Wearing times/breaks of the device
« on: January 19, 2015, 05:09:35 PM »

Andropenis support told me you can split times of hours of use but you must be atleast wearing it 2 hours each session? Is this true?

I found that goal to be unrealistic in most cases. I would assume they're trying to tell you, that you should take a break after every two hours IF you make it that far. I'm doing traction now with the very same device. I'm about to take my first break after one hour. (The pain is hurting me too much).

I tend to wear it in hour blocks, like 4-6 sessions of an hour in length. I've had great success with traction so hour long sessions have been effective for me at least.

Thanks guys. I think they just say these things because its how their data was collected by following those variables. I will do it in 1 hour sessions too. Voltage did you do like an adaption period where you reduce the size of it to get use to the device?

You also need to take a break minimum after 2 hours for 15-20 minutes.

Willis must you wear it in 2 hour intervals though? Anything wrong with 1 hour?

Steve

What LWillisjr is saying is not to ware it more than 2 hours continuously without a break of 15-20 minutes.
You can make any session length bellow 2 hours.

@Steve;

Yeah, I did the adaption period. I've quit for a few months after a VED accident. I've reached my erection length with the extension rods, so things are pretty tight. I actually wear three comfort bands (for pain relief) and tie two rubber bands across the head piece (reinforcing the silicon bands), in order to keep my penis from slipping out.

God is that really needed? I mean surely once comfort band should be good enough? Do most people find this pretty difficult?

I'm not so sure many people on here would recommend AndroPenis. Personally, I'm interested in learning about the vac head attachments. They say they're very comfortable. More than anything, it's worn on my emotional health.

Well Andropenis was recommended by my surgeon (stage technique). I don't think he knows too much about them though just that some of his clients have used it and got gains. Can i not get a vaccum device for my andropenis extender? They all look the same to me.
What exactly is bad about Andropenis though? Is it just that there is no vaccum device attachment or something?

It simply doesn't seem like the popular brand around here. Those who've gone traction typically get fastsize or x4labs. I can attest that the andropenis certainly does work, it just hurts. And perhaps I'm not being very helpful to you, due to my emotional stress on the matter. Give it an honest try and if you find its too uncomfortable to continue, I would suggest looking into vac head extensions or other name brands that utilize different pieces. I'm currently in the process of that now. Sorry to dissuade you. I know this is all new to you and unfortunately a hard burden to bare.
