Patient: Have ED several yrs, Viagra or Levitra losing effect. Researching Vacurect. Concerned that restricting circulation can cause coldness, discoloration, hematoma, plus. Is using the Vacurect a viable alternative? Thanks jerry
Doctor: Vacurect, a vacuum erection device, is generally safe but sometimes bruising, pain, coldness, hematoma etc. may occur. U sing the correct size of tension ring is critical in obtaining the best possible result. If the ring is too tight, it can be uncomfortable and if too large a ring is used, the erection may not last. Also the tension ring should not be left in place longer than 30 minutes. Thus It could be a safe alternative if used correctly with proper selection of the tension rings and cylinder size, use of adequate lubrication, adequate practice with the device, and proper technique.
