Men that are interested in increasing the length of their penis may go to any lengths to find the right method and right equipment to do so. The penis pump has been around for years and has been tried by millions of men over that time, but historically has had little to no positive growth results to show for. The penis pump is a device that uses vacuum pressure to increase the flow of blood to the penis. In theory, this should work; however, the device provides a temporary enlargement that goes away almost immediately.
One of the least favorite results of the penis pump is that it can numb the penis. This is not a feeling that most men want to experience. It can be especially uncomfortable and can possibly harm the penis. The pump has also been known to cause painful ejaculations after its use.
Some feel that the pump is best used directly before having sex. However, with so many problems and a complete lack of spontaneity, the pump is often discarded altogether. The worst types of injuries that a man can experience from using this type of device are scars, ruptured capillaries, blisters and even bleeding. While you are welcome to try a penis pump, do so completely warned. There are better and more modern solutions to penis enlargement and for the most part, the penis pump should only be seen as a humorous novelty. Look into medical devices that provide slow, comfortable traction for the penis. This type of device is more commonly used and suggested by medical professionals.
