Is a penis extender the wrong thing to use for Peyronies?

Hi Dr.

I got Peyronie's disease about 5 years ago through intercourse with my wife. I saw an urologist who prescribed a 3 month dose of pills which failed to do anything so we tried it again. I was then told I could have surgery which made me go into denial. The curve has got worse over the last 2 years and I’m worried about having sex so it's become non existent between the two of us. I am now desperate and have been looking at the penis extender for Peyronies – is this a possible method along with your treatments, or is this the wrong move. I'd like to get started in the right direction.

Thanks R


Greetings R,

You need to do a little bit of reading.  There are many articles and posts I have written about using a mechanical penis stretcher, commonly called a penis extender.  Here are a few links for you to read: Penis stretcher:  Big problem as Peyronies treatment and Penis extender claims and Peyronie's disease and Peyronies treatment and the penis stretcher.

Peyronie's surgery is always something that is proposed when other medical treatment eventually fails.  I would caution you to consider that if your penis has already demonstrated the ability to develop too much scar after a small injury, there is a stronger possibility of an even greater amount of scar occurring as a result of the surgical incisions associated with common penis surgery techniques.  This is the reason that men find their PD worse after having surgery to correct their curved penis.     

From my experience many couples who live with Peyronie's disease in their lives will limit or stop sexual intimacy when it is not necessary to do so.  The problem often is that their medical doctor does not know about or does not take time time to explain, some basic information that would enable a couple to safely engage in intercourse.  I can assure you that within a brief time you would feel a lot more comfortable about resuming sexual relations once a few things have been explained to you. My wife, who is an RN, and I have counseled with many hundreds of couples and helped them to regain that part of their lives by simply sharing some simple information. Contact me if you are interested in learning more.  Additionally, you can get a book that wrote, "Peyronie's Disease and Sex" from the PDI website.       

Getting Peyronie's treatment started in the right direction is easy if you are prepared to spend some time educating yourself on the PDI about Alternative Medicine methods to increase your ability to remove the PD scar naturally.  I did it, and I get emails every week from men who are doing it.  I have come to realize that when the average man even after five years of dealing with Peyronies if he uses a large and diverse program of care and works aggressively will see positive change in 2-4 months in about 80% of cases.

Let me know if I can help you in any way to get your life together.  TRH
