The penis pump consists of the cylinder and pump. They are used to create a vacuum to help the penis become erect; the cock ring is then used to help maintain the erection.

How to Use a Penis Pump and Cock Ring for Erectile Dysfunction

    • Place the pump over the penis. If you’re using the Bathmate Xtreme you can use it either in the shower or bath (wet) or with the pump (dry).
    • Pump the air out of the cylinder so that a vacuum is created. The vacuum draws blood into the shaft of the penis and causes it to swell and become erect.
    • Once the penis is erect, with the help of lubricant, slide the cock ring down onto the lower end of the penis.
    • Remove the pump after releasing the vacuum.

Intercourse can be attempted with the constriction band in place to help maintain the erection. The band can be left on safely for up to 30 minutes to allow for successful intercourse.

Be sure whichever pump you use that it contains a “quick release” feature, to prevent potential injury.

How Well do Penis Pumps Work for Erectile Dysfunction?

Studies suggest that about 50% to 80% of men are satisfied with the results of using penis pumps with cock rings. As with any other method of treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED).

Who Should Consider Using a Penis Pump for Erectile Dysfunction?

Penis pumps are safe and can be used by patients with ED caused by many conditions, including:

    • Poor blood flow to the penis
    • Diabetes
    • Surgery for prostate or colon cancer
    • Psychological issues such as anxiety or depression

Penis pumps should not be used by men who may have a significant congenital bleeding disorder or a disorder that predisposes them to a condition called priapism (a prolonged, sometime painful erection lasting over several hours). Examples include sickle cell anemia, some forms of leukemia, and other blood conditions. 

As always, your penile healthy is significantly linked to your cardiovascular health. Erection difficulties can be a sign of more serious, and potentially life-threatening, circulation problems. Always talk to a medical professional, to rule out any more serious issues.
