I have been doing the newbie routine for about 2-3 months, perhaps with more rest days than I really should have had.
I have recently started using a generic pump without a gauge for about 10 minutes on alternate days and have ordered myself a pump with a gauge only today, allowing me to track pressure a bit better (from what I hear I should aim for 3-4 mm Hg).
My question is this; with the generic pump, I was seeing a good increase in size (girth and length) while I am inside the pump; however as soon as the pressure is released; this soon comes back to normal size (sometimes not even fully erect anymore). Is this possibly a negative PI?
The reason I ask is because in various places in the forum there is a mention of the pump ‘staying’ for a few hours to begin and then sometimes lasting days at a time.
Also is it worth using a cock ring straight after coming the out of the pump to keep the pump for slightly longer?
