Who is sexually active every day??? Cycling every second day is fine I suppose.



Exactly... that's why you have other options. :)

The simple truth of the matter is that we are all limited by the natural physical dimensions of our penis and no device is going to make your penis longer than that, period. Any length "gain" from pre-op is likely the result of regaining some that was previously lost or the implant having the ability to push or stretch your penis beyond where you could ever get with natural blood flow.

As for gains over time from initial post op, I think there are so many factors such as device break in period, post op pain and swelling limitations and just getting better using it and the body accepting it over time. Ultimately either device properly installed and sized is going to push/stretch our penis to its physical limit but no more.

I am just over two weeks implanted by Dr Eid so I'm very early in the process. I'm leaning towards continuing to cycle twice daily into the indefinite future and assess how things go over time. That approach may or may not change. Your journal has been a great source of information for me, thank you!

As I mentioned above, I very rarely inflate mine and have seen no reduction in length or girth in 11 years.

I finally got time to contact Dr. Eid regarding how long we can go without cycling our implants (assuming we are past our necessary post-op healing).

I opted to email him instead of calling, just to give him flexibility. Just waiting for a response now. I will post when I have it.

Yeah... I really don't know what to say... the Dr's say use it or lose it, guys who have not cycled have lost length and girth but are kind of a modern day miracle... :)

I am going to hazard the guess that having an implant (which, not being living tissue does not have the capacity to grow longer or shorter as organic tissues do) would limit the amount of shrinkage.
