Today is my 37th day using the VED, and I'm feeling very discouraged after there being no change so far.

My routine:

I do 5 sets of 5 pumps, holding for 10 seconds then waiting for 10 seconds before my next set.

Then I do 5 sets of 5 pumps, holding for 5 seconds, then increasing by one more pump, holding for 10 seconds then waiting for 10 seconds before my next set.

I do this until I'm pumping 5 times, holding for 5 seconds, then pumping 5 more times. This gets me to around 80% erection and I can sometimes feel some definite sensation in one, but not all of my plaques. I dare not pump any further than this.

I do 15-20 sets in total.

Sometimes my foreskin never rolls back, sometimes it does. When it does, it feels tight. I'm not sure if I should be keeping my foreskin back before I even start VED or what.

I can't use the A chamber as I basically completely fill it within a few sets and I don't feel it's doing anything once I've created a "seal" at the top with my glans.

Unfortunately in this time, the only improvement I've seen is in night time pain, which I can't put down to being purely the VED - I am nearly 10 months into this god foresaken disease and it could just be the pain starting to resolve on its own.

  • Should I be pulling my foreskin back before starting the session?
  • At what point can I reasonably expect to see some effects from this, even minor?
  • How is it possible that 10-15 minutes per day is somehow effective with VED, yet traction devices must be worn for hours on end?
  • What happens when I get to 6 months and there's still zero improvement? Do I stop, or do I carry on?

Thanks 🙂[/list]

first of all im not a doctor, ill just talk from my experience of using VED of 1.5 years.
as i mentioned many times in other posts, i managed to see great results with VED, but i also injured myself.
Personally i was doing 25 sec holds, ten times, 2 a week (more or less).

I saw improvements in erection quality, lenght, hardness, pleasure, curvature.
I injured myself without even noticing: i did not feel pain and i did not pump to extreme erection. It just happened and i started feeling pain when my penis was flaccid.
So, my suggestion is to keep your faith and dont over do it. If you really feel like nothing is changing maybe do 1 sec more hold. But dont drammatically increase how much you are stretching your penis. You could go from no effect to negative effect without realizing it.
Also, VED is meant to work over the span of months, so it's not supposed to make huge changes in just one month (from my understanding, im not a doctor)
