Vacuum Therapy Devices Have No Side Effects

Vacuum therapy devices are also called ED pumps or penis pumps. Penis pumps and ED pumps are used as a common treatment of erectile dysfunction or impotence. Impotence or Erectile dysfunction is medical terms to describe the inability of the body to get or keep an erection for a period of time. Vacuum therapy devices are the most commonly recommended treatments for this condition for many reasons.

Vacuum therapy devices do not have serious side effects like surgery or medications. Medications have restrictions due to drug interactions; therefore many men cannot use them. Vacuum therapy devices do not offer drug interactions as vacuum therapy devices are simply manual stimulation units. Surgery offers its own set of side effects such as recuperation times that can be weeks long, restrictions due to medical conditions as well as physical requirements for the procedure to take place. Vacuum therapy devices offer immediate results and can be used as many times as necessary without any side effects, and there are no physical requirements or restrictions.

Vacuum therapy devices or ED pumps, can be purchased without a prescription. However, if you get a prescription for the penis pumps, your private insurance or Medicare could possibly cover the expense for you with little to no out of pocket cost. Vacuum therapy devices are considered an FDA approved treatment for ED, therefore their medical necessity must be proved in order for insurance or Medicare to cover the cost. The doctor treating the patient with ED can simply suggest the vacuum therapy device as a means of treating the patient and many times the insurance companies or Medicare will still cover the cost. If you should have any questions about your personal coverage with Medicare or private insurance and vacuum therapy devices, it is best to talk to your insurance provider or Medicare worker.
