I must admit I was a little embarrassed when I went up to the counter to purchase it. Thankfully the store clerk was very discreet the entire time. One quick word of advice, grab some water based lubricant while you are there. Without it you may experience some discomfort while using your pump.

Now it was time to test out the vacuum and see what the results would be, if any. The information that came with the pump suggested that I cut my pubic hair before use and apply the lubricant. I skipped the hair trimming step altogether and just applied the lubricant, then I placed on the pump.

It is also recommended that you lay flat on a bed or a sofa while you use the pump. Standing up during use may cause fatigue and it can be very awkward. During use my penis began to get firm and plump. The erection would last for longer and longer periods of time after each use.

I would use it roughly two to four times a week at three to five minute durations. Over use can be very painful and possible cause serious harm. Mental fantasies or other forms of sexual stimulation may be needed. After a couple of weeks of use I evaluated the results and spoke with my doctor once again.

She was pleased to hear of the results and gave me some pamphlets to read over. Although I'm not cured for impotence, the vacuum constriction device has helped me hold erections for longer duration. I am very pleased and I would suggest this impotence treatment to anyone.
