Atherosclerosis, a condition in which fatty deposits build up inside arteries, may restrict blood flow to the penis and cause erection difficulties. "The small blood vessels that go to the penis can become diseased much earlier than the [larger] vessels that go to the heart," Karen Boyle, MD, a urologist at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, tells WebMD. "In younger or younger middle-aged men, ED is often the first sign of atherosclerosis."
Male enhancement pills are pills that claim to enhance pleasure in sex, penis or erection size, or stamina in men. The only pills that are proven to have a positive effect are prescription medicines for erectile dysfunction (like Viagra, Sildenafil, Cialis, Spedra and Levitra) or natural supplements (like yohimbine). Pills advertised online are often illegal, unregulated, and potentially dangerous.

Many doctors question whether the benefits of lengthening surgery outweigh the risks. A 2006 study found that only 35% of men were satisfied with the outcome of surgery, which added only half an inch, on average, to length. Men who are overly preoccupied with penis length tend to have unrealistic expectations of surgery and should seek counseling instead, the authors wrote.
Is it effective? Yes and no. With a penis pump, your penis really does grow – noticeably so. However as soon as you release the vacuum, your penis goes right back to original size. There’s no evidence of long-term benefits, but they do have one advantage for sufferers of erectile dysfunction: since the vacuum draws blood into the penis, you can quickly roll on a gently constricting cockring after removing the pump, thereby ‘trapping’ the penis in an erect state. While some people who have tried this technique report positive findings, we suggest consulting a doctor first.
Commonly called a "penis pump", a vacuum erection device, or VED, creates negative pressure that expands and thereby draws blood into the penis. Medically approved VEDs, which treat erectile dysfunction, limit maximum pressure, whereas the pumps commonly bought by consumers seeking penis enlargement can reach dangerous pressure, damaging penis tissue. To retain tumescence after breaking the device's airtight seal, one must constrict the penis' base, but constriction worn over 30 minutes can permanently damage the penis and cause erectile dysfunction. Although vacuum therapy can treat erectile dysfunction sufficiently to prevent penis deterioration and shrinkage, clinical trials have not found it effective for penis enlargement.
