When I started pumping in late February, it took me about 10 minutes on average to pump up a good erection.  Part of this was inexperience/fear of hurting myself and part was no doubt due to the fact that I had not been erect in about 3 months.
 
Now, in additoin to my injection therapy, I pump pretty much every day.  Seems that I can pump up in 2 or 3 minutes usually, unless for some reason the vacuum seal is not good.
 
Has anyone else experienced this?  Does it mean anything other than that maybe I know more about what I am doing....lol?
