I am 19 years old and I need your help with a curved penis after rough masturbation

From the time when I was 11, I used to masturbate, and several times after masturbation, I pulled my penis so hard that I heard a kind of sound from end of my penis.

Another bad habit I had was the wrong way of masturbation. I used to bring my legs closed to each other and then moving or inserting the erected penis between the two legs. After a short time I saw that my penis is curved, narrowing form its end where a kind of line like rupture and weakness is seen.

Now when I get erection, I lose it and get back soon, it can’t stand erect which makes me unable to achieve penetration. Although, I have erection, but it can not be maintained.  While having intercourse it curves down from its end I mean the place where it is weak and narrowing. And also I think I ejaculate very quickly.

What should I do? I need your help!

In our area we don’t have experienced doctors, so please help me. Now I am 19 years old, the age when I lost self-confidence and seeking for help.  I need your help, Please! Help me !!!!!!!!!

I am looking forward to hearing from you.



Yes, you do need help.  You need more help than I can offer here to sort out what has happened to you over the years due to your rough masturbation practices.  It is fairly common for Peyronie’s disease and masturbation to be related to each other simply due to repeated injury. 

In your case, the first thing you need to do is to get a complete urological examination even if you have to go outside your area, so you and I can both be certain you have Peyronies.   If you have not told your parents, or an adult in your family, about your problem you should do so now if you can do so comfortably and without concern for reprisal.

If you feel embarrassed talking to a family member about what is going on with you, then simply tell them, “I have pain in my private parts and I do not know why.”  That story will protect your privacy, make you feel comfortable that you are not saying more than you want to say, yet it will also let an adult know you re in trouble and need medical care.   If that adult wants to go into the exam room just tell them that you feel embarrassed and that you would prefer to go in alone. Once you get to the doctors office you can get a lot more specific and accurate so the doctor will know what to do with you.

There are very strict HIPPA laws in place today that will protect your privacy as an adult. This way no one from the family needs to know what is going on, but you can get the diagnosis you need.

You may or may not have Peyronie’s disease.  I cannot tell you what is going on from the limited information you provided.

If it turns out that you do have Peyronie’s disease you must keep in mind that many boys and men have made the same mistake you have made by masturbating too aggressively; you are not alone in this problem.  You need to learn how to achieve orgasm while using gentle and pleasant self stimulation. If you need help along this line, please let me know and I will guide you to appropriate resources.

Let me know how it goes for you.  If your parents want to use Alternative Medicine to treat your problem, contact me again and we can work together.  TRH

My husband has a curved penis, is this normal?

 Bent penis usually means Peyronie’s disease later in life

A curved penis can be normal for some men, or it can indicate the presence of a problem for other men.  Just because the penis is curved does not necessarily mean there is a problem.

For the most part, the fact that penile curvature exists at all in a man does not indicate a true abnormality or reason for concern; an abnormality is more so suggested if there is a change in the appearance and structure of the penis if it was previously straighter than it is now and only later became curved.

If a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease has already been made to explain the bent penis you are asking about, you should consider using Alternative Medicine treatment to assist and support the body’s natural ability to heal and repair the Peyronie’s plaque that causes the curved penis and the various signs and symptoms that are a result.  Click here to find a good place to start learning about non-surgical and non-drug Peyronie’s treatment.

When did the bent penis begin?

Usually the answer to the question, “When did the curved or bent penis begin?” will usually indicate if there is an actual problem to justify concern.

If your husband’s penis has been curved since childhood, or for as long as he can remember, then there is a very good chance that he has a normal variation of the shape of his penis.  This is called a normal penis curvature and is often simply due to a variation of the size of the internal chambers that make up the body of the penis.   In a congenital curve of the penis there is usually no pain associated with erection or intercourse.

Also, in regard to when the penis curvature occurred, it is not uncommon for Peyronie’s disease to develop after certain medical procedures or treatments:

  1. Use of Viagra, Cialis or Levitra (PDE5 inhibitor drugs) that have been known to cause damage to the internal tissue of the penis when an exaggerated or excessive erection occurs.  For some men this can happen after just one use of these drugs, or for other men after multiple uses that previously did not cause any unusual reaction.
  2. Use of beta-blocker heart medications that are used for chest pain and arrhythmia to name a few.  There are many beta-blockers used, but a few of the more popular are Lopressor LA, Sectral and Tenormin
  3. Use of some cholesterol lowering drugs (statin drug group) that have a long list of known side effects, but recently have been expanded to include Peyronie’s disease.  There are statin drugs in this category, but a few of the more popular are Crestor, Lipitor, Lisinopril and Lovastatin
  4. Having been catheterized as part of surgical procedure, especially when done while under anesthesia while in a hospital setting.  Many times greater force is used to pass the catheter tube through the urethra due to time constraints and urgency, resulting trauma to the penile tissue.

If your husband’s penis curvature started recently or sometime after his teen years when it had been previously straight, then this suggests a problem for which he should make an appointment with a urologist for an examination and diagnosis.  The most common cause of a curved penis that appears after it was previously straight, by far, is Peyronie’s disease.  Other less common causes can be:

  1. Trauma to the penis that causes simple swelling
  2. Trauma that causes penile fracture
  3. Penile cancer, although very rare

Diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease and the curved penis 

Typically, in cases of an adult onset curved penis, there are three primary findings that usually have to be met in order to establish a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease:

1.    Presence of one or more nodules or areas of hardness located under the skin of the shaft.  These localized nodules are not seen on the surface, but a felt by digital examination below the skin; some can be so large that the surface of the skin is elevated from below by the nodule.

2.    Pain, from mild to severe, from occasional to constant, in some area of the penis while erect.  A small percentage of men experience penile pain while flaccid (non-erect), and an even smaller percentage experience pain during both states.

3.    Recent development of curved or bent penis, or some other similar distortion of the penis (bottleneck, hourglass, or indentation). 

A diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease can still be made without one of the above findings, if the other two are dominant and reliable.  Other findings of slightly less frequency and less importance seen during Peyronie’s disease, that are of some value in making a diagnosis  are:

  1. Loss of penis size in terms length and circumference (girth or diameter).
  2. Reduced erectile ability in either the entire shaft or a localized area of it.

The important thing is to not ignore the penile curvature and to do whatever you can to avoid Peyronie’s surgery whenever possible since the side effects can be devastating.

Can weight lifting or masturbation cause Peyronie’s disease?

Dr. Herazy,

A few months ago I noticed a slight curve/tilt in my penis to the left side. I figured it was due to the way I lay when I sleep, and I thought it would go away soon. But, now, it's months later and it hasn't gone away, and I'd say it's gotten a little worse. I'm thinking it's Peyronies Disease, but I'm not sure. I seem to have most of the symptoms: one part of my penis looks like it's pinched, there's an area of inflamed skin on the underside of it, and there's the curvature I mentioned. However, there's no pain (except lately I feel a very minor, dull pain near the inflamed area after ejaculating which lasts for a few minutes, and the curvature also gets worse for a few hours after ejaculating), and the curvature is only maybe 30 degrees to the left at its worst.

Considering there's no significant pain, and considering the curved penis isn't too major and my penis still works just as fine as it did before, is there a chance that it's maybe not Peyronie's Disease? Or maybe a mild form of it? I'm convinced it's from rough masturbation, and if it is, is it possible I can cure it naturally by maybe stopping masturbation and being more careful from now on?

The curvature seemed to show up overnight, but I recently remembered that I noticed the "pinched" area maybe a few months before the curve showed up. So, it seems that this happened gradually (if that makes a difference at all). I also realized that I started lifting weights around the time I noticed the pinch effect, and as I've continued to lift weights it seems like I'm seeing more and more symptoms of Peyronie's Disease. (I haven't physically damaged my penis with weight equipment at all, but I'm wondering if maybe the strain from lifting is stressing my tissue? Could that be a cause?)

Thank you very much, Dr. Herazy, and I'm really hoping I can fix this problem with your advice.


My first advice is to stop guessing and wondering, and make an appointment with a local urologist to have your problem formally diagnosed.  The tissue inflammation and pain after ejaculation are not typical of Peyronie's disease and could indicate other problems. 

Lastly, the strain of weight lifting would not cause Peyronie's disease; if you have it, rough masturbation is much more likely a cause.  Please review the article in the PDI website, Peyronie's disease and masturbation.

If your condition is diagnosed as Peyronies then I suggest you consider putting yourself on a treatment plan to increase your natural ability to reduce and eliminate the foreign fibrous tissue of the PD plaque. Let me know if I can help you in any way.  TRH 

Natural vitamin C for Peyronie’s disease treatment

What does your natural vitamin C have in it?  Why is it called natural? Thank   Dave G


Greetings Dave,

The vitamin C product from Douglas Laboratory is highly regarded for its quality and purity, and is the reason PDI has selected it as part of all Peyronie's disease treatment plans. It contains 1000 mg of ascorbic acid and the full bioflavinoid complex as is found in rose hips.  The base of the rose is a powerful source of vitamin C as it occurs in nature.  The vitamin C in this supplement is extracted from the hip of the rose plant (right below the base of the flower petals) and this is why it is called "natural".  TRH

Neprinol in a Peyronie’s disease treatment plan

I have had Peyronie's disease for about a year now. I have been doing lots of research and plan to purchase your medium plan. I feel that will be a god starting point. I have seen some other options with success stories, in particular, Serracor-NK mixed with Serra RX 80. My question is can I add these supplements to your medium plan in hope to defeat the disease better. Is that healthy, or would that be too much? I read that the Serracor-NK has nattokinase in it which is one of your supplements in the medium plan, so would this be pointless or do you think that would be ok?




It seems most everyone makes changes and adds variations to the basic PDI-based treatment plan.  I cannot comment on the products you mention because I have no direct experience with them.  The problem with using these products is that I have been told that there is little information that has been made available about how to use these products.  

The medium plan is already a well diversified way to increase your ability to reduce your Peyronie's disease. I suggest that you simply start with the medium plan and see what it can do for you as it is presented.  If at a later time you think you might want to add some additional therapy you could always use the products you mentioned.

When you order your medium plan you will be impressed with the amount of information you will receive that describes in great detail how to use each component of the 10 items in that plan.  No one says that they do not understand how to go about using their therapy products after reading the information that is given with each order.

Lastly, in my opinion Neprinol is a better fibrinolytic enzyme product than those you mention, based on the formulation and the feedback I receive from people who have used both.  That is why we promote its use and not other enzyme products.  The ultimate decision is always yours.

Let me know if I can help you in any way.  TRH

Is it possibile for Viagra, or any other medication, to cause Peyronie disease?

Is anyone doing research on the possibility of Viagra causing Peyronie disease or any other type of medication causing this disease?  Mine seems to have started after I took Viagra . Thank you,  Floyd Mathis


Greetings Floyd,

Sorry to hear of your problem with Peyronie's disease.

Yes, there is growing evidence that Viagra, Cialis and Levitra (all the PDE5 inhibitor drugs) can cause Peyronie's disease in some men.  I have reported this and written about this observation for many years now.  You can read more about this topic in these posts from the PDI website:  Viagra Peyronie's disease connection and Viagra, Cialis and Levitra Use with Peyronie’s Disease and Peyronie’s Disease Plaque, Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Blood Supply .  There are more articles that are available but I think you will get the idea from these. 

The basic way the injury happens that leads to the start of Peyronie's disease is from "over inflation" that damages the internal tissue of the penis called the tunica albuginea.

I was talking to a man the other day from Australia whose PD started from just a single use of one of these PDE5 drugs. He told me that he developed an erection that was so hard and large that he was scared what might happen to him.  He said he thought he might explode.  Obviously that was the last and only time he took any drug like that.  About two months later he had three internal Peyronie's plaques and a curved penis of 45 degrees.  Because he did not have any sexual activity for months before that event or after it he is positive it was the drug that injured him. 

He went to his medical doctor who told him that this sometimes happens to men.  You will notice that there is a caution on inside drug product information that warns that men with PD should not use these PDE5 drugs.  

What strikes me as especially careless and inappropriate is that there are medical doctors who actually prescribe Viagra, Cialis and Levitra to men who already have Peyronie's disease to help them have an erection when they show signs of erectile dysfunction.

Yes, there are other drugs that are said to be associated with or to cause Peyronie's disease.  The common list includes beta blockers used for heart problems and all of the statin drugs used to lower cholesterol.    

I suggest that you review some of the Alternative Medicine treatment ideas on the PDI website to learn how you can use Peyronie's natural treatment to help yourself correct this problem.  Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.  TRH 

Vitamin E is not enough therapy for effective Peyronies treatment

Dear Doctor,

I’m 31 and I have been diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease this year. I had trauma during sex in January and after about a month the scar appeared and I started to have pain in the beginning of the erection, and since that time pain varies. During sex I don’t have any pain.

I have changed 3 urologists because they have very very poor knowledge about Peyronies and they said there is no cure for it. One of them said that my body reacts to trauma by making an excessive amount of scar tissue. I mentioned to him that 5 years ago I had trauma on my ear and I had a keloid develop which was removed with an operation. They all want me to wait and see what will happen with the pain and penis curvature. In other words, no treatment until the scar stops growing and pain disappears. When that happens their solution is injection of Verapamil or operation, but I don’t want that especially now when I discovered your website. You already help me a lot in understanding Peyronie’s and I’m continuing reading everything I can on your site.

The scar is on the upward right side and its size was like the bean when I discovered it and after few month it was bigger, and last month my penis bend towards up for about 20 degree (I can send you pictures too). I started taking vitamine E 400mg per day from April, and last month I’m taking 600mg. Now I know that only Vitamin E isn’t enough (and it didn’t help me) and I want to buy some products from your PDI website. Can you help me to decide which program to buy? I’m from Croatia and I would like to order supplies for a few months including CDs and books too, so I don’t have to order every month and wait for it. I’m worry when I order something that I have problems on customs and I don’t get your products. Do you have some experience with that?

Thank you,


Greetings Deni,

Based on what you have described I suggest that you consider getting the PDI medium size plan.

There is indeed a cure for Peyronie’s disease.  The body cures and eliminates the Peyronie’s plaque in about half the men who develop this problem.  That is a rather good success rate.  What the MDs mean is that they do not have any method to help you, although it is obvious that the body generally does a good job of eliminating this problem when given the opportunity. 

We have had some problems with Croatia customs.  I suggest that if you have a friend in the U.S. or the UK that you have your friend receive your plan from PDI.  Your friend could then send these products to you as a gift.  I cannot send an order to you as a gift. This I believe is a legal thing to do and might help you receive what you want.  TRH

Do you have any advice because I am making slow progress with my Peyronies treatment plan?



I now take Neprinol 4 pills 3 times daily, vitamin E 2 pills 400iu 3 times daily, Sulfur 2 pills 3times daily, and Scar x 2 times daily, e oil, and Super CP Serum with DMSO.  Sometimes progress seems very slow but have only been doing this dose for about a month. Have been about half this dose for about 7 months.  Any advice?

Greetings Scott,
If you were taking half of your current plan for seven months it is no wonder your progress is slow.  It is great that you can see progress with your problem after only one month of being on a more aggressive plan.  This is how it should be done.
Your current plan is moderate perhaps compared to others who make progress.  I mention this only to give you an idea what others find they must do to reduce the PD plaque. 
You should not design your plan based on what others do, but only work based on how your tissue responds to what you are doing.  If the scar does not get smaller, softer, less well defined or change the surface texture, then you should consider upping the plan in some way that will increase your ability to break the scar down and remove it.  Again, as I am sure you are tired of reading from me, all plan changes are based on the response of the PD scar or plaque and not the appearance of bent penis.  The scar will guide you to what your body needs to do the job of healing your Peyronie's disease.    
You are taking a large dosage of vitamin E, Scott, so I would suggest not taking any more of it. In fact, you could be taking less vitamin E if you added some vitamin C to your plan (maybe 3,00-5,000 mg daily).  The other therapies can be increased especially the enzymes.    
I also suggest that you add in some additional external therapy, like perhaps the technique found on the gentle manual penis stretching video. This would give you more variety of treatment options.  
You should be slowly and gradually increasing the dosage of your plan every 7-10 days if you do not see improvement with the size, shape, density and surface features of your Peyronie's plaque. 
If you have any specific questions about locating or defining your PD scar or increasing your plan, arrange for a phone discussion soon.   TRH
