Pump side effects

Pump side effects

Hey guys. Just wanted to know if anyone has experienced some problem areas with pumping. I’m one of the senior members here…57 years young. I had a problem jelqing as my erectile quality at this age is extremely low. Avocet 8 gave me some suggestions albeit use the pump to get somewhat erect and then do the jelqing..off and on switching from pumping to jelqing, etc. I did buy a pump..not a cheap one and followed avocet’s advice. I’m not overdoing it as I once did in my younger years, but some of the old issues I dealt with are returning. I find urination somewhat difficult after a session, albeit not immediately after. I get the feeling of not being able to fully void. I find I get up at least three times a night to go. If I stretch the flaccid penis and then back off while urinating, it helps to alleviate the urination difficulty. Could the urethra be agitated as a result of the pumping? Also I’ve experienced a lot of discoloration just below the head. I think a certain amount of heat builds up in the tube as you hold the pressure for a while. I’m wondering if that contributes to the discoloration. My girlfriend has noticed this and thinks something is wrong with me. She’s not privy to my P.E. activities at the moment..I really don’t want to tell her as I feel somewhat embarrassed. Has anyone had experience with the pumps that have water in them. I wonder if this helps to keep the discoloration to a minimum. Feedback welcome.

I’ve had some discoloration but I just take it as an unavoidable side effect and I’m not really sure if it is related with heat inside the tube. I think it has more to do with the expansion/stretching of the skin for a period of time. As far as peeing, my only problem is that the tip of my glans gets swollen so peeing for a while after pumping makes me shoot pee everywhere outside the crapper and sometimes I get that feeling of not getting everything out.

First, I recommend the thread Vacuum Pumping when you have ED; the short version, according to Avocet8 to you.

What is your current routine?

Discoloration is not inevitable with pumping. I have done water pumping, but I couldn’t say that you are any more or less likely to get discoloration from water pumping.

Thanks for the feedback. It seems from other posts discoloration is somewhat of a common problem not isolated to pumping. If I lay off for a week or so it seems to go away somewhat, but if the light hits it just right it’s fairly pronounced. As far as my routine..right now I’m off it but when I was on I was pumping and holding the pressure for about 5 minutes then jelqing for around ten or so, then repeating the process about 4 times. I also did warm up and manual stretches at the up down and side positions before pumping. After a session the penis looks impressive from what it normally is but then if I take a break for a couple of days it goes back to it’s normal size with maybe a little more flaccid length.

I wonder if it’s the jelking that is causing the discoloration because if I remember correctly, you were doing low pressure pumping. Right?

How many jelk strokes occur during 10 minutes for you? I never did jelking by the clock; rather I counted strokes. 100 at a time, no more, then pump again. During an average pump session, I’d get off about 400 strokes total. Never got any discoloration that way. Or are you one of those very heavy-handed squeezer guys? :)

What Lampwick suggested. That method of pumping does help with the ED aspect.

I’ve actually been using one of those jelqing devices that are really glorified canning tongs. I find it very difficult to do the hand style. I’ve seen the videos and studied the technique but the canning tongs seem to work better for me. Maybe there’s too much pressure from them? They don’t feel that bad but I can back off a bit and see how it goes. Also as far as low pressure pumping you are correct I stay between 5 and 10 Hg’s.

More than 5 inHg is not low vacuum. Between 5 and 10 inHg is definitely not low vacuum.

Thanks for the input. I noticed however anything less than 5 Hg’s will not give me anything more that 50 % erectile condition with no vacuum leaks. My E.D. has deteriorated to the point where I can no longer maintain an erection after pumping. As soon as the pressure is released the penis goes flaccid again as opposed to years ago when I pumped and got erect in the tube. Then after releasing the vacuum the erection could be sustained. Unfortunately at 57 I don’t have that luxury anymore.

I went to a urologist 2 years ago and discussed my E.D. with him. He said at my age what is happening is that the tissue in the penis loses it’s elasticity as we age and is no longer able to trap and maintain the blood. His answer..Viagra. At $15.00 a pop and with the amount of sex I have with my girlfriend this has proven to be a big expense. It’s not so much the money that bothers me although I think these assholes at Pfizer are filthy rich on our backs, it’s the feeling that I may someday may not be able to perform at all unless I have this stuff to help me. I dread living there. You can take away a lot of things from a man, but when he loses the wood he loses self confidence and to a degree some self image. I never I’m my wildest dreams though I would be facing this. I heard others talk about it but it didn’t hit me until around 53 or so. Now I know what they’re talking about.

rrunner69, some do pump at 5 inHG and beyond and are fine with it, and I’m not suggesting that you don’t do it. I just wanted to make it clear that 5 inHG and up is not low vacuum.

If I remember correctly, a lot of guys come out of the tube with no more than a semi; it’s not something that is ED linked; rather, I think it depends on one’s arousal level.

Thanks for the input guys. Interesting that you would mention most guys are semi after pumping. That’s a little more encouraging. I do recall in my younger years being able to maintain the erection once the pressure was released. I suppose if I was watching some decent chick getting slammed by Shanne Diesel there would be some arousal there, but absent of that it’s not happening.

I generally do not exit the tube with more than a semi.

I did a little searching on related threads. You might find them of interest. Note that some of them are not recent, and thoughts on the subject have changed in the past several years. It used to be that the conventional wisdom was that you had to go into the cylinder with an erection and maintain it for the duration of your session. That is is a point of view that is not held universally today. Higher vacuum levels used to be more common in the past than today, as well.

Thanks guys. I’ll be away for the weekend with the wench, but will be sure to check out all the threads Monday. Sparkyx…thanks for the info. on Phygeum. Actually I’ve heard of it but never tried it. I’ll get some next week. Later, rrunner69
