VaxAid V30 vacuum pump device

The penis pump is a device used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. It is also known as the ‘vacuum pump’ or the ‘erectile dysfunction pump’. It works by creating a vaccum which increases the blood flow to the penis. It can be a good alternative for men who can’t use erectile dysfunction medication.

Dispensing and standard delivery included. Next Day Delivery: £3.99

    Side effects are often caused by incorrect use or over-pumping of the device. The penis can feel slightly colder than usual after pump use. You may also notice swelling of superficial veins; minor pain and bruising has also been reported. 

    Whilst orgasms can still be achieved, the ring may affect ejaculation, but this is harmless.

    Other less common side effects include skin breakdown, pain, temporary numbness.

    Oral medication is the most common therapy for erectile dysfunction. This includes sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis) and others.

    There are also medications that can be injected into the penis and creams applied to the tip of the penis such as alprostadil (Vitaros).

    Other drug treatment such as hormone therapy may be beneficial depending on the underlying causes of erectily dysfunction.

    Surgery can also be considered where other forms of treatment for ED have not been effective. As with all surgeries, the risks should be seriously discussed with an appropriate healthcare professional.

    About the penis pump

    What is a penis pump?

    How do erectile dysfunction pumps work?

    How to use a penis pump

    • Consult instruction manual/dvd provided with this product.
    • Ensure valve pip is not pressed and turn the valve clockwise on the plastic cylinder.
    • Place lubricant inside the long insert comfort pad. Place insert into pump cylinder, aligning the markings on the side.
    • Apply lubricant to entire penis and choose a suitable erection ring.
    • Place the ring on base of of penis
    • Place pump over penis ensuring an airtight seal is formed at the base.
    • Pump by pushing the tube towards the body. The ejected air  will increase the blood flow to your penis and help you get an erection.Continue to pump until you achieve an erection.
    • Twist air valve anticlockwise for pressure release and remove the pump, leaving the ring in place which will help maintain the erection.

    The band can be left on for up to thirty minutes after you have stopped using the pump and you should be able to have sex during this time. You must release the band after a maximum of thirty minutes as to leave it on longer can cause damage to the tissue of the penis.

    What side effects can occur when using a penis pump?

    Side effects are usually quite mild, and may include:

    • minor bruising or pain, usually caused by misuse
    • tiny red dots, indications of minor under-skin bleeding as a result of pressure   

  • numbness, a change in the temperature of the penis or a blue tinge to the skin, often caused by the constriction band
  • a feeling that your semen is partially trapped, usually caused by the constriction band
  •  

    It is important to remember that an erection achieved by the use of a penis pump may not feel exactly the same as a natural erection, and your penis may be more flexible than usual.

    Who can’t use a penis pump?

    • have a blood coagulation disorder (such as haemophilia)
    • have another blood disorder (such as leukaemia or sickle cell anaemia)
    • have or have had priapism (prolonged, painful erections)

    Which alternatives are there?

    • If you experience ED for the first time or find that your symptoms worsen you should speak to a doctor or consult an online doctor.
    • You doctor will be able to advise you if you need further medical checks. Since ED can have underlying medical causes, your doctor will want to make sure that you don’t suffer from an undiagnosed condition which needs to be treated.

    If you find that the penis pump doesn’t suit you or you find it difficult to use, you may want to consider trying tablets for erectile dysfunction instead.
