Water Vacuum Pumps
I have PD and am investigating devices to try and help my condition. Before I ask my question, I'd just like to thank you for your site. PD is a very scary phenomenon, especially when, like me, you have never heard of it before. To have so much firsthand experience and helpful, honest information in one place is a real comfort.
And so I write to see if you have any experience of, or know anything about, water vacuum pumps, like the Penomet?
I see the logic in their proposition, but I can't find much objective info anywhere on this type of pump.
I'm torn between trying pump or a traction device. I think if this Penomet was a real thing and worked as well as a vacuum pump I might try it. I like the idea of a traction device but the long hours seem quite a challenge.
I think I'm lucky because my PD has settled down now, and I only have a mild upwards bend towards the tip. I have lost some length, though... I don't know why I added that extra info in there! He he.
Any thoughts you may have would be gratefully received.
Thanks so much for your time,
My Peyronie's Answer
Thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot to me.
If you Peyronie’s has settled down, you have most likely reached the stable phase of the disease. Your condition should not be getting worse which good news as your condition is relatively mild.
However, you may still want to improve your condition and traction could help you with that. There are no guarantees where Peyronie’s is concerned but traction has worked very well for many men to help them reduce curvature. And traction will definitely lengthen the penis, it’s just how traction works (think of the long-necked women in Burma). This article contains overview and links to the most important traction articles on my website.
While this article addresses your question about going for traction device or penis pump. In short, if trying to correct curvature then traction device is better but pump is better for addressing erection quality.
However, in your case, your curvature is mild so you might still want to consider penis pumps, because as you say, traction devices do require more time commitment.
If you want to explore traction devices also, then I recommend checking out Phallosan as it kind of combines the traction and vacuum technology. And as you can wear it while sleeping, it’s less cumbersome experience than wearing more traditional penis devices, like Andropeyronie.
I hope this is of some help and I wish you all the best with your treatment.
