GAINSWave #1 and #2 were on Monday, June 3rd and Tuesday, June 4th. I didn’t expect to see anything for a while, but already, I have noticed two surprising things.
When I was in high school, sometime after my 16th birthday, I began to drive my sister to our school each day. I drove my dad’s old Firebird, a forest green V8 sports car with tons of power. Often on the way to school, from the vibrations of the sports car and the road, I would get an erection. Those spontaneous erections didn’t happen much after my teenage years. Yesterday driving to the airport with my partner, I began to get hard from the vibrations of the car and road and my penis rubbing against my underwear. It was surprising and unusual.
I’ve also noticed one other difference. In the past, since I began to experience ED, once I lost an erection, it was almost impossible to get it back. The past two days masturbating to porn with my partner, I experienced multiple cycles of losing my erection and getting it back again, fully hard. This was wonderful and surprising. One of the significant emotional and mental brain fucks of ED is losing an erection and being unable to get it back. It is totally deflating emotionally. But these last two days being able to get hard again after going soft has been really lovely.
I did take a 10 mg Tadalafil (generic Cialis) on Wednesday. Some of my erection is due to the remaining effect of the Tadalafil. I’ve also been using a penis pump, as prescribed by my GainsWave doctor. He wants me to use the pump twice a day for 10 minutes each time. Each time I use it, I cycle through pumping my penis hard, holding is for 10-20 seconds, and then releasing the vacuum. I do this maybe 15-25 times over 10 minutes.
