What is an ED pump?
An erectile dysfunction pump is a device used to help achieve and maintain an erection by drawing blood into the penis via air suction. It’s not a cure for erectile dysfunction (ED), but can help increase your ability to have sexual intercourse. This device is sometimes called a penis pump or vacuum pump. It’s a noninvasive treatment that can be used alone or with other ED treatments or oral medications.
It may take a bit of practice, but most men are able to have sexual intercourse using an ED pump. Other benefits include the following:
- lower risk of complications than with other ED treatments
- minimal cost after initial purchase
- noninvasive treatment
The ED pump is generally considered to be safe, but can cause increased bleeding in men who:
- have sickle cell anemia
- have any blood disorder that causes bleeding or interferes with clotting
- take blood thinners
Potential side effects include:
- bluish-colored skin
- numbness or coldness
- painful ejaculation
- red dots caused by bleeding under the skin’s surface, called petechiae
