Curved penis of Peyronie’s disease

Curved penis and other reasons to hate Peyronie’s disease

The curved penis of Peyronie’s disease is the most obvious thing about PD.  Because of it, a man’s life changes. Suddenly his normally straight penis is bent, painful, possibly smaller, and difficult to use during sex.

In spite of this, the most important thing about Peyronie’s disease is the internal scar tissue.  Without that internal scar, there would be no  curved penis, weak erections, pain or lost size.  Even so, the PD scar receives little attention.  Perhaps this is because it is located below the skin surface, and is often difficult to locate.

Certainly, what men hate most about Peyronie’s disease is the curved penis.  They seldom think about the scar that causes the curve.  Remember, “Peyronie’s disease is all about the scar.”

About the Peyronie’s disease scar

Healthy penis tissue is flexible and can expand.  During an erection, this elastic tissue traps blood causing the penis to stretch and enlarge.  As a result, the penis becomes longer and thicker, producing an erection.  The erection is usually straight because the tissue enlarges in all directions, evenly.

In Peyronie’s disease, dense and inelastic fibrous scar tissue replaces some of the elastic tissue.  The fibrous scar prevents normal expansion in that part of the penis where it is located.  Limited expansion results in a curved penis.

Peyronie’s disease often starts after a penis injury, even chemical irritation.  For reasons yet unknown, an injured penis sometimes makes more scar than necessary. This extra scar tissue appears as small bumps below the surface of the penis.  After many months, these small bumps change into a scar.  The scar can be different sizes, shapes and hardness. Some scars become as long as the penis.  Other times, they circle the shaft like a belt.  Depending on their number and location, they change the erection in different ways.

It is impossible to find PD scars if they are flat, or their edges are thin and vague. They can be located in places that make them impossible to find.  When the scar or plaque is difficult to find, assume it exists if a previously straight erection becomes bent.

“Bent nail disease”

Anyone with PD focuses on the obvious, the Peyronie’s curved penis. It gets everyone’s attention, for sure.  Besides looking strange, a large bend in the penis can prevent sexual intercourse.  This gets PD even more attention, for sure.

Peyronie’s curved penis and sexual intercourse

The curved penis of Peyronie's disease can break a marriage because it prevents sexual acitivity in 25-30% of cases. Perhaps 75-90% of couples who deal with Peyronie’s disease have some problem with sexual intercourse.

Penetration can be next to impossible. Severe penis distortions can look like a “cork screw” or “cane handle.”  The scar is a weak area that can suddenly buckle during intercourse.  Known as a “penis fracture,” it can be very painful. This often leads to more scar formation, worse PD, and greater limits to sexual activity.

Erectile dysfunction (ED), a partial filling with blood, can also develop in Peyronie’s disease. This reduced blood filling makes the normally rigid erection weak.  This presents additional difficulty for the sexual act.

In addition, the penis often becomes shorter and thinner in Peyronie’s disease. Once again, this is due to the fibrous tissue pulling from the inside.  Shame and embarrassment about the appearance of the penis are common, causing more ED.

A rare Peyronie’s couple does not experience sexual difficulty because of what Peyronie’s disease does to the penis – and mind.

It is difficult to deal with sex problems when a curved penis gets in the way.  Many complex physical and emotional issues surface for the couple who struggle with Peyronie’s disease.  If this sounds familiar, click on “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.”  This book offers important ideas and sex techniques.

Curved penis treatment

The curved penis is not the real problem of Peyronie’s disease. However, a suddenly curved penis is difficult to ignore. You can hate your PD for all the right reasons, but to get rid of PD you must remove the scar.  Without an internal scar, there is no curved penis and no Peyronie’s disease.

Start your Peyronie’s disease natural treatment here.  When you treat your PD, you must know about the scar.  You must know the exact size, shape, density and surface qualities of the scar to know if your Alternative Medicine treatment is effective. These things are used as a guide that tells you if your treatment is working.

    Great respect to this site. Since I began learning about Peyronie’s disease I have looked back at my own life and realized just how confusing it can be when one first learns of the condition – for instance, and as pointed out clearly, many of us do have a quite natural bend in the penis. I never realized just how distressing it must be for people until I l looked closely into this site. I do thank you for the clarity of the information about Peyronie’s disease.

    I’ve had Peyronie’s disease for many years. I have had verapamil injections vitamin E pita a, nothing seems to release the plaque. Any suggestions? I’m still sexually active 60 yrs old. My penis has gotten shorter because of this. Is there any help out there for Peyronie’s disease?

    Greetings Jimmie,

    Please spend just a little time reading the information we have about Alt Med Peyronie’s disease treatment on this website. You will learn there is a lot you can do to help yourself.

    Our interest in self=treatment is based on the fact that up to 50% of cases of Peyronie’s disease are self-limiting (the person heals his PD through the natural ability of the body’s immune system). This website is devoted to the study of how this process can be encouraged with Alt Med.

    About half of the men who get Peyronie’s disease get better on their own simply by the body correcting the problem by the natural ability of the body tself. Our goal is to provide those vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and a few other things that medical science has suggested could help Peyronie’s disease. After doing this work for over 15 years we have a treatment protocol that is rather specific and tested by many thousands of men. We have found that by combining a number of these Alt Med therapies our men report back 8-10 successes (from moderate to great) for every one failure. That is a pretty nice rate of success for a problem that is so difficult to treat. Our work with Peyronie’s disease (and Dupuytren’s contracture, a related problem) is still in the early stages. With continued feedback from men like you perhaps we will see even higher rates of success, and come to understand natural Peyronie’s disease treatment even better.

    I suggest you look over the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website and learn more about helping your body heal better. If you have any questions, please contact me directly. TRH
