I'm in week 5 following the VED protocol with my 3 tube VED and I was wondering if anyone else has the turtling problem. When I use the VED I extend to about 2/3 to 3/4 the length of the tube. I'm experiencing quite a bit of turtling throughout the day. I wasn't having this sensation near as much before I started the protocol. I'm wondering if the tissue at the base of my unit is getting more elastic but the rest of it is not. Is this normal for the process? I'm not really seeing any type of result yet other than this situation. Is this expected, or something I should be concerned about? Any thoughts would help.

Yes I had pretty severe turtling after my brief VED sessions. A new acute phase began and I developed further deformity. New sore spot/scar opposite CC chamber. I would advise you to be extremely cautious.

Don't overpump. Penis might react with retraction to perceived trauma.
Always start with low intensity, slowly increasing the vacuum and also releasing the vacuum slowly.
