What Are the Side Effects of Vacuum Constriction Devices?
Vacuum constriction devices are the safest of the available options for those suffering from ED. This device is for external use and can be used by patients that are experiencing ED caused by many different conditions. Vacuum therapy devices do not involve the use of any medication and are non-invasive.
The only possible side effect of these could be as follows.
The penis could turn purplish in colour and can also be cold or numb for the time being.
The use of the constriction ring may cause irritation. The constriction rings for ED can be worn for up to 30 minutes safely to allow for intercourse.
You might see a black and blue mark or a small bruised area on the shaft of the penis. However, this usually is painless and goes away in a few days.
You might feel a decrease in the force of ejaculation. The constriction band traps the semen during the time of orgasm. Although not dangerous or painful, the semen will dribble out once you remove the constriction band. This does not interfere with the climax in general.
These are some of the negligible side effects of the device. Several studies suggest that around 50%-80% of men have been satisfied with the results of vacuum therapy. For more information on the use of this device check out our previous posts.
