Choosing Between Medications or ED Pumps

Erectile dysfunction or impotence has a few different options for treatment. Treatments for erectile dysfunction or Impotence includes penile implants, surgery to redirect blood flow, medications and ED pumps or penis pumps. Erectile dysfunction or Impotence is seen in men of all ages, regardless of other factors. Underlying causes for Erectile dysfunction includes but is not limited to high or low blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, alcohol or drug use, medications, injury, stress and depression to name a few.

Erectile dysfunction treatment options can be discussed with a doctor depending on the nature of your Erectile dysfunction and the outcome of previous treatments. The first treatment doctors like to use is ED pumps or penis pumps. Penis pumps or ED pumps have no side effects and can be used regardless of other medical conditions. Medications have side effects and restrictions so that some men are not able to take them. Medications do not always work alone, and pumps are then suggested along with medication. The overall cost of medication on a continuing basis can be large, even with insurance. Penis pumps are generally not covered by insurance policies, but are much less expensive to purchase than any other treatment.

The initial cost for this Erectile dysfunction treatment can be minimal depending on the model purchased and the retailer visited. A doctor can give you more detailed information on their recommendations for the type of pump to use for your case. Most all pumps are the same, being made up of a pump, tubing and cylinder. The penis is placed in the cylinder and the pump removes the air through tubing to cause an erection. Constriction rings are then put in place to keep the erection after the pump is removed. Medications wear off after a few hours, and can cause side effects even after the medication is no longer being used.
