After your session, release the air pressure valve or turn to open it. This will release the vacuum you created within the pump, so you can remove your penis easily.
Check your dick for any unusual discoloration. It might look a bit more purple than usual. If there is any serious change in color or pain, you should stop. If everything feels alright, you can continue for another session.
Penis Pump Effectiveness
According to one study, 42 men underwent a radical prostatectomy. A day after their catheters were removed, they began using a penis pump for 90 days.
Thirty-six men used a penis pump and 50% of the 90 days and only one of them had a decrease in penis length of 1.0 centimeter. On the other hand, a previous research showed that 48% of men had a significant reduction in penis length after prostatectomy. So, the use of penis pump soon after the surgery is an effective way to preserve your penis length.
Penis pumps are also called VCD (vacuum constriction device) as it is used to alleviate erection problems. According to another study, VCD is indeed effective in helping with ED achieve an erection.
About 50% to 80% of men with ED are satisfied with the results of using VCDs in helping them achieve an erection and perform in the bedroom.
A study published in the British Journal of Urology International in 2006 reveals that using a penis pump can product minor increase in the penis. The research includes a group of men who used penis pumps three times a week for 20 minutes each session over a period of six months.
The researchers learned that there was an average increase of 0.3 centimeters which is not statistically significant. However, 30% of the men who participated in the study were already satisfied with it.
Although the result of the study shows that the increase was insignificant, men who are using a penis pump, including me, can attest to its effectiveness in enlarging our dicks. I experience over an inch growth in my member and I couldn’t be happier.
I’m so happy with the results that I am still using it until today. I am aiming to have 2.5 inches gain in length.
How Long to Use Penis Pump
When I was still a penis pump newbie I was asking myself “how long should I pump my penis ”? Of course, I don’t want to take risks and injure myself in the process because I only have one penis and I can’t afford to mess it up.
I did my research on how long to keep penis pump on. I reached out to penis pump forums to get an idea and eventually learned that you should only use this for a couple of minutes.
The general rule suggests that you take 3-5 minute break every 15-minute session of high-level pumping. At low-level pumping, the in-tube time between breaks can go as high up to 30 minutes.
Taking breaks during your pumping session is not an option, it’s a must. This is helpful in stimulating the blood flow. Also, as you take a break, you release the pressure build-up in the penile tissues.
Just be reminded that you shouldn’t use a penis pump for more than 20 minutes. For your safety, do not ever try pumping longer than what was recommended.
