Does Bathmate Give Permanent Results?

After using any of the Bathmate hydro pumps, you’ll notice that your penis is significantly bigger for approximately 12 hours after as a result of the increased blood flow into the penile tissues. Occasionally, you can experience a temporary gain of 1 inch in penis length until returning to its normal state – but will these effects eventually become permanent?

Based on my own personal experience, most of the gains I made from using Bathmate pumps weren’t completely permanent. I have been able to maintain some permanent gains in girth and length, but not the majority of what I had originally gained.

I have also received emails from users who have stated that most of their Bathmate gains were not permanent, and that in order to maintain all your gains, you would need to keep using it.

From what I and others have observed, over time the effects of using a Bathmate do increase (especially in girth), and some gains are permanent, but you must use the hydro pump consistently to maintain all of the gains. It’s very similar to working out at the gym – if you suddenly stopped going, sooner or later your gains would diminish.

That said, the lack of total permanent results doesn’t bother me too much. It would definitely be a plus if the gains in penis size were all permanent, but in a way it’s kind of a good thing.

After all, there isn’t any evidence that using a Bathmate causes long-term damage to the penis – but if the effects were permanent, it might be a different story. Knowing that my penis can pretty much go back to normal if need be is somewhat of a comforting thought.

However, you can permanently increase your penis size by using a penis extender, which has been scientifically proven to work. This is when the benefit of using a Bathmate pump really pays off.

For the very best, permanent results, I highly recommend that you combine using a Bathmate pump with a penis extender, and ideally take a male enhancement supplement also. This is what I refer to as the penis enlargement trifecta – targeting length, width, and increased blood flow to the penis all at once – while turbo-charging your results in the process.

Of course, whatever method or methods you choose should always be performed in conjunction with jelqing techniques to help solidify your gains and prevent side-effects like fluid retention and discoloration.

No matter what your current size is, using a Bathmate pump will produce instant, noticeable results. The majority of men will experience gains of about 1-3 inches in length and width, although these results will vary from person to person.

Blood flow is crucial to how the Bathmate works, and if you want to see the greatest gains you will need to improve circulation of the penis. Ensuring permanent penis enlargement with a Bathmate pump can also be achieved by seeing that your penile tissues are healthy, and the cells can quickly replicate.

This is why I recommend taking a male enhancement supplement (aka penis pills) when using a Bathmate pump and/or penis extender, as they are specifically formulated to improve blood flow to the penis. Greater circulation means more oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood reaches all areas of the body – including your penis.

Not only will you see quicker and better results from using the Bathmate, but your erection quality and sexual performance will be greatly improved.

Blood circulation can also be increased by consuming a heart-healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. After all, if you aren’t getting enough quality nutrients, then an increase in blood flow isn’t going to do much to help speed up your progress.

Ensure that you’re getting plenty of amino acids and essential vitamins and minerals. Although these nutrients won’t increase your penis size alone, they can help you to see much better results when using the Bathmate.

How to Use the Bathmate Pump for Permanent Results

Although the Bathmate is a relatively simple device to use, there is a learning curve involved. Make certain that you go over all of the instructions and guidelines at the beginning so you that you’re always practicing safe pumping!

Using the Bathmate in a Bathtub

Using the Bathmate in a bathtub is probably the most ideal way to use the device, although it’s not as convenient as showering for most guys. First, fill up the tub with warm water and get in, allowing a few minutes for your penis and scrotum to become very relaxed. Then, submerge the Bathmate underwater, placing your penis into the chamber and pulling the device to fit snugly against your pubic area.

Slowly begin pumping the Bathmate a few times. While pumping, you’ll notice water from inside the Bathmate being forced out of the pressure release valve at the top of the device, while pressure begins to increase on your penis.

At this point, it’s not necessary to keep the Bathmate under the water any longer. Continue pumping as long as the pressure doesn’t become uncomfortable or until no more water leaves the device.

After that, you can just sit back and enjoy your batch. Since your penis gradually becomes larger in the Bathmate, more water will be able to come out, so every five minutes or so you can give the Bathmate a few more pumps.

If the pressure ever becomes uncomfortable, or when you’re ready to remove the Bathmate, simply press the pressure release valve. The Bathmate should be used for 15 minutes per session, at least 3 times a week, and daily if possible.

Using the Bathmate While Showering

The Bathmate can also be used in the shower if using the tub is not convenient. Always shower with warm water for a few minutes beforehand to relax the blood vessels to your genital area.

While holding the end so no water escapes, fill up the Bathmate chamber completely with warm water. Place your penis into the Bathmate chamber with the pump angled downwards to prevent the water from spilling out.

Bring the device firmly towards your pubic area and pump it a few times. The Bathmate should create a seal against your body, becoming suctioned in place.

After that, you can shower as normal, giving the Bathmate one or two more pumps every 5 minutes. For additional comfort and security, use a Bathmate shower strap.

As stated before, if the pressure becomes uncomfortable or you want to remove the Bathmate, just press the pressure release valve. Perform this routine in 15 minute sessions, at least 3 times a week, but preferably daily.

What Type of Permanent Bathmate Results to Expect

The type of gains you can expect when using a Bathmate pump will depend upon several variables, such as your initial size, genetics, and overall health.

Generally speaking, men with smaller penises and poor erectile function will experience the best results from the Bathmate pumps. However, consistent use of this product is known to increase length by 1-3 inches and generally increases girth by 35%.

The results you get can also depend on the Bathmate model you are using, whether it’s a Hydro, Hydromax, or HydroXtreme. The HydroXtreme models will probably offer the greatest combination of effectiveness and comfort.

And very importantly, you must make certain that you are using a model that is right for your size. If the model you are using is too large or too small, you will only get limited results.
