How can I correct a congenital penis curvature?

Hi, i have had this problem. My penis are bent to the left and i have no pain or stress when i do the self ejaculation. But i am in a big confuse that i can marry or not? Its happen by born. What i do to get rid from it?

 

Greetings,

If your penis has been bent to the left since birth, it is not likely you have Peyronie's disease.  You probably have what we call a congenital penis curvature, or a small variation of your body that makes you different from other men.  

You ask if you should marry.  I do not know the answer to that question.  I also do not know if your penis is bent too much for you to be unable to complete the sex act. 

Keep in mind that when a woman has sufficient sexual stimulation her vaginal muscles will relax greatly, and she will produce a significant amount of lubrication.  As a result she will be able to open her vagina to allow entry of even a bent penis.  In your case, it all depends on how much you are bent and how much she can accommodate to allow entry.  That is something you will not be able to answer until you try.  

You ask how to get rid of your problem.  Many men with a congenital penis curvature have used the "Peyronie's Disease Institute Manual Penis Stretching Method" to reduce their curvature.  Although the method I developed was designed and researched to be used for Peyronies treatment, it apparently also helps me born with a bent penis. Again, you will not know if or how much this will help you until you try.  TRH

Looking for helpful Peyronies treatment information

I am seeking any information I can get that is helpful.

Thank you,

Susan

 

Greetings Susan,

The PDI website is huge.  Men have told me they attempted to print out the whole website, only to stop after 500 pages with still hundreds of pages to go. 

With that kind of information about Peyronies treatment readily available, what more can I offer to you?  A good place I send a lot of people is "How to Start Peyronie's Treatment".     

If you have a specific question perhaps I can answer it.   TRH


Do you suggest SSKI (potassium iodide) as a Peyronies treatment?

Do you suggest using Potassium Iodide (SSKI) as a Peyronies treatment online shows good results from using iodine for scars?


Greetings,

Yes, there is information online about using SSKI (potassium iodide) for treatment of Peyronie’s disease.  That information comes from the website of Jonathan V. Wright, MD of the Tohoma Clinic. He has some interesting things to say about it.  He is an intelligent and provocative author. I like Dr. Wright's work. 

However, concerning the work of PDI, there is a problem with the idea of using SSKI for PD:  Dr. Wright is the only one saying it. 

His concepts and opinions might very well be correct, and SSKI might be the best therapy imaginable for PD.  But I doubt it.  Why?  Because, from what I can determine, there has been absolutely no research or study of SSKI for treatment of PD or DC by anyone at any time.  It is all conjecture and theory, even if it is interesting and might make sense, it is still unfounded at this time.  It is a far more unfounded idea than anything you will find on the PDI website.  

The intent of PDI is not to present all Alternative Medicine therapies for your review simply because they are non-medicinal in nature.  We do not advocate Peyronie's therapies simply because they are “natural” or easy to acquire without a prescription.  Those therapies you find on the PDI website are there because of research (often a lot of it) that supports the use of that particular Alternative  Medicine therapy for PD, in spite of the contradictory research.  We take the position to only use those therapies that have satisfied an adequate percent of researchers to suggest the possibility of therapeutic efficacy.  If taken as a group, in aggressive doses and high combinations, these therapies stand a good chance of creating sufficient synergy to initiate a healing response to correct the Peyronie's plaque. 

SSKI does not fall into that description.  It has not been studied.  When it is studied and receives a positive review from several independent sources we will likely consider adding it to the lineup. 

Keep reading Dr. Wright’s articles, he has a lot of good information for all of us.  TRH

       

Should I continue with the same Peyronies therapy and for how long?

On 4/15/11 I suffered a trauma to my penis during sex, (no black and blue or bleeding), my girl leaned too far back while on top. I went to the urologist 2 days later experiencing pain and a lump at the base. He suggested 4 weeks of abstinence. Unfortunately that didn't work and I searched the internet for some answers. I am 47, of good health, exercise regularly, no health problems. I did the enzyme therapy,Vita-E and C, PABA and applied the Thackers formula every night. It has been 3 months now and no change in the lump at the base. I have an hour glass shape, no bend. The only change was the pain subsided within the first 2 weeks but the lump only changes size when erect it's larger and smaller while flaccid. This has been constant since the beginning. Should I continue with the same Peyronie's therapy and for how long? Please reply with any suggestions.

 

Greetings,

You ask for suggestions:

1. While abstinence might have been wise during the very acute stage of injury, it is poor Peyronie's disease treatment.  I suggest ice and anti-inflammatory measures (essential fatty acids, aspirin, etc) would have served you better.     

2. I do not know what you mean when you say you "did enzyme therapy, Vita-E and C, and PABA."   That does not tell me enough; you need to provide dosage, frequency or timing for how how you used them.  That makes a tremendous difference for the possibility of success.  Just popping pills in hopes that something works is usually not helpful and it is definitely not the way PDI suggests anyone conducts good therapy.  I cannot comment on the kind of treatment plan that you followed without knowing more about it.  I suggest you provide more information.

3.  Further, it appears that while you got your idea for using vitamin, E, vitamin C and PABA from the PDI website but you did not get your therapy products from PDI.  This is often a mistake since you have no assurance about the quality of those products or how to use them.  People who visit the PDI website for a few ideas and then experiment on their own with only partial compliance to our ideas, usually earn partial results.  I suggest you made a big mistake by deciding to experiment when you should have been actively treating yourself with known products of high quality.

4.  When you say their is no change in the lump at the base of your penis, what do you mean?  What is the current size, shape, density and surface features of that lump?  If you do not know the specific answer to those questions, I suggest you are only guessing if your lump has or has not changed.     

5.  You say since the time of your injury the lump changes size when erect compared to being flaccid, but you also say you were not black and blue as a result of the initial injury. This seems to be contradictory. Since I am not able to verify this information, I would suggest that you might be mistaken on this point. 

6.  You ask if you should continue your therapy and for how long.  You did not tell me enough about your therapy or your lump so that I can answer that question. Please provide those details.

7.  Based on the information you provided, you "did enzyme therapy, Vita-E and C, and PABA." for about two months.  That is a short time for whatever you did.  I suggest you are being too hasty judging the effectiveness of care.  This tissue is often slow to respond.

8.  I suggest you might not have Peyronie's disease at this time; you might be on your way toward it but you might not have it at this time. You notice I used the word "might" three times in that last sentence.  This is because I am unsure since your injury happened less than four months ago, and you did not present your story in a way that is typical of Peyronie's disease. My guess is that you are still in the acute stages of a soft tissue injury and that you should consider doing more to reduce the active inflammation at this time.

9.  My last suggestion is the most important:  Learn more about the correct Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronie's disease by spending more time reading about it in the PDI website.

Good luck to you.  TRH

Does this mean I have Peyronies?

In previous questions someone asked below "how do I find my PD scar?"

In your answer you stated: "…….it is important to know your scar is not located on the surface; it is located below the surface and cannot be seen……"

I have been informed that I have Peyronie's disease, however my erections are 100% straight.  They are just less flexible and half the top surface of my penis feels very hard, because of the scar tissue.  When my penis is flaccid and erect I can easily always see the scar tissue.

Does this mean I have peyronies, also does this mean the scar tissue is just below the external skin and not on the actual erectile tissue? Is this possible? I have spoken to you previously but I am not sure if I mentioned this.

 

Greetings,

If you have been medically diagnosed with Peyronie's disease, what you say does not give me reason to doubt that diagnosis.  

After reading your entire question several times I am unsure what you mean when you say "I can easily always see the scar."   If I were to try to hide a ball under the blanket on my bed, it would still be "seen" because of the way the ball would push up and distort and wrinkle the blanket.  I would not be able to see the ball directly, only able to see the effects of the ball on the blanket that is above it.  Is this what you mean when you say you can see your PD scar?

By definition the Peyronie's plaque or scar is not located on the top surface of the skin.  It is located within the layer of tissue called the tunica albuginea that is located well below the surface of the skin, by many millimeters.     The tunica albuginea is sitting right on top of and is in contact with the actual erectile tissue, making it anatomically impossible to directly see the Peyronie's scar.  

I have communicated with many men whose PD scars are so thick and dense that they distort the skin above, and thus they can see the outline of scar that lies below.  TRH

Does DMSO cause infertility?

Does DMSO have any long term side effects i.e does it affect fertility in any way?

 

Greetings,

There are no reports or studies that connect the use of DMSO and infertility in humans whether related to Peyronie's treatment or other health problems.  There are reports of veterinary medicine using DMSO to treat infertility in horses and dogs related to fibrosis of tissues that are a part of the reproductive system.   TRH

Question about prostate surgery and Peyronie’s disease

After having an open transvesical prostatectomy on Jan. 2011 my husband, 62 years old got Peyronie's disease.  We would like to know if he can take PABA and what is the best plan treatment for him considering the fact that he suffers from essential hypertension, has two stents, smoker, and is taking daily:atenolol 100mg, disothiazide 25mg, simvastatin 40mg, acetylsalicylic acid 100mg,perphenan 4mg.

Thanks for your help.

Rachel and Benny


Greetings folks,

It is not uncommon to develop Peyronie's disease after prostate surgery.  You an read some of these ideas in my post, "Possible Peyronies Cause: Catheter and Cystoscope Trauma."

Considering your husband's medical history and the amount of drugs he is now taking, I suggest that  you tell his treating doctor you would like to try a combination Alternative Medicine nutritional approach to see if he agrees with doing a few things to increase his immune response.  Many MDs are open minded in this way, and perhaps you will get cooperation from your husband's doctor.  Personally, I see no reason to think that PABA and a few other therapies would be a problem; but first get the doctor's approval.  TRH     

What is the difference between DMSO in gel and liquid form?

Online the PDI site says your DMSO LIQUID is more effective than the GEL. I fear the topicals I use won't penetrate as deeply if i were to use the liquid? How is effectiveness different?  Thank you.

Greetings,

Both the gel and liquid format are effective in their own way, depending on what you want to accomplish. Read DMSO in Peyronie's Therapy.

We have determined that the DMSO liquid penetrates faster than the gel, but not only a little faster.   And we have determined that the DMSO gel penetrates deeper and carries more therapy agents with it.  For this important reason in 2009 PDI converted both the Dusa Sal DMSO (Dupuytren contracture) and PMD DMSO (Peyronie's disease) products to being made with a gel base.  It makes sense to sacrifice a little speed of penetration to gain depth and amount of therapy delivered to the tissue involved.   TRH

What are the exercises to make the penis straight?

hi

i want to know what are the exercises to make the penis straight.  i have a curve about 40 degree in my penis.  i am not sure that i have Peyronies disease…thanks a lot

Greetings,

First things first.  You should have your curvature examined by a doctor and your condition diagnosed so you know what you are dealing with. That is important, so please do it.

I think you are a bit confused about your exercise question.  I am not aware of any exercise that can be done to reverse the bent penis of Peyronie's disease. 

PDI has two different educational CDs, an exercise video and a stretching video. The exercise CD is called PDI Massage and Exercise CD; it explains how to increase energy and increase blood and lymphatic flow in the lower pelvis.  The stretching CD is called  Peyronie's Disease Institute Manual Penis Stretching Method©; it explains how you can lengthen the contracted tissue of the penis and so straighten it.   TRH    


What is the success rate of PDI Peyronies treatment approach?

I am curious, what is the success rate of your Peyronies treatment approach? John from Australia

Greetings John,

You ask about PDI Peyronie's disease treatment results. All day long I send emails to men from around the world – like yourself – who do not have to report back to me, and over whom I have no control as to how, if, and when they use their various therapies.

I can only tell you this directly about the treatment results I have heard about from men over the years: I receive about 12-15 emails or telephone conversations reporting improvement in scar size, shape or density, or favorable change in penis curvature, or improvement of sexual function, for every one email or telephone call I receive complaining of no progress concerning the above. Considering that people tend to complain more than they compliment, I interpret this 12:1 ratio in a very favorable way.  But to give you percentages of natural Peyronies treatment improvement, I cannot report that to you at this time. Perhaps some time in the future when we are able to do formal research.

PDI is not yet conducting controlled studies, so I have no way of knowing how any of this is being used. And of course how these products are used determines the results that are earned. I get back bits and pieces of information from men about their treatment results. My feedback is limited in response to the large amount of information I put out to the PD community.

There is no guarantee that you or anyone else will use any of these products as I suggest that you use them. Actually, after doing this work since 2002 I find that few people start out using their Peyronie's treatment plan in the correct way.  You know how people can be. I can only hope that the suggestions I make are given fair consideration and application is made in the correct way. As a result, I do not receive with any regularity reports from men about their treatment results.

All I can tell you is that the more that a person does to knock that scar out of the tissue, the greater the synergistic effect and the greater the likelihood for success. You either understand the concept of synergy or you don’t. It is the reason that MDs have so much trouble with patients when they start putting them on more than one drug – when combined, the synergistic effect of multiple drugs begins to magnify, often causing drug reactions that most people have come to be concerned about. In the area of Alternative Medicine the results tend to be beneficial.

I notice from your records that you have only ordered Scar-X from PDI, and nothing else to treat your PD.   It is a good product we have used with success over many years. However, since you order only Scar-X you are using this product in a way it is not intended to be used.   You are a good example of what I mentioned earlier.  You are not following the suggestions of PDI and yet you will judge PDI results after not following our suggestions.   It is your decision; I can only advise you along the way and you will decide how you wish to proceed.  TRH
